Areas that cater primarily to older buyers dominate the top of the chart for several reasons:

  • this is the time of year when listings are usually at their seasonal low point in these areas

  • population growth in Arizona is heavily skewed in favor of those over 50 and against those under 20

  • there is little to no new housing supply being built in these areas

Almost all areas are well below their long term average days of inventory. The West Side of Phoenix with the lowest inventory.  When breaking down some of these area further by zip code, locations with the highest inventory relative to demand are downtown, uptown, West Ahwatukee, Arcadia & the Biltmore District.

 

 

 

*Days Inventory indicates how many days it would take to sell all the Active Listings if they were to sell at the rate implied by Annual Sales and assuming no new listings became active. It equals Days in Last Year x Active Listings / Annual Sales.
