PHOENIX MARKET REMAINS ROBUST

T

he Greater Phoenix housing market started 2017 in a healthy state and has only improved since then, with sellers in a strong negotiating position across most geographies and price ranges. For the overall market across the metro area, as of mid-year, the annual price changes were as follows, compared with the same time frame, 2016: • The annual average price per sq. ft. rose by 6% from $137.54 to $145.89 • The annual average sales price increased 6% from $269,475 to $286,877 • The annual median sales price gained 7% from $217,000 to $231,500 These are all annual averages, but the monthly median sales price had progressed to $245,000 as of June. This is consistent with a market that favors sellers over buyers, but can depend on price range, location, and age of the home. The price range below $200,000 remains extremely short of supply compared to the number of hopeful buyers. Appreciation is strongest for these entrylevel homes and condition is rarely a constraint. Location can be an issue, but the shortage in the central areas has encouraged more buyers to go looking in outer locations. This has led to much improved markets in areas such as Buckeye, Maricopa, San Tan Valley, Apache Junction and Surprise. Between $200,000 and $600,000, supply has improved over 2016 and is being replenished by new home builders. New single family home permits in Maricopa and Pinal Counties totaled 8,623 year to date by the end of May. This is an increase of 11% compared to 2016, however it’s still inadequate to meet demand. Mid-range demand is up strongly thanks to improved credit scores and significant easing of lender underwriting conditions. There are occasional problems for homes that have been neglected or in great need of modernization, but in general the market below $600,000 is buoyant. The lower end of the luxury market (below $1,500,000) has regained much of the momentum it lost during 2016. Over $1,500,000 the market remains relatively weak, however in recent months there have been signs of improvement compared with 2016, particularly for the segment over $3,000,000 Despite some softness in the luxury sector, the majority of the Greater Phoenix housing market is even healthier than it was 12 months ago and the prospect of steeply rising interest rates has faded. A large wave of baby boomers is reaching retirement age and downsizing their homes, so demand for smaller and more conveniently located homes has grown. The millennial generation is now a more significant pool of potential home buyers than the baby boomer generation and this dominance will increase over the coming decade.

eems everywhere you look these days, there’s a car with an Uber or Lyft symbol on the back. Even out in the burbs. Push a button on your phone and – presto – a driver is at your door in no time to take you to your destination. It’s no surprise that millennials don’t seem interested in getting their own wheels. Turns out, more and more young Americans are instead looking at a return to city life, without the constant need to hop in the car to go somewhere. With app-generated ride options, car sharing capabilities, light trains available in many cities across the country, and even self-driving cars from Google and Tesla on the horizon, could young – and possibly even older – Americans be ready to give up their cars? The numbers suggest yes. Hard to believe? Consider this: Car ownership has decreased since its height of 1.1 cars per licensed driver in 2001, according to the U.S. State Department. And, by 2008 the average number of miles driven in the United States fell for the first time ever, decreasing 3.6 percent. This trend away from car ownership seems likely to continue. Of course, Americans didn’t always

own their own wheels. Before World War II, only 40 percent of Americans were car owners, most living in towns and cities with public transportation modes available. But the creation of affordable housing out in the suburbs helped stir America’s love affair with automobiles. Soon, everyone had at least one car in the driveway. Until just recently, with the advent of the internet, it would have been unthinkable to consider giving up car ownership. But today’s younger millennials don’t seem to want a car of their own, preferring the flexibility of these new ride alternatives Not surprisingly, city centers are taking the lead when it comes to encouraging citizens to go “car free.” Europe is ahead of the U.S., welcoming this car-less trend in hopes of cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions and reducing traffic within urban areas. In 2016, the cities of Hamburg, Oslo, Helsinki, and Madrid announced plans to become in part, private-car-free cities. Paris, Milan, Chengdu, Masdar, Dublin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Bogota, and Hyderabad have similar plans to cut down on traffic by enacting car-free days, improving cycling roadways, and enhancing public transportation opportunities. Could the same hold true for the States? For those embracing this new car-free lifestyle, we can only hope so. Just think of what you could do with all the money that goes to car payments, insurance, gas and car washes!
