January 2015 Arizona Biltmore Housing Update

AZ Biltmore Market Update

Lets stand back and look at what has happened in the 85016 zip code where the Arizona Biltmore homes are. Lets see if prices are up, and lets see if homes are selling fast, or not. Sellers want all the information they can get up front. Sellers who wing it and put their home on the market before knowing market trends may be in for a bumpy and uncomfortable ride. Just like anything else, we want tp be prepared. And having the data, makes us educated and clear about where to aim. Buyers are buyine in the Biltmore now, so why not make your home the most attractive one on the market.

We know that every home is different, and eventually it makes sense for a home seller to get data even more specific than you will find here. Every street, every floor-plaan, every subdivision will have it’s own micro economy. What works in one community won’t work in another. When it’s time for you to sell your home we’ll be happy to provide you with all of this data. You can reach us anytime at (480) 442-3501.



New Listings in the 85016 Zip Code


Listings are pouring onto the market. That may be because sellers see a trend and want to get in on a good thing. It could also represent fear or impatience. In either case the stats are what they are, and it’s clear to see that the average number of listings over the last 5 years is around 105 listings compared to 121 in January 2015. The following charts and graphs will make this Arizona Biltmore Housing Update substantially more useful for you as a person interested in our local market.


 Closed Sales in the 85016 Zip Code

The green band represents the 5 year January Closed Sales average; this is the average number of homes sold in the month of January averaged out for 5 years. Anyhow, the average number of homes sold over the last 5 years in the month of January is 47 homes. Compare that to January 2015 where only 34 homes were sold and you can see that sales are down by 27% in January 2015. It will be interesting to see if homes are selling for more money now than they have in recent years. We will look at those charts next.


5 Year Median Sold Home Prices for 85016


As you can see there’s a nice upward trend taking place over the past 5 years. Sometimes it’s easy to get tunnel vision by being too focused on current trends and then forgetting to look back and see if those trends are coming from a previously stable or faltering market. That’s why I like 5 year snapshots. Obviously the overall market in the 85016 zip code is trending up. Obviously there’s good reason to be optimistic about values.

Phoenix RE Home Sales Stats Insider View


Number of Homes Sold in Phoenix in 2013

2013 Has been good to homeowners and buyers alike in the city of Phoenix.  Today we are here to study the Phoenix RE Home Sales Stats Insider View. We’ll explore what has happened so far in 2013, and look at the Currently Available Homes for Sale in the City of Phoenix. The number of homes sold so far this year is up over 35% since the beginning of the year. The number of homes sold in June was down slightly compared to the month of May.Phoenix RE Home Sales Stats

Median Home Prices across the city of Phoenix

As interest rates have been at extreme low numbers the buying has increased and so have the prices. Home prices are up nearly 30% from January 2013, and they don’t appear to be headed down any time soon. The median Sales price in January was $131,250 and in June 2013 the median price was $166,900. 


How long is it Taking to Sell a House in Phoenix?

This is one of the big questions that sellers have when considering to sell their home. In an ideal sellers market homes would fetch more money than any previous sale in the neighborhood and would sell instantly to the ideal all cash buyer. Back to reality. Markets go up and down, and they speed up or slow down. Right now the market is zooming at record pace compared to the rest of the year. The June numbers prove that homes have never sold faster in 2013. At the height of 2013 homes took as many as 66 days to sell on average. In August 2011 homes were taking 93 days on average, so you can see that 66 days is still quite swift when we look back over our shoulders at previous history. The Days On Market (DOM) for this year’s month of June is 55 days! So when we price a home to market and properly advertise a well prepared home we need to have that seller ready to move into their new place fast.

85016 Number of Active Listings – First Quarter

Number of Active Listings – April 2011 to Present

Many buyers who enter the market to buy a home in Phoenix rely on the tales told by their friends who may have purchased a couple of years ago when there was a glut of inventory when the Phoenix real estate market was bank owned and short sale saturated. Today is a much different story.

When a buyer wants to buy today in Phoenix they need to be ready to compete for the house they want. Prices are still good and interest rates have never been better, so when a good home hits the market it is not uncommon to have multiple offers within one day.That’s just the landscape of the marketplace today, and it can be a shock to anyone who enters into the marketplace.

I hope that these snippets of data give you a good picture of the 85016 Homes Sold – first quarter 2013. If you happen to live in the 85016 zipcode this will be relative, and if you are having thoughts of buying or selling you will need data that reflects the sale of homes that are most similar to the one you are thinking of buying or selling. Research is critical to making a wise decision, and being off just a few percentage points can mean leaving tens of thousands of dollars on the table.

Biltmore Mountain Estates market update 


Biltmore Mountain Estates Homes Sold

Biltmore Mountain Estates Market Activity

Here is the Biltmore Mountain Estates market update presented by agent John Cunningham. The last 2 years of Phoenix Real estate sales have been wild to say the least. 2 years ago people didn’t know if the market was headed north or south, and it took everything anyone had to step out in faith. Those who did were well rewarded as many of the houses in the valley were grossly undervalued, and there was plenty to pick from wether it be traditional sales, short sales, or bank owned properties.


Lets look at the Biltmore Mountain Estates Market

Today the Mountain Estates owners in the Biltmore are seeing that this is a great time to market their homes as even the luxury sales have recovered from the turmoil as the more expensive properties in these exclusive gated areas are attracting affluent buyers who want the finest homes available on the market today.


AZ Biltmore Absorbtion Rate

This chart does a great job of creating a visual of just how extreme the change in housing inventory is in the Biltmore area over the last year. We went from a bloated absorption rate of 8.5 months all the way down to a 3.5 months supply of available residences. And isn’t it interesting to see that this giant shift in the marketplace happened so quickly. Anyone who wanted to sell 10 months ago that held off may want to get off the fence asap as this is a great opportunity for sellers to get all they can out of the marketplace.

AZ Biltmore Days On Market

The days on the market in the Biltmore area have shrank by nearly 20% from 84 days on market down to 70 days on market.  These strong indicators all point to a recovered Biltmore Mountain Estates Market. How long will the stability hold? I don’t have a crystal ball, and we all know that values can rise and fall. We also know that we are no where near the real estate prices of 2004-2006, and we probably will not gety back to those numbers for a good while as the market was seriously obese and out of balance. Today is much different as the home prices have increased incrementally rather than astronomically.

Take a look at the current available homes in the Biltmore Mountain Estates Market. Call John at 602-558-3843 if you have any further questions about this Biltmore Mountain Estates Market. Here is the WIKI page for the Arizona Biltmore if you are interested in the history of this storied place.
