The inventory is shrinking! The good news is that we can still find great deals today and use the low interest rates to buy a property for an owner occupant or for an investment property.

Let me know if I can help!

The number of lender owned homes is quickly dwindling. Here is a link to view all the lender owned homes in Scottsdale that are currently listed as active on the MLS. There are currently 51 lender owned properties in Scottsdale. Quite a bit less than there was a year ago--or even two years ago! Are you considering purchasing a home in Scottsdale?

Reva -

At the end of March there were 330 active listings in Paradise Valley (zip 85253). Only 3 of those active listings or 1% were bank-owned homes. In addition only 13 of the active listings or 4% were short sales. The small supply of bank-owned homes and short sales have allowed prices to start rising in this market so the "discounted" deals are essentially gone. However the market is still soft in the higher prices ranges ($4+ million) in Paradise Valley.

There is a great information on the links below regarding the shadow inventory.

About a week ago I attended “Phoenix Housing Market Explained” event at ASU. The link below is from that event - contains a video, and the slides presentation of speakers Michael Orr and Mark Stapp.

You will find a lot of answers there.

While distressed properties are still with us (and will be for the foreseeable future), they represent a tiny fraction of the active market. During the month of March, for example, "traditional" properties (those where a lender or lender's decision is NOT part of the transaction) represent 98% of the active market. Bank-owned and short sales represent approx 1% each. The 12-month average for distressed sale in March of 2012 was 5 times greater.

Lender owned properties sell very quickly.
