Scottsdale Active Listings

We saw another year-over-year jump (117%) in listings. However, to put this in perspective, Scottsdale had incredibly low inventory levels last December. Even now, we are still seeing moderately low inventory.

And the number of homes for sale fell 16% between the end of November and the end of December.

Median List Price for Scottsdale Homes

If you are not familiar with it, the median listing price tells you the price where 50% of the market is priced higher and 50% of the market is priced lower.

The median listing price in Scottsdale in December was $1.3 million. This is up slightly from the previous month's $1.25 million. But it did fall in comparison to December 2021 where the median listing price was $1.45 million.

Days on Market

The Days on Market came in at 77 in December, up 71% from December 2021.

Days on Market (DOM) shows you the speed at which homes are selling. If you see a high DOM, that indicates homes are taking longer to sell. Conversely, a low DOM means homes are selling at a faster pace.

Median Sales Price for Scottsdale Homes
