Where Have All The Listings Gone?

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart SA541769000

I don’t typically do Market Reports, there are dozens of sources that specialize in reporting on both the broader market and the nuances of each region of the country. But of course, I like to keep my finger on the pulse of the market. Anyone in this business needs to stay tuned in to the ever-changing face of real estate.

Today I received a market report from one of my partners and I could not help but share this remarkable data. The report was quite lengthy with several interesting facts and figures on the state of the real estate market in the Phoenix Metro.

A couple of things stood out to me that explained in essence the current market and what buyers, sellers, and renters are facing today. I clipped out two sections to emphasize the data.

The first graphic shows six bullet points five of which are predictions that may or may not be accurate. But it was number five that held the most ammunition for why real estate has seen strong appreciation in 2020 and should continue in 2021. The number of listing in the Phoenix metro is 71% below normal!

Phoenix Predictions 1

The second graphic shows the state of the rental market across the country and once again explains why the demand for buying is so high in the Phoenix metro. With today’s low-interest rates buying can truly be more affordable than renting if you are lucky enough to find a home to purchase.

I will continue to keep my eye on the Phoenix market and do my best to stay in tune with current events. I just wish I had more listings.

Hi Joseph yes we have inventory similiar to the 2005 numbers but for different reasons.  When I checked earlier there are only 5200+ homes that are Active.  Act fast buyers!

Hi Joseph Domino 480-390-6011 

Great post

Are off market sales common in your area?

As the years go by more and more sellers ask to sell 'off market'

Happy Selling!

Off market sales are becoming popular. Much to the dismay of buyers. "I know a guy..."

Joseph, I do market reports every month, and our new listings are down 50% from last year, and sure hope this changes here in the next few weeks.
