The seniors are starting to arrive for the winter months. The 55+ communities in the Sun City, Sun City West, Sun City Grand & Corte Bella left the north country and coming here to enjoy the winter.
Our market has had good sales activity since Jan 1, 2009 as our inventory has dropped by 50% or more. S eniors will have fewer choices of homes this season. The Sun City communities have less than 2% of their homes for sale. However, prices are not moving up since August has been a typical slow month. Last weekend we had good activity at the open houses even with a holiday weekend.
Investors are buying lender owned homes madly outside of the 55+ communities. Prices have been increasing in the normal communities due to the high demand of homes by investors. What you hear about Phoenix is not true in the senior communities because fewer people played the crazy mortgage game in the senior areas.
