Here is the most recent Ahwatukee Real Estate Housing Market Report for April 2021:  The average sales price of homes in Ahwatukee dropped to $554,827 in April after reaching an all-time high of $561,707 in March. The price per square foot increased for the third straight month, from $229/sf to $240/sf. However, days on market increased in April from 26 to 29 DOM after decreasing the last two months. The DOM is still very, low, which means demand for homes in Ahwatukee is high, and homes are still selling fast.  Ahwatukee home sales for April increased to 149 homes sold, a 43.3% increase from April of 2020. I believe a lot of this increase has to due with the slowdown of homes sold early in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this is also the highest total homes sold in April o...

Here is the most recent Ahwatukee Real Estate Housing Market Report for December 2020:  The average sales price of homes in Ahwatukee decreased for the second straight month after approaching $500,000 in October, but the drop from November to December was just a few hundred dollars down to $481,095. The price per square foot jumped back up to $218/sf after dropping from $212 to $210 in November. Days on market decreased back down to 33 in December after increasing the previous two months. The DOM is still very, very low, which means homes in Ahwatukee are still selling fast.  Ahwatukee home sales are way higher than in December of last year, up 10.2%.

Here is the most recent Ahwatukee Real Estate Housing Market Report for November 2020:  The average sales price of homes in Ahwatukee dropped back down after approaching $500,000 in October, while the price per square foot lowered from $212 to $210. Days on market increased for the second straight month, from 31 in September to 39 by November. It's pretty typical for this time of year, and at 39, the DOM is still very low, which means homes in Ahwatukee are still selling fast. Ahwatukee home sales are way higher than in November of last year, up 24.0%. I believe this may have something to do with the COVID-19 pandemic extending the summer home sales season into the fall, and the continued high demand for homes in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.

Here is the most recent Ahwatukee Foothills Real Estate Housing Market Report for October 2020:  The average sales price of homes in Ahwatukee continues to increase, as the price per square foot jumps to $212. Days on market, however, has increased to 34, which is still very low. Ahwatukee home sales are way higher than in October of last year (27.2%), which I believe may have something to do with the COVID-19 pandemic extending the summer home sales season, and the continued high demand for homes in the Phoenix Metropolitan area. The number of new listings decreased from September, and is 11.7% lower than in October of last year. The number of active listings remains significantly lower than October of last year (-19.8%). The lack of listings continues to drive demand and home prices ...

Its the Lending Process Part 3 of 4 - Traditional FinancingI get the same question virtually every time I have an initial conversation with a first time home buyer, why do I need my financing in place before starting to view homes? Simple way to answer this, are you going to go to the grocery store, fill up your cart with food and supplies, only to get to the checkout line and not have the money to pay for it? The logical answer to that is "No". So why would you approach home buying the same way? With all the variable prices of homes, different locations and different ways to get financing, its always the best policy to get approved first. You'll know what type of loan your getting (FHA, VA, Conventional or Jumbo). You'll understand what you can expect payment wise (Most lenders, at lea...

Ahwatukee Arizona is really the southern most part of Phoenix proper.  It is made up of three zip codes, they are 85044,85045, and 85048,  If you are looking to buy............it really is a great place to consider. Ahwatukee extends from the I-10 interstate on the East, to the Indian Reservation on the West and South, while the North border is the South Mountain preserve.  Ahwatukee offers a lot of great outdoor activities ranging from mountain biking, all the way to outdoor sports.  Actually, with the south mountain preserve there are MILES of trails, mountain biking, hiking and more to enjoy.  There are also several area parks, such as PECOS which one can find team sports, swiming, basketball and more. I would highly recommend giving it some consideration.  It is quite a nice communi...

Distressed properties - those that are "under water" where more is owed on the property than will be available from the proceeds of a sale of the property - are thankfully far fewer than during the crash during the latter years of the previous decade. Still - some do exist - and Short Sales are still a viable option when faced with a "must sell" scenario of an "under water" property. Currently running at less than 3% of the closed transactions every month in our MLS, homeowners in that 3%, whether in Ahwatukee or another part of the valley, can still use our help. The first step is to contact us so we can schedule a complimentary confidential consultation to discuss how the short sale process works, and the considerations for your particular circumstances.   Careful up front planning is...

While there are far fewer people these days considering a Short Sale of their home in Ahwatukee, there are still some who may have purchased just before the "bust" last decade who may owe significantly more on the home than the proceeds of the sale will bring. What to do? A Short Sale is one such solution. A Short Sale is a "regular resale" with one distinct and significant difference. The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance(s) owed on the loan(s). Whether or not a homeowner meets the other "requirements" of their lender(s) such as a "valid" hardship can only be determined by consultation with a skilled and experienced professional with a solid Short Sale track record - we recommend a minimum of 100 closed Short Sales with a 90%+ Short Sale List to Close ratio. T...

While the numbers of Short Sales and REOs in Ahwatukee are way down from the staggering levels following the market crash about 10 years ago, there are still some properties "under water" and some that have received a Notice of Default, the first step in the process that will result in the Trustee's Sale on the courthouse steps. It's always sad to see people give up and walk away from a home, particularly when alternatives exist which may well be better for them and their lien holders. We've learned that often those who "opt" to let the home go to foreclosure "by default" often believe that their personal circumstances prevent them from doing a Short Sale.   Circumstances such as: Multiple Home Loans IRS Income Tax Liens Past Due Child Support Past Due HOA Fees ...and the list goes on. ...

Although we no longer see the levels of Short Sales that we did a few years ago in Ahwatukee, Notices of Default continue to be issued, meaning that yet another Ahwatukee property is on the path towards foreclosure at auction on the courthouse steps. Suzanne and I wonder why the owners would allow the property to go to foreclosure, rather than investigate alternatives that may be mutually beneficial to themselves and their lenders. Not all properties heading for foreclosure are necessarily "under water" - which theoretically means they could be sold via a "traditional" sale rather than a "short sale" - but circumstances may mean there are other liens attached or other factors that inhibit or prevent the owners from selling the property - whether or not it's a short sale. Short Sales are...
