PHOENIX, AZ  MARKET

December 2022

There are lots of small numbers in December's totals. We have very low volumes of closings because both buyers and sellers are discouraged. Monthly sales are down almost 45% from this time last year, and listings under contract are down nearly 42%. The numbers confirm that demand is very weak compared to normal for the time of year, and even weaker compared to the strong demand 12 months ago. However weak demand does not necessarily make a market crash. Excess supply is what really drives prices down hard. This is what we saw in 2006 through 2008. But in 2023, supply is low and getting lower. It is much higher than this time last year, when it was abnormally low, but it is still a long way below normal. Read the full article.
