The Anthem real estate market showed us a little love in February, but there are still some unsettling signs being posted. The total number of homes sold was up 17% from January, and up 39% over February 2016.  The average sale price was down 14% from January and up 4% year over year.  The 12 month moving average was flat again month over month, and up only 1% from last year.  The price per square foot was also flat versus January and down 1% year over year. The days on market increased dramatically, now standing at 105 days, up 69% from January and up 36% from February 2016. The burn rate, (or homes under contract versus homes on the market) is now about 2.58 month’s supply, still signalling a sellers market.  There are now 190 homes on the market in Anthem, and 120 homes pending/under...

The Scottsdale real estate market started the new year on an up note. The numbers are still not fantastic, but we're seeing signs of a potentially bright 2017.  Sales activity was down 10% from December and up 25% over last January, but the number of homes pending bodes well for a big February and March. The average sale price was up 4% over December, but down 2% from January 2016.  The 12 month moving average sale price was also flat month over month and increased only 2% year over year,  now standing at $510,350.  The number of homes on the market is 3,212, up 2% over December with the days on market at 112, 3% more than last year.  The burn rate (homes pending/home sold) is at 3.87 months, a fairly dramatic shift back to a more balanced market.  And the highest selling home for the m...

The Phoenix, AZ real estate market started 2017 a little slow.  The number of homes sold in January was down 18% from December, but up 9% over last year. The year over year price increase continues to move in the right direction, up 7% over January 2016. The 12 month moving average sale price is now $257,898, up 7% from the previous year and continuing to close in on our pre crash highs.  The number of homes on the market is 3,921, up 2% from December,  with the days on market at 74, up 6% over last year and still within the benchmark of a seller's market.  The "Burn Rate" (pending sales/active listings) has decreased to 2.59 months supply due to the dramatic increase in pending sales (up 31% over December). Based on the pending sales we can expect a pretty robust February report for th...

 January marked the return of sales of the larger homes in the Anthem Country Club.. The total number of homes sold in the Country Club decreased slightly from December, but was up slightly year over year.  The average sale price jumped greatly over December 2016, most likely attributed to larger, more expensive homes selling. Year over year the average sale price increased by 10% and the price per square foot continued to move up, 5% year over year.  The days on market continued to move down, and the burn rate, (or homes under contract versus homes on the market) is now  4.84 month’s supply. One thing to watch closely is the 12 month moving average, which dropped again year over year (-4%).  There are  now  96  homes on the market in the Club, up 13% from December.  If January is any i...

 January kicked off the New Year on an upbeat for the Anthem Parkside real estate market. Home sales were up 11% over December, and 28% from last year.  The average sale price continued its slow trajectory upward, about ½% over last year.  And the average price per square foot remained the same year over year for the Parkside. The average days on market decreased a bit from December but was up 34% year over year. The inventory of homes on the market is at 2.33 month’s supply, a strong seller’s market. The 12 month moving average, $287,648 is up 5% from last year, a nice steady rate of appreciation.  And the number of homes currently on the market is 88, while the number of homes currently under contract in the Parkside is 66. Overall the market is strong and looking good heading into th...

December gave us a mixed bag in the Serenity Villas real estate market. The total number of homes sold in December dropped to 1, half as much as both November 2016 and December 2015 in The Villas.  The days on market for the home that sold decreased dramatically from November, and was down 35% from last year.  There are 2 homes on the market in The Villas at this time and the 12 month moving average price, $154,111 continues to edge up, 5% versus 2015,  Currently there are 4 homes under contract in The Villas.  Combined with the numbers in the Anthem Parkside and Anthem Country Club we can say that there was definitely a slow down in the Anthem real estate market in the second half of 2016.Here are the latest stats for the 30 days ending 12/31/16:Active Listings: 2Homes Pending: 4Homes ...

Anthem Real Estate & Information The city of Anthem, Arizona is a master-planned community centrally located between downtown Phoenix, about 32 miles away, and the city of Flagstaff, less than 2 hours drive by car or recreational vehicle.  It is an ideal location for those that want the best of both worlds — close proximity to the restaurants, sporting venues, and nightlife of Phoenix, and easy access to I-17, the nearby Carefree Highway, and the cooler temperatures of recreational areas near Flagstaff, Prescott and Sedona, in the northern part of the state.  Because of its proximity at the base of a mountain, temperatures are typically 2-3 degrees cooler in Anthem, and the town sees an average of 85 percent sunshine, and 13.28 percent precipitation. As they say in Anthem, life here is...
