Arizona Regional MLS 2011 Stats

Best friendsIt is a pleasure to be able to share some positive real estate statistics as we begin 2012. Although our main interest area, Active Adults, is not featured in the statistics gathering, it is closely related.  The indications are that selling your home in 2012 will be faster and ever so slightly more profitable.  That is encouraging as many of our clients have delayed their retirement move to Arizona based on the lagging prices and sales all over the country.  We should be seeing sold signs planted with the spring flowers!

Is the New Home market picking up?

new-construction

The Arizona Republic today has an article about Signs of Life in the new construction home market.  Reading through the article the only real “news” is that the New Home Builders are buying up land again.  The article mentioned the amount of $90 million purchased recently.   This lets me know that the builders are seeing and expecting more home sales.

Hopefully they are correct, and the trend of confidence in the housing market continues.
