Arcadia Homes Monthly Real Estate Report-December 2011

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Summit Home Consultants

Arcadia is a very unique neighborhood, located in the 85018 Zip Code in Phoenix, AZ. Because much of Arcadia is located in what many consider to be the best school district in Arizona (Scottsdale Unified School District), and offers such amazing dining/shopping opportunities and lush green neighborhoods, this area has become extremely popular for people looking for their next home. Add to that its proximity to Old Town Scottsdale, and you get the perfect combination when looking for your next home. The 85018 Zip Code is commonly referred to as Arcadia, and for the purposes of this report, I have included all real estate activity that has occurred in the past month within 85018.

Arcadia Full Report Dec

Before I begin to explain the findings in the above chart, allow me to take a moment to define some of the terms.

Active: Listings that are currently listed as being "Active" in the MLS.

Pending: Listings that are currently under contract. This includes both Short Sales and Traditional (non- distressed) listings.

Closed: These are homes that closed escrow during the month of December/2011.

Traditional: These are listings that are "non-distressed" (i.e., not short sales or bank-owned).

Short Sales: These are listings that are marketed/sold for less than what is owed on their respective mortgages.

Bank-Owned: As the title implies, these are listings that are marketed/sold by the bank/lender that owns them.

Other/Misc.: These are listings that are classified as being owner agent, probate, court approval required, etc.

There are currently 193 Active Listings on the market:

143 Are Traditional Listings

  28 Are Short Sales

  14 Are Bank-Owned

    8 Is/Are Other/Misc.

There are currently 114 Pending Listings:

38 Are Traditional Listings

62 Are Short Sales

  8 Are Bank-Owned

  6 Is/Are Other/Misc.

During the month of December/2011, there were 55 Closed Listings:

24 Were Traditional Listings

19 Were Short Sales

10 Were Bank-Owned

  2 Is/Are Other/Misc.

Finally, in the Arcadia Homes Monthly Real Estate Report, we will compare month/month cost per square foot for those homes that closed escrow in December/2011.

The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in November/2011 in Arcadia was $129.06 per square foot.

The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in December/2011 in Arcadia was $125.56 per square foot.

This represents a 2.79% decrease in price/square foot within the community from November/2011 to December/2011.  The fact that 19 of the 55 homes that closed escrow were Short Sale home loans probably had a lot to do with this.
