The properties analyzed in this report unless otherwise stated are single family detached properties in Greater Phoenix.  Greater Phoenix is defined as the cities in Maricopa County.  The information in this report is from NetValueCentral.com and ARMLS.  ARMLS stands for Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service, Inc.  Eighty-five percent of all residential sales in July 2012 were single family properties. 

July 2012 sales were down sixteen percent from June 2012 sales.  This decrease in July sales is part seasonal.  For ten of the last twelve years July sales were lower than June sales.   

July 2012 sales were down sixteen percent from July 2011 sales.  While less sales this July than last July,  there is an important difference.  The median sales price per square foot was up for the eleventh consecutive month increasing 1.6% from June 2012, while July 2011 sales prices decreased 4.0% from June 2011.  See pages four and five.    

In July 2012 the median sales price per square foot was $86.77 compared to $66.59 in July 2011 for an increase of thirty percent.  See page six. 

What else is up or down in July?

  • Short sale median price per square foot was up 6.9% or $4.61 over June and had a higher  percentage increase than lender owned sales and traditional sales, but still trails both of them. See page six.  The short sale median price per square foot had been flat. 
  • The median sales price was $165,000 compared to $162,000 in June 2012.  See page seven. 
  • The mean sales price per square foot paid by third parties (investors) at trustee’s auctions was $81.08 in week twenty-eight of this year, the highest so far, but was down in week thirty-two at $77.09 or five percent.  See page seven. 
  • July 2012 foreclosure starts down twelve percent to 2,836 compared to 3,222 in June 2012.  July 2012 foreclosure starts down nineteen percent from July 2011 and down sixty-three percent from July 2009.  See page eight.
  • Total distressed title transfers were 3,719, up seven percent in July over June.  Distressed title transfers are the combined total of single family properties foreclosed on and single family short sales.  The direction of this number affects the single family rental market.  See page nine.
  • Short sales were thirty percent of sales up one percent over June 2012. See page eleven.

Pages twelve and thirteen show how single family properties were purchased.

Benefits of Buying Real Estate Using Lease Purchase

Posted on Apr 18, 2012 in Buyers, Investors, Sellers

Why Use Lease Purchase/Lease Option to Buy or Sell Your Next Home? 

AZ Rentals, Renting My Home

Lease purchase options are a great way to increase ROI for real estate investors. However, many don’t understand all of the risk and rewards associated with purchase or selling a home using a lease purchase option. Let’s approach the selling side first. There are three types of sellers:

  • Sellers who are upside down – little you can do here
  • Sellers who have Breakeven equity
  • Sellers who have equity – Best option – Did you know that 30% of homes are owned free and clear in the USA? This trend is growing now that the real estate market is down.

There are many ways to negotiated a lease purchase option on a home, parcel of land or investment property. Visit “Lease-to-Buy May Be Good Option“ for a great article on Realtor.com discussing benefits for both Landlord/Seller and Tenant/Buyer sides.
