Stability In A Goldilocks Housing Market Is Just Right

As I study the market trends of the Queen Creek and Gilbert housing markets, I am reminded of this reminiscent tale of a fickle, hungry little girl wandering around. At first not satisfied with a "Too Hot" market, she passes on to the next phase, a "Too Cold" market, before finding the one that was "Just Right".  Welcome to our present day housing market everyone; JUST RIGHT!!!   As we know historically, the market stability is typically rated based on the number of available homes for sale vs. the number of closed homes in a market. If we have 7 or more months of inventory available, we are certainly looking at a Buyer's Market; flipping the pendulum, if we are sitting at less than 3 months of available inventory, the sellers' get market advantage. At this point in time, our market holds approximately five and a half months of current inventory listed for sale, making it Just Right.
   Either side of the market you're on, it's a great time to look at your options! If you would like to speak to a reputable lender, ready to help you know your buying power, or find out what your home is worth in the current market,  contact me today!

    I am looking for a home in Sunland Village that is two bedrooms and one bath, about 1000 sq. ft., garage, rock front and back (low maintenance), FHA approved. I live in the condo villas on the west side of Greenfield. These are perfect but the condo's are not FHA or VA approved. Sunland does not furnish the proper paper work required for this type of loan approvals. Next fall, hopefully, will find something that I like and will pursue.
