The state of residential real estate in the valley continues to confound. Choices for buyers are limited.  Multiple counter offers driving up prices is the order of the day.  Disappointed would-be buyers are numerous, with many throwing in the towel because they continue to be outbid.   Worrisome to me is affordability.  Prices are being driven so high that the bottom (pricing) rung of buyers are getting priced out.   What is causing all of  this?   Some point to builders of new homes being too conservative for too long since getting their pants handed to them during the housing crises, added to large numbers of  home buyers moving here, complicated by ibuyers (Open Door, Offer pad, Invitation Homes) purchasing and flipping or holding as rental.  Indeed, the ibuyer segment is now approximately 10 % of purchases.

However! The overwhelming number of closed sales continues to go to owner occupants.   A determined buyer prepared to compete can do it! 



The market is always changing and evolving but the seller’s market going on for a few years now has intensified since mid 2020.  Below, this image from The Cromford Report shows their market index hocky sticking  in seller’s favor.   This chart quantifies what we are seeing anecdotally.  

Are you looking for  assistance to make your next real estate sale or acquisition?  My clients tell me they appreciate my desire to bring about results on their behalf and I am pleased to share their testimonials with you!   I’ve been happily representing sellers and buyers achieve their goals and dreams  since January 2003,  specifically in the metro areas of  Ahwatukee, Ocotillo, Chandler,  Tempe, Baseline Corridor/South Mountain Village, Mesa, Gilbert, Central Phoenix and Scottsdale. 

My approach is fairly straightforward:  I advise, provide consultative expertise, as much information as you require, up to date market stats, outstanding market knowledge, and allow you breathing room to make the decision that is best for you – and on your time frame.  My role is not to “sell” you, but to be the best real estate advisor possible.  Please call or email, I look forward to discussing how we can best work together to achieve your goal.
