Market Update
March 2018

FROM MICHAEL ORR AT THE CROMFORD REPORT
THE PHOENIX AREA LEADING EXPERT ON REAL ESTATE ANALYSIS.


Median Sale Price up $20,000 over March 2017 | 17% of Sales are Closing Over Asking Price

For Buyers:

The percentage of seller concessions awarded to buyers has dropped down to 24% in the first quarter of 2018 after 2.5 years of consistently landing between 26%-28%, yet another indicator of dwindling buyer negotiating power in a prolonged supply shortage. The highest percentage of closings with seller concessions in the last 30 days were sale prices between $150K-$250K at 30-36%. Buyers were most likely to get closing costs in Youngtown at 54%, followed by Buckeye at 52%. Cities with the smallest percentage of closing costs were in affluent and retirement areas such as Paradise Valley, Sun City West and Sun Lakes at 2-3%.
