Analysis

As we near the height of the holiday season, the Phoenix real estate market expectedly has the lowest inventory of homes for sale that it has had in more than two months and is experiencing a slight dip in houses under contract.  It’s not all bad news, though.  This is a common time of year for sellers to re-examine their strategies and/or take their homes off of the market.  Buyers should be taking advantage of this lull and take a look at all the great deals out there (and we’re talking about at the malls)!  And continuing its trend over the last two months, the Phoenix East Valley is still selling better than the valley average.  Way to go!
