Steady Price Growth in Tempe

The Median Price per Square Foot in Tempe was up 4% YoY last month ( $156.05/sqft compared with $150.90 in Aug ‘18), and up 29% over the last 3 years.

Generally speaking, the more modest the growth rate, the more sustainable it is over the long term. 4% in a year sounds like a good long-term rate. 29% in 3 years, however, sounds a little fast; it would have home prices doubling every 7 years or so, which doesn’t sound possible, does it?

Tempe prices showing strength

The Median Sales Price in Tempe has risen approximately 10% YoY in each of the last 2 July periods, from $280,600 in July 2017 to $313,000 in July 2018, and to $344,500 last month.

If the last couple years’ trend holds true again this year, we can expect prices to flatten out during the second half of the year, before bouncing upwards again next spring.

Tempe shows stability for time on market

The Median Number of Days on the Market was 35 days for homes sold in Tempe last month. This was up just a day YoY from 34 days last May. The seasonal pattern shows longer times to sell in the fall/winter and shorter times in the spring/summer, but otherwise the market has been mostly consistent over the last few years.

Prices Rise across the East Valley

The Median Sales Price rose across the East Valley in April, when compared YoY with April 2018. Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa rose modestly (3-5%), while Tempe’s median price rose sharply (8%) from $310,000 in Apr ‘18 to $335,885 in Apr ‘19.

It’s also interesting to see the median prices bunched together so closely, with Chandler, Gilbert, and Tempe all within a couple thousand dollars of each other. I’m not sure exactly what this means, if anything, but it’s unusual compared with other time periods and other parts of the Valley.
