It is true that residential real estate in Arizona is down. The number of sales and the total volume of dollars spent are both down. Nationally, we are doing much better than most. Homes that are priced right and in pristine condition are selling. They are taking a bit longer but they are selling.Pricing, condition of the home and location are the key ingredients. You can't do anything about location so the emphasis should be on the two other components. I will be writing more about the Arizona real estate market in the near future. Your feedback is welcome.
