Brenda's Tucson Housing Market Report
May 2010

Strong Market Activity again in April

Spring Has Sprung, Buyers are Buying! March was a Great Month, April was even better! Buyers are still out in force. Unit Sales were up almost 5% over an already very strong March. April unit sales were up 30.67% over April of 2009.

Buyer Profile Changing. The Spring Selling Season is all but over now as the snowbirds have almost all flown home. Our buyer profile is changing from retirement homes and second homes to more local buyers moving around, and new buyers relocating to town. This is a typical seasonal change and we always look forward to greeting these new arrivals to Tucson.

Sellers still must price their homes aggressively for them to sell, buyers are almost all bargain shopping and there's still lots out there for them to choose from.

Interest Rates will rise soon. Rates are currently hovering just over 5% but we expect them to be in the 5.5% to 6% range by the end of the year. Time will tell but that's our best guess at this point. Remember each quarter point in interest rate increase equates to $250 per year Per $100,000. So if you are purchasing a $400,000 home that's an extra $1000 per year in payments for each quarter point rates go up.

Feel free to contact us with your questions. We're easy to talk to and we can answer any questions you might have about current market conditions, interest rates or where home prices are headed.

Some quick conclusions we can draw from these Tucson home sales statistics are:

Positive Market Indicators this month: Lots of Buyers in the market now. Total Units Sold up 30% over last year. Average Sales Price up 4.41% over last year, Pending Sales up 16% over last year. Active listings down over last year by another 4%. Total Volume (total dollars sold) up 36% last year.

Negative Market Indicators this month: Median Sales Price still creeping lower down 2.15% over last year, this is almost flat now and should turn positive soon as this trend starts back up. The Tax Credit Programs have ended but we don't expect much impact from that.

Market Outlook: Short term we expect a slight dip in sales prior to activity picking up after school lets out and families start moving around and coming to town.
