- Phoenix Area Home Sales Drop By 24% in October | Legal News | News Ticker
When an economy tanks, it eventually leads to a massive reaction by consumers that will affect almost any statistics. Clearly, one of the largest investments someone can make is the purchase of a home. Based on a complete lack of consumer confidence, a flagging employment market and other negative factors, the statistics for Phoenix area home sales dropped precipitously in October, and experts expect this trend to continue until the general public begins to feel some form of reassurance that the economy is turning around.
According to available statistics, the number of homes sold in Maricopa County dropped by a factor of 24 percent in October when compared to October of 2009. Specifically, 4,695 Maricopa County homes changed hands during the last month, compared to a total of 6,140 in October of 2009. In addition, approximately 3,400 foreclosures were recorded in the county during October. All of this leads to the obvious conclusion that the real estate market is still suffering and that potential buyers are wary of getting involved with this type of obligation.
There could be other factors that are contributing to this trend, including the expiration of the federal tax benefit for buying a home for the first time as well as all of the news that’s swirling about the rapid rate of foreclosures and potential mistakes or corners that are being cut in regards to this process. In addition, the unemployment rate in Maricopa County remains high, lending remains extremely tight and home values are hovering among their lowest median rates in several years.

My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.

I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman.
