Let’s start with this nugget since it seems to be what some people are waiting for: bank owned inventory in the Phoenix real estate market ticked up this week for the second consecutive week.
Three weeks ago there were 3,157 bank owned homes on the market, last week it was 3,188 and as of this morning there are 3,289.
Sales of bank owned homes in Phoenix, though, remain brisk. We have seen 3,993 closed sales the past 30 days for an absorption rate of .82 months.
Overall, we’re below three months of inventory in the Phoenix market – 6,945 closed sales over the past 30 days against 20,370 active listings for an absorption rate of 2.93 months. For non-bank owned, non-short sale homes the absorption rate fell to just 6.03 months.
