The Market

The spectacular amount of market activity in Arizona over the past decade has been well documented. People of all walks of life have been moving to Arizona, and particularly Phoenix, in numbers unmatched in recent memory.

Figures from 2000-2005 show nothing but increased construction, development, unit sales and unit sales prices in virtually every category of structure offered on the market.

The greatest degree of growth occurred during fiscal 2005, where previous growth statistics, impressive in their own rights, spiked sharply to even higher levels.

Of particular note to the residential home seller/buyer was the record appreciation in new and resale home values. These rates were up for new homes and resales, rentals and condominium units, the only difference being one of degree.

While it is true that not all Phoenix area real estate markets showed the same amount of increase it is true that the degree of growth for each area was proportional.

Then along came 2006 and equally well documented has been the decline in the rate of growth of some key market indicators. The greater Phoenix resale home market is showing marked decreases in sales figures for comparable periods last year across the valley and across most unit categories.

One interesting exception is median price for resale units has risen slightly. This rising price accompanied by a decrease in sales seems to be more in keeping with normal market tendencies.

One would expect spectacular growth to lead eventually to a degree of scarcity that would be reflected in higher prices. Could this indicate that the market has reached its peak?

Let’s look at another indicator to see what it may tell us.
Since 1985, the Arizona Real Estate Center has computed what it calls “affordability indexes” for the Greater Phoenix area and several nearby cities.

The index was invented as a guide to predict market activity. When the index value is 100, the typical home buyer (based on the current median resale price and household income) would be able to afford a median-priced home at the stated effective interest rate. A lower index value indicates less availability of affordable single-family homes.

The affordability index for the areas selected for study shows a significant reduction in the availability of this type of housing within the means of the ordinary consumer.

Whether this data can be used as a reliable indicator for other groups and other types of housing is arguable, but it does beg the question “how much longer will the market be able to sustain a situation where both sellers and buyers can apparently benefit by getting involved in the market?

The short answer is that these conditions can remain so long as they are supported by the market.

So when we take a long look at the larger picture we must ask ourselves whether we can realistically expect to realize more potential gain or value now or at some time in the future and it is very reasonable to conclude that the best possible time to buy or sell Arizona really is now.

Buckeye New Home Developments

Buckeye new home developments are found in the booming growth area west of Phoenix. This city is the largest is land size than any other in the Valley of the Sun. Many new home builders have created communities in Buckeye.

Buckeye History
A group of settlers from Ohio settled in what is now Buckeye in 1880’s. They found out quickly that they needed water in order to farm in the desert so a canal was built to sustain agriculture. This Buckeye Canal provided the families with the food they needed to survive life in the harsh, barren desert.
Shortly after the canal was put into operation the settlers applied to United States Postal Service for a post office. The Postal Service granted the request and named the new post office Buckeye after the canal.
The developers tried to have the name established as Sidney. But folks kept calling the town Buckeye, after the Post Office- so that name is the one that stuck
Throughout the years, inhabitants of the land have endured much but they were always able to transform the land from a barren desert into a fertile farming valley. Cotton, feed grains, and vegetables flourish in the area’s warm climate. Today, Buckeye proudly retains vestiges of its fast-evaporating farming heritage.
Speaking of climate is typical southwestern. This means that you can expect a mild winter season and a long, torrid summer. Spring and autumn are mild transitions into the other seasons. The summer features seemingly endless days of clear skies and bright sunlight. This makes the natural beauty of the area so easy to appreciate. There is a monsoon season, but it is very brief.

The Market

The spectacular amount of market activity in Arizona over the past decade has been well documented. People of all walks of life have been moving to Arizona, and particularly Phoenix, in numbers unmatched in recent memory. Figures from 2000-2005 show nothing but increased construction, development, unit sales and unit sales prices in virtually every category of structure offered on the market.

The greatest degree of growth occurred during fiscal 2005, where previous growth statistics, impressive in their own rights, spiked sharply to even higher levels.

Of particular note to the residential home seller/buyer was the record appreciation in new and resale home values. These rates were up for new homes and resales, rentals and condominium units, the only difference being one of degree.

While it is true that not all Phoenix area real estate markets showed the same amount of increase it is true that the degree of growth for each area was proportional.

Then along came 2006 and equally well documented has been the decline in the rate of growth of some key market indicators. The greater Phoenix resale home market is showing marked decreases in sales figures for comparable periods last year across the valley and across most unit categories.

One interesting exception is the median price for resale units has risen slightly. This rising price accompanied by a decrease in sales seems to be more in keeping with normal market tendencies.

One would expect spectacular growth to lead eventually to a degree of scarcity that would be reflected in higher prices. Could this indicate that the market has reached its peak?

Let’s look at another indicator to see what it may tell us.
Since 1985, the Arizona Real Estate Center has computed what it calls “affordability indexes” for the Greater Phoenix area and several nearby cities.

The index was invented as a guide to predict market activity. When the index value is 100, the typical home buyer (based on the current median resale price and household income) would be able to afford a median-priced home at the stated effective interest rate. A lower index value indicates less availability of affordable single-family homes.

The affordability index for the areas selected for study shows a significant reduction in the availability of that this type of housing within the means of the ordinary consumer.

Whether this data can be used as a reliable indicator for other groups and other types of housing is arguable, but it does beg the question “how much longer will the market be able to sustain a situation where both sellers and buyers can apparently benefit by getting involved in the market?

The short answer is that these conditions can remain so long as they are supported by the market.

So when we take a long look at the larger picture we must ask ourselves whether we can realistically expect to realize more potential gain or value now or at some time in the future and it is very reasonable to conclude that the best possible time to buy or sell Arizona really is now.

Buckeye History

A group of settlers from Ohio settled in what is now Buckeye in 1880’s. They found out quickly that they needed water in order to farm in the desert so a canal was built to sustain agriculture. This Buckeye Canal provided the families with the food they needed to survive life in the harsh, barren desert.
Shortly after the canal was put into operation the settlers applied to United States Postal Service for a post office. The Postal Service granted the request and named the new post office Buckeye after the canal.

The developers tried to have the name established as Sidney. But folks kept calling the town Buckeye, after the Post Office- so that name is the one that stuck
Throughout the years, inhabitants of the land have endured much but they were always able to transform the land from a barren desert into a fertile farming valley. Cotton, feed grains, and vegetables flourish in the area’s warm climate. Today, Buckeye proudly retains vestiges of its fast evaporating farming heritage.
Speaking of climate is typical southwestern. This means that you can expect a mild winter season and a long, torrid summer. Spring and autumn are mild transitions into the other seasons. The summer features seemingly endless days of clear skies and bright sunlight. This makes the natural beauty of the area so easy to appreciate. There is a monsoon season, but it is very brief.
Suffice it to say that Buckeye is the hot spot in a very, very hot spot
