I just posted the Sun City Grand Arizona, September 2009 home sales report. There were 16 homes sold this month versus 19 in September of 2008. Year to date numbers show a reduction as well, 264 sales for 2009 & 322 sales for 2008. While sales are down from last year our inventories have also been running at an all time low.
Overall, Sun City Grand is fairing far better than most of the other Arizona active retirement communities in overall sales as well as the number of foreclosures coming on the market. As of this writing there are around 20 homes scheduled for foreclosure. Some of these may be sold as short sales and never actually go into foreclosure.
Compare these numbers with Corte Bella, a much smaller community, and you'll see why it may take Corte Bella longer to recover. It looks as though there are around 30 Corte Bella foreclosures scheduled at this time. Again, these may never hit the market as foreclosure if they are successfully sold as short sales. There are currently only 3 listed as foreclosure sales.
