Kierland is an amazing area, located in the "magical" 85254 Zip Code of Scottsdale, AZ. Because 85254 is home to what many consider to be the best school districts in Arizona (Scottsdale Unified School District & Paradise Valley Unified School District), and offers some of the best dining/shopping opportunities at the nearby Kierland Commons, this area has become extremely popular for people looking for their next home. Add to that it's proximity to the Loop 101 and 51 freeways, and you get the perfect combination when looking for your next home. The 85254 Zip Code is commonly referred to as Kierland, and for the purposes of this report, I have included all real estate activity that has occurred in the past month within 85254.

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 December/2011.

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.: Involves listings that are classified as owner agent, probate, court approval required, etc.

There are currently 204 Active Listings on the market:

153 Are Traditional Listings

28 Are Short Sales

16 Are Bank-Owned

7 Is/Are Misc.

There are currently 180 Pending Listings:

43 Are Traditional Listings

103 Are Short Sales

26 Are Bank-Owned

5 Is/Are Misc.

During the month of December/2011, there were 74 closed listings:

36 Were Traditional Listings

30 Were Short Sales

05 Were Bank-Owned

3 Is/Are Misc.

Finally, in the Kierland Homes Monthly Real Estate Report, we will compare month/month cost per square foot for those homes that closed escrow in December/2011:

The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in November/2011 in Kierland was $142.76 per square foot

The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in December/2011 in Kierland was $125.45 per square foot.

This represents a 13.80% decrease in prices within the community from November/2011 to December/2011.  This may be due to the fact that 30 of the 74 homes that closed escrow were Short Sale transactions.
