Welcome back, Weekend Warriors - You made it to another weekend full of great weather and local events happening all across town! Last week we got to celebrate with many of you at our SOLD OUT event at Schnepf Farms - check out a few of the pics below if you weren't able to make it and THANK YOU to everyone who was able to come out, it was an incredible evening with our clients and community!
Each week we pop into your inbox with an update on what's happening in the local real estate market, give you a heads up on some new listings we've got coming to the market and where you can visit our open houses, some of our top picks for family friendly events around town, awesome opportunities to volunteer at some of our favorite nonprofit organizations and so much more! This week, we're kicking things off with our Market Update!
Over the last couple of years an anemic amount of inventory did a number on our sales prices and for those wondering when the market correction will finally occur, it already has. The median monthly sales price is sitting right around $418,000 which is up from $410 at the start of the year and down from $457 near the peak last year. This trend tells us that without a flood of new inventory, we may very well see a decline in the available homes AND an incline in pricing through the Summer. For sellers who bought between 9-12 months ago, you are sitting just about 8-10% from your purchase price and for those of you who just finished unpacking your moving boxes, you have almost got your closing costs back in equity already. See how that works? The pending listing count is up, listings under contract are up, days on market is declining, and we’re back to having only 2 months of supply of available homes - but this time, our inventory wasn’t decimated by outrage demand fueled by cheap money or big investors gobbling up what little inventory we did have. In fact almost every metric we track indicates that prices will continue to rise and inventory will remain low and the PRIMARY drivers are low building permits and homeowners resistant to list their home in spite of their home no longer meeting their needs. Listen in as we explore how hanging on to that low interest rate could actually be costing you and be sure to check out our recent Gilbert Sun News article and our Chandler market update in Chandler City Lifestyle magazine for more on our take.

East Valley Moms Events
What to do with Kids this Spring in the East Valley
"In my humble opinion bucket lists are great way to make the most of a new season. And if you’ve been in the East Valley for any amount of time, you know that spring is our time to shine! Spring training, festivals every weekend and so many unique to Arizona seasonal activities shine this time of year.
So, what could be better than putting all our favorite spring activities onto one big list as a mom hack for everyone else to use!
We’ve rounded this into four sections, two of free activities around town, some spend-worthy options and a just for moms section, because if we don’t plan our own time, it’s not happening.

Community on Purpose 501c3
Serving Youth & Families
We founded Community on Purpose in 2022 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting women and families in our community through volunteerism, fundraising, and direct giving along with our podcast where we give space to women who are intentionally creating community through business, giving and living.
Since its inception, we’ve been honored to provide critical funds to those in our community who need it most, raise awareness for organizations doing incredible work in our own community, and provide a platform for others seeking community through educational and social events, a private facebook group, and professional networking opportunities and volunteer days.
In fact, if you are looking for opportunities to see Amy Jones Group owner and Community on Purpose founder Mindy Jones speaking at events on behalf of Community on Purpose, we've captured a few of those here for you:
