Sedona Monsoon 2017 and Mother Nature Put On A Show!!!

Posted by On

Sedona Monsoon 2017

Mother Nature Put On A Show

This Sedona Monsoon 2017 storm came through right at dusk. There is slight rainbow (hard to see)  in the last segment of the  lightning bolt. It was easy to make out the red, orange and yellow colors with the naked eye.

Some of the lightning was so strong and close that the image in the screen was completely washed out!

A few days ago on the local evening news the station asked a question, “Are you still waiting for monsoon?”  Monsoon may not hit every community as a storm comes through. The energy of the cell can be concentrated in small areas as it moves through. 

I would have been in the 65% of the people that said they were still waiting for monsoon. As of yesterday, that has changed!  Mother Nature decided to send not just one cell, but two!  The microbursts went right through Sedona about a half hour apart. We had about 1.15 inches of rain in a short time. Rick and I sat outside and enjoyed the show. Something we have not done in quite some time. 

As I am writing this, another cell just came through! The microburst dropped about half an inch of rain in half an hour. When the rain came the temps dropped about 25º in 20 minutes! It is now a pleasent 62º.  You gotta love it!

Sedona Luxury Market Review Mid Year 2017

In determining the 2017 mid year Sedona Luxury review, I updated the top 10% of the market for the period of January thru June of 2017.  The Top 10% of the Sedona luxury market is hovering around $850,000. For the purpose of this analysis, we will key in only on homes equal or greater to $1,000,000.

Sedona Luxury Market Review Mid Year 2017

The top home closed at $5,000,000 during the first six months. Most of the luxury homes that have closed have a minimum of 3 bedrooms or more and at least 3 baths. These luxury homes are usually pretty spacious and most of them have views that take your breath away. The average square footage in 2017 was 4714. Kitchens are updated with chef style high end appliances. A Sub-Zero refrigeration system can run $10,000 and up while a Wolf Dual-Fuel range can start at over $10,000 for a 36 inch model. These are just examples of what many Sedona luxury homes showcase.

Luxury Sedona homes for saleThere is always the WOW factor with these homes. A special wine cellar or a spa like sauna room. You may find high end home theatre systems or libraries. Some of these luxury homes boast gorgeous courtyards for entertaining and alcoves to be alone in your thoughts. Master suites are retreats unto themselves with luxurious spa like bathrooms and dressing areas that may be as big as a bedroom!  Finishes and amenities are always top of the line and some of these homes have the highest quality and up-to-date tech.

Watch Wild Javelina Roam Sedona Real Estate

Javelina Roam Sedona Real Estate

Many people think that javelina are hairy pigs. They are not. Collard Peccary is what they are called and are the only wild ‘pig like’ animal found in the USA. Wild boar are found on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California. Javelina usually travel in groups small or large. I have seen as many as 50 grazing on grass grubs. We also have a single Javie come by that we nickname “Harold”.

The javelina can make a real mess of your garden areas.  Like pigs, they eat just about anything.  We have gates in out courtyard and every once in awhile, I would come home to roots and flower pots all over the courtyard.  I finally saw a javelina come through the 4 inch opening in the gate!  Once I put up rabbit wire, no more problems.  

In the summer, they burrow a shallow trench to get to the cool dirt under the Pinon Pine, Juniper and Arizona Cypress behind our home. They also use this area for birthing. Many times we have gone outside to hear what sound like a hurt javelina, only to find a baby or two the next day. 

As you watch the video, the javelina look very docile, don’t let that fool you!  They can go after each other if one of the other navies comes after their food.   

One more thing about javelina.  They have a unique order that you can smell many yards away.  After a rain the smell is even more pungent!  

In Sedona, homes have to be built to allow wild animals to travel.

Cornville – Page Springs – Verde Santa Fe – Market Report

 

June 2017 cornville

June Cornville Market Reports will also cover Page Springs Verde Santa Fe market as well. First of all, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”. See the definition of Market Action Index above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

Cornville AZ 86325 which includes the community of Page Springs and Verde Santa Fe, is growing among those looking at buying homes for sale. Many homes such as the neighborhoods and sub-divisions of Verde Santa Fe are newer homes with great appeal. Verde Santa Fe (VSF) has several neighborhoods that appeal to a variety of residents and buyers. VSF amenities abound, from gated communities, two clubhouses, neighborhood and community pools and a golf course where residents can belong to the VSF Men’s Club or Ladies League. Call golf course for more info and pricing @ 928-634-5454.

These Cornville Market Reports will highlight 86325

As a bedroom community of Sedona, and it’s close proximity to Cottonwood can be very appealing to many people. Cottonwood has big box stores such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart as well as the Verde Valley Medical Center. This is very appealing to many who need to be near medical facilities, doctors and other professionals. Many doctors live in Verde Santa Fe or Cornville because of it’s close proximity to the Medical Center in Cottonwood.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

The Days on Market (DoM) are down an additional 4 weeks from early May. The overall DoM is at 4.4 months which is in the Seller zone. the lowest tier has dropped to 29 days which is pretty significant. That means  from the day it hits the market to the day it is closed is only 29 days. Most loans take 30 days with nothing going wrong!

Bottom Line

Overall the real estate market for Cornville, Page Springs and Verde Santa Fe continues to have very low inventory. This market is in a strong seller zone. Buyers do not have much room to negotiate because there is another buyer waiting in the wings. My recommendation is to look for homes that have been sitting on the market for a long period of time. Homes that need some work or upgrades may have room for negotiation. 

Luxury Market For Sedona

One note: The SEDONA Luxury Market has a price point of $940,000 for the top 10% – (December 25, 2016 thru June 25, 2017). This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings for all of Sedona.

Cornville

The top 10% of closed listings in Cornville for the period of November 2016 to May 2017, is $450,000. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) is at $509,000 for Cornville. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares to the sold market for the top 10%. 

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president uses the definition above for defining a luxury listing. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes.


 

MAI or Market Action Index answers the question “Hows the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory.  Index above 30 implies a seller’s advantage.  Below 30, conditions give the advantage to the buyer.

Old Town Cottonwood has been completely renovated in the last few years. It has the charm of the Old West and the modern flair of contemporary restaurants and boutique shopping. One of my favorite gourmet food stores is the Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders. You must go in there and taste the ultra fresh olive oils and balsamic vinegars they offer. This Old Town experience is another reason that the Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Cornville areas are thriving. Not only does this area bring tourism but the locals are fully invested in it’s success!

These Cottonwood AZ Market Reports will highlight 86326

As a bedroom community of Sedona, Cottonwood can be very appealing to many people. Cottonwood also has big box stores such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart and a large Fry’s Supermarket.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

How the Market is Doing 


Median Price 

The Median Price has dropped $9,800 overall from the beginning of May. The two upper brackets have had strong gains while the bottom two brackets are a little softer. The lack of inventory is having some effect. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Inventory

Inventory is showing some recent increases but still very low. Spring is in full swing. There is a slight indication that inventory will increase based on recent numbers.  

 

 Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


 

Days On Market (DoM)

The Days on Market are mixed through the brackets. Currently the DoM is trending down in all brackets.

Most buyers willing to spend that amount for a home would normally be looking at Sedona for a home. However, for top bracket homes, I would target Cottonwood business owners and the medical community. Medical personnel must live within a certain radius of the hospital they work at. Business owners do not want to live to far from their businesses. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI is continues to show a sellers market in all but the top quartile.  The bottom quartile has shown a dramatic increase from the beginning of this year. It is up to 63 MAI. The remaining brackets are also up. The overall MAI is at 37.4 which is well into a strong sellers’ market.

Interactive charts below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Bottom Line

Cottonwood is in the seller zone and but a buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate in the top quartile.  Homes are not staying on the market long in the other quartiles. When the inventory is down, the MAI is going to start to rise higher at some point. It has started to rise again. 

Luxury Market of Sedona

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $860,000 for the top 10% in Sedona. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings for all of Sedona. For Cottonwood, the top 10% of active listings starts in the mid to high $600,000 range. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market of Cottonwood compares to the sold market of Sedona.

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president uses the definition above for defining a luxury listing. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes.


 

MAI or Market Action Index answers the question “Hows the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory.  Index above 30 implies a seller’s advantage.  Below 30, conditions give the advantage to the buyer.

VOC Big Park June Market Report

June ’17 Big Park VOC MARKET HOME ANALYSIS – First of all, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”. See the definition of Market Action Index above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

VOC, Village of Oak Creek or Big Park also known as Sedona 86351 is the bedroom community of Sedona. It is located 20 minutes from the city center off highway 179. There are two zip codes in Sedona, 86336 and 86351. People choose this side of town because there is less traffic, good hiking trails, and a buyer can get more home for the same amount of money as Sedona 86336. It is also closer to the SR 179 for those who travel a lot.

These VOC Market Reports will highlight 86351

In this zip code, you will find a majority of single family homes nestled between some red rock formations. Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, Castle Rock and the back side of Cathedral are the most notable of the formations. You will also find more than a couple of golf courses including an executive 9 hole course. Even though there is some shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. The majority of the zip code has more affordable housing than the zip code of 86336.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

Large Chart


 

Days On Market (DoM)

The properties in VOC – Big Park and Pine Valley have been on the market for an average of 151 DoM. Down 1 month from May. Overall there is a little over 5 month supply of homes on market. The only bracket that is up is the second bracket ($659,000 median price). The bottom segment is down to 2 months supply. It is definitely a Seller’s market with a supply that low. However the top bracket is at 214 days, which is a neutral market for that bracket. 

Generally, the homes that are priced right will go into contract much faster causing the DOM to rise on homes that have been on the market and gone stale.

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

 

Large Chart


Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI continues to trend higher into the seller range at 30.8.  However, the top bracket is not in the seller zone. There have been only 2 months where the top quartile moved into the seller zone.  There is such low inventory in the 86336 zip (Chapel area, Uptown and West Sedona that buyers are moving into the VOC area to purchase a home. This has also created lower inventory and a downward shift in DoM.These conditions drive up the demand creating a seller zone overall for 86351. 

Interactive charts below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart

 

Bottom Line

The Market Action Index which is trending higher. The market is comfortable in the seller zone]. Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek continues to have very low inventory. The inventory will have to continue to rise, to trigger a pricing weakness.

 A buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate.  The reason some homes are stale is because the seller is not willing to drop the price of the home. Keep that in mind when negotiating. 

Luxury Market

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $900,000 for the top 10%. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings for all of Sedona. The top 10% of active listings   (which is different from sold listings) is at $950,000 for the Village. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares to the sold market.

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president uses the definition above for defining a luxury listing. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes.

Inventory

The Inventory hit new lows for the year in April.   Historically, Spring starts the time many sellers put their homes on market. You can see that the inventory has finally started to shift upward.  Note – rising inventory alone does not signal a weakening market. Look at Market Action Index and Days on Market (DoM) to gauge whether buyer interest is keeping up with available supply.

Days On Market

Days On Market – Trends continue to show a decline. With little inventory to pick from all homes are being looked at and offers are being made. New homes on market 4 weeks ago are gone! The DoM will come down because of new listings and old listings selling. The Luxury Market continues to show the biggest decrease in DoM. It is down another 11 days since last report.

Large Chart


Market Action Index

The Market Action Index is mixed. 30 is the break even point between seller vs buyer advantage. It hasmoved up a strong 1.3 points in last 4 weeks.  If this continues, pricing will continue to be a strong seller advantage.  The top quartile is in barely in the buyer zone and has been moving steadily upward since April. Typically the premium segment of the market takes longer to sell.

^^^

Large Chart

 

MAI or Market Action Index answers the question “Hows the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory. Index above 30 implies a seller’s advantage. Below 30, conditions give the advantage to the buyer.

Bottom Line

Inventory is moving up slightly and DoM is dropping and the Market Action Index has also been strong. We have pushed through the height of the Spring selling market. The summer market usually is weaker than Spring and Fall.  We may see this weakening trend as we near  August. 

 

Luxury Market

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president of defines the Luxury Market as the top 10% of the listings available. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes. The price point is at $900,000 for the top 10% of the market. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings.

What you will notice first are Crimson Red Rocks of Capital Butte and Thunder Mountain. June Market Crimson View homes for sale

In the northeast, you can’t help but see Coffeepot Rock.  There are many homes with views of Sedona looking to the east. This area is elevated from SR 89A.

Off in the northwest, you might gaze upon Chimney Rock, but be careful not to take your eyes off the road!  It is easy to do with these beautiful views. It provides views that are not available from the main highway passing through Sedona business district.

Three Minutes to Shopping – Restaurants – Medical 

Speaking about the Sedona business district, just one more reason this area is a favorite among residents and buyers alike is that Crimson View sub-division is close to the business district.  At the bottom of the hill is the Safeway shopping center and numerous restaurants close by.  You will find an Urgent Care as well as other medical facilities and professional offices within another four minutes of the intersection of Rodeo Rd and SR 89A.

There are many trails right above those homes. The Stupa and trails leading to Sugarloaf Mountain are close by and easy to access. I have been up to Sugarloaf and there is an amazing view of the landscape above and below.

Sheri Sperry (928) 274-7355. or visit my website at SellSedona.com

American Airlines has already canceled flights for Tuesday June 20th between 3 PM and 6 PM MST. The reason is that some aircraft cannot fly above 118º.  Take-offs and landings in that kind of heat is a safety hazard because the aircraft may fail. If you are planning a trip out of Mesa or Phoenix airports please check with your airline for updates.

Conserve Power Consumption

The temperature is expected to reach record highs. The hottest day on record for Phoenix is 122º. It is expected to climb to 120º. APS – Phoenix power company has said that they do not expect brown outs but encourage residents and companies to conserve energy output during the hours of 3 PM and 6 PM.  Avoid running high energy appliances such and washing machines and dryers.

How does Excessive Heat Affect Arizona?

Posted by On

As I write this at 11:30 am, it is 105º in Sedona! This is extreme heat for our area. 

Excessive Heat May Affect Arizona Airports

Southwest Take Off From Sky Harbor (PHX) During Monsoon

 

         


American Airlines – just one example… Already cancelled 40 Flights for Wednesday

American Airlines issued an alert to it’s customers for any who have tickets leaving PHX Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between 3pm and 6pm, American will allow the customer to change their departure without any charge.  This is because there is no guarentee that aircraft will be able to take off because of the excessive heat. If you have a departure leaving Mesa Airport, you should also check with your carrier to make sure there are no delays.

Besides soft asphalt conditions at 118º plus, planes and equipment can sink into asphalt! Shoe soles get hot some will melt! Also, Certain aircraft may not be able to create enough lift to get off the runway.  The air becomes much thinner and lift becomes a real issue and it takes a lot more runway to get the aircraft wheels up!

Ground Crews

Let’s also not forget the ground crew. This is a safety issue for them as well. OSHA – Occupatoinal Safety and Health Administration has recommended that outdoor workers who are working in heat between 103º to 115º should drink at least 4 cups of water an hour  but no more than 6 cups an hour … – So about every 15 minutes grab a cup of water. Try to stay out of direct sunlight.

If you are going ot be outside:
  • Only hike in very early morning or late evening before sun comes up and after it goes down. 
  • Do not go on long hikes – especially hikes with elevation changes.
  • Keep plenty of water with you – use same standard as above for workers.
  • Stay in the shade!
  • Stick to water sports when possible.

How Does This Affect Real Estate Clients?

Realtors have to be very careful making sure clients stay hydrated while viewing homes out in the field on days that have extreme heat. 

  • Explain our heat to out-of-state buyers so they can monitor themselves.
  • Make sure you monitor your clients to see they stay hydrated. 
  • Signs of dehydration
  • Bring a cooler with plenty of ice and bottles of water.
  • Keep hand towels available that can be dipped in some water to cool you down. There are cooling towels you can buy.
  • Keep viewings to a reasonable amount. Take breaks and lunch if a full day is planned.
  • Make sure homes have the AC turned on prior to viewing.
  • Stay in the shade as much as possible
  • Keep a couple of shade umbrellas handy for fair-skin buyers 
  • Have discussions about homes in your car with AC turned on!

  the lowest valleys. Hottest days Tuesday and Wednesday. 

* Impacts... a prolonged period of hot temperatures is expected 
  and will significantly increase the potential for heat related 
  illness. Those without access to adequate air conditioning and 
  hydration will be most at risk. 

Precautionary/preparedness actions... 

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The hot temperatures
will create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are
likely. Drink plenty of fluids... stay in an air-conditioned room
if possible... stay out of the sun... and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or

MONSOON ! ~ What is it? ~ How Does It Affect Sedona and Arizona?

Posted by On

Monsoon!

An Arizona Summer Phenomenon

Monsoon - Sedona Top Realtors - Sheri Sperry Remax SedonaBell Rock Sedona – Thunderhead Increasing

 

Information on Monsoon – Sedona, AZ – First of all, there is no need to add season at the end of Monsoon because Monsoon is a season. Monsoon affects the west and southwest states because the pattern of the weather changes as noted below. We started 2017 with better than average rainfall but during April, May and June our rainfall is only been about a half an inch! So we are looking forward to this season.

Preparation For Monsoon

One quick note – Because it is our rainy season and the chance of lightning during a thunderstorm could knock out power, take some time to have things ready to go:

  • Know where the flashlights and candles are for easy access.
  • Keep your cell phone charged
  • Clean out gutters – drains – culverts – rain ditches and any other natural path water may take during a sudden downpour.

What Is Monsoon?

It seems that Southern Arizona, the White Mountains and the Phoenix metropolitan area known as “The Valley” get the brunt of the monsoon affects. It is amazing to see the haboob (desert wind storms)monsoon - Sedona real estate kick up and tower thousands of feet in the air moving through the valley. Those storms are the pre-cursor to the rain and massive storm cells that develop from the moisture in the warm air coming off the Gulf of Mexico. Generally, massive amounts of rain falling create downdrafts that push the air out from the center of the storm which produces a dry wind that kicks up the dust and dirt.

Seasonal Weather Patterns monsoon Arizona Sedona real estate

During summer, weather patterns change.  Storms that travel from the arctic  (Alaska) down through Canada and the lower 48, create our winter storm pattern.

In the summer, the pattern shifts to the south. Hurricanes, storms and moisture travel northwest from the Gulf of Mexico through Mexico, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona moving all the way to California. We also get moisture coming from the Gulf of California traveling directly north. Lots of moisture and an occasional hurricane come up from the coast of Baja California and push northeast into Arizona.

Northern Arizona

Up in Northern Arizona, we get a lot of cloud cover and the storms move through but usually don’t drop a lot of rain here in Sedona.Though in Flagstaff it is quite a different story! The area of Sedona seems to be protected. By that I mean that most of the rain falls elsewhere before it gets to our little city. But when we do get rain and storm cells, it is a big deal around here.

In 2014, Sedona got 7.73 inches of rain from July thru September. In 2013, there was 8.18 inches of rain in the same time frame. Flash flooding can happen because many of the streets are sloped leading up to the red rocks. There has been much improvement made in our drainage system to be able to handle the additional water flow but during an intense storm there is no place for the water to go and mud and rocks can travel across roads to find the path of least resistance. Do not travel through a road where water is more than 4 inches deep.  A car can be swept away easily.

Southern & Central Arizona

In Southern and Central Arizona – 2014 will be remembered as the “Monsoon of the Century”. All future monsoon activity will be measured in terms of 2014. There were 3 major hurricanes that effected the weather in the southern half of the state. This caused a deluge and many towns and neighborhoods suffered tremendous flooding damage due to flash floods, hurricane wind, broken canals, and water that had no where to go. Many long-time residents have never seen a deluge like we have seen this year. Sky Harbor Airport had record rainfall of 1.59 inches and has exceeded the all-time record set back in 1903.

Why You Should Select Steel Instead Of Wood For Your New Home Construction

Posted by On

Steel vs. Wood

Steel Home Construction

steel home construction

Soldier’s Pass Sedona Arizona

 

This steel home construction has been under construction on the street that I take to get to my house. Up until recently, I have been watching them continue to work on the foundation. Months and months of digging out solid rock to form this foundation.  Then within weeks, the framing started to go up. Low and behold, it was all steel.  The picture above is the second story. The second story floor is even metal.

I have only seen two or three other homes being built that were steel construction. Of course, these homes are in the multi-million dollar range.  The house right next to this one was built for $3.4 million.

Have you ever wondered why some homes are now using steel in the construction rather than wood framing?  My first thought is that when you are building a high end home you might as well spend the money on the best material. Right?

What Is The Cost Steel vs. Wood?

I read some research that states that a DIY site did. They built 3 separate walls 10 feet long, 8 feet high with 3 electrical boxes and drywall on both side. Materials were purchased at Home Depot. Their conclusion was this:

  • Wood framed wall with nails: Total cost = $102.08
  • Wood framed wall with screws: Total cost = $103.54
  • Wall framed with steel studs: Total cost = $114.37

Roughly the cost is a little over 10% higher.

What Are The Benefits?

As I review some of these benefits, your area may not even fit some of the weather profile. We are assuming the steel home is properly constructed.

  • Steel is eco-friendly – made completely with recyclable material
  • Termites can’t eat steel. Pests won’t nest. Rats can’t chew through it!
  • Steel is safe from mold and mildew.
  • Earthquake resistant to seismic zone 4. Great for California
  • Strong enough to remain standing during 150 mph winds.
  • With a steel roof, can handle much more snow with out collapse of the roof.
  • Resists fire!
  • Steel framing is lighter and stronger than wood and it will last…

 

steel home constructoin

 

This steel home construction is going to be a top luxury home. Price of materials and quality does not matter in a home like this. The view alone is priceless. The average price of all the homes in Soldier’s Pass is over $1.4 million with many homes going over 2 or 3 million. There at least a handful of homes that are $3 to $4 million each. Soldier’s Pass is a special area. 

However, there are those builders who will tell you that the price per square foot with steel is less that of a conventional framed home. Do your homework. You may be better off with steel home construction.

Western Hills – A Sub-division of West Sedona Arizona 86336

June western hills marketIf you travel north from State Route (SR) 89A onto Rodeo Road and start heading up the hill, you will reach Western Hills sub-division, Sedona Arizona. What you will notice first are Crimson Red Rocks of Capital Butte and Thunder Mountain. Yes, this is the same Thunder Mountain that Walt Disney named his famous roller coaster ride after. Disney had a home not far from Western Hills. Sedona was a favorite get-away of his. June Market Western hIlls real estate for sale
 Off in the northwest, you might gaze upon Chimney Rock, but be careful not to take your eyes off the road!  It is easy to do with these beautiful views.  In the northeast, you can’t help but see Coffeepot Rock.  There are many homes with views of Sedona looking to the east. This area is elevated from SR 89A. It provides views that are not available from the main highway passing through Sedona business district.

Three Minutes to Shopping – Restaurants – Medical 

Another reason this area is a favorite among residents and buyers alike is that the Western Hills sub-division is close to the business district.  At the bottom of the hill is the Safeway shopping center and numerous restaurants close by.  You will find an Urgent Care as well as other medical facilities and professional offices within another four minutes of the intersection of Rodeo Rd and SR 89A.

Close To Hiking Trails

Western Hills backs right up to forest. There are many trails right above those homes. The Stupa and trails leading to Sugarloaf Mountain are close by and easy to access. I have been up to Sugarloaf and there is an amazing view of the landscape above and below. It is not a difficult hike but will clear your head and allow you to enjoy the reason you moved here in the first place!
