Maricopa Arizona Homes for Sale - Market Report 23OCT12
There is not a whole lot to report on this week as all of the key indicators are trending in the same direction as past few reports (see Maricopa AZ Housing Market Data). Inventory of active listings for subdivision homes for sale in Maricopa AZ continues to rise at a relatively steady rate. Without a doubt, I have noticed a lot more out-of-state license plates in the past week or so which indicates that many of our seasonal residents/buyers are returning. We have also experienced quite a few more inquiries since my … (0 comments)

maricopa az home sales: Maricopa Arizona Homes For Sale - Weekly Market Update 31MAY - 05/31/11 01:19 AM
This is an update to the weekly report that details the market of homes for sale for subdivision homes in Maricopa AZ.

Moody's Investors Service downgraded Bank of America ratings on collections and loss mitigation services citing a "deterioration".
Bank of America was among several major lenders that signed consent orders with the Department of the Treasury after an investigation into their loss mitigation practices.

maricopa az home sales: Maricopa Arizona Homes For Sale - Weekly Market Report 12APR - 04/13/11 02:59 AM
Here is the update to my weekly report. I got it out a little late this week as I have been swamped!!
Inventory of homes for sale in the subdivisions of Maricopa Arizona continues to decline, albeit at a slower rate. Buying activity is still strong but has lessened slightly due to the annual migration of our "snowbirds".

maricopa az home sales: S & P Estimates Shadow Inventory is at $450 Billion Dollars - 03/25/11 07:40 AM
Standard and Poors estimates that this is the principle balance of residential properties in foreclosure but not yet on the market. They categorize the shadow inventory as containing loans at least 90-days delinquent or somewhere in the foreclosure process, and properties taken into REO.
At the current pace of home sales, they predict it would take 49 months to clear this inventory.It should be noted that this is a national average and definitely needs to be adjusted for local markets. For example, they claim that, given the current rates in the Phonix market, we only have 30 months of this inventory and that … (1 comments)
