Increasing property values in Phoenix area point to recovery



Median assessed values of Valley homes and businesses increased this year by double-digit percentages for the first time in seven years, suggesting local real-estate markets are recovering, the Maricopa County assessor says.

About 1.6 million valuation notices for the 2015 tax year were mailed out at the end of February. All classifications of properties — vacant lands, single-family homes, condominiums, apartments, commercial properties and manufactured housing — saw improvements in value this year. Commercial-property values have increased for the first time since 2009.

“That shows you that even in one year, market conditions have improved dramatically,” Maricopa County Assessor Paul Petersen said. “That’s a good thing overall, because it shows the health of the real-estate market in Maricopa County is better, much improved.”

This is the second year in a row that single-family residential properties’ median full cash values increased by 10 percent or more.
