Quality, timely information and insight are at an all-time premium. Being quick into escrow that you eventually walk from is the ultimate frustration … and time waste.

Days-on-Market? How about minutes?

Maricopa County Active Listings

The Problem
no homes available

 Maricopa County has had the highest in-migration of ANY county in the USA every month for 3+ years

… this chart illustrates the decreasing “supply” of homes being offered for sale … that those new arrivals are facing.

Housing Supply Strength

MOS = Months of Supply

an example …. if you have 136 listings at the start of the month and then 100 sales that month, the MOS would be 1.36 … the current overall MOS for Maricopa County … incredibly low

The Bottom Line
Strong Seller’s Market

This “Relative Strength” measures the MOS for the most recent month compared to the 10-year average MOS for that month.

Only a combination of condition issues and over-pricing, or bad location, will keep a property from selling reasonably promptly in the current metro-Phoenix market when listed under $500,000.
