Phoenix real estate market closes 7,586 sales in November 2009
The 7,586 residential sales recorded in November 2009 are 559 sales less than those recorded in October 2009. This reduction in sales is considered both normal and cyclical in the Phoenix real estate market. Sales peaked in June 2009 when 9,358 home sales were recorded.
The chart indicates a steady increase in home sales beginning in February and lasting until the peak in June. The steady decrease began in July and continues to date. Although not indicated on the chart, the year over year (YOY) sales in the Phoenix real estate market have now increased for two consecutive years. Sales in October 2007 were 3, 421 and sales in October 2008 were 5,267.
The Town of Maricopa was the only municipality in the Phoenix real estate market that was contrary to the decline in home sales. The Town of Maricopa experienced a slight increase in sales from 224 home sales in October to 235 homes sales and November 2009, a 5% increase.
Around the Phoenix real estate market, Scottsdale was the only other city with home sales consistent with October 2009. Scottsdale experienced a decrease of just under 2%.
I've been on other projects and slow to update these reports. Merry Christmas to all!
