Canadians Outpace California Buyers in Maricopa County


Canadian home buyers have been taking advantage of their increased purchasing power in the warm-weather Phoenix market. The percentage of Canadian home buyers in Maricopa County has been on the rise since 2007 and now account for a larger sales volume than neighboring Californians.

Fueled by a strong Canadian dollar, which reached a high against the U.S. dollar in July 2007, and increasingly affordable Phoenix housing prices, down 51% since the previous peak in 2006, many Canadians are seeing an opportunity to taking advantage of these favorable market conditions and are purchasing second/seasonal homes. Many of these home buyers are reported to be purchasing with all cash.

Canadian home buyers within Maricopa County accounted for 4.2% of the total new and resale homes purchased in June 2010 in comparison to 4.1% by purchasers from California, according to records tracked by The Information Market. This represents a significant increase from the low average of 0.2% of sales volume from 2003 to 2006.

This period of parity between Canada’s “loonie” (dollar) and the submarket’s affordable home prices, is creating a unique and attractive opportunity for Canadians to own real estate in the Valley of the Sun.

This is the most current available data for all variables and markets.

* The government defines metro areas and includes metro divisions within some areas. In these instances, we report at the more detailed division level, because that is what most of our clients use for decision making. For example, we report on the Los Angeles and Orange County divisions separately, rather than the Los Angeles MSA, which includes both Los Angeles and Orange counties. We also use the more colloquial names used by business people, so we refer to the “Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine” division as “Orange County.” For the government definitions, visit: http://www.census.gov/population/www/metroareas/lists/2007/List1.txt
