About David Crozier, Scottsdale Phoenix Cave Creek Realtor

Thank you for visiting my website.  I am proud to represent Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, and thrilled to help people buy and sell homes and land in the extraordinary communities of Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, Fountain Hills, Phoenix and beyond.

I have a passion for this business, and a commitment to unsurpassed professionalism and customer service.  Throughout my career I've been involved in marketing, corporate & community affairs and high-end customer service, so I bring a unique combination of knowledge, skills, creativity, enthusiasm and integrity to this business. 

An industry colleague frequently sends me referrals with this endorsement:  "With David, it is about the Mission to help people, not just the commission to get a sale."

For 2008 - 2012,  my sales figures put me among the top 3-5% of all Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage agents in Arizona. And while I have sold many million-dollar-plus luxury homes, I am every bit as committed to helping a first-time buyer find a great home.

In addition, I am a member of our "Previews International" Luxury team, a Certified "Cartus" Relocation team for corporate relocations, a member of the USAA Movers Advantage program, an E-agent (basically a fast-responder to internet inquiries) and equally adept at marketing homes for sale as finding the best ones available for my buyers.  I'm very proud to have been honored by Realtor.com with their Online Marketing Award of Excellence.   And I am a member of the Scottsdale Association of Realtors Government Relations Committee, which is dedicated to support the interests of homeowners in our area.

As a listing agent, I have developed a unique approach to "brand positioning" and marketing individual homes, working hard to differentiate my listings to generate showings and the highest potential price.  Several of my listings have sold for nearly $100,000 more than nearby foreclosures and short sales!

Through this real estate web site, you have the ability to search virtually every home for sale in Scottsdale, Cave Creek, North Phoenix, Phoenix, Carefree, Fountain Hills and Rio Verde and all other local areas. In addition to accessing houses and real estate for sale, this web site features comprehensive community information for Maricopa County areas that can help guide you in making the right buying or selling decision.  But consider this a starting point, as I have access to outstanding tools to create Custom Searches based on your search for the perfect home. 
 
It would be an honor to help you or anyone you know with real estate in this amazing area we get to call home.  Please call me on 480-748-8890 anytime!

Scottsdale Phoenix Area Market Update
 
Today, our local housng market is robust -- a remarkable recovery from a lengthy recession.   Prices have rebounded from their absolute lows in Fall 2011 and are gaining in every segment of the market.
 
The Big Picture:  Throughout our MLS, our median sales price has risen dramatically over the last year.  The rising prices were driven by many factors:  fewer foreclosures, fewer short sales, and enthusiasm from large and small investors to buy and rent, "or fix and flip," affordable properties.   The profound story today remains low inventory:  At the worst stages, we had well over 50,000 properties "not selling."  Today, the figure hovers around 20,000.   Experts consider 30,000 to 36,000 to be "normal" for our area.  All of this translates to demand outpacing supply, which drives up prices.

Under these conditions, Sellers are growing more optimistic about getting higher prices, and Buyers are often competing with many others to purchase a quality home. 
  
A Look at the Northeast Valley:  Since much of the "Big Picture" is driven by lower price homes, I would like to share the story for the Northeast Valley of the Sun real estate.  This analysis looks at single family homes $300,000 to $1million in North Scottsdale, Cave Creek, and Carefree -- the communities where I focus much of my business.  For this area, our average price per square foot of $194 is rising about 8-10% annually.  Available inventory is down slightly from last year, and roughly half of what it was two years ago.  Foreclosures are only a small part of our market, and banks are holding the line on short sales and foreclosure prices most of the time.   The ratio of selling price to asking price has also improved from a low of 94% to today's level of around 97%. 

A Closer Look at Luxury Real Estate Trends:  For this analysis I looked homes listed for $1 million and up.  The median sales price for this group is rising rapidly -- an indication that high-end homes are moving again.  The average price per square foot is also rising about 8-10% annually.  In contrast to other segments, the ratio of sales price to list price is about 95%, a reflection of the reality that luxury buyers -- often buying with cash -- are routinely offering well under the asking price, and many sellers expect to negotiate over price.  As typical with luxury homes, supply outweighs demand:  we have about 11 months suppy available right now, compared to 3.6 months in the other group.
