June, 2018 Phoenix area real estate report

 

 

The busy spring selling season wrapped up on a high note once again, showing very strong gains in pricing and the number of homes sold last month. There continues to be projections that interest rate increases could slow the rate of purchasing, but with rental rates also rising, in most cases buyers are still finding it less expensive to purchase rather than rent. The complete, latest numbers are below.

 

The overall average home price in May increased by 2.4%, moving from $327,474 to $335,288. The increase over May 2017 was 10.1%. The average price per square foot decreased to $184.

 

Inventory decreased again to 14,019 homes for sale, and the number of homes sold jumped to 9,601. 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 currently available stayed steady with the exception that homes under $150,000 continues to be an almost non-existant portion of the market. The percentages of available homes are: $0-$150,000 (4% of the market), $150,000-$250,000 (19%), $250,000-$500,000 (44%), $500,000+ ($33%).

 

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.
