The Wickenburg 2006 Real Estate Market

 

   Wickenburg, AZ. : Here is an historical overview of the Real Estate market in Wickenburg from Jan 1- Dec 31, 2006 with a comparison to the figures for the same time in 2005.  Clearly the local market reflects the downturn experienced nationwide. While the summer months showed little to no activity, at all, the fall and early winter are showing increased activity, with buyers coming out.

However, downward pressure on pricing continues, both nationally and locally. Inventory, (the number of homes on the market) in Wickenburg is at the highest level Iíve ever seen! This means Buyers have more to choose from, and are looking for good value. While buying activity has increased from the summer months, the Phoenix market, as well as the Wickenburg market, in my opinion, have not seen the bottom of pricing quite yet.

My guess is, Buying activity will increase  over the next 6 months, with prices adjusting downward slightly, solidifying, and then either holding or increasing very slowly. There are early signs that Interest rates are creeping up, which should push buyers off the fence, before they get back up to 7%.  But as rates go up, Buyers will be able to afford less.

We donít expect an upward spike in pricing again, any time soon.
