Some quick conclusions we can draw from these Tucson home sales statistics are:

Positive Market Indicators this month: Days on Market dropped to 60. Total Unit sales were up year over year and month over month. Average Sales Price was up year over year and month over month. Median sales price was up year over year and month over month. Total Sales Volume was up 18.38% year over year and up 8.11% over last month. All price metrics continue increase as we move through the year.

Negative Market Indicators this month: None, Market continues strong as we move through our summer season.

Market Outlook: The 1st quarter was amazing, the second quarter finished up very strong so we are in fact experiencing a stronger than usual Summer Season. Interest rates are beginning to creep up but so far that has not impacted sales. We expect buyers may get a little more motivated as they become more aware of the changing interest rate environment.

Interest rates remain very low although they are bouncing along a little higher than last year as rates slowly creep upward. Expectations remain that the Fed will begin raising interest rates later this year.

The National Economy continues to slowly improve, Almost all economic data points continue to slowly grind upward continuing to support improving real estate markets across the nation.
