ARMLS data shows Scottsdale had 7 sales above $5 million and Paradise Valley had 11 sales above $5 million. The Phoenix market topped out just above $4 million. There were a few off the market sales ranging upwards of $10 million.
The Arizona luxury real estate market continues to see a surge in expensive home sales. We keep breaking records. Last year we broke a record above $15 million, this year at $17.5 million. Will 2019 continue to break records, is think we might say luxury agent Juan Pesqueira. We might finally hit the $20 million price…
P:S – these homes could change as we might see a new leader after the year seeing that we have 5 homes pending above $5 million…
