Weather wise, this year in Green Valley has been quite spectacular to say the least. Ususally June is our warmest month, but June has been quite a bit milder this year, reminding me of last year's June abnormailly mild June. And of course this means, it has also been a great year for hiking, golf, tennis, birding, or just about anything else that relates to outdoor activities. You could always add, that has been a great June to sight see and or just kick back and relax.
Our single family, townhome, and condo inventory stands at 783 today. That is quite a bit lower number than the 9 hundred or so that has been the common denominator for the last 2 years. Well, there have been and still are some great deals to be gotten here. We have been fortunate to be able to help out a number of people to find some great prices on some really great homes in some outstanding neighborhoods. And of course, the really well priced homes have been selling quite well as expected in this market There have been 362 homes sold in our Green Valley MLS since the 1st of the year. In the previous calendar year to date we had 675 home sales. While, in the 2007 to 2008 calendar year to date, 842 homes had been sold.
Green Valley typically is not burdened with a high percentage of foreclosure properties. The reason is because our market caters to active adult living ( I heard other realtors commenting that we were in the Forbes best 10 places in America to retire). We have, as well, a nice mixture of single family, condo, and townhomes in our non age restricted areas. Fortunately, we are more of a destination spot and not as prone to the explosive or rapidly decreasing growth rates.
