March 2020 - Video

March 2020 came with massive changes and unknowns, not only in Scottsdale, but globally. Buying activity started off strong and the month ended with good sales numbers. However, demand dropped off as the month progressed. Here is a one-minute video overview of the Scottsdale, Arizona real estate market that covers the month of March.  

Scottsdale Active Listings

Although the video says inventory was level, we actually saw a much-needed increase in inventory. There were 1,397 homes for sale at the end of the month, up 11.8% over February.

Median List Price for Scottsdale Homes

This next section is the median asking price of homes for sale in Scottsdale. The median list price is the midpoint of all home prices, so one-half of the homes are priced higher and one-half are priced lower.

The median list price in March was just over $1 million. This is up quite a bit from March 2019's $875,000, but down from the previous month's $1.2 million.

Days on Market

Now we will take a look at Days on Market (often abbreviated as DOM.) This is a measurement that tells you how quickly, or slowly, homes are selling. A high DOM means homes are taking longer to sell and a low DOM means the market is moving more quickly.

The DOM for March came in at 79 days, a 15% decrease from March 2019's 93 days.

Median Sales Price for Scottsdale Homes

We saw the median list price above and now we will take a look at the median sales price. The median sales price of homes in Scottsdale for June was $705,000.

February's median sales price was $685,000 and both of these came in higher than March 2019's $590,000.

Number of Homes Sold

This last section is home sales and this will be the one to watch in the coming months. Scottsdale homes sold March 2019 versus 2020

Sales were up 7% between March 2019 and March 2020. This is traditionally the high-season, so the increase in sales was good to see.
