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

Positive Market Indicators this month: Total Unit sales were up year over year and month over month. Average Sales Price was up year over year and month over month. Median sales price was up year over year. Total Sales Volume was up 9.55% over last month.

Negative Market Indicators this month: None, Market continues strong as wind down our Spring Season.

Market Outlook: We are finishing our Spring Selling Season on a high note with one of the strongest years in recent history. This bodes well for a stronger than usual Summer Season. Interest rates are beginning to creep up so that may create a little stimulus for those who have been waiting to buy. We expect buyers may get a little more motivated as they become more aware of the changing interest rate environment. We expect May to slow down slightly as we begin transitioning from Spring to Summer.

Interest rates remain very low (however there we are starting to see little upwards twitches in rates) and Lenders continue to slowly ease credit standards for home loans. The Fed is getting closer and closer to raising interest rates this year so the trend is up.

The National Economy continues to improve, particularly on the jobs front. Unemployment now stands at 5.4% which is an improvement over last month and continues the downward trend in unemployment that's been going on for the last several months. Wage growth is starting to pick up slowly as the jobs market tightens and nears full employment levels. Oil prices are starting to rebound upwards which will tend to increase inflation slightly putting more pressure on the FED to raise interest rates. All these positive economic signs continue to support improving real estate markets across the nation.
