Anthem AZ Real Estate – Market report October 2010

The Anthem AZ real estate market continues to slow down a bit as we approach the fall and winter months. The number of homes actively on the market decreased, and the number of homes that closed in October increased.   The average sales price of homes sold in October declined, but the average price per sq. ft. increased slightly. Which tells us that there were more lower priced homes that sold dragged down the average sale price, but the price of those homes are remaining strong as evidenced by the price per sq. ft.   The number of days on market remains fairly high.  This could be due to the number of short sales that are still dominating the market.   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.
