Here is the most recent Phoenix AZ Real Estate Housing Market Report for May 2021:
The average sales price of Phoenix homes increased over $9,000 in May, reaching a new all-time high of $503,819. At the same time, the average sold price per square foot increased from $245/sf to $250/sf in May.
Days on market for Phoenix homes went down for the third straight month to a new all-time low of 23 DOM.
Phoenix home sales barely increased in May from 1,589 to 1,595, but they are 28.5% higher than in May of 2020. This is mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down the economy last March and continuing throughout last year. Phoenix home sales are still lagging behind pre-pandemic numbers, but I think the lack of inventory is impacting sales more than anything else.
The number of new listings decreased from 1,880 to 1,696 in May, but they are still 13.8% higher than May of last year. The number of active Phoenix listings barely increased from 2,813 to 2,817, but they are down -26.2% from May of last year.
The lack of listings continues to drive demand and home prices higher, so if the number of Phoenix listings continues to be less than in previous years, expect home values in Phoenix to continue to increase.
With that said, median home values in Phoenix have increased an average of 31.0% since May of 2020. With interest rates remaining around 3.0%, there will still be more buyers looking to purchase Phoenix homes in 2021.
