Here is a snapshot of first half of 2013 sales in Desert Mountain.
Home sales picked up quite a bit in the second quarter of 2013, almost doubling the pace of Q1.
While average sales price and cost per square foot dipped in Q2, much of that can be attributed to the over $6.6 million sale in Q1, which inflated those figures. The average discount off of asking price stayed steady at 8% and days on market also stayed level.
The lowest priced sale of 2013 so far was a Sonoran Cottage that was a short sale. It had two bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms and 2,234 square feet. The sales price was $490,000.
The most expensive home sold in 2013 to-date was for $6,665,000. Located in the Saguaro Forest section of Desert Mountain, this home had five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and 11,589 square feet. The sale was a cash sale and the asking price had been $6,995,000.
Overall, Desert Mountain home sales have been strong during this first half of 2013. I anticipate some slowing down as we get into the seasonally quieter months, but things should pick up again toward the end of the year.
