Maricopa County Nearly Doubles Existing-Home Sales in U.S.

Sometimes headlines like “Existing-Home Sales Climb Record 20.7% in June” make Fletcher Wilcox laugh. This was one of those times.

Existing-home sales rebounded at a record pace in June, following three consecutive months of sales declines, the National Association of REALTORS® reported.

Wilcox, a VP at Grand Canyon Title Agency, recently moderated his third Influencer Marketing series for Scottsdale REALTORS® and as usual, he led with local market trends.

“Maricopa County was way above the national average with 40.6% — nearly twice as good,” he smiled over Zoom. “Which is why you need to compare local data against national stats — because we may be doing better, or worse, than national numbers.”
