The inventory of homes available for sale in the Sun Cities is lower than normal according to local real estate professionals.
This low supply can be a benefit for people selling their homes because the increased demand impacts sales prices. That also hampers buyers in paying prices as low as they would like, real estate agents are out their commissions and recreation centers may have lower income from the fees they get when homes are purchased.
Roger Hibline and his daughter, Brenda Ficoturo, are realtors with Caldwell Banker in Sun City West and have been selling real estate in the Sun Cities since 2012. Mr. Hibline said he retired to Arizona after selling homes in Hawaii for several years and he and his daughter have sold 180 homes in the past three years.
