The Anthem AZ real estate market saw some positive signs in the month of December. The number of homes actively on the market decreased slightly, and the number of homes that closed in December increased. The average sales price of homes sold in December increased, allowing the average sale price for 2010 to almost equal that of 2009. The number of days on market clicked back up. This could be due to the number of short sales that are still dominating the market. The burn rate remains at 2 months. Based on these statistics we are still in a full fledged seller's market in Anthem. Albeit most sales will be short sales for some time to come as most Anthem home owners have not recovered the lost equity caused by the steep market downturn.
If you or someone you know are considering purchasing a home in Anthem, now's the time.
