- Arizona Real Estate Statistics Indicate Market Has Not Yet Hit Bottom | Legal News | News Ticker
Most people understand that one of the most critical variables in regards to Arizona’s struggling economy involves the flagging real estate market. For more than two years now, Arizona homeowners have come under increasing stress as the value of their homes has dropped, foreclosures have skyrocketed and people find their mortgage payments adjusting to the point where they are no longer affordable for many reasons. As is the case with any market downturn, people have been waiting for the bottom to be reached so that the market can begin to rebound. Unfortunately, based on statistics published by the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service, or MLS, Arizona residents may have to wait a bit longer for the market to begin to come back.
The MLS publishes what’s known as a Pending Price Index, which basically forecasts the prices of homes as they will be sold over the next four months. The latest index indicates that more trouble is ahead. For example:
- The current median home price sits at approximately $120,000, but that number is expected to drop as low as $105,000 in February.
- Home sales in October of 2010 dropped at a level of 19 percent when compared to October of 2009.
- Almost two-thirds of all Arizona home sales concerned properties that were in distress in October.
- There were more than 41,000 pending foreclosures in Arizona in October.

Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
