Anthem AZ real estate – Market report August 2010

The Anthem AZ real estate market has begun to show some signs of cooling off during the hot summer months. The number of homes actively on the market increased a bit more.  And the number of homes that closed in August dipped a bit as well.  This could be due to the end of the first time home buyer tax credit as well as the seasonal end of summer/back to school lull.  For the first time in quite a while we failed to see the average sales price increase. In addition, the number of days on market average increased dramatically to 142 days. Both of these last two statistics may be due to more short sale homes selling.   The burn rate remains at 2 months. Based on these statistics we are still 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.
