August, 2018 Phoenix area real estate report

 

 

Home prices took a small step back in July, although several cities around the Phoenix area experienced gains. Given the strength of the previous several months, it is not surprising to see a pause, and it would not be surprising for there to be an additional one this month. However all trends are still looking very favorable. The complete, latest numbers are below.

 

The overall average home price in July decreased by 3.3%, moving from $335,288 to $324,095. The increase over July 2017 was 8.2%. The average price per square foot increased to $231.

 

Inventory stayed level at 14,212 homes for sale, even as the number of homes sold dipped a little to 8,086. The numbers indicate that there is just a one and a half month supply of homes on the market, which is a seller's market.

 

The breakdown of homes showed some changes, with homes over $500,000 taking a significant 5% dip. The percentages of available homes are: $0-$150,000 (4% of the market), $150,000-$250,000 (21%), $250,000-$500,000 (47%), $500,000+ ($28%).

 

Foreclosures and short sales continue to stay at their record low rates of 0.7% of the market and 0.4% respectively. They continue to be an insignificant portion of the market.
