Scottsdale AZ Luxury Home Market – April 2017

– Scottsdale AZ Luxury Home Market Performance for April 2017 –

The following report is an in-depth look at the luxury home market in Scottsdale. I am defining the luxury market as those homes with asking prices in excess of $1 million.

The report covers the past twelve months of sales activity for this segment and is broken down into four price bands to show additional detail.

Within each price band, the following data points are included:

Active – The number of homes on the market at the end of the month.
UCB (Under Contract Accepting Backup Offers) – How many homes were under contract but accepting backup offers at the end of the month.
Pending  – The number of pending sales at the end of the month.
Sold -How many homes sold over the course of the month.
