Home price trends in Phoenix

City-by-city price comps
Phoenix
Prices -- and sales activity -- have plummeted as if someone dropped them from the top of the Grand Canyon. John Burns Real Estate Consulting reports that the 2009 selling season has been nonexistent, and foreclosures -- fifth most in 2008, according to RealtyTrac -- seem to be the only properties selling. That's helped resale sales activity rise, at the expense of prices, the consulting firm's Chris Porter says. It expects the median resale price to decline into 2012. The good news? Affordability is excellent.
