June was the strongest month so far this year for single-family resale homes in Scottsdale, Arizona. Homes for sale inventory dropped again, this time to under 3,000, when we were at over 4,000 in February this year. Pending sales were very high again and actual sales were phenomenal. The bulk of the activity is occurring in the lower price points, but we are also seeing decent activity in the luxury home segment as well.
