Tucson Housing Market August 2017 – Behind The Numbers
The Tucson Housing Market August 2017 report shows the average sales price INCREASED 3.51% to $238,764. And UP 6.25% from August 2016.
August’s Average Sales Price is UP 3.6% from December 2016. And the August 2017 average sales price stands at 81.4% of the June 2007 peak average sales price.
The Median Sales Price for a Tucson home DECREASED 1.54% to $192,000. Since December 2016, the Tucson Home Median Sales Price has INCREASED 7.3%. Year over year, the August 2017 median sales price is UP 3.78%.
Tucson’s average list price of a home INCREASED 5.76% to $238,764.
August’s Active Listings INCREASED 4.85% to 3,500. Active Listings continue below 4,000 for yet another month. Active Listings under 5,000 means the Tucson Real Estate market continues to be very “tight”. Year over Year active listings were DOWN 8.49%.
Homes under contract at the end of August DECREASED 10.81% to 1,634. No smiles for the Realtors in Tucson.
Days On Market INCREASED to 45 days in August. Buyers continue to pounce on well-priced homes. Days on Market for August 2016 were at 48 days.
New jobs and the continued flow of baby boomers appear to be providing steady upward pressure on Tucson home prices until this month. Although the number of active listing is low, August prices tumbled. That is somewhat counter intuitive.
Tucson Housing Market August 2017 Mortgage Update
Mortgage rates continue to hover around 4.00% for a 30-year conventional loan. A 4.00% mortgage rate isn’t bad when the median price of a Tucson home is increasing 7% to 10% per year.
Tucson has been identified as one of the Top 10 housing markets for 2017 and 2018. We hope August’s data is an aberration and the trend of the first 6 months get a jump start in August.
And now the Tucson Housing Market August 2017 Report
