Mesa Arizona Homes Sales Report August 2011



By looking deeper into the year to year stats of homes sales in Mesa AZ you will see big changes from August of 2010 to August of 2011.  The real estate market is alive and well in Mesa, Arizona.


  • Active Listings are Down by 34%

  • Pending Sales are down by 15%

  • Closed Sales are up by 34%


We all know the media likes to 'take a bite' on any negative piece of news to make it appear as if the real estate market is doom and gloom.  It is not!  We expect sales to continue on a upward trend  this next year due to low home prices and low interest rates.


Many Mesa, Arizona homes have had multiple bids if they're priced right, in good condition and in a good location. There are still bank owned and short sales and some traditional sales.


My advice to buyers is that if you find the home you like, and the comparables prove to be in line with the market, don't wait to make your offer - if this truly is your dream home or a hot investment property that fits into your portfolio.  It may take a  few bids to finally win a bid on a home but in the long run it's worth the effort. Patience will pay off.


And of course if you're looking for a hard working, dedicated real estate agent that knows the Mesa, AZ real estate market and knows how to navigate multiple bids - give me a call.


Let's meet for coffee and discuss your game plan.

Good for you Anna - bringing realty to life with your great market reports.  The real estate market is alive and well in many spots around the country - markets are as different as people and houses.

Hi Anna - I liked how you presented the data for your market area.  It is critical for buyers (and sellers) to understand that the only really relevant market to them is the one they are in - and if the price of a property is in line with the comps, then don't sit around and wait for it to become a bargain! It might be gone while you're out to lunch!
