Tucson Housing Market July 2022 shows real estate reflects the effects of higher interest rates and increased inventory in July. However, it is still a sellers market at this time.

Both the Average and Median Sales Prices for single family homes had year over year double digit gains – 12.9% and 16.7% respectively.

Active Listings increased to 2,027 at the end of July. That is up 26.6% from June 2022and 52.6% from July 2021. At the current rate of sales that translates into a 1.7 months supply. Increasing, but still below historical levels and suggesting Sellers are still holding the cards.

Following single family homes, the Average and Median Sales price for Condos and Townhouses moved up as well. The year over year Condo/Townhouse Average sales price jumped up 18.0% and Median 20.0%. There are 222 units on the market and that is up 26.9% over July 2021.

As existing home sales continue to soften nationwide, housing supply is improving, with inventory up for the second straight month. One would expect price growth to moderate as supply grows. But mortgage interest rates have slipped back under 5.0% which may spur buyers to step back in.

SELLERS appear to remain in control of the market due to the low number of homes for sale. However, published mortgage interest rates eased into a range from 4.65% to 6.5%. Make sure to understand the terms, credit scores and points when getting a mortgage.

The big questions are – What will mortgage rates do?  Will inventory continue to increase? Is inflation getting under control?

The demand for retirement or seasonal homes in Tucson remains strong and more inventory is available.

The Drivers – Demand remains strong, mortgage rates easing, but inflation is up to the highest levels in 2+ decades.

Supply of homes for sale is growing and demand remains strong enough to move year over year prices up. How will those factors and lower mortgage interest rates effect buyers? Our August report should provide better insights.

Demand for new construction remains strong, but some builders are “managing” the number of homes they are committing to build due to raising material costs.

There are new homes are being built across Tucson, but in most cases a new construction home will cost more than a resale. Last but not least, new home buyers are waiting 8 to 12++ months to get in the their home.

Keep in mind when buying new construction, landscaping, decorating and window treatments are not included in the price. Want a pool, plan on $70,000++ for a standard no frills pool.

And while home prices continue to rise, Tucson is still a good value compared to many areas in the U.S

If a “fixer upper” has even a small appeal, check out a 203K FHA loan. Its a good option to have in your pocket when buying a home in Tucson, AZ.

July 2022 Mortgage Update

Mortgage rates have eased into a range from 4.675 % to 6.60% for a 30-year conventional loan depending on the lender. Inflation has increased the cost of home ownership, but Tucson remains one of the lower cost of living cities in Arizona and the U.S.

The greater Tucson area continues as a top pick for cities to live in across the United States.

When submitting an offer

Given current inventory levels, low ball offers aren’t getting traction. So, if you “really” want the home, make a “reasonable” offer. But with homes selling at 101.4% of list price you have to ask yourself, “Will I feel bad if I don’t get this house?”

If the answer is no, then put in an offer you feel is a steal and see what happens. But your chances of a “great deal” aren’t good.

If you think the home is right for you and your family, put in an offer you and your Realtor think is reasonable.That is likely to be at list or higher!

We will work with you to understand your objectives and analyze the market to determine – as best we can – a price range for the home you want to buy or sell.
