Before I begin to explain the findings in the above chart, allow me to take a moment to define some of the terms.

Active: Listings that are currently listed as being "Active" in the MLS.

Pending: Listings that are currently under contract. This includes both Short Sales and Traditional (non- distressed) listings.

Closed: These are homes that closed escrow during the month of January /2012.

Traditional: These are listings that are "non-distressed" (i.e., not short sales or bank-owned).

Short Sales: These are listings that are marketed/sold for less than what is owed on their respective mortgages.

Bank-Owned: As the title implies, these are listings that are marketed/sold by the bank/lender that owns them.

Other/Misc.: These listings are owner/agent, probate, court approval required, etc.

There are currently 80 Active Listings on the market in Desert Ridge:

59 Are Traditional Listings

9 Are Short Sales

11 Are Bank Owned

1 Is/Are Other/Misc.

There are currently 131 Pending Listings in Desert Ridge:

33 Are Traditional Listings

83 Are Short Sales

8 Are Bank-Owned

During the month of January / 2102, there were 47 closed listings in Desert Ridge:

23 Were Traditional Listings

Finally, in the Desert Ridge AZ Homes Monthly Real Estate Report, we will compare month/month cost per square foot for those homes that closed escrow in January / 2012:

The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in December/2011 in Desert Ridge AZ was $115.63 per square foot.

The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in January /2012 was $113.85 per square foot.

This represents a 1.56% decrease in prices within the community from December /2011 to January /2012.  The fact that 14 of the 47 closings were  either Short Sales or bank-owned homes probably had a lot to do with this decrease.
