Records are made to be broken says Juan Pesqueira with Attorneys Realty, in February of 2018 a luxurious estate situated on 4 private acres on the 6th hole of the Tom Weiscopf designed Silverleaf golf course recorded with a $17.5 million-dollar price tag, making that the most expensive home every sold in Arizona.

“Top-tier sales in the first three months of 2018 reflected the buyers’ readiness to act.” We are seeing promising trends that will continue to go up. High inventory gives buyers options. If you’re a buyer be ready to act because the good properties are not lasting even at the top tier markets. Arizona is a bargain for the California, Miami, New York, and other countries. If you’re a seller staying current on the latest trends will be challenging, but crucial. It’s going to be important for consumers to adapt their strategy to market conditions as they will continue to change.” – Juan Pesqueira
