Scottsdale AZ Luxury Home Market – September 2017

– Scottsdale AZ Luxury Home Market Performance for September 2017 –

This report covers the past twelve months of the luxury home market in Scottsdale. I am defining luxury homes as those with list prices above $1 million. To show more detail, I have separated the data into four price bands and within each price band, you will see the following information:

Active – How many homes were on the market at the end of the month.
UCB (Under Contract Accepting Backup Offers) – The number of homes that were under contract, but accepting backup offers at the end of the month.
Pending  – How many homes were in pending status at the end of the month.
Sold – How many homes sold during the month.

– Active Scottsdale Homes on the Market: Inventory was down 3.7% at the end of the month compared to August.
 UCB Scottsdale Home Sales: The number of UCB contracts rebounded nicely in September to 24.
 Pending Scottsdale Home Sales: Pending home sales fell to the lowest level we have seen in 2017, but this is in line with sales activity from the same time last year.
– Scottsdale Homes Sold: The number of home sales jumped by 18.8% to 38. This is ahead of the twelve month average of 34 sales.
