Greater Phoenix Luxury Condo Market Performance - August 2009
August was a slow month for the Greater Phoenix luxury condo market. I define the luxury condo market as those condos with list prices in excess of $1 million in Scottsdale, Phoenix and Tempe.
At the end of August, there were 56 condos for sale with list prices of $1 million or above. Thirty-one were in Scottsdale, twenty-three were in Phoenix and the final two were in Tempe. Again, the number of luxury condos continues to decrease, but as I have said before, I would attribute this to units being taken off of the market or list prices are dropping below the $1 million threshold, versus sales activity fueling the drop.
There were no luxury condo sales in August of 2009 and no pending sales.
Here are August 2009's numbers:
