Greater Phoenix Real Estate Market Update For September 2023

Market Update - September 2023

Hey there, it's been a minute since our last market update back in July. Things have been busy here at Williams Luxury Homes. We are rebuilding our website with exciting new features. Why? Because we want to give you a top-notch experience here on the site. With that said, we are here today on LUXE BLOG to get you up to speed on the Greater Phoenix real estate market stats for September 2023.

What's Going On With The Market?

  • The Fed's economists now expect a "Goldilocks" scenario - no recession, low inflation, and positive growth. This soft landing wasn't expected by many due to aggressive rate hikes.
  • But JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon disagrees. He says with so many risks, it's a "huge mistake" to expect the economy to boom.
  • CPI numbers come out tomorrow. This could impact mortgage rates and indicate the Fed's next moves.

So there's still a lot of uncertainty out there. Will we avoid a recession or is one coming? We'll have to see how the data unfolds over the next months.
