Are home prices dropping?! - Real Estate Housing Market Update


Our Phoenix housing market has been slowly turning for the past few weeks now and we are seeing some changes. Just to let everyone know I am a Real Estate Broker here in Arizona, serving the valley for over a decade and a half helping investors, builders, traditional home sellers and buyers. I also do consulting services, if you're looking to learn how to actually invest in real estate and gain wealth through real estate, learn creative strategies like rent to owns/lease option contracts (even if you are not a Realtor which you don't have to be to know how to do this), notes, I can help. Make sure to like this video and Subscribe to learn more winning strategies and stay on top of the real estate housing market. Back to the stats/numbers: Supply is still insubstantial to meet the buyer demand. Fewer new home buyer contracts are getting signed. More home seller listings are getting cancelled. More purchase contracts are falling through. Fewer escrows are closing. There are more new listings that came on the market, especially below $400,000. Avg media price is $300,000 currently in Phoenix Arizona. Mortgage interest rates are currently in the low to mid 3's. Encouragement here is to buy and/or if you are a current homeowner, now may be the time to refinance. We will see home prices drop, not significantly at this time, but we are seeing 3-5% drop, particularly the luxury market (above 1M). Buyers will have some potential negotiation leeway over the next few months. However, sellers still have the clear advantage and there is no downward pressure on prices in the lower price points, as we are still at a 2 month’s supply, which has gone up over the last week. Remember 6 month’s supply is a balanced market, and when we start to hit 7+ months, we will be in a buyer’s market, and that's not happening anytime soon. We would have to see this current trend continue for several months if not longer, in order to even see a balanced market, never mind a buyer’s market. If you want to take advantage of this market, call me or send me a DM. Remember real estate is a long term Asset. Aside from flipping, real estate has always been Long term. People need a roof over their head, and you may as well capitalize on the equity position so you can secure your future with your real estate investments and gain some cash flow income.

Preventative measures can be taken to reduce infections of COVID19

COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus that has infected more than 191,000 individuals in 164 countries and territories, causing the World Health Organization (WHO) to classify this outbreak as a pandemic on March 11, 2020. Symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

Quick housing update!


Quick update: Inventory is extremely low right now. We are at 2 months supply of inventory; Under 6 months supply is not a balanced market. We are still in a seller's market.


The Average home price is $298,000 in the Metro Valley. Homebuyers under 300k price range can't even catch a break!


However, interest rates are at a Serious all time low (high 2's- mid 3's% currently). Currently a very challenging market for the average home buyer.....yet excellent for home sellers and luxury home buyers.


Our Latest update video regarding the real estate housing market, rate changes, the Economy and the Covid-19 coming can also catch it on our YouTube channel this week (link in our Bio), stay tuned

New Homes Coming to the Housing Market This Year

The number of building permits issued for single-family homes is the best indicator of how many newly built homes will begin to come to market over the next few months. According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development Residential Construction Report, the number of building permits issued in January was 1,551,000. This is a 9.2% increase from December.

Today, because of the tremendous lack of inventory, a seller can potentially anticipate:


1. A great sale price on their house as buyers engage in potential bidding wars.


2. A quick sale as buyers have little inventory to choose from.


3. Fewer hassles as buyers want to smoothly secure a contract.


If you’re considering selling your house, you’ll want to list sooner rather than later. This way, you’ll get ahead of this new competition coming to market and ensure the most attention toward your listing and the best price for your house.

Call or send us a DM if you are looking to buy real estate investment or even sell your investments.

How Your Tax Refund Can Move You Toward Homeownership This Year

If you’re looking to buy a home in 2020, have you thought about putting your tax refund toward a down payment? Homeownership may be one step closer than you think if you spend your dollars wisely this year. Based on data released by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Americans can expect an estimated average refund of $2,962 when filing their taxes this year. According to programs from the Federal Housing Authority, Freddie Mac, and Fannie Mae, many first-time buyers can purchase a home with as little as 3% down. Truth be told, a 20% down payment is not always required to buy a home, even though that’s a common misconception about homebuying. Veterans Affairs Loans allow many veterans to purchase a home with 0% down. How can my tax refund help??? If you’re a first-time buyer, your tax refund may cover more of a down payment than you ever thought possible. If you take into account the median home sale price by state, the percentage of a 3% down payment that’s covered by the average tax refund. hashtagtaxrefund hashtagtaxseason hashtagtaxes hashtagtaxrefunds hashtagtaxrefundseason hashtagtaxrefundtime hashtagtax hashtagtaxrefundsale hashtagtaxreturn hashtagtaxrefundcheck hashtagtaxrefundmoney hashtagtaxrefundballers hashtagmidtownphoenix hashtagrealestateinvestor hashtaghistorichomesinphoenix hashtagrealestatebroker hashtagrealestatewealth hashtagphoenix hashtagrealestateinvesting
