Maricopa County Sales Charts - April 2012

Wow – what a difference a year makes! I’ve been seeing people all over the web comment on inventory levels being down and prices being up, (and homes being hard to find if you’re a regular buyer) – but this is ridiculous!

The first chart below doesn’t do much for me, but look at charts 2 – 4..
  • Average Sales Price is up 17%, from $181,000 to $213,000
  • Average Price per Square Foot is up 18%, from $72 to $90
  • Average Days on Market is down 21%, from 106 to 84.
Wowza.

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.
