Scottsdale home sales December 2022

  • Scottsdale Homes for Sale: We saw a significant drop in the number of homes for sale in December, putting us at levels we have not seen since June. A factor in this is people taking their homes off the market during the holidays. We see a lot of these homes return to the market in January.
  • UCB (Under contract, accepting backup offers): UCBs barely made it past 100 in December. This is the lowest it has been in the past year. Again, the holidays play a part in this number every year.
  • Pending Homes Sales in Scottsdale: Pendings also fell to their lowest level in the past year.
  • Scottsdale Home Sales: The number of homes that sold came in at 237. As with UCBs and spending, this is the lowest we saw this figure in 2022, but the holidays definitely play a factor.
