Monsoon Season 2014 Marches Into Southern AZ

Monsoon Season 2014 Marches Into Southern Arizona

Finally the Monsoon season has made its yearly appearance.  It always feels like our reward for surviving the month of June, which can be brutal with high temps and increasing humidity as the build-up to the Monsoon Season draws closer.  I love the sight of clouds tinged heavy with rain filling the bright blue and endless skies above me.   Our signal that the always much anticipated Monsoon time of the year has arrived. 

Monsoon is an Arabic word that means "season".   Although it is believed that Monsoon is used to describe the arrival of precipitation, it is traditionallyDouble Rainbow During Southern AZ Monsoon defined as a seasonal reversing wind accompanied by corresponding changes in precipitation.  Today, the term is used to describe seasonal changes in atmospheric circulation and precipitation associated with the asymmetric heating of land and sea.

In a nutshell, when you see the term Monsoon used by the media at this time the year it refers to the rainy phase of a seasonally-changing pattern.  The key word being RAIN, and yes, with ever-increasing build-up of clouds above there will be moisture with cooler temperatures. 

During the summer months in Arizona, the winds shift from west or northwest to a south or southeast direction.  This shift is caused by the combination of the Bermuda high and the intense heat of the desert.  A strong southerly flow  brings in moisture from the Gulfs of California and Mexico.  When the moisture encounters the higher terrain, it is lifted and can form thunderstorms with heavy rainfall, hail and strong gusty winds. 

What it means to the less technical among us (myself included!) is that we will soon have relief from the triple digit heat as the rain cells tend to cool things off.  Unfortunately however, the increased humidity on clear, sunny days can be very hard to handle for those of us who are fans of the "dry heat"!

Keep an eye out for those incredible double rainbows, unique cloud formations, and astounding storm patterns with a downpour in one area while the suns shines just miles away.  If you have a camera close at hand, you are in for some once in a lifetime photos especially if you can capture the lightning that seems to come from every direction at the same time.  It is truly a sight to behold...the power of Mother Nature during an Arizona Monsoon.

Real Estate sales in June 2014 continue to trail behind 2013 with 78 sales as compared to 111 in June 2013, a 30% drop.  Year to date (YTD) there have been 536 sales as compared to 685 for the same time period last year, a 22% decrease.

The slow sales are definitely having an impact on the "absorption rate" which has to do with demand.  It is the rate at which the market absorbs the inventory of homes that are for sale--in other words how fast are homebuyers buying the homes that are available.  In June the absorption rate was 10.48 and 11.34 YTD. According to the National Association of Realtors, a Seller's market occurs when there are less than 6 months of inventory on the market and a Buyer's market when there are more than 6 months of inventory on on the market.  In other words the greater Green Valley AZ real estate market is still very much a Buyer's market. 

If you are thinking about selling your Green Valley AZ home give me a call, I'd love to hang an Another SOLD By Judi in front of YOUR house.  With more than forty-five of my listings selling in 2013--and 36 are already under contract or sold in 2014, including 2 that were on the market less than a week--I'd love to make yours the next one.  My extremely successful marketing plan WORKS...let me prove it to you.
