September 2-4, 2023
Welcome back Weekend Warriors and a very happy and safe Labor Day weekend to you and your family! We got a bit of a reprieve from the HOT Arizona sun yesterday and it looks like we might be lucky enough to stay under 100 degrees this weekend so while you'll still need to stay plenty hydrated, the calendar full of outdoor events is already looking a whole lot better! The Arizona Black Rodeo, catching a Diamondbacks Game, Flashlight Tours at the Desert Botanical Gardens, and endless pool parties at staycation hotspots - we hope you actually find some time to get some rest in there, too!
This is about the time of year that we also start to see that Summer lull in real estate start to wind down, which means if you've been on the fence about making a move - remember that as temperatures slowly start to come down, most people are picking back up their home search and making plans for getting in by the new year. It's wild to think that we're already talking about the New Year but Arizona's market is pretty predictable that way - the first 6 months of the year are typically the MOST popular time to move, followed by the third quarter which just started yesterday and last (because it's so dang hot) is the Summer time.
This week we've brought you our take on that real estate market, some really fun events we've got coming up including a BIG way to give back in October , and don't forget we're just two weeks away from the Back to School Back to You event this month with East Valley moms. f you missed our event last month at Spice Up Your Home in Chandler, reach out to us for a recap and your exclusive discount courtesy of our preferred staging partners - whether you are doing some spring cleaning or home staging, this is a great buy!
There’s a few new bits of information out this week about the local housing market and they all center around price, something most people really want to know about when they ask “is now a good time to buy”? The first is that price has been increasing - steadily over time of course, but did you know that some homes are literally selling for more than 90% higher than they were in 2015? Just imagine where we can expect to be in the next ten years. And what about that summer lull you heard about? Well, that’s pretty normal too. Every summer except when we rebounded from covid, we see a little weakness in our market. Have you gone to see a vacant home when it’s 115 degrees outside? Yuck. What we find in all of these data points, is that IN SPITE of interest rates that are topping 7% some weeks, and you can expect some more volatility in them over the next couple of days, weaker demand does not mean weaker prices. With half the amount of houses we would need for prices to stop rising, and no expectation of them coming from sellers who have a ton of equity in their homes, I’d say its a pretty darn good to time to start thinking about what might make sense for your family. In today's market, high interest rates don't stop opportunities: first-time buyers get perks like less competition and seller help; those tired of renting can save money and build wealth by owning. Listen in as we start there and work backwards and don't miss our Gilbert Sun News article for more on our take. Want more market news?
