Houses for Sale in Phoenix
Need a little help searching for houses for sale in Phoenix AZ? A more thorough approach that uses the full power of the Internet to maximize visibility of homes to you is recommended.
Relying solely on a local Phoenix Realtor might be common, but putting all your eggs in one basket could mean you’re not finding the best houses for sale.
The reason for this is that a lot of homes aren’t listed on the MLS where Realtors draw almost all of their leads from. Some realtors have pocket listings which they want to sell themselves. Can’t blame them. The real estate business is a difficult, competitive industry.
There are at least 5,400 homes for sale in Phoenix listed on realtor.com alone and zillow has almost 7,000 homes listed. That’s a lot of houses for sale! The house you’re looking for may never be listed so you’ll want to be more proactive to get first dibs.
House prices have not reached the pre-recession highs in 2007 and given the moderation trends occuring now, they may not reach them. You should have slightly better luck in 2018.
