Driving Factors For Arizona Real Estate Market

Prices Will Continue To Rise

Increased demand has promoted an incredibly active housing market, but like much of the United States, there isn’t enough inventory to satisfy those searching in the market. Therefore, there is nothing that points to home values dropping, in fact, it’s safe to assume they will continue to rise in the future.

Passive Income Investors

Higher home values have reduced profit margins for rehabbers and flippers. As a result, long-term investors acquiring rental properties have achieved attractive monthly cash flows.

Economy Recovering Well

Arizona’s economy has recovered well over the past 10 years, including a solid rebound from the pandemic. Therefore, a strong economy and relatively low interest rates have promoted homeownership across the state.

EquityMax Insight

Arizona was once one of the most popular areas for flippers and rehabbers with its great climate, variety of opportunities, and lucrative profit margins for investors. While quality fix-and-flip deals still exist, more and more investors are moving towards long-term rental properties. Attainable borrowing costs are offsetting the historically high home prices and the state’s price-to-rent ratio of 26.63 means more buyers are looking to rent than own a home. Regardless of the exit-strategy you choose, we advise all our investors to keep their eyes closely on the real estate market, ready to jump on any deals that come up.
