Yes, it’s true. December saw 7,670 residential sales in metro Phoenix. Foreclosures dominated those sales numbers, though the sales total wasn’tquite the all-time high. December 2004 was the only month in this last decade that had higher sales, and that was by less than 200 homes. Is that an amazing feat for Phoenix,foreclosures sales included? Definitely, considering that December is historically one of the lower sales months in the entire year as people turn towards holiday shopping and parties. It’s also an impressive feat considering all of that doom and gloom reporting on the national (and local) economy seen in the Az Republic newspaper, Phoenix. Foreclosure sales made up 65.6% of December 2009 sales.
