Anthem Country Club Council Budget Meeting…..

Picture of meeting   Residents are invited to provide comments on the 2015 Budget at a special meeting Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Anthem Civic Building. The ACC Board will be evaluating proposed funding for programs and services. The final 2015 Budget will be considered by the Board of Directors at their Oct. 22 meeting. Anthem residents and business owners are encouraged to attend both meetings. The development of the 2015 ACC Budget began mid-summer. Department directors develop budgets with a zero-based approach and work up, considering objectives that both the ACC Board of Directors and executive management have set for the year, as well as factoring in continuing community service improvements. Prior to presenting the 2015 Budget to the public, the budget process includes several internal reviews, as well as a thorough review by the ACC Fiscal and Resource Management (FaRM) committee, comprised of community residents who volunteer to provide their financial and management expertise. The public budget meeting agenda and supporting documents are available for viewing.

Anthem, AZ Real Estate Market Report August 2014 – Parkside

Picture of community park playground

 

The Anthem Parkside real estate market continued its summer duldrums in August. The average sale price edged up, but the price per square foot remained flat. The total number of homes sold in Parkside in August slipped to 48. There are currently 140 homes on the market in Parkside, a 10%decrease from July and only 14% more than August 2013, right about the time we started seeing the  brakes hit on the torrid market of 2012 and early 2013. . The days on market increased to 69, 7% less than a year ago. The 12 month moving average price is still up, 8% versus the same time last year, but again, we saw no increase in that figure month over month.. Currently there are 52 homes under contract in Parkside. The “Burn Rate” now stands at 3.41 month’s supply, continuing its upward trend over the past year. The only real positive we’re seeing in the Anthem Parkside real estate market is that the number of homes on the market continues to decline, which will start to put upward pressure on prices.

Anthem, AZ Real Estate Market Report July 2014 – Country Club

The Anthem Country Club real estate market had a little down tick in August, but the average sale price increased over July. The better indicator is the year over year comparisons. The August 2014 average sale price was off 2% from a year ago. Also noteworthy is the Sale/List price is down 2% from a year ago. The 12 month moving average, which now stands at $401,456, barely nudged up over the last reading and is currently up 10% over last year. The days on market increased dramatically over July, much higher than a year ago. This, along with the continued decline in the sale/list price ratio, indicate that many homeowners whose homes have been on the market. are willing to reduce their prices and negotiate on said price as well. The number of homes currently on the market stands at 73, a 14% decrease from July, and only 4% greater than last year, possibly the result of sellers pulling their homes off the market, waiting for the market to improve. The number of homes currently under contract in the Country Club is 13.
