Data Junkies Rejoice – Latest Greater Phoenix Real Estate Stats

More Cities Become Buyer's Markets

On August 10th, we posted a LUXE BLOG detailing the first three Greater Phoenix cities (out of its 17) that had recently entered "Buyer's Market" status'. Those 3 cities were: Maricopa, Queen Creek, and Buckeye. According to data from the Cromford Report, as of August 25th, 2022, four more cities have entered into Buyer's Market territory. These cities are: Chandler, Tempe, Surprise, and Gilbert.

How Are Market Status' Determined?

The Cromford Report uses what is called The Cromford Index. This index determines the status of a market. The "CMI" looks at many points of data including inventory levels and buyer demand.

  • 0-90 is considered a buyers' market
  • 90-110 is a balanced market
  • 110-500 is a sellers market

4 Cities Remain Seller's Markets

As expected, the four highest end cities in Greater Phoenix remained in Seller's Market status (some by far). These four were: Paradise Valley, Fountain Hills, Scottsdale, and Cave Creek.

6 Cities Are Balanced Markets

The six cities that fell into balanced market status (as of late August 2022) were: Phoenix, Goodyear, Mesa, Glendale, Avondale, and Peoria.
