Anthem AZ real estate – Market report May 2010

The Anthem AZ real estate market continues to imrpove and strengthen as we approach the summer buying months. The number of homes actively on the market increased slightly. However, the number of homes that are pending and those that sold in May continue to head up. And, as has been the trend over the past year, the average sale price increased. But the most impressive turn of events is the number of days on market average, which dropped to 72 days. Anthem is leading the valley in the category of fewest days on market per sold home. The burn rate remains at 2 months. Based on these statistics we are in a full fledged seller’s market in Anthem. Albeit most sales will be short sales for some time to come as most Anthem home owners have not recovered the lost equity caused by the steep market downturn.

If you or someone you know are considering purchasing a home in Anthem, now’s the time.

Here are the lastest stats for the week ending 5/31/10:

Active Listings:231 (Up 6% from May ’09)

Homes sold in last 30 days: 108 (Up 10% from April ’10, Up 7% from May ’09)

  1. Great post, very interesting concept. You make a good point that all the factors need to come into play. Selecting a good property agent is most important for property management who helps you throughout the buying process and beyond to completion.
