Prices Up 4% So Far This Year

The median home price in metro Phoenix was up 4% from January through April, 2015. That’s a full year’s worth of “normal” appreciation in only 4 months.


I expect that metro Phoenix home prices will continue strongly up through June, possibly through July, and then prices will level off for the rest of 2015.

It’s a fascinating market right now. No one I know expected such strong price increases January-April. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the year plays out.

Like last month, I’m a little worried that the inflation-adjusted price is getting too high. That’s bad for homebuyers and long-term market stability. You can CLICK HERE and then scroll down to see the inflation-adjusted median price chart.
