 Mesa, AZMonday Jan 30 2023This week the median list price for Mesa, AZ is $490,000 with the market action index hovering around 40. This is an increase over last month's market action index of 39. Inventory has decreased to 807. Click here to stay informed with the Mesa market! While the Market Action Index shows some strengthening in the last few weeks, prices have not seemed to move from their plateau.

Millbridge in Waxhaw, NCHome Sales Report & Neighborhood Spotlight: Millbridge home sales remained robust throughout 2022 with both average and median sale prices increasing for the year ended December 31, 2022. What softening we saw in 2022 was a 1% decrease in the list to sales price ratio and an increase in average days on market to 17 days. Home sales were down 30%, but much of that is attributable to the fact that new construction has wound down considerably since 2021 as the neighborhood nears completion. Much of the softening we saw in the Millbridge market not surprisingly came about in Quarter 4-2022. While average and median sale prices increased somewhat, they were down compared with Quarter 3-2022. The list to sale price ratio was also lower in the Fourth Quarter and average...

Oh no, the real estate market’s shifting! Is it a “bubble” about to pop? Will prices come crashing down? How much higher will mortgage rates go? Will they come down again? Is it a buyers’ market, or are sellers still in the driver seat?All of that may sound custom tailored to the current market, but those are concerns homeowners, buyers, and agents alike all ponder on a recurring basis. The real estate market is constantly changing, and every few years it goes through a fairly significant shift.Successful agents who stand the test of time don’t rely on a “hot” market or favorable headlines about real estate. They know times can get tough, and the market is never absolutely ideal for every potential buyer, seller, or homeowner. But it’s always a good market for some people to buy or sell...

Greenfield is located in Centennial, with some of this neighborhood in the City of Aurora.    It is located off Arapahoe Road & Picadilly in the South part of the Metro Denver area.   It is located in Cherry Creek School District, which is just one reason this neighborhood is popular! I like to stay on top of the statistics for the community, and nice to review the numbers every month, or at least every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.   For  November, there was only one sale and in December, there was none.   For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.     Here are the sales for all of 2022 - 25 homes sold ranging from $509,900 to $1,000,000 (2021 had 33 sales)The average Days on Market we...

What Past Recessions Tell Us About the Housing Market It doesn’t matter if you’re someone who closely follows the economy or not, chances are you’ve heard whispers of an upcoming recession. Economic conditions are determined by a broad range of factors, so rather than explaining them each in depth, let’s lean on the experts and what history tells us to see what could lie ahead. As Greg McBride, Chief Financial Analyst at Bankrate, says: “Two-in-three economists are forecasting a recession in 2023 . . .” As talk about a potential recession grows, you may be wondering what a recession could mean for the housing market. Here’s a look at the historical data to show what happened in real estate during previous recessions to help prove why you shouldn’t be afraid of what a recession could mea...

Are property values on Cape Cod going to fall?The obvious factors that could potentially lead to a decline in property values on Cape Cod, are:    Economic recession: IF the local economy enters a recession, it could lead to a decline in property values as fewer people will be able to afford to buy homes.    Inventory: If the number of homes for sale on Cape Cod somehow more than doubles to quickly exceed the number of buyers in the current buyer pool, that could lead to a decline in property values, because sellers would probably need to lower their expectations of value in order to attract buyers.    New regulations: Regulations such as Title 6, the new septic regulations in Massachusetts, could lead to increased costs for homeowners, which could be passed on to buyers in the form of ...

Inflation seems to be a constant threat, in the news headlines and in your pocketbook. The Federal Reserve (Fed), in an attempt to curb inflation, has started to increase short-term interest rates. This doesn't mean that it won't have an effect on the economy. We will discuss how rising Fed interest rates impact home buyers and other stakeholders.Why did the Fed raise interest rates?The Federal Reserve has two main missions: to stabilize prices and to maintain moderate long-term interest rates. Inflation is a topic of hot debate if you have been following the news.  Although there are many reasons why the economy is experiencing rapid price increases, the Fed is the only one that can control them. Let's take an in-depth look at how this happened. The global pandemic is a result of three...

December 2022 - Video Scottsdale Active Listings We saw another year-over-year jump (117%) in listings.

The current real estate market is shifting back to a more balanced market. Consumers are hearing the current market described as “returning to a normal market”. I believe a better characterization to be a more balanced market. My primary reason for saying that is that a more normal market would be one where prices would be decreasing due to increased interest rates, which is not really the case in this local market, and that there would be higher inventory creating declining pricing. With limited inventory, pricing is fairly stabilized, or in some cases increasing locally.Balance means opportunities for buyers and sellers.Buyers - Opportunity to offset costs of higher interest rates than a year ago with seller incentive opportunities.Sellers - Low inventory continues to keep prices at h...

The stats are out for the month of December, and the numbers reflect the seasonal slowdown this time of year, along with interest rates bounding around.   The inventory declined 21% from last month, but increased 68% over last year.  The inventory has not moved much since the beginning of the year. This data is courtesy of Joan Cox - House to Home, Inc. I track data daily for the Denver metro area, and the amount of price reductions have dropped and homes returning to market have dropped below 200 a week.   The inventory this time of year is seasonally low, and is hovering around 4,400.  (includes land up to high-end homes) See what homes are currently available - Active Homes for sale in Denver Buyers - If you have thought about buying a home this year, rates are down a bit, but the go...

Lawson Neighborhood in Waxhaw, NCReal Estate Report & Neighborhood Spotlight It was a strong showing for Lawson homes both in the Fourth Quarter 2022 and throughout 2022. Home sale prices increased year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter. To the extent the Lawson market shifted, it was in higher days on market, which increased to 31 days by the Fourth Quarter, and a lower list to sale price ratio, which was just under 100% in the Fourth Quarter.  Inventory remained tight in Lawson throughout 2022 and was down year-over-year. Just 50 homes sold in 2022 out of 600+ homes in the neighborhood. No doubt, this accounts for sale prices that increased throughout the year. In December 2022, the median sale price of a home in Lawson exceeded $700,000 on a rolling 12-month basis and set a new reco...
