Looks like our upward trend in market time continues.  There was some relief in the North Phoenix & 1 Million+ Homes in Scottsdale, appears the higher end homes are seeing a little more activity than the general market.  Interestingly, the >200K market actually increased inventory by 8% from last week to this week, seeing an increase in more affordable homes.

I pulled the total actual sales for this month (August 2018), thus far for single family homes, which is 4,415 homes.  Of that, 3,005 homes make up >350K sales price.  So…68% of our single family homes for this month alone are under the 350K sales price.  Agents are still seeing a lot of multiple offers in this price range and it is a competitive market for the homes in this category!

“Pathway to Purchase” has made a comeback……Buyer incentive….
The Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH), in partnership with the Arizona Home Foreclosure Prevention Funding Corporation (AHFPFC), provides down payment assistance to qualified homebuyers purchasing a primary residence in 26 targeted zip codes in 12 Arizona Cities. The assistance is an incentive to purchase in targeted housing markets that have been hardest-hit by foreclosures.
The Pathway to Purchase (P2P) Down Payment Assistance Program provides an attractive 30-year fixed-rate mortgage with a Down Payment Assistance (DPA) second mortgage equal to * 10% of the purchase price. The DPA second mortgage is a five–year forgivable lien against the subject property at a 0% interest rate and no required monthly payments.  The down payment assistance (DPA) can be used toward the down payment and / or closing costs. DPA is only available in conjunction with a P2P first mortgage and is funded by the AHFPFC at the mortgage loan closing.
Program Highlights:
•    Mortgage for the purchase of an Owner occupied, Primary Residences in targeted areas.
