Here are August 2010’s figures for luxury condo sales in Scottsdale and Phoenix. In this report, I am defining the luxury condo market as condominiums on the market with asking prices of $1 million or more.
The Scottsdale and Phoenix area luxury condo market had another lackluster month in August. There was only a single sale after we had been moving along at an average of just over 2 sales per month. There were also no pending sales at the end of the month which does not bode well for September 2010.
The single luxury condo sale in August was at the luxury condo development of Esplanade Place in Phoenix. It was for a ninth floor unit that had two bedrooms plus a den, two bathrooms and 2,417 square feet. It had originally been listed at $1,425,000. When it sold, the asking price was $1,095,000 and the final sales price was $850,000.
Overall, the month of August was a disappointing month for Phoenix and Scottsdale luxury condo sales. There was a single sale that sold for well below asking price (77.6% of list). And, since there were no pending sales in the pipeline, it looks like September will be another low activity month.
