The 2nd quarter of 2016 really picked up nicely for the Anthem Country Club real estate market. The total number of homes sold in the Country Club increased greatly over the 1st quarter but slightly less than the 2nd quarter 2015.  The average sale price increased over the 1st quarter but dropped off from 2016, and the price per square foot continued to move up, 4% year over year.  The days on market moved down, but the burn rate, (or homes under contract versus homes on the market) is now about 4.5 month’s supply. One thing to watch closely is the 12 month moving average, which dropped for the first time in a long time year over year (-2%).  There are now 85 homes on the market in the Club, down 22% from the 1st quarter 2016 and 14% less than the 2nd Qtr 2016.  All in all, the Anthem C...

Here is our entry for the: Show Us Your Home for the Summer...The 2016 Mid Year Challenge There are many Farmer's Markets in the Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale area. One of the closest to where we live is in Anthem, AZ. It does not run year round due to the summer temperatures. It is convenient and some of our favorite vendors from the larger venues do grace this Sunday morning market with their presence! The photo was taken yesterday - Father's Day - with the temperature already well over 100 degrees - the high yesterday was 118 degrees! - so the turn out was quite small compared to other days. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Click the button below to Subscr...
