How does the Phoenix Real Estate marketing compare to other major cities?

While we know that Scottsdale golf homes and the Phoenix real estate market are doing pretty well in the economic recovery, do you ever wonder where we place on a national scale? How does Phoenix stack up against higher cost of living cities like San Francisco and New York? Here’s a look at where Phoenix fits in with other major cities across the country.
S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indexes recently looked at home sales prices from December 2015 through February 2016. The national numbers are positive when compared to month over month, but even stronger when compared to the same time period in 2014 and 2015. The month over month change was a 0.20% increase, which has been right about the average for month over month and small time period comparisons for the last year or so; a slow but steady rise (with a few small falls in there, too).
When looking at year over year changes for December – February, the change was just over a five percent increase. Below are the top 20 cities that S&P/Case-Shiller use as a basis for their national indexing. You can see that Phoenix is toward the center of the pack, yet still ahead of the national average at 6%.

  1. Portland 11.9%
  2. Seattle 11.0%
  3. Denver 9.7%
  4. San Francisco 9.3%
  5. Dallas 9.0%
  6. Tampa 7.8%
  7. Los Angeles 6.8%
  8. Detroit 6.5%
  9. Las Vegas 6.4%
  10. San Diego 6.4%
  11. Miami 6.2%
  12. Atlanta 6.1%
  13. Phoenix 6.0%
  14. Charlotte 4.2%
  15. Minneapolis 4.0%
  16. Boston 3.7%
  17. Cleveland 3.6%
  18. New York 2.1%
  19. Chicago 1.8%
  20. Washington DC 1.4%

When comparing Phoenix real estate sales month over month, we’re actually dead center at the number 10 spot with 00.27% increase, also ahead of the 00.20% national average. So not only are AZ golf homes doing well, but we’re ahead of the curve and great market for property. If you’re interested in buying in an Arizona golf community – whether as a new home, vacation home or an investment opportunity – contact The Matheson Team for the full market scoop on Arizona golf homes and their surrounding communities.
