Increases in home prices have slowed slightly due to summer temperatures. This is seasonal. We expect prices to continue to climb in September and again through January and February.

Inventory is low and expected to remain low for the foreseeable future. New home sales are at low dating back to WWII (according to Micheal Orr of the Cromford Report). We are still getting 60K+ new people coming to the valley each year.

Once temperatures fall below 100 degrees expect activity to pick up and therefore prices.

I live in 85255 and can give you a full history if you like. We can give you information right down to neighborhood performance and even most popular home models.

Home prices have been going up due to low inventory. Buy now and be glad you did in a few years because home values will continue to appreciate.

85259 is experiencing some slight appreciation, though 85255 is a little behind. The lenders are not foreclosing as quickly which is bringing supply down. Although it could be debated I believe that if you find a property that you LOVE in this zipcode jump on it. There are a lot of people out there looking for the right home and with inventory so low it is typically the less desirable homes that are sitting and bringing down the numbers when they do close. With prices this low and interest rates at all time lows, I believe its time to buy the RIGHT home when you see it.

Both of these area's are in great parts of Scottsdale and will be some of the best overall sub-markets.

With Inventory below a balanced market at under 17000 units where 33,000 represents a balanced market we have more buyers bidding on fewer homes which have increased prices in lower price points and remained competitive mid price points and room still in luxury to bid competitively. With interest rates still very low it is a good time to take advantage and buy. Know what you want so you can move when it's found and have a professional consultant on your side.

Market conditions has been improving and inventory is down below what we would have in a good market. We will continue to have foreclosures and short sales for a while, but most outlooks are positive. There is an increase of buyers which adds to the multiple offers that we have experienced for the past couple years. We have had a flood of investors buying and now the number of owner occupant buyers has increased sharply. Many anticipate 2012 to be the turning point in the market and a very good time to buy.

The prices have started edging up in Scottsdale and the Phoenix metro area in general. Now is a great time to purchase a home with prices still low and interest rates low as well.

In my opinion, home prices bottomed out a while ago - maybe a year or so and are working their way up slowly. Of course this could change and reverse at any time as market conditions change continually. I see this evidenced by the following: The number of properties available in Scottsdale today as compared to a year ago is severely down, low priced properties are rapidly going away. I also see bidding wars on any property that is in good condition and priced well. Finally, I see so many buyers entering the market as first-time home buyers, vacation home buyers and investors. With interest rates at all time lows, it is truly a great time to buy. If you are thinking about getting into a property, get yourself pre-approved and start looking soon. If you need help, I or anyone else here on Trulia can give you great guidance and professional help with your purchase. Wishing you only the best in your home search!
