TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — The Tucson Association of REALTORS® is reporting a 20.5% increase in year-to-date median sales price for a home.
This largest trade association in Southern Arizona lists the new, average price at $336,300.
Norada Real Estate Investments ran the numbers.
Their analysis reveals a total of 2,059 single-family homes were sold from Jan. to Feb. That's a slight decrease of 0.6% from 2021
The real estate firm believes this decline in sales is because of an increase in mortgage interest rates, which briefly exceeded 4% in February.
Mortgage interest rates have not been this high since since May 2019.
Across Pima County, the median list price of homes is up 18.6% compared to last year at $350,000.
