Here is a monthly real estate report for Scottsdale, Arizona home sales for August 2011. The report looks at single-family home sales on a monthly basis over the last twelve months.
This information is divided into three separate groupings - Scottsdale homes currently on the market, pending Scottsdale home sales and actual Scottsdale homes sold last month.
August 2011 Highlights for Scottsdale AZ Homes for Sale:
- Active Scottsdale Homes for Sale: The number of active homes on the market fell again in August to 1,597. The figure has been consistently decreasing since January. About this time last year, there were 2,725 homes on the market. The 12 month average for this statistic is 2,265, so we are well under that.
- Pending Homes Sales in Scottsdale: Pending sales were down a little bit over July to 504. This is below the 12 month average of 528 pending sales. Some of this can be attributed to seasonality.
- Scottsdale Homes Sold: Sales were up slightly (3.1%) in August to 427. This figure is slightly higher than the 12 month average of 403 sales.

August 2011 was a decent month for home sales in Scottsdale Arizona. We continue to see inventory drop, which is shrinking the supply-side of things. However, demand was off a little in August with smaller pending figures. Sales ticked up slightly, which is a positive. Looking forward to September, we may see sales numbers decline again as there is a smaller number of pending sales.
