McCormick Ranch Homes Monthly Real Estate Report - August 2011
McCormick Ranch is what I like to call "Classic Scottsdale", located in the 85258 Zip Code. Because 85258 is home to what many consider to be the best school district in Arizona (Scottsdale Unified School District), and offers such amazing dining/shopping opportunities and miles of walking/biking trails along it's many greenbelts within the community, this area has become extremely popular for people looking for their next home. Add to that it is proximity to the Loop 101 Freeway, and you get the perfect combination when looking for your next home. The 85258 zip code is commonly referred to as McCormick Ranch, and for the purposes of this report, I have included all real estate activity that has occurred in the past month within 85258.

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 August/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.: These are listings that are classified as owner/agent, probate, court approval required, etc.
There are currently 266 Active Listings on the market:
227 Are Traditional Listings
21 Are Short Sales
12 Are Bank-Owned
6 Are Other/Misc.
There are currently 111 Pending Listings:
41 Are Traditional Listings
53 Are Short Sales
8 Are Bank-Owned
9 Is/Are Misc.
During the month of August/2011, there were 63 Closed Listings:
41 Were Traditional Listings
8 Were Short Sales
10 Were Bank-Owned
4 Is/Are Misc.
Finally, in the McCormick Ranch Homes Monthly Real Estate Report, we will compare month/month cost per square foot for those homes that closed escrow in Austust/2011:
The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in July/2011 in McCormick Ranch was $153.94per square foot.
The Average Price/Square Foot for homes sold in August/2011 in McCormick Ranch was $141.56 per square foot.
This represents a 8.7 decrease in price/square foot within the community from July/2011 to August/2011. The fact that 18 of the 63 homes that closed escrow were bank owned or short sales probably had a great deal to do with this.
