August 2015 Lake Havasu Home Sales Report

Total Lake Havasu Single-Family Home Sales in August - 2011 to 2015

Total Sales - A total of 134 Lake Havasu single-family homes were sold in August 2015.  That was a 16.5% increase from the same time last year.  It was also a 9.5% decrease from July 2015.  However, our Lake Havasu community normally experiences a drop in sales between July and August every year.  Our total year-to-date sales of 1226 is 16.8% higher than last year's sales through August.

Average Sale Price of a Single-Family Lake Havasu Home Sold in August - 2011 to 2015

Prices - Here is what Buyers will want to know.  The average sale price of a Lake Havasu single-family home in August 2015 was $249,964.  This was down 2.7% from the previous month.  However, it was 12.3% higher than last year, putting it at the highest August average in the last five years.

Price Per Square Foot - The average sale price can be a little misleading.  It can be greatly affected by the mix of high and low sales figures.  A more accurate indication of property values can be found in the price per square foot.  According to the August 2015 Lake Havasu Home Sales Report, the average price per square foot was $142.  This was exactly the same as in July 2015 but 10.1% higher than August 2014.  The year-to-date average is $137 per square foot, 6.6% higher than the $128.50 YTD average from last year.

What Does This Mean for the Lake Havasu Buyer/Seller?

The August 2015 Lake Havasu Home Sales Report is great news for Sellers.  Prices and sales are both up.  Construction of new homes is on the rise.  The local economy appears to be growing stronger, with new businesses opening around the city.  Arizona State College has seen an increase in its student population as well.  These are all good indicators that Lake Havasu City will continue its positive motion through the end of the year.
