 Markets across the United States vary how much they are off in year over year closed transaction units. Some are off 10-15%. However, the overall Tucson market is down 25-30%. In the Pacific Northwest and California, where so many of our SaddleBrooke Buyers hail from, the markets are down as much as 40%! 

Agents are reporting an overall inventory shortage. Many feel they have good Buyers, but need listings to sell them!

Our April SaddleBrooke Buyer activity is decreasing. Most agents feel this is seasonal, but below normal seasonal activity. An MLS Economist says she thinks 2023 will continue to be an up/down year but next year we should return to more normal seasonality.

Attendance at our Open Houses continues to be somewhat active, although we expect the numbers to decrease as our seasonal visitors leave for the summer months. We enjoyed a very brisk rental market this winter season and are hopeful that some of these renters will sell their homes during the summer, then return here to make a purchase afterwards!
