Anthem AZ real estate - Market report April 2012

Real Estate Agent with Long Realty West Valley AZ RE Lic. #SA560004000

The Anthem real estate market, as well as the valley as a whole, has really heated up over the past six months.  The number of sold homes spiked up in April, although the average sale price dipped a little.  However, that statistic is volatile from month to month because it is subject to the size of the homes being sold and the price level of those home that do sell in any particular month.  The real tell tell sign of our market improvement is the sale price to list price ratio and the 12 month moving average.  Both have risen lately.  In fact, this is the third consecutive month we've seen an increase in the 12 month moving average, signaling a trend in our rising home prices here in Anthem.  Here are the numbers for April 2012:
