As of the moment there are 9,670 single-family detached homes for sale across Maricopa County; this figure has remained stable for the past handful of weeks.

Last month, there were 6,356 detached homes sold in Maricopa County, compared to 6,096 last year …

  • 521 were bank-owned homes, compared to 1,076 last year
  • 881 were short sales, compared to 1,573 last year
  • 162 were HUD homes, compared to 101 last year

Just for fun, I went back a few years to make sure my memory hasn’t slipped about when things turned. We’ve been over 6,000 sales every April since 2009. April 2008? There were only 3,524.

Until next time …
