Luxury Housing Market January 2017
Defining the Luxury Housing Market for this article?
For purposes of this article let us assume a luxury home is anything listed for sale over $1,000,000. While you may find a lot of homes in the Phoenix area that offer an array of luxurious items at under the Million dollar mark, we need a cutoff, and for no particular reason beyond a place to start the $1,000,000 is the lower end. This report will also include: townhomes and condos as well.
There several areas around metro Phoenix which offer million dollar homes including: Scottsdale, Ahwatukee, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek to name a few. For purposes of this update, I will just be taking a look at all Phoenix Luxury homes for sale and recent luxury homes sold in the entire Metro Phoenix area.

Homes are indeed selling. One thing to keep in mind when looking to sell your higher end home, is to make sure to price it right. There are many homes on market, and only a small percentage are selling. Those that are selling are priced well, and those that are no, well those are sitting on the market longer.
Also good Statistic to know:
Months Inventory 15.78
The luxury market tends to be different than traditional real estate under the $1 million sales price. Days on market tends to be higher, as well as months of inventory. We are in a buyer market for luxury homes in Phoenix and as such luxury home buyers have a pretty big selection of homes from which to choose.
Keep in mind, this does take the entire multiple listing service homes into consideration, so some areas may have less inventory, this is the birds’ eye view. In general though, with as much competition as there is for the luxury buyer, sellers should expect to get less than asking price on their home, unless home is priced real well and inventory in the area is lower, and/or home is SUPER DISERABLE.
