Scottsdale AZ Luxury Home Market – March 2017

– Scottsdale AZ Luxury Home Market Performance for March 2017 –

This report takes a look at how the luxury market for homes in Scottsdale is performing. March was a very strong month for activity, which bodes well for April as well.

Below, you will find sales activity for the previous twelve months of homes listed for $1 million or more. Rather than lump all of the homes into a single report, I have broken the information into four price ranges.

Each price range includes the following information:

Active – How many homes were for sale at the end of the month.
UCB (Under Contract Accepting Backup Offers) – This is a newer metric that I am tracking. In this case, the homes are under contract, but the sellers want to continue to accept backup offers in case the deal falls through. In that case, the home is placed into UCB status. This number shows how many homes were in UCB status at the end of the month.
Pending  – How many sales were pending at the end of the month.
Sold – The number of homes that sold over the course of the month.
