Real Estate in the greater Green Valley, AZ has definitely gotten off to a slow start this "high" season with 69 sales in February 2014 as compared to 102 in February 2013, a 32.4% decrease. Year to date (YTD) there have been 148 sales as compared to 179 for the same time period last year. Active listings on the market were 1039 at the end of February 2014 as compared to 1035 in February 2013.
The slow sales are definitely having an impact on the "absorption rate" which has to do with demand. It is the rate at which the market absorbs the inventory of homes that are for sale--in other words how fast are homebuyers buying the homes that are available. In February the absorption rate was 11.74 and 11.52 for YTD. According to the National Association of Realtors, a Seller's market occurs when there are less than 6 months of inventory on the market and a Buyer's market when there are more than 6 months of inventory on on the market. In other words the greater Green Valley AZ real estate market is very much a Buyer's market.
