Cornville Arizona 86325 Homes For-Sale

Market Report March 14, 2016

March 16 Cornville Homes for sale

MARCH CORNVILLE HOMES – 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 86325 which includes the community of Page Springs, 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.

The Cornville area is also 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.

The March Cornville Homes Market Report will highlight Zip Code 86325.

Check the interactive charts below.  These charts are always up-to-date with a Wi-Fi or Internet connection. 

The report analysis in March for Cornville homes continues to see the DOM (days on market) moving upward since summer of 2015. However, three of the four quartiles are slowing down with the bottom quartile decreasing slightly. We are currently in the ‘on-season’ and should show improved sales activity. The inventory levels have been decreasing since the same time period of last year, which is providing a neutral push on the Market. Historically many sellers start preparing their home for sale this time of year. So inventory levels may increase in April.  There is one less house on the market than in February. 

Overall, buyers may find some reasonable areas of selection in the top quartile, but the other three quartiles are still in the seller advantage range. Though the MAI is dropping. Remember that though it is mostly a seller’s market advantage, there may properties that present a better sales position based on the motivation and willingness of the seller to negotiate.  This market is basically in a neutral push. Prices and inventory are holding steady however the DOM (Days On Market) are moving upward causing the MAI to show a downward trend. 

One note: The Luxury Market for Cornville currently sits at a price point of $549,000 and above. 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.

Sedona Real Estate In the Spring ~ Picture Time

Posted by On

Sedona Real Estate

Spring In Sedona Arizona 86336

Say It With Pictures!

Sedona real estate is enhanced by the blooming of flowers and cactus in the Spring. It is even better when there is plenty of rain that soaks the winter ground and readies the seeds of wildflowers.  We do have a lot of green trees all year long but to see the wildflowers enhancing the landscape with their beautiful color is something special to see.

Generally, you have to give loving attention to cactus.  There is a  chance of too much water and sometimes a freeze can take it’s toll.

This Spring, like last year, started early.  By the first week of February the weather had changed. We can always expect a cold snap here or there. But by the first week of April, those conditions in most seasons, have passed.

Sedona Arizona 86336 Homes For-Sale

Report 3/14/16

Sedona AZ Homes for sale Market Profile

First of all, as you research Sedona homes for-sale, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”.  See the definition of Market Action Index  (MAI) above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

Sedona 86336 is the heart of Sedona. There are two zip codes 86336 and 86351. These Market Reports will be highlight 86336. In this zipcode, you will find the majority of the shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. It also includes a couple of 5 star resorts and the camping areas and mountain style living in the Oak Creek area heading toward Flagstaff. Sedona 86336 is basically areas such as the Chapel area, Uptown, West Sedona, the airport area and Red Rock Loop.

MARCH SEDONA REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

Unlike in February, when the prices were moving up and the inventory was lower, March is showing a different trend.  The Market Action Index is showing a strong downward trend. The Median Price is starting to soften in the top 2 quartiles even though the bottom 2 quartiles are showing a slight upward trend. More of the weighted average is in the upper quartiles. This is one of the reasons I compare all 4 quartiles.   

As stated above, each quartile in The Market Action Index has shown a decrease. The top and bottom quartiles have dropped about 3 points each, while the 2 middle quartiles have dropped 7 points respectively.  This indicates that the market is moving closer to the advantage of the buyer in the bottom half of the Sedona 86336 market. Whereas the top half of the market shows a heavy advantage toward the buyer.  If you are a serious buyer, now is the time to purchase a home.

Generally the market conditions will become more active as it pushes into Spring. March and April seem to be the months that sellers put their homes on market and buyers start looking. Looking at the inventory which also affects the MAI, there are 15% more homes on market.  The only sector that has shown a decrease is homes priced under $399,999. See all the stats associated with each blue market link below the “Characteristics per Quartile Chart.

Sedona homes for sale in the bottom 2 quartiles are showing signs that Days On Market DOM are leveling off and slightly falling which could indicate those segments are becoming more active.

Looking to the future: The last 2 summers have seen a similar trend in the fall of DOM in all segments.  This would indicate that the market is most active in purchases April, May, and early June.  Our schools recess for the summer break in mid May.  

If you are considering a purchase, you should consider your options now.

Report 3/14/16

Cottonwood AZ 86336 Homes for saleThese 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.

Cottonwood Arizona 86325 is a city, about a half hour south of Sedona. It is located off highway 260.   Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center.  There are many medical offices around the hospital that provide all the services you might need. Go to LifeInSedona.com and select Cottonwood for more information.

Since April of 2015 as some markets became much more soft, Cottonwood has been moving in an upward trend and continued to strenghten.  As of January 2016, the Market Action Index (MAI) is climbing sharply.

Another indicator shows that inventory is down from January. Normally sellers tend to wait until Spring to start a new listing. So right now it is a push. Inventory could rise by April. Because the inventory is still being depleted and prices are still moving higher which has  positive indications for the market.  Overall, Days On Market (DOM) are down as well.  So right now, the MAI is showing an upward push.  This is basically a hot market. When you have a 39.1 MAI you have a strong sellers market. It has dropped a little from January but the indicators are showing strong trends upward. The seller is in the driver’s seat with most homes.

The Characteristics per Quartile show the MAI at 33 for the top quartile while the other 3 quartiles range from 40 to close to the 60 point mark.  Remember that a MAI of 30 is the point of equilibrium between a buyer or seller market. 60 is what you see in the hot markets of Northern California.

The homes in the Cottonwood area are priced more competitively than Sedona. You get more home and property for the price.  Also it is an easy drive to Sedona to enjoy the beauty of that area.

Sedona Arizona 86351 Homes For Sale

Report 2/22/16

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.

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.

These 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 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.

The Village of Oak Creek & Big Park market has seen the DOM (days on market) moving upward for the past few months. This trend continues in February. However, the inventory levels are still at a low level which is providing a neutral push on the Market. In Sedona 86351 which is basically areas east of Bell Rock, prices have been holding the line for several months.  

Check the interactive charts below.  These charts are always current and  up-to-date with a Wi-Fi or Internet Connection. 

The Market Action Index is showing a strong downward trend, but pricing has been relatively stable. If the inventory continues to grow relative to demand, there is likely to be downward pressure on pricing. The top Quartile spiked upward but is back at the level it was at in the beginning of January. It is right around 30 but trending downward currently.  The bottom quartile has taken a steep downward trend since the beginning of February. It is still above 30 but appears that it will continue downward into March giving buyers a better opportunity to make a deal. We need to monitor this area.

Though the trend for the bottom quartile shows inventory decreasing with stable pricing, the average days on market are moving up faster than the other quartiles and this is a good indicator of why the MAI has dropped so fast. 

Overall, buyers may find some reasonable areas of selection in the top and Bottom Quartiles.But it is no means a strong Buyer’s Advantage. Right now, those two quartiles will continue to sell based on who is more determined to negotiate, the seller or the buyer.

One note: The Luxury Market has a new low price point of $731,000 for all of Sedona.  This price point normally averages closer to $1 million. 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.

WEST SEDONA, ARIZONA – Prior to filming this episode, there is a lengthy process of deciding what will go into the show. What areas would the audience like to see or visit. Picking an area that will captivate the audience is only part of the challenge. Other areas such as the participants (e.g. homebuyers), their personality, type of properties, B-roll film, charisma of the host as well as the emphasis on the “Big Reveal” all matter in a successful DIY or HGTV show, like “Vacation House For Free – Sedona Oasis”.

HGTV was very fortunate to get Joshua Lovell to help with this particular episode, “Sedona Oasis”.  Joshua Treescape Landscaping designed and contracted the landscape project.  Joshua is an actual contractor and has built his own home as well as other projects in the Verde Valley.  His projects are built with quality in mind.

It was Joshua that saw that the drainage on the property was a real problem and had to be addressed.  He was the only contractor who had discussed this with HGTV. It was also his idea to come up with the sliding door addition to make it easy to access the backyard paradise that he designed for HGTV.

This is the first in a series of articles “After the Big Reveal”

Sedona 86336 is the heart of Sedona.  There are two zip codes 86336 and 86351.  These Market Reports will be highlight 86336.  In this zipcode, you will find the majority of the shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. It also includes a couple of 5 star resorts and the camping areas and mountain style living in the Oak Creek area heading toward Flagstaff.

As discussed in January, the Sedona market has been stronger than normal for the winter months. This trend continues in February.  In Sedona 86336 which is basically areas such as the Chapel area, Uptown, West Sedona, the airport area and Red Rock Loop, prices are continuing a strong trend upward ($14,000 higher) though inventory remains the same from the report published in January at 163. 

The Market Action Index is showing a strong downward trend, however it has moved up one tenth of a point from the January report.  The top Quartile is continuing to move downward. Last month it was at 25 and this month it is at 24. The 2nd Quartile has moved below 35 dropping to 32 and is trending strongly downward as well.  The bottom two quartiles are still above 35 or higher which is a pretty strong seller market.

Sedona Weather – January 2016 Update

Posted by On

Sedona Weather – January 2016

Sedona weather and precipitation

sedona weather and temperatures

This will be a new monthly feature.  

Many of our clients come to Sedona from out-of-state to enjoy the warmer weather in the winter time. People love the Spring and Fall weather as well. It is a great place to see desert flowers and plants bloom.  Fall provides a myriad of color that you can’t find in other places of the state or for that matter the Southwest. We also have milder Summer weather conditions because the altitude is around 4500 feet.  So when Phoenix is 113º, Sedona may only be a dry 98º.

So Lots of my clients who fall in love with Sedona (Red Rock Fever) ask me what the weather is like all year long.  So providing up to the minute weather data as well as almanac local weather history is something that many like to see.

We have a weather statsedona weather station ion right in our backyard.  It can be monitored very easily. The Soldiers Pass area, where we live is a little more sheltered and seems to be slightly cooler than surrounding areas. But overall you will get a pretty accurate idea of what the weather is like every month of the year.  The charts go back 6 years prior to this year.  There is also a historic monthly averages chart as well. As well as a chart that indicates weather extremes, averages, and an overall climactic view.  It will certainly give you a much better idea of what to expect than just looking at a monthly average chart.

If you prefer more information. please go to http://sperryr.com/sedona-weather/  for detailed information and also current videos of weather phenomena.

January 2016

January is usually our coldest month of the year.  It is a time where you will find our lowest temperatures and we may even get a nice amount of snow.  This year was no exception though January was not quite as cold as December 2015 was.  December was an unusually cold month and generally mirrored the conditions we usually get in January. This January, we had a lot of snow (4.50 in.) and a good amount of rain.  By the end of the month the junipers were in full bloom with “berry dust”. As the wind hits the trees, it almost appears that the tree is on fire. The dust is a golden color and it swirls off the trees like a plume of smoke.

Most of January (26 days) the lows usually right before dawn, were below freezing, but even in January the temps got up to an average of 53º which is sweater temp. There were 7 days above 60º and 17 days were above 55º.  Last year our warmest day was 70º.  Pretty nice for January!

Here is an example of what the snow can look like.  For those of you who are tired of snow … this snow does not last long. Usually most if not all is gone by the next day.  Because it is so dry, much of the snow evaporates directly into the atmosphere.  On occasion, we may have a day that does not allow the snow to melt completely.

Sedona Snow Moon …Why?

Posted by On

Sedona Snow MoonSedona Snow Moon

The Sedona Snow Moon …Twice a year, right before Spring and right before Fall, the sun and moon start to switch places. It is a more rapid change than when the sun and moon are cresting during winter and summer. 

Snow piles even higher in February, giving this moon its most common name. Among tribes that used this name for the January moon, the February moon was called the Hunger Moon due to the challenging hunting conditions. Of course, snow does not pile any time of the year in Sedona!

In fact, it is so warm that the trees are already blooming and leaves are coming in! Right now it is 70º with a high of 74º expected!

Customer are always asking about our weather here in Sedona.  Some have the misconception that it is very similar to Phoenix. So I decided I am going to do a weather recap monthly summerizing the weather conditions for the month before. We have a weather station right in our back backyard and have already built up 5 years of statistics.  So, why not?  !!  see more at http://sperryr.com/sedona-weather/ .

He was at the Grand Canyon and was going to continue south toward Sedona when urgent business interrupted his trip.

Snow In Sedona ~ What To Expect From Mother Nature and Snow Diamonds

Posted by On

Sedona Winter Weather

February 1, 2016 – Three Plus Inches of Snow

February 2, 2016 – Snow Diamonds

When the sun comes up normally in Sedona, the snow starts melting immediately. But because the temperature was 19º, the snow was firm and in no danger of melting at that moment.  The sun is at a low angle as it hits the snow and creates a refraction on the ice particles which mimics the brilliant shimmer of a diamond.  Unfortunately, the camera lens does not pick up the shimmer quite the same as your eye does.  I must have seen hundreds of ‘diamonds’ shimmering on that small surface that the camera was focused on.  Fortunately, you can see some of the ‘diamonds’ when the light hits at the right angle.

Same Day – Mother Nature’s Jewelry

We are very lucky to have mild seasons.  Yes, we get a warm summer and a cool winter.  But we do not get the extremes that many areas of the country get.  We can get snow, but it does not paralyze our city.  We don’t need snow plows. Occasionally we may have to dump some volcanic ash on the main roadway to make sure that cars have traction.  This is a rare occurrence.

West Sedona Arizona 86336

A Unique Gated Community 

Sedona Townhouse for sale

Cottages At Coffeepot Are Maintained With Your Safety & Aesthetics in Mind

Coffeepot Cottages townhomes Soldiers Pass West Sedona
The Cottages At Coffeepot West Sedona is a community for those who want a lock and go lifestyle. The community has a full-time grounds keeper who maintains the front landscaping of each home.  There is only one way in and one way out and it has a security gate to maintain your privacy.  The Cottages are very safe. Because they sit over a mile off the main highway (89A) and are tucked in at the foot of the forest preserve, there is little traffic that is not accounted for.

Designed For Low Maintenance and Relaxation

There are 34 homes and generally 10-12 full-time residents who live in the Cottages while other residents travel to homes based on the season.  Some spend summers here and others spend their winter months in this community.

Some of the unique features that the Cottages has for the residents, is a heated swimming pool that is available from May through October.  The pool area sits higher than most of the luxury town homes and has a great view of the surrounding red rocks.  Straddling one of the famous rocks in Sedona. ..Coffeepot Rock, the pool is located right below. From the main street of the 89A, it looks just like the old percolator coffee pot, but as you move around the rock, it can take on another appearance of  a “Standing Eagle” a name given to the rock by the Native Americans who inhabit the area.

Besides the pool, you can play a set of tennis anytime you choose at the tennis courts located right below the pool area.  Anytime you decide you want some fresh air and a nature walk, there are trails by Coffeepot that lead to Boynton Canyon to the west and Jordan Park to the east.  The Seven Pools and Devil’s Kitchen are a ten minute walk right outside of the community.  There are Jeep trails also that you can take to get to those features. Just make sure you have a narrow rock climbing vehicle to get you back there!

Coffeepot rock
You enter the community from the top of the hill and the street lights meet the dark sky requirements.  These monuments throw a soft light down onto the pavement and each townhome has one or more in front of their home.

As you can see, there is green grass where you might expect rocks and desert plants.  Most of the community has grass in front of the town homes. However, the HOA is considering modernizing the landscaping in increments as needed to bring a fresh young look to the complex.

Sedona townhouses for sale

The picture above is looking down from Coffeepot Rock. There are 34 units.  Two of these units sit on two lots. Most of these luxury town homes are two and three units to a building. Each unit has some sort of courtyard in the front and a backyard garden area. Many units have built in BBQs and all have a slab patio front and back.  About half of the units back up to forest with a direct view of Coffeepot Rock.  Those units that sit on the east side of the street have a view of Coffeepot Rock from the front of the town house.

The Cottages At Coffeepot Architecture Is Timeless & Built To Last 

The architect is a prominent local resident who builds a quality home that usually remains pretty timeless. Don Woods has designed more than 200 local homes including Junipine Resort in Oak Creek Canyon to Heartline Cafe and the Sedona Racquet Club according to Sedona Monthly Magazine. This article was back in 2006. The builder is still active in the community.  He is Phil Morris.  Currently he has a multi-million dollar project about 3 minutes from the Cottages located right on Soldier’s Pass. Again, Phil Morris provides a quality product that a home owner can be proud of.

The Soldier’s Pass area of Sedona is one of the more pricey areas in Sedona. The average home price in Soldier Pass right now is over $1,650,000.  On the other hand, The Cottages At Coffeepot which sit on some prime property at the very end of Soldier’s Pass.

Just 4 Minutes Away….

 

 The Soldier’s Pass Location Is 4 Minutes To Shopping & Dining

The location is far enough away from main highway traffic to relish the quiet solitude of nature.  Surrounded by pine and juniper trees, your Cottage is nestled deep into nature yet you can enjoy the peace of mind knowing you are located in a gated community that looks after it’s own.  

A recent study has shown that living within a mile of a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s increases the value of your home. The Whole Foods of Sedona is right at the beginning of Soldiers Pass just 3 minutes away.  

Medical & Professional Services Are Just 4 Minutes Away

A question often asked is “How far are the medical facilities located?”  The intersection of Soldier’s Pass & SR 89A is the start of all the businesses located in Sedona.  Besides the Whole Foods at that corner, there are two banks, restaurants and professional services which include, doctors offices, eye care, dentist and lawyer’s offices as well as other professional services. Within 5 minutes of that corner are all the services you may possibly need.  If you need any specific questions answered please reach out to me through my cell phone or email.

Marriott Courtyard Coming to Sedona ~ July

Posted by On

Marriott Courtyard Sedona

Located in West Sedona

Opening July 2016 

West Sedona Real Estate update

West Sedona Arizona is finally getting a Marriott Courtyard.  It was the one brand missing in this city filled with 5 star resorts, hotels, motels and vacation timeshare properties.  This is a community that has a little more than10,000 residents yet swells to 50,000 on any given day.  When a small resort community can get 4.5 million guests from all over the world, we should have a Marriott as another option for these guests.

For many of us, we may tend to pick a certain chain or brand to rest our weary heads.  Now West Sedona can proudly say we have a Marriott Courtyard to add to guest accommodations.

This Courtyard is being built across the street from the Sedona Red Rock High School on the west end of town.  It should have some awesome views of the red rocks right out of the front of the hotel. You will be able to see Capital Butte, Thunder Mountain and Coffeepot Rock. You will also being looking north to Boynton Canyon where there are Hopi  Ruins that you can explore.

The Marriott Courtyard West Sedona appears to sit back far enough off the main road to minimize road noise. Usually, the traffic on this side of town thins out as you move toward Cottonwood. There is usually more traffic as you move east toward Uptown Sedona and the famous “Y” which is the intersection of Highway 89A and the 179. A roundabout has since replaced the “Y”, but that intersection has kept the moniker.

There is a Hilton, Hyatt, 5 star resorts such as Enchantment and L’Auberge de Sedona, so I say why not a Marriott.  The largest hotel chain in the word with the acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide.

Here is the link to the Marriott website that features the Courtyard Sedona.

A Realtor’s Job Is To Help Fulfill A Customer’s Special Needs

A Realtor’s Job is To Help Fulfill Our Customer’s Needs

As Realtors, our job is to help customers with their real estate needs. What about those people who may have particular needs. How may we help them? Fortunately, there are experts and professionals that can help people make their home purchase more acceptable to every family member.

One of these particular needs is helping those families with relatives who have Autism. According to the Autusm Society, about 1% of the world population has an autism spectrum disorder. It is estimated that 1 baby born of every 68 births in the United States has Autism. It has also been on the rise increasing 6% to 15% a year from 2002 to 2010.

At some point, Realtors® will be dealing with a family who may have a child or sibling with Autism. I do everything I can to point my customers in a direction that will help them make the right decision based on their needs. This fits those parameters.

Below you will read a blog from Karen Fiddler that may help point you in the right direction.

Here is another blog that helps explain more about home decorating and what you can do to make the environment of your home more pleasing to a person who is Autistic. One of the key factors to remember is that every person has different needs to help them with their Autism. It is up to family mambers to help decide what specific requirements will work best for your situation.

Home Design For Autistic Families


 

This week was a rewarding one. For the first time, I had a very special family with very special needs. One of the children has severe autism and the youngest seems to be exhibiting similar signs. For families dealing with autistic children, the home environment is very important.

As we all know, children in particular need to feel safe and secure at home. This is especially true for special needs children who can see the world as a scary place with many uncertainties.

This family had done it’s research. They have worked closely with their therapist and other experts to determine what the home environment should be. One of the steps they took was to consult with a home remodeler who specializes in designing, remodeling and building homes for the Autistic Community.

While this family was not building from scratch, we used all this information to find a home that the children could love and in which they could thrive.

I was motivated to learn more about Home Builders who specialize in building homes for people with Autism. In my research, I found a company locally who does just this. Autism Home Design uses a specific process to ensure that the home is a customized solution for that family.

During this process, they gather all the information available and do a detailed assessment. This includes not only the person affected with Autism, but the family as a whole and it’s unique dynamic. They they design a home to suit these needs.

One of the things I they talk about is how to present the design to the child. Children with Autism do not like change. So Autism Home Design uses specialized social “stories” and visual aids to help the child become a part of the solution and gain an understanding of the changes to come.

Finally, they make a point to state that they work with the family even after completion. They use professionals to determine if the needs found during the assessment were achieved, and if they need to adjust once the family is in.

This goes long past the traditional home decorating or Feng Shui. Families living with Autism might need entire walls moved or rooms redesigned. Not all families are able to build from scratch, as was the case with my clients, but educating themselves….and me…is helping us find a home which will provide the caring environment for their children and family.

Simply amazing!

Report 1/18/16

search Cottonwood AZ real estate for saleThese 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.

Cottonwood Arizona 86325 is a city, about a half hour south of Sedona. It is located off highway 260.   Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center.  There are many medical offices around the hospital that provide all the services you might need. Go to LifeInSedona.com and select Cottonwood for more information.

Since April of 2015 as some markets became much more soft, Cottonwood has been moving in an upward trend and continued to strenghten.  As of January 2016, the Market Action Index (MAI) is climbing sharply.

Another indicator shows that inventory is lightening up (probably because sellers tend to wait until Spring to start a new listing).  But the inventory is still being depleted and prices are slightly higher which has mildly positive indications for the market.  Days On Market (DOM) are trending upward.  If that trend continues the MAI will level out and move toward a buyers market.  Though at over 10 points above the equilibrium point, this may not have much impact when the market starts to heat up in April.

The Characteristics per Quartile show the MAI at 40 for the highest quartile while the other 3 quartiles are close to the 50 point mark.  Remember that a MAI of 30 is the point of equilibrium between a buyer or seller market.

The homes in the Cottonwood area are priced more competitively than Sedona. You get more home and property for the price.  Also it is an easy drive to Sedona to enjoy the beauty of that area.
