2021 Home Sales Projections

Most sellers and buyers are planning on home sales to remain strong through 2021, experts like Fannie Mea are planning a slightly higher projection, but NAR National Association of Realtors has a strong jump from 6.34 million for 2020 to 7.06 in 2021.  This is not the highest projection that goes to MBA coming at a whopping 7.17 million for 2021.  National numbers, so more than likely Arizona being a positive population growth state, these numbers can be beat!

Perhaps with all the experts planning similar outcomes for 2021 we can also remain very optimistic that unemployment can improve in Arizona, real estate construction paving the way for a great economy in Arizona.  Keeping people moving this way, and places like Surprise AZ, growing at a rapid pace and very desirable place to call home!

Arizona Home Price Projections 2021

Home prices in Arizona have the chance to remain moving up in record numbers again in 2021.  Mainly fueled by low mortgage rates, and low inventory.  Freddie Mac +2.6%, Nar +6%, this is definitely a wide spread between the two.
