Maricopa County Sales Charts – August 2011

Here’s a look at the recent trends county-wide.  I’m pulling a rolling 13-month history so we can see the last year’s trends plus a comparison of this month to the same month last year.

Looking at the numbers, homes are still selling at a very brisk pace – near record levels.  And it’s a very good thing they are, because even with that heavy demand, prices are still trending downward.  It sort of defies the laws of economics right now.  We’ll have to see what happens to bank activity, and the market as a whole, in the coming months.  (especially if the economy slows down even further..)

Specific Zip Code reports are now available!  If you’d like to see how the sales activity in your zip code compares with the county as a whole, just click here to sign up, and you’ll receive your zip code report via email each month.

and now, on to the reports.  (click each chart to embiggen)
