The Take Aways

Mortgage Rates

Higher mortgage rates, along with elevated sales prices and a lack of housing inventory, continued to impact market activity during the summer home buying season.

The average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has remained above 6.5% since May. Rates hit a two-decade high in August, according to Freddie Mac.

In the Arizona market, on Thursday, September 14, 2023, the 30-year fixed mortgage APR is a smidge over 7.0%


No change here!

The Sale to List Price ratio for August was 99.0% for both Single Family Homes and Condos/Townhouses.

> Inventory Of Homes For Sale

New listings for Single Family Homes are DOWN 28.4% from August of 2022 and essentially unchanged from July 2023. Condos/Townhouses have similar results…..but worst. Down 38.9% from August 2022.

New Listings decreased 23.5 percent for Single Family and 30.1 percent for Townhouse/Condo. Pending Sales decreased 1.7 percent for Single Family and 17.2 percent for Townhouse/Condo.

> Prices

Median and Average prices were up for both Single Family Homes and Condo/Townhouses. Over the last 12 months, the Average Price of a Single Family Home is up 5.0% and Condo/Townhome is up 7.7%.

> The Bottom Line

Mortgage rates remain high, demand strong and resale inventory low. That suggests prices “could” continue to rise, but as an economist would say, on the other hand higher mortgage rates may dampen buyers interests.

New home builders are going strong and raising prices in response to demand.  Many new home builders have captive finance units and able to give rate incentives or closing cost offsets.
