Green Valley AZ Monsoons 2013

Don't Miss Out On Fairfield Homes Sizzlin Hot Deals--Click Here For Info

 With this month's stats you are going to see a major correction.  It was discovered this past month that the statistics generated by the FLEX MLS system were incorrect.  They have been corrected and the good news is that they show the market is AHEAD of last year, not behind as has been reported. 

While the monsoons have definitely put the green back in GREEN Valley, many sellers are also putting some green into their pockets with a market that is showing signs of improving.   Sales in the greater Green Valley, AZ market area are up YTD by 15% through July as compared to the same time period last year.  For the month of July sales were up by a healthy 28.4% with 86 solds as compared to 67 in July 2012.   Year to date (YTD) there have been a total of 770 sales as compared to 665 during the same time period in 2012. 

There are currently 714 active listings on the market as compared to 662 last year at this time. 

The YTD average sales price is showing an improvement over 2012 of 6.58%--$163,289 as compared to $153,210.   However, much of this can be attributed to the marked increase in sales in the higher priced homes: $300,000 to $500,000.  There have been 50 sales in this price range as compared to 34 in 2012.  

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.  More than thirty-four of my listings are currently under contract or have sold this year--I'd love to make yours the next one.

Green Valley Fine Art Network

The newly formed Green Valley Fine Arts Network has gone social with a Facebook page and its own website to showcase and sell its members' art rather than relying solely on the typical local art shows and social center venues. 

This network is a collective of artists who are masters in producing gallery quality creations in a wide spectrum of media. Their showcase includes unique works in clay, jewelry, sculpture, Raku, oil paint, watercolors, woodworking, furniture, textiles, photography, and organics.  Click through their gallery of inspired masterpieces and you'll discover a treasure trove of one of a kind art pieces.

As creative as their works of art is the network's company name, Third Act LLC.  It is a metaphor for life as a 3-act play.   In the first part of life we start to know/discover who we are. The second act is what we do with our lives, how we spend our time.   Finally in the third act we begin to make sense of the whole.  We understand the meaning and significance of the "play" we've been living...in short, we finally get it! 

Retirement allows us to journey from the necessity of making a living to pursuing personal passions and fulfilling creative yearnings.  In Green Valley, Arizona we have an unique environment that has led to many of our retirees wanting to leave a legacy to this world. 

The Third Act is our "ah ha" moment.    Come and experience the joy of the members of the Green Valley Fine Art Network "ah ha" moments that are so magnificently captured in their artistic pursuits.

For the very latest on all things Green Valley AZ Real Estate--follow Judi on

2012 may be the year we one day look back as the year the market began to make a turn for the positive.  It ended with many positive trends taking shape.  The two most notable are that sales were up by 17.3% as compared to 2011 and the months of inventory on hand dropped by almost 22% from 13.03 months at the end of 2011 to 10.27 at the end of 2012. 

While the average sales price in 2012 continued to lag behind 2011 for most of the year, that gap narrowed considerably by year end at $152,981 as compared to $156.246 for 2011.  With sales up and inventory down, 2013 will surely be the year that sales prices improve. 

If my personal experience is any indication, 2013 promises to be a banner year for Green Valley AZ Real Estate.  In the first 6 days of the year, 5 of my listings went Under Contract!

Green Valley AZ November 2012 Real Estate Statistics

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas even with the temperatures still in the 70's!  Be sure to check out Judi's Blog for the many holiday celebrations taking place in and around Green Valley Arizona.

In November, 167 new listings came on the market in the greater Green Valley AZ area which was an increase over November 2011 with 152 new listings.  On a YTD basis cautiously optimistic sellers seem more willing now than in 2011 to list their homes with the number of new listings to date totaling 1576 compared to 1486 in 2011 which equates to a 6.1% increase in new listings.

It appears those sellers may be on to something as sales on a YTD basis continue to outpace 2011 with 905 as compared to 757, for a YTD increase of 19.6% over 2011.  Although the average sales price is continuing to improve it is still lagging behind 2011 by about 2% at $153,274 as compared to $156,380.

Absorption rate, or the number of months of inventory on hand, has dropped 22.45%, with a YTD of 10.19 months of inventory on hand as compared to 13.14 months in 2011.
