AZ Housing Market is HOT...Top 5 AZ Cities Selling Over Asking Price

For Buyers: Greater Phoenix has a population of approximately 4.8 million people and 1.4 million single family homes, condos and townhomes in total inventory.

If we compare the number of active listings for single-family homes without a contract with this time last year, the following are the ZIP codes with the largest percentage decline in homes for sale: Chandler 85224 - down 91% Glendale 85306 - down 88% El Mirage
