July 2022 Phoenix Market Update

Marketplace corrections impact certain sectors of Phoenix metropolitan area housing in different ways A picturesque view of the Scottsdale skyline — a coveted ZIP code for many who call the Valley of the Sun home. (File Photos/DigitalFreePress) Data points, insights & observations of Phoenix single-family home valuations By Terrance Thornton | Digital Free Press As the real estate cool down of summer 2022 defines a new marketplace normal, certain price points for single-family homes in the Phoenix metropolitan area are being impacted differently by recent changes at the Federal Reserve, experts say.On June 15, the Federal Reserve made the decision to raise interest rates by 0.75% — which experts say is an attempt to stave off more negative inflation rates lowering the value of the American dollar.For one Scottsdale real estate professional, Sandy Karpen, the change to interest rates is having its desired effect here in the Phoenix metropolitan area but also across the nation. Mr. Karpen is part-owner of RE/MAX Fine Properties and has been selling real estate since 1991.“The whole idea of the increase in interest rates was to slow down the rising prices and I don’t think Phoenix is unique,” he said in a July 7 phone interview. “I think what we are seeing is happening in every major metropolitan market in the country. The appreciation of 3% to 5% is a normal marketplace and is very typical but when you are getting 30% to 35% year-over-year that is not a natural occurrence of the market.”But Mr. Karpen is exact in his stance the Phoenix metropolitan housing market is not experiencing similar data points that ravaged the real estate business in 2008.
