Market Conditions

People often want to know "How's the Market?" Often, the answer depends if you're buying or selling, your price point, and what part of town you're in. As an overall view of the market we like the Cromford Report. The Cromford® Report provides detailed information to track the history and current status of the Greater Phoenix residential resale market and offers unique insight into its future direction. The data is available to all real estate agents in the valley and less that 2% actually subscribe? We find this information invaluable to help our clients make good decisions on their real estate investments.
