I usually break down the Phoenix Foreclosure market on a micro level. But, and as Monty Python used to say, “and now for something entirely different,” here’s a look at the larger macro picture.
I was curious just how far prices dropped since the boom years. So I went to the multiple listing service, came up with some criteria, clicked a few buttons, and wallah: a 10-year look at the average price and price per square foot in the Phoenix real estate market. As you can guess, they have been impacted by metro Phoenix foreclosures. This is my disclaimer: this information came directly from the Arizona Regional MLS. Any realtor and can get the same information. I’m not responsible for any errors in the data. OK, now that that’s over with, let’s get back to this post.
Read that chart in this manner: in 2009 there were 92,146 residential sales in the Phoenix area. That total sales volume equaled $15,668,606,573, or an average price of $170,045. Since the average sold home was 1,930 square feet, the average price per square foot in the Phoenix housing market for 2009 was $88.00
