4 bedroom, 2.5 bath single-family home for sale in Lake Havasu City AZ.The Lake Havasu housing stats for July 2009 are in and they are looking good.  According to the Lake Havasu Association of REALTORS®, the sales of single-family homes, multi-family homes and vacant land in Lake Havasu City were up in July 2009 compared to the same time last year.  Sales of single-family homes were up 43% (140 units sold in July 2009 vs 98 sold in July 2008), sales of vacant parcels of land were up 33% (12 lots sold in July 2009 vs 9 sold in July 2008) and sales of multi-family homes were up 150% (5 sold in July 2009 vs 2 sold in July 2008).  Single-family and multi-family home sales are experiencing an upswing in year-to-date figures for 2009 compared to the same time period as last year as well, with single-family home sales up almost 25% and multi-family homes up almost 108%.  Vacant land sales have remained almost the same.  Even though the average sale price for a single-family home in Lake Havasu in July 2009 was much lower than the same time last year (currently at $187,627), it has actually increased from May and June.  Is this a leveling out of the market?  You would need a crystal ball to tell.  But, I can tell you this for sure: with these prices and the expiration date for the $8000 First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit quickly approaching, now is the time to buy your Lake Havasu home.  Contact me now so we can get you in that home as quickly as possible.
