In any given month, distressed sales (foreclosures,short sales, or trustee sales) account for over 50% of the total sales in most all of the Phoenix valley cities. Ski lake properties have been somewhat insulated from this type of transaction, but during 2010 distressed sales have increased in these unique waterfront communities. Three of the Phoenix ski communities had no recorded sales of any kind in 2010. All sales during the year ocurred in Gilbert ski lake communities; Crystal Point, Santan Lakeside and Playa del Rey Estates. 33% of those were distressed sales.
