One area that I have often shown homes, especially to winter visitors or retirees are the Meritage homes for sale at Province in Maricopa, Arizona. These homes are beautifully crafted, but more importantly offer energy saving construction methods. With built in solar panels, a winter visitor can set their thermostats so that the energy saved and purchased back by the electric company during the summer months pays for their winter electicity use. These homes are priced from around $190,000. The Province master planned community offers walking and jogging trails throughout the neighborhood, heated pools and spa, workout center and club house. The Duke Golf Course is located just outside this beautifully landscaped gated communitiy. Housing prices are going up and it looks like that trend is not going to waiver especially during the winter months when their inventory goes down and demand goes up.
There was a surge on home sales in the the Phoenix Metro area making a speculation about a third dip in Phoenix home prices to be untrue! The medium home price went up and the rate of homes sales also rose. In the month of June, the market experienced the largest number of homes sold since 2006 NOT including foreclosure auction homes sold by lenders. For those sitting on the fence post waiting for prices to fall further, you might have missed your opportunity to buy at the bottom.... If only we had a crystal ball.... But, there no reason to not pay attention to the writing on the wall. Short sales are bringing in more than the asking price raising appraisal values. Lenders are having to adjust to this and are often lending money to meet the sales price rather than the buyer having to make up the difference between the sales price and the appraised value.
