The Desert Mountain real estate market is always hot. 

If you keep up with our regular market reports, covering all of the latest in DM housing market news, you know that our local market has not cooled down all year. Since 2020’s market reopening and the resurgence of buyers on the real estate scene, Desert Mountain homes have been in high demand. 

During times like these, homes are not staying on the market for too long. A combination of factors, including low inventory and Desert Mountain’s irresistible culture, are attracting buyers from all over the country to our wonderful Scottsdale community. 

If you’ve been debating whether or not to sell your home, it may be the right time to take action. It’s a strong time to sell in Desert Mountain right now — and it’s shown by the fact that homes are selling quickly. 

Here are three reasons why the market pace in DM is at full speed right now:

It’s a Seller’s Market!

Today’s Desert Mountain real estate market is favoring sellers — and it’s not hiding its preference. The data tells all. 

According to the Power of 4’s Q1 2020 Real Estate Report

  • Inventories of available homes are markedly low, especially compared to 2019 and 2020’s levels. In 2021, 61 homes were listed for sale. In 2020, 148 homes were listed. In 2019, 187 homes were listed. 

  • Despite the low inventory, more homes are selling in Q1 2020 than in the previous years. In 2021, 74 homes were sold. In 2020, 48 homes were sold. In 2019, 23 homes were sold. 

  • The demand is so high that property prices are rising. The average price of homes for sale has increased by 44.5% since this time last year. 

As a result of these conditions, buyers are purchasing Desert Mountain homes faster than new listings are being added to the market. This has shaped a seller’s market — meaning that sellers are reaping the benefits of listing an in-demand home for sale. 

Demand from Out of Town Buyers Shopping Second Homes 

Not everyone who is shopping Desert Mountain real estate is looking to live here full-time. In fact, many of our new buyers are from out of town and are shopping for second homes.
