This is the table and graph for MMR homes for sale and sold since 2007. As you can see, prices per SF have dropped 28% in 2008.  They have dropped another 3% during 2009.  The average sales price in MMR dropped 26.3% in 2008 and a whopping 17.5% in 2009.  The average sales price in MMR is only $448,476 in 2009.  We finally had a home sell for over $520k this year!  Otherwise the average sale in MMR is only $408k. 

Prices are continuing to decrease.  Based on the fact that 15.3% of the homes listed in MMR are distress sales, these numbers may be headed lower in the near term.  While the distressed sales are lower than the rest of the valley (43.5% distressed), they represent the competition for all home sales.  The distressed properties are listed in the price range of $307,500 to $1,490,000.

 There have been 3 homes sold for over $700,000 in the last 3 months with the highest sale 2/10/09 at $899,000 and $232/sf.  There are currently 57 homes on the market in MMR over $700k.  This equates to a 57 month supply of homes.  The breakdown is 16 homes priced $700k - $800k, 11 homes priced $800k - $900k, 12 homes priced $900k - $999k, with the remaining 18 homes priced above $1.0mil.  The last home that sold for over $1.0mil was in Sept. 08.  Only 3 homes have sold for over $1.0mil since July 08. This is the summary for McDowell Mountain Ranch real estate.    Sorry I cannot provide better news, but it is the facts as reported in the MLS system.
