Phoenix Real Estate Stats Coming Tomorrow

avatarthumbnail.jpgOne problem with compiling the numbers on Tuesdays is long holiday weekends, where nothing will have shown as closed over the past three days. I still may run the numbers for the fun of it but most likely will wait until Wednesday.

I will leave you with an almost unanswerable question – how many short sales are there really in the Phoenix real estate market?

Yesterday I marked another dozen listings as in violation of Arizona Regional MLS rules regarding proper documentation of short sales. My conservative guess is there are at least another 1,000 (yes – 1,000) that are incorrect.

Bob Bemis and his compliance crew are short-staffed so I’m hesitant to go looking for the incorrectly entered listings and send them en masse but that day may come, if nothing else for the protection of my buyers who have asked not to see short sales on their automated listings searches.

    Good job Dalton, let’s ALL start using that violation box. Not just for fraudulently or ignorantly listed short sales, but also for things like required fields not correctly filled out.
    My favorite is bedroom sizes. I can’t count how many times I have shown homes that wouldn’t be considered because a room size was too small.
    Do these agents believe it will sell anyway?

  • You must be looking at my listings …

    I don’t list bedroom sizes because I don’t want to see one of my listings DQd because the bedroom was 17×15 and not 18×15.

    Sometimes it’s a furniture issue, but in most cases the extra couple of square feet aren’t really a sticking point.

  • Jim Little says:

    Square feet are less important than overall dimension. Trying to find a home when a bedroom set measures X, and no one tells you the size is a waste of everyone’s time. At the price of gas, who wants to run all over?
    No, they weren’t your listings. I respect your written words well enough to call you with questions if I needed the dimensions.
