Scottsdale Active Listings

Scottsdale homes for sale May 2021

As you can see, we had very few homes for sale in Scottsdale. Although new homes are coming onto the market frequently, they are getting purchased right away.

We closed out the month with only 549 homes on the market, which is 150% lower than where we were at the same time last year.

Median List Price for Scottsdale Homes

The median list price is the midpoint price of all of the homes for sale. Exactly one half of the homes are priced about the median and the other half are priced below.

The median list price in May was $1.5 million. This is slightly above last month's $1.43 million and quite a bit higher than May 2020's $1.05 million.

Days on Market

Days on Market (also seen as DOM) measures the pace of home sales in a given market or market segment. High DOMs mean things are taking longer to sell and low DOMs mean homes are selling quickly.

In May. Scottsdale's DOM for Scottsdale was 37 days, the same as it was in April. Last year, the DOM was 75 days - change of 51%.

Scottsdale Home Sales May 2020 versus 2021

An incredible 632 homes sold in May. This is the second highest this number has ever been and is almost double what it was in May 2020 when 319 homes sold.

If we look at sales month-over-month, we will see that they declined by 2%. I truly believe that if there were more homes available to purchase, this number would be higher.
