bank owned homes: Anthem Real Estate - Market Report Sept. 2011 - 10/25/11 02:43 PM
Activity increased in Anthem for the month of September. And the average sale price ticked back up again.   Overall for the entire 2011 year, the average sale price is only down 3.1% from a a year ago.   The number of homes on market is inched up again to 209, about a 2 months supply. The number of homes currently under contract edged down slightly.  Year over year sales have fallen by 25%. I would still say it looks like the  Anthem real estate market is steadily becoming a seller's market.  Here are the numbers for September 2011:

bank owned homes: Anthem AZ, Real Estate - Market Report Country Club Aug. 2011 - 09/08/11 09:43 AM
Country Club homes sales fell off sharply in August, down to only 1 closing.  So analysis of month to month and year over are pointless due to the small sample size.  One positive note is that the number of homes under contract did increase by 27%  over July.  So we should see improved sales numbers in September and the subsequent months.  Here's a look at the numbers for August:

bank owned homes: Anthem, AZ Real Estate - Country Club June 2011 - 08/10/11 01:32 PM
The Country Club section of Anthem hit a snag in June.  Sales were anemic, with only 8 homes closing during the entire month.  The average sale price continues to stabilize however.  And it looks like the bargain basement homes may be a thing of the past in the Country Club.  Here's a look at the numbers for June:

bank owned homes: Anthem AZ real estate - Market report June 2011 - 08/10/11 01:31 PM
June saw a continued slow down in the Anthem real estate market.  The number of homes on market is inching up, and the number of homes currently under contract and sold continues to inch down.  Year over year sales have fallen by 54%. However, a bright spot in the market is that the average sale price increased by 8% over May and was only off 10% from June 2010.  With the mixed bag of news it is difficult to determine where the Anthem real estate market is heading.  Here are the numbers for June 2011:

bank owned homes: Phoenix real estate - Market report for May 2011 - 08/10/11 01:30 PM
May continued to show a drop off in the number of homes sold in Phoenix.  The number of homes on the market is currently 4,742, with a burn rate of a little over 2 months.  And there are 5,594 homes in pending status as well.   The average sale price is starting to stabilize as well as the bottom of the market seems to be near. There are still some very good deals on the market as noted by the lowest priced homes sold, however, my hunch is that these were extreme fixer uppers.  Maybe even tear downs.  The luxury end of … (0 comments)

bank owned homes: You Gotta Move... - 08/10/11 01:27 PM
In addition to be one of my favorite songs by the Rolling Stones (originally written and performed by Fred McDowell), 'You Gotta Move" could very well be the mantra for home buyers in the Phoenix area searching for homes less than $100,000.

Over the past couple of years this segment of the Phoenix real estate market has been H-O-double T HOT!!!  And if you're a buyer or investor in this price range you better move on a property quick.  AND you're probably going to have to make a full priced offer.
In the last year, according to our Phoenix MLS … (0 comments)

bank owned homes: Anthem home prices - Things are stabilizing... - 08/10/11 01:26 PM
No doubt Anthem real estate prices have been hit hard by the downturn in the market over the past four years.  But upon close analysis we're seeing that prices may have hit bottom and are truly stabilizing:
I've compiled a quick analysis of home prices in Anthem over the past five years through present (August 6th, 2011 as of this post):
Average Sale Price                      % Change Y.O.Y.

bank owned homes: Anthem rental market is hot... - 05/23/11 03:44 PM
Not only is the Anthem home resale market picking up steam but the rental market in Anthem has been red hot for the past year or so.  With tighter lending restrictions and many people with damaged credit rentals have become a highly demanded commodity in Anthem.
Over the last six months 192 homes have been leased in Anthem.
The average lease price for those 192 homes was $1,437 per month for a 2,133 sq. ft. home on average.  The average days on market for these rentals was only 28 days.

Acadia floor plan The Acadia, or sometimes referred to as the Durango model is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with den and great room living area format.  With a unique diagonal entry way the Acadia is one of the more popular models in the Anthem Country Club.  Many homeowners chose to have an optional front yard casita built as well with this model.  The Acadia offers 1,741 sq. ft. of living space.  With casita the square footage is approximately 150 sq. ft. larger, plus the additional bedroom and bathroom.  The current value of Acadia's is between $152,000-$213,500 depending on whether … (2 comments)

bank owned homes: Anthem AZ Real Estate - Market Report April 2011 - 05/14/11 12:20 PM
April continued the positive streak in the number of homes sold in Anthem.  Again, typical of this time of year.  We're still quite a bit off of last year's pace.  That may be explained by the fact that the "bargains" are fastly disappearing from the market.  And there are fewer bank owned homes on the market in Anthem as, therefore buyers are relegated to purchasing short sales, which take much longer to close.  In fact, there are fewer homes PERIOD on the market in Anthem, with only 149 active listings at this time, approaching levels we haven't seen 2005/06.  Pending sales … (2 comments)
