Anthem, AZ Real Estate Market Report – June 2013 Country Club

The Anthem Country Club housing market continues to cool a bit as the temperatures start to rise. The number of homes sold in June decreased from May. And again, the average sale price declined relative to May.  The year over year comparison is starting to narrow a bit too.  The twelve month moving average is 10% above the same period last year.  The sale price/list price percentage is starting to decrease as well, signifying that sellers have maybe become a bit too aggressive in their pricing strategy.  Days on market have also been increasing.  These two little trends may be signifying a slowing in the market.  There are currently 54 homes actively on the market with 29 under contract, in the Country Club.

Here are the numbers for the Country Club through June 2013:
