Anthem Trick or Treat for a Sweet…..

Trick or Treat for an Anthem Sweet

 

Friday, October 31, the Anthem Community Council (ACC) invites all Anthem businesses and families to enjoy the fourth annual Trick-or-Treat for an Anthem Sweet event!

This free, community-wide, business trick-or-treat event provides a safe, family-friendly environment by encouraging all little ghosts and goblins, Valley-wide, to trick-or-treat store-to-store at Anthem’s commercial properties. Last year, hundreds of kids turned out to trick-or-treat in their spookiest costumes at nearly 70 participating Anthem businesses.

The event, now quickly becoming a family tradition, encourages Anthem businesses to participate in order to enhance their exposure, strengthen potential customer base, and engage with current and future potential customers.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m., residents can visit the ACC Community Center for the annual Monster Ball.

For more information call Jamie Flores at 623-742-4558

View of New River, AZ to the North

 

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.

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

Anthem Country Club photo

The Anthem Country Club real estate market saw an uptick in activity (homes sold) in the month of July, however, the average sale price declined sharply. The average price fluctuates greatly on a monthly basis, so this decline might be simply explained by the fact that more lower priced homes sold versus those in the upper price tiers, thereby dragging down the average. The 12 month moving average, which now stands at $401,050, continues to show increases month over month and is currently up 12% over last year. The days on market decreased slightly compared to June, much lower than a year ago. The list to sales price decreased slightly as well. That coupled with the days on market may suggest that sellers are starting to negotiate their home sales in line with the market trend.  The number of homes currently on the market stands at 85, a 12% decrease from June, and 21% higher than this time last year, which could possibly be 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 18.
