The Tucson Housing Market May 222
Quick Update From Ben & Kim Boldt – Premier Tucson Homes
Tucson Housing Market May 2022 continues as a sellers market. Both the Average and Median Sales Prices for single family homes had double digit gains – 13.4% and 17.9 % respectively.
Active Listings increased to 1,176 at the end of May. That is up from 969 in April. At the current rate of sales that translates into a 1.0 month supply. Still well below historical levels and showing a Sellers market remains the norm.

Its a SELLERS market, but with interest rates going up that may be changing in the near future. The big question with year over year price gains remain the norm or start to soften? Tucson remains a top place for retirement or a seasonal home.
The Drivers – Demand remains strong, but mortgage rates are going up and inflation is the highest it has been in decades.
Supply and demand are driving 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 — REALLY LOW — inventory.
Demand for new construction remain high.
And the low number of “active listings” in the resale market is moving people to that choice. 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.
May 2022 Mortgage Update
Mortgage rates have increased into a range from 5.50% to 6.25% for a 30-year conventional loan. With year over year increases in Tucson home values more than double the rates, value remains attractive. But the Fed’s efforts to stem inflation are intended to slow that curve. Will IT?
And 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 102% 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!
