anthem: Anthem Country Club Market Report - 2nd Qtr. 2015 - 07/06/15 10:52 AM

The second quarter of 2015 showed mixed signals for the Anthem Country Club real estate market. Home sales were up dramatically from the first quarter of the year as well as the same time last year.  The drop in the average sale price year over year (-2%) is still a bit of a concern, but much like last quarter, the smaller, less expensive homes are selling which is still holding the average sale price down a bit.  Homes in the $500k + range are still taking a bit longer to sell but we did see a million dollar plus sale in … (0 comments)

anthem: Anthem, AZ Country Club Market Report: 1st Qtr 2015 - 04/08/15 10:28 AM


The first quarter of 2015 finished with a bit of a whimper in the Anthem Country Club real estate market. Home sales are off slightly from the same time last year as we head into the prime “selling season”. The drop in the average sale price year over year (-6%) tells me that the smaller, less expensive homes are selling, dragging the average down.  Homes in the $500k + range are taking a bit longer to sell these days.  However, the average price per square foot did increase, ever so slightly.  But, the average days on market of those homes that … (0 comments)
