- December 2022 Scottsdale Housing Market Video - Here is a one-minute video overview of the Scottsdale, Arizona real estate market that covers the month of December. December 2022 - Video Scottsdale Active Listings We saw another year-over-year jump (117%) in listings. However, to put this in perspective, Scottsdale had incredibly low inventory levels last December. Even now, we are still seeing moderately low inventory.

Why You Shouldn’t Fear Today’s Foreclosure Headlines If you’ve seen recent headlines about foreclosures surging in the housing market, you’re certainly not alone. There’s no doubt, the stories in the media can be pretty confusing right now. They may even make you think twice about buying a home for fear that prices could crash.

But according to experts, the key factors determining housing affordability are projected to improve this year. Selma Hepp, Executive, Deputy Chief Economist at CoreLogic, shares: “. . . with slowly improving affordability and a more optimistic economic outlook than previously believed, the housing market could show resilience in 2023.” The three measures used to establish home affordability are home prices, mortgage rates, and wages. Here’s a closer look at each one. 1. Mortgage Rates Mortgage rates shot up to over 7% last year, causing many buyers to put their plans on hold. But things are looking different ...

A very recent issue of "The Residential Specialist" for us CRS folk was all about PPC advertising.Here's my questions for Active Rain people. Does it work for you, if you have used it? Is it economical or too expensive. Keep in mind I am a solo agent who ONLY deals with buyers, most of whom DON'T live here yet. I've been working with buyers exclusively since April of 1996. Never taken one listing. LOTS of experience to offer.So what's the best way for me to attract OUT OF STATE buyers to my web sites? He asked hopefully!Thanks so much.

A nearly 10% gain is still dramatic compared to the more normal level of appreciation, which is 3-4%. Let’s connect to find out how much equity you have in your current home and how you can use it to fuel your next purchase. This is a national perspective.
