Greater Phoenix Market Statistics Heading Into April 2023

Up-To-Date Statistics

Hello readers. Are you ready for good content? As your boutique real estate team in Scottsdale, Williams Luxury Homes is here to keep you informed on the latest trends and happenings in the Greater Phoenix market. Today, we'll discuss the most recent real estate data, mortgage rates, foreclosures, yada, yada, yada. For those wanting the Arizona real estate market to crash, the data simply doesn't support such event happening right now.

The Fed and Mortgage Rates

  • Last week, the Federal Reserve raised the federal funds rate by 25 basis points
  • Despite the rate hike, mortgage rates have actually been falling
  • Mortgage rates are influenced by the bond market, not directly tied to the federal funds rate
  • Lower mortgage rates mean more buyer activity and better conditions for sellers

Market Activity and Home Seller Concessions

  • Increased buyer activity has led to fewer concessions from sellers
  • With rates lower and competition higher, sellers have less incentive to offer concessions

Local Market Update: The Cromford Market Index (CMI)

  • The CMI helps gauge supply and demand in the Phoenix area
  • A number above 110 indicates a seller's market; below 90, a buyer's market
  • The current CMI is 82.7 for demand and 39% below normal for supply
  • Supply remains the main issue in the market

Foreclosures: Should You Be Worried?

  • Currently, there is not a significant risk of a foreclosure crisis
  • Notice of trustee sales (foreclosure notices) are at low levels (just above 1,000)
  • The market can absorb up to 10,000 pending foreclosures
  • If pending foreclosures exceeded 8,000, it would be a cause for concern (we are FAR off from that)
