Summary

COMMENTARY by Tom Ruff
In October, ARMLS reported a decline in year-over-year sales volume, down 1.2 percent. When we take into consideration one less business day this year, the 1.2 percent decline is greater than it appears on the surface. The last time we saw a downturn in our market like this was in August 2013, as the large institutional investors abruptly curtailed their purchases.

The result?

Sales volume in the following year fell nearly 11 percent before recovering in 2015, when sales volume returned to 2013 levels. Traditional homebuyers, led by boomerang and first-time buyers, replaced the opportunistic investors and sales grew four consecutive years, validating the adage that economists and analysts are great at predicting the past.

What does all of this mean? It’s a great time to have a Phoenix investment home, and a great time to rent a home in Phoenix! Check out our available rentals at: http://allcountyprestige.com/available-rentals

A friend mentions you could rent out your home while you’re gone, and even make a little money. Here’s how a military family can rent their home fast.

When you start to think about the whole process of renting, you might might just throw up your hands and give up.
