Top 10 Zip Codes in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area for Showing Activity

Phoenix, Arizona Real Estate Market Activity Report  2/17/2012

According to the Arizona Regional MLS, lockbox activity showed a gain of10.6% this week from the report posted on 2/10/2012.  There were 36,232 opens.  ARMLS took all the showings and broke it down by zip code and calculated the hot and cold spots across the valley.

Top 10 Phoenix Zip Codes of Lockbox Showings

When looking at the two maps, it’s interesting to note that the multiple hot spots tend to be on the outskirts of the valley in areas that began booming heavily at the height of the market between 2004-2006.  Some of those areas, like Surprise, North Phoenix and Anthem experienced some of the biggest declines when the economy turned.  See Each Zip Code's Details

Many of these zip codes are also known for winter home buyers and retirees, such as Sun City, Fountain Hills, Scottsdale, and Mesa.  This supports my own experience over the past few months in working with buyers.  People began looking for second homes and a place to retire again.

I compared the number of active listings within each zip code to the number of showings during the week to see how active each zip code was.  Top 3 active zip codes turned out to be:

1.       North Scottsdale 85255 ranking  No 2 in overall showings with 643 active listings and 829 lock box opens, or 78% showing activity

2.       Surprise 85374 ranking No 6 in overall showings with 505 active listings and 658 showings, or 77% showing activity

3.       Scottsdale 85258 ranking No 8 in overall showings with 390 active listings and 603 lock box opens, or 64% showing activity

To see a separate map of each zip code in the top 10 with the number of listings and the number of showings for that zip code, click PHOENIX TOP 10 ZIP CODES.  If you have any questions about the zip code you live in or would like a complementary market analysis for your specific home and/or neighborhood, please call or email Kelli Grant.

The bigger and hotter the dot, the more opens for that area. Dots are placed on the center of each zip code range.

Phoenix Hot Spots for Real Estate Showings

* This data does not include listings with contractor lockboxes that require a manual entry code to open the lockbox versus a realtor’s lockbox key.  This data also includes multiple showings at one property, whether it’s different buyers or the same buyer viewing a property multiple times.
