Cathy Carter, your Remax Chandler realtor, talks housing trends and what to expect in the coming busy season.
Spring and summer are known as the busiest seasons for real estate sales, and this year trends seem to indicate that the Remax Chandler real estate market will see excellent sales and traffic. As a Remax Chandler realtor, I am preparing for a busy spring and summer. If you are planning to enter the market, either as a buyer or seller, knowing these current trends will help you make better decisions.
Remax Chandler Homes for Sale Seeing Steady Price Increase
In January of 2015, home prices were at a relatively low point. The holiday season and winter months tend to cause prices to drop a bit, as only the most serious sellers are hitting the market. Since February, however, prices have been steadily gaining. At the end of April 2015, prices were slightly higher than they were at the same time in 2014, with an average sales price of $288,545, compared to $270,829 the year prior for homes selling under $1 million and containing over 1,000 square feet. This is also an increase over the February value, which was $272,628.
Houses Selling Quickly As Market Heats Up
The average days on market can be a strong indicator of the health of the market. Over the past several months, Remax Chandler homes for sale have continued to sell at a quick pace. The average days on market in April 2015 was just 43 days. This is significantly lower than many parts of the country and indicates that the market is strong and healthy. Buyers want to purchase in Chandler, and homes do not sit for sale long. If you are a buyer, you will want to move quickly when you find a home you love. If you are a seller, rest assured that homes that are properly priced and properly staged should sell in a reasonable amount of time.
Hot Communities Where Remax Chandler Real Estate Is Moving Quickly
As buyers and sellers watch the market, it can be beneficial to note which neighborhoods are drawing the most interest. One of the most popular communities in Chandler this spring has been the Provinces Master Community. Fox crossing and Cooper Commons are also popular. These areas have beautiful homes, exceptional amenities and strong real estate trends, making them well worth watching for those monitoring Remanx Chandler homes for sale.
