Arizona is the 14th most populated state in the U.S. in part because our strong job market attracts plenty of new residents.

Employers are moving to Phoenix or expanding existing operations including: Apple, SAP, State Farm, USAA and Wells Fargo.

Arizona property taxes are low, cost of living is low and home prices remain affordable.

With home prices back to 2008 levels and very low interest rates, Phoenix Arizona housing remains a bargain. But prices continue to rise at a rate of 5-7% per year. Don't wait expecting prices will stay the same or go down from where they are now.

Phoenix continues to attract employers and new residents are moving here to enjoy our climate and desert lifestyle.

New home and Traditional home listings have far fewer short sale and bank owned properties to compete with and this has allowed sales prices to rise and put our real estate market correction behind us.

Phoenix New Home Subdivisions and Spec Homes

January 28, 2017 - NEW HOME SUBDIVISION UPDATE - There has been a strong increase in new home construction with 593 active Phoenix area New Home subdivisions, 2 more than six months ago, while there are 2243 SPEC new homes for sale, a net decrease of 65 Specs than six months ago!

The availability of SPEC homes gives sellers who have their home in escrow and need a home within 30 days or someone relocating into Phoenix an opportunity to purchase an available new home. Otherwise, expect a 7 - 9 month build cycle which is a long time to wait before you move in!!! Anxious to move? Let's start checking out new home developments with spec homes like your ideal home.

Contact Sam today to have him find your ideal home in one of 595 ACTIVE New Home Subdivisions.

Median Resale Home prices are lagging Median New Home prices by more than $90,000. This is to be expected with higher land costs and all the features buyers expect. Builders are cautiously optimistic about future sales and are building enough Spec Homes to keep up with demand.

Builder sales are up, but new home sales are 1/3 of what they were before the recession. Builders aggressively bid up the cost of buildable lots because large tracts of land to build in Maricopa county are shrinking and new homes prices will continue to go higher. Even though New and Resale home prices are rising quickly as costs rise, having interest rates at historically low levels is keeping the cost of the typical 1900 sq. ft. home the same as it was in 2005! Looking forward, interest rates are more likely to go up than stay the same or go down. If you are in the market for a new home, now is the time to buy!

There are few large tracts of land in Maricopa County available to build homes. Buyer interest for new homes in Phoenix remains strong and builders are buying land to build new homes. You can expect new home prices to steadily increase in Maricopa County, driving more growth in Pinal County.

New home Phoenix prices are higher than resale homes because: 1.) Land costs were higher, 2.) Building material costs are rising due to inflation, 3.) Labor costs due to a shortage of skilled workers are always increasing and 4.) Increased city impact fees charged developers to cover the cost of expanding infrastructure (sewer, water, schools, roads, parks, libraries, etc.) and services to meet the needs of all of residents in the new communities. You can still buy an energy efficient new home well below peak prices in 2006 - but don't wait too long. Your delay will cost you... and availability later when everyone wants to buy a new home will.

THIS IS AN IDEAL TIME TO BE A PHOENIX NEW HOME BUYER BECAUSE OF ALL THE NEW FLOOR PLANS AND SUBDIVISIONS! IT IS NO LONGER A BUYER'S MARKET. OUR MARKET HAS CORRECTED AND NEW HOME PRICES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN HIGHER THAN RESALES. CONTACT SAM FOR HELP IN FINDING YOUR NEW DREAM HOME!!!
