September, 2018 Phoenix area real estate report

 

 

After a small step back in July, home prices got back to their usual ways again last month, showing nice growth. The continued growth is encouraging to see given the fact that rising interest rates usually slow home purchasing activity down. These price increases show that demand in the Phoenix market continues to be strong as the region grows. The complete, latest numbers are below.

 

The overall average home price in August increased by 0.8%, moving from $324,095 to $326,938. The increase over August 2018 was 8.3%. The average price per square foot decreased to $161.

 

Inventory stayed level at 14,083 homes for sale, as did the number of homes sold at 7,802. 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 home prices stayed completely the same. 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 0.8% of the market and 0.3% respectively. They continue to be an insignificant portion of the market.
