Important News for our Arizona Home Sellers: Buyer Turnoffs

With that said, working in partnership with our sellers is critically … [Read more...]

Market Snapshot

MA

Dashboard statistics for the month of March show transition across the board in the Scottsdale, Phoenix, Paradise Valley and Fountain Hills markets.  We are seeing more home inventory on the market with a consistent rise in price per square foot over the past year, and sales have slowed in response.  Sellers feel it's still a seller's market, but buyers are still looking for those great opportunities.  We feel there is definitely a shift afoot in favor of buyers.
