State of the Phoenix Real Estate Market

I dunno. And anyone who says they have any definitive sense of what 2014 will bring is more full of bluster than General Montgomery.

In the category of “it’s easier to predict the weather in Colorado Springs”, inventory here in the Phoenix real estate market has tailed off, and not just because of the inevitable expiration of listings on the final day of the month.
