Anthem AZ real estate market update Dec. ’08


The real estate market in Anthem seems to have reached a bit of an equlibrium. The number of homes actively on the market fell slighthly and the market in general seems to be stabilizing. We saw prices decline in December, but again, they’re not dropping at a rapid pace. Days on market decreased which indicates the bargain hunter are starting to sweep into the market and pick up the best deals.
