The number of homes for sale dropped under the 1,000 mark by the end of the month. While this is still 10% higher than where we were last year, we are still in need of inventory.


And if you compare the end of May to the end of April, the number of homes for sale was down by 13%.



Median List Price for Scottsdale Homes

The median listing price is a way to get an idea of home prices in a given market. It represents the price at which half of the homes for sale are priced higher and half of the homes for sale are priced lower.

Scottsdale's median listing price in May was $1.49 million. This comes in well above last May's $1.3 million and is up from April 2023's $1.4 million as well.  



Days on Market

Days on Market, frequently referred to as DOM, shows you how long is it taking homes to sell.


If you see a low DOM, homes are selling quickly. For instance, in May 2022, the DOM was 30, which is a very, very fast home sale pace. If the DOM is higher, it means homes are selling at a slower pace.


Days on Market for Scottsdale came in at 67 in May. This is down from April's 72, but 123% above May 2022's 30 days.
