Hello everyone. Welcome back to LUXE BLOG. Last week,'s January Housing Report came out. And it had SOLID NEWS regarding Arizona. The Greater Phoenix housing market started 2024 with a flurry of activity! All of which is good news. Most notably? Greater Phoenix homes for sale saw the SECOND LARGEST drop in 'time on market' in the nation (compared to 2023). Let's break down the key statistics to understand the evolving landscape:

Inventory & Market:

  • More Choices: Active listings rose 7.9% year-over-year, signaling a healthier market with ample options for buyers. This is good, because local inventory has been VERY LOW.
  • Stable Prices: Median listing prices rose modestly by 1.4%, indicating a balanced pricing environment despite rising inventory.
  • Faster Sales: Homes in 'The Valley' are selling quicker, spending 14 fewer days on the market compared to 2023, marking the second-fastest turnover across major U.S. cities. This reflects growing seller confidence and responsive buyers.

  • Quick Absorption: Greater Phoenix, Las Vegas, and San Francisco saw the fastest absorption of new listings, demonstrating strong demand.

Affordability & Financial Considerations:

  • The required household income for purchasing a median-priced home increased to $84,000.
  • While costs rose, the slower monthly growth (5.4% vs. 6.1% previously) suggests easing pressure on buyers due to falling interest rates and stable prices.
