Scottsdale Active Listings

I have never seen the number of homes for sale in Scottsdale this low. And it seems this figure continues to fall even further every month.

Inventory was down 48% between December 2020 and December 2021. It is shocking to see there were only 393 listings at the end of the year.

If you compare inventory levels between the end of November and the end of December, the number of active listings was down 27%.

The median list price for December was $1.43 million. It comes in higher than November's $1.3 million and is slightly higher than December 2020's $1.39 million.

Days on Market

Days of Market (frequently referred to as DOM) is a measure of the "heat" of a market. When homes are selling quickly, you will see a lower DOM. If homes are staying on the market longer, you will see a higher DOM.

In November, the Days on Market was 44 days. In comparison, the Days on Market for December 2020 was 63 days.
