February, 2017 Phoenix area real estate report

 

 

Prior to this month we had predicted that the stronger than normal holiday months at the end of 2016 would lead to a good beginning for real estate in 2017. That came to fruition, and prices experienced a nice increase.

 

The overall average home price in January increased by 1.2%, moving from $284,987 to $288,418. The increase over January 2016 was 5.5%. The average price per square foot increased to $168.

 

Inventory increased slightly to 18,207 homes for sale, and the number of sold homes decreased to 5,710. This indicates that there is a 3 month supply of homes on the market, which is the definition of a balanced market between buyers and sellers.

 

The breakdown of homes currently available stayed relatively even this month. The percentages of available homes are: $0-$150,000 (8% of the market), $150,000-$250,000 (27%), $250,000-$500,000 (38%), $500,000+ ($27%).

 

Foreclosures and short sales continue to stay at their record low rates of 1.1% of the market and 0.8% respectively. They continue to be an insignificant portion of the market.
