Local Information For Arizona Real Estate Investors

The Arizona real estate markets have grown exponentially over the last few years, with local cities seeing large population growth and therefore demand for both permanent homes and rental property. Arizona ranked 6th in the country for hottest new construction markets during 2022 with residential construction permits being issued at a rate of 9.14 per 1,000 residents. Fix and flip profits continued to provide strong returns for AZ real estate investors, with an average of 13.5% ROI totaling approximately $50,000 in average gross profit. Right now homes are spending an average of 77 days on market, which is closer to a healthy balanced market than the state has experienced for quite some time. That said, the AZ real estate market still favors the seller as supply remains lagging behind and real estate investors working inside a balanced market can spend additional time seeking the right property and planning their strategy. However, when you find the perfect project, you still need to move fast to maximize your time and your dollars, so working with a hard money lender like Asset Based Lending that closes in less than two weeks is perfect for growing your business.

Recommended Cities For Arizona Real Estate Investing

Asset Based Lending are experts in local Arizona real estate markets, reviewing trends and shifts to better inform our borrowers while providing the best possible loan terms for each project. Compiling data from Redfin, public town records, and local news sources, we believe some of the best Arizona neighborhoods for real estate investors are:

Phoenix One of the best cities for real estate investing in the country, not just the state, is Phoenix. The capital of Arizona is experiencing a mix of demand for rental properties and permanent housing that has driven prices up to slightly below the five-year-high for the market. The average home sale price is currently $404,490, and homes are spending an average of 70 days on market. Its important to note that the city is seeing more than 1,000 homes change hands per month, highlighting an incredibly active market that benefits real estate investors. As of March 2023, the area is boasting an unemployment rate of 3.3%, an attractive statistic for investors looking to grow their money over time. Builders and developers interested in using new construction loans to take advantage of the Phoenix market’s strong local economy and rising demand for homes by filling the inventory gaps with their product.

Tucson Tucson is growing in nearly every metric across real estate and local economy. Currently the average home sale price is sitting at $310,000 which is a 5% increase from the previous year and slightly below the city’s five-year-high. Homes are spending an average of 67 days on market, with nearly 20% of home sales occurring above the listing price which benefits real estate investors. The city’s unemployment rate is hovering around 3.9% which indicates a strong local economy and helps to offer real estate investors a plan for long term growth for investing in the area. With the average home sale price being lower than the others on this list, the lower barrier to entry makes it a favorable market for fix and flips. First time investors in Arizona should consider Tucson for their first deal, as they could also refinance and hold the property in their rental portfolio. 

Scottsdale This major metro area that sits next to Phoenix is one of the strongest real estate markets in the state, boasting an average home sale price of $730,000. With homes spending an average of 76 days on market, Scottsdale represents a balanced market where homes are selling for incredibly high prices, making it an attractive city for builders looking for new construction projects. Nearly 10% of homes sell above listing price, usually selling for upwards of 5% above asking. The local economy is booming, with new residents moving to the area from all over the country, but especially from other areas on the west coast. Scottsdale has the lowest unemployment rate on our list at 3.1% and has strong tourism traffic that brings in more than 11 million people per year for a total of $3.3 billion of city revenue. These type of stats point towards rental property being a great investment, especially short term rentals like Airbnb and Vrbo, taking advantage of the constant tourism that visits town in short bursts.

Why Arizona Investors Choose Fix And Flips

Fix and flips are one of the most consistent and reliable forms of real estate investing, offering profits that allow investors the ability to funnel that capital into their next projects. Right now Arizona fix and flips are on the rise, with a total of nearly 8% of home sales in the state attributed to flips. Arizona fix and flip investments are seeing an average profit of $50,000 as of Q1 2022. More than one-third of real estate investors use outside financing for their projects, with AZ hard money lenders being the preferred choice for bridge loans since investors can both close and exit the deals quickly. Our fix and flip loans focus on closing in 10 days on average so our borrowers never miss an opportunity due to financial delays. Whether you need to close fast, are seeking flexible loan terms, or another lender simply dropped the ball, ABL is here to help.

Using Hard Money Loans For Fix And Flips

Financing a fix and flip investment requires a lending partner that can close fast and offer a variety of loan options. That’s why so many real estate investors prefer hard money loans for fix and flips, as this type of financing can close in less than two weeks and comes with flexible loan terms. For example, Asset Based Lending has closed loans as quickly as two business days with the appropriate paperwork. These speedy loans allow fix and flip investors the opportunity to secure deals that would normally be missed if using another financing option. AZ hard money loans are also less stringent with its documentation requirements- aside from recent bank statements and a credit check, hard money lenders forego documents such as tax records or income verification. Investors that have tried borrowing from a bank or other traditional financial institutions know the pushback- the projects are inherently risky and banks typically don’t want to involve themselves in these types of projects. Or if they do choose to lend, its an agonizingly long process with enough loan stipulations, such as prepayment penalties or intensive documentation requirements, that ends up hurting the deal too much from the investor’s point of view. When it comes to fast and efficient lending for fix and flips, hard money loans are the best option for borrowers, and no lender does it better than Asset Based Lending.

Arizona New Construction Investment Info

Steady population growth combined with limited housing inventory has made Arizona new construction one of the most profitable investments in the state, providing the supply needed to meet increased demand. The number of building permits issued for new single-family homes in Phoenix increased by more than 3% year over year, with areas such as Franklin County seeing double-digit increases. Over 5,000 multifamily units were under construction in Scotsdale in Q1 2022, with the price per unit jumping over 24% from the previous year. The strong local economy and demand for housing helps fuel these types of increases, which builders and developers can take advantage of. The state’s housing supply is hovering around one month, which is far below the minimum three month supply needed to indicate a balanced market. Right now, demand is far outpacing supply, which has led to a 5% decrease in newly listed homes over the last year. Builders and developers can take advantage of these market conditions by filling the gaps in inventory and profiting from the seller’s market the state finds itself in.

Arizona Rental Markets

The large metro areas such as Tucson and Phoenix are contributing to Arizona’s strengthening rental market, offering affordable rental property that’s seeing consistent year over year growth. For example, Phoenix has seen an 11% year over year increase in its average rent prices, and with 54% of the city’s population renting versus owning its an attractive location for real estate investors looking for their next rental property. Tucson is in a similar situation, with a 10% year over year increase in its average rent prices. The city has a slightly lower rental population of 46%, but that won’t impact the ability to fill vacancies as demand for the area continues to rise and prices remain at an affordable cost compared to the local economy. As mentioned earlier, areas like Phoenix are benefitting from increased tourism thanks to a developed and University of Arizona bringing a steady stream of visitors throughout the year. This consistent flow of temporary residents are boosting the short term rental market in the area, making Airbnb and Vrbo properties a viable investment strategy. Whether you’re looking to buy and hold property for traditional long-term rentals or are interested in growing a small portfolio of short term rental properties, Asset Based Lending can help finance your success. If you’re ready to start or grow your real estate rental portfolio using our Arizona rental loans, then contact us today.


Arizona Stabilized Bridge Loans

Hard Money Bridge Loans for Stabilized Proprety

With the real estate markets shifting in different directions, such as the cooling down of home sale prices and rising interest rates on rental loans, some borrower’s exit strategies need to shift with it. That’s why Asset Based Lending now offers bridge loans for stabilized properties, allowing borrowers the option to reposition their investment and wait for market conditions to match their desired exit. These bridge loans are designed for investors who have recently completed a renovation or ground up construction but believe market conditions don’t favor their current exit strategy, so they decide to hold the property as a rental. Or maybe you’re an investor that’s looking at a turnkey rental property that you may eventually sell or refinance when mortgage rates come down in the future. Either way, you need an interest only loan without pre-payment penalties to bridge the gap.

How Do These Stabilized Bridge Loans Work?

Our 2-year debt service coverage loans can help bridge your financing for up to 24 months with no prepayment penalty, so you can exit the loan whenever you’re ready. With extensions available for an additional fee, we’ll make sure you’re properly financed from start to finish so that you have time to determine your final exit strategy and capitalize on your investment at the right time. We can provide stabilized financing for properties up to 20 units, using the lesser of either market rent or leased rent to determine the DSCR and deliver you competitive loan terms. While all loans are different and structured to meet the individual investor’s needs, the typical stabilized loan is a 2-year interest-only loan with rates starting at 10.5% and LTV up to 65%-70%. Loan terms are determined based on factors such as borrower experience, FICO score, and DSCR, using the lesser of either market rent or leased rent to determine your DSCR. If you have a deal that requires temporary bridge financing, then contact us today.
