The Tucson Housing Market June 2022
Quick Update From Ben & Kim Boldt – Premier Tucson Homes
Tucson Housing Market June 2022 shows real estate is beginning to feel the effects of higher interest rates and increased inventory. However, in Tucson, 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 – 11.0% and 13.2% respectively.
Active Listings increased to 1,601 at the end of June. That is up 36.1% from May and 41.1% from June 2021. At the current rate of sales that translates into a 1.3 months supply. Increasing, but still below historical levels and suggesting a Sellers market remains the norm.

Its is still a SELLERS market do to the low number of homes for sale, but with mortgage interest rates going up that is likely to shift. But when?
Stock market performance also influences many cash buyers. How soon and by how much remains to be seen.
The big question is how high will mortgage rates go and will inventory continue to increase? The demand for retirement or seasonal homes in Tucson remains strong. But will that continue as we move into late summer and mid term elections?
The Drivers – Demand remains strong, but mortgage rates are going up following inflation across the U.S.
Supply and demand continue to move prices up, but the effects of mortgage interest rates and inflation may be flattening the curve. At least the Fed thinks so.
Sellers remain in command as buyers look for their “perfect” home in a market with LOW inventory.
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.
June 2022 Mortgage Update
Mortgage rates have increased into a range from 5.675 % to 6.125% for a 30-year conventional loan. But the Fed may be increasing their rates before the end of July. Some suggest 75 to 100 basis point increase.
Cost of ownership has increased, 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.

Tucson Housing Market June 2022 continues to show strong year over year price increases. But higher prices and mortgage rates approaching 6% have cooled demand. Both home sales and mortgage applications have fallen from last years levels.
