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

Coffeepot Cottages
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 other homes based on the season.  Some spend summers here and others spend their winter months in this community.

One of the unique features that residents enjoy at the Cottages 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.  If 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 saleThe picture to the right is looking down from Coffeepot Rock. As mentioned before, 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. Half of the community borders the forest. 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 sit on some prime property at the very end of Soldier’s Pass and offer a more affordable alternative choice of living in a luxury setting.

June Coffeepot Cottages

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.

You can find a number of sites that will provide you with an ‘estimate‘ of what your home is worth.  These sites use public records and algorithms to determine an ‘estimate‘. They must also publish their ‘error rate’ as well. The human factor is left out of the equation in these estimates.

How Coffeepot Rock Got The Name

A lot of the rock formations in Sedona are named after objects that they look like. Cathedra Rock, Thunder Mountain, Snoopy Rock, Chimney Rock and of course, Coffeepot Rock,just to name a few more visible formations. Some of these are iconic symbols for Sedona.

In the wild west, the cowboys on the range, would use a percolating type of coffeepot over their campfire or on their camp stoves to brew coffee. Many of you may recognize the shape that has a glass knob on the lid to detect the color of the coffee as it continues to brew. The pot was made of a tin.

This type of pot was used well into the 1960’s and may still be used today in some homes or for camping.

Native Americans saw a different figure. “Standing Eagle” was the name given to the rock. Look at the top picture which is the entrance to the gated community. Think of an eagle right before the eagle starts to lift from it’s perch and the wings are the rock formations directly behind the main formation where the coffeepot spout is the eagle’s beak,

This was around 9 step process that took five days to complete. The finished surface should last many many years. The last resurfacing lasted 15 years.  The first step was complete prep and patching and an additional drain put in. Then a netting was put down and a black resin placed over it. After that large gravel was set down. Another type of sealant was placed over that gravel.  Then a smaller pea size gravel was laid down with another sealant placed over the smaller gravel. There was a final sealant to adhere and cure the surface. A few days later there was a lime wash to eliminate any stickiness.

September 2017 Cornville Market Report
September 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.

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

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. 

Sellers, we are entering a strong season, so now is the time to get your home on market if you are seriously considering selling your home. I can help you get your home on market quickly because we don everything in house. Call Sheri Sperry for details.

Luxury Market For Sedona

One note: The SEDONA Luxury Market has a price point of $855,000 for the top 10% – 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 last six months, is $490,000. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) is at $565,000 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.

September 2017 COTTONWOOD MARKET HOME CONDITIONS – 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.

To analyze the Cottonwood AZ Market Report, An understanding of the city is helpful. It is about a half hour south of Sedona and located off highway 260 and the 89A. Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center. This is very appealing to many who need to be near medical facilities, doctors and other professionals. 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. 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.

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. There is about a 2.4 month inventory of homes. We are now entering the Fall selling season and by October the market will probably be stronger than current market. 

Luxury Market of Sedona

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $855,000 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 $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.

Autumn In Sedona – It’s A Wonderful Time of Year!

Posted by On

Happy Autumn!

Autumn Sedona AZ Fall real estate

From My Garden!

Sedona AZ – Autumn – This is my favorite time of year. The weather is perfect! No air conditioning or heating is necessary. You can smell the scent of pine trees early in the morning. As you sit outside, you can enjoy your favorite morning beverage and observe the birds and animals scurrying around gathering their food, nuts and berries, for the winter. The hummingbirds are plentiful as they migrate south for the winter ahead.

I noticed this hummingbird just hovering in the middle of the yard. Ever few seconds, it was stabbing at the air.  As I took a closer look, I could see a swarm of tiny almost imperceptible gnats!  This hummingbird was feasting on a meal. Guess who is next on the menu? !!

Big Park (VOC) Market Report

 

big park voc september market report

September ’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.

The top bracket is up almost 10 months supply down about 1 month. However the bottom tier is only at a 11 week supply. This is definitely in the seller range. About 6.5 to 7.5 months supply of homes is the break for buyer vs. seller advantage.

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI started to trend lower this month. Three of the four brackets are still in the seller zone.  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. There are buyers waiting for homes in West Sedona rather than moving to the Big Park market.  Even though the Big Park area is in a seller range, buyers may be able to negotiate with sellers because of the West Sedona demand. This has not changed from Spring. 

 

Interactive charts below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart

 

Bottom Line

Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek continues to have very low inventory. However, there is a median pricing downward trend. 

 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. Also many sellers can’t find a home to go to so they are not going to sell there home! 

As the market enters the Fall selling period, we could see an upward price push. 

Luxury Market

As of 9/21/17

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $855,000 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 $959,000 for the Village (VOC/BigPark). – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares to the sold market.

The Sedona September Market Report

As you research the Sedona September Market Report and 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 Information

Sedona 86336 is the heart of Sedona. There are two zip codes 86336 and 86351. These Market Reports will highlight 86336. In this zip code, you will find the majority of the shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging.

Median Price

The Median Price is at $849,000.  This is an $80,000 increase across all quartiles. There was an additional 5 homes priced over $1,000,000. This has pushed the top two quartiles into the seven figure range. I will add that the bottom two quartiles also had major increases in the median price point. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


Inventory

Though the Inventory has shown a slight trend upward during the Spring selling season, the number of available homes have dropped by 50 since the August market report came out. Part of the low inventory is because sellers are not seeing homes they could move into on the market. New homes are being snapped up fast leaving stale inventory on market. If you have no home to go to, why would you risk selling your residence?

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


Days On Market

Days On Market – All quartiles except the bottom quartile are trending up currently.   With little inventory to pick from, all new homes on market are seeing activity and offers are being made. New homes on market 4 weeks ago are gone! The DoM is reflecting the stale listings continuing to rack up DoM. Because there is so little inventory in the most affordable range, homes are selling fast. Currently there are only 4 single family homes below $400,000 in Sedona 86336. Three weeks ago there were zero. There are a total of 5 new homes added to the top two brackets that are affecting the DoM from being higher. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Market Action Index

The Market Action Index is trending downward to. 30 is the break even point between seller vs buyer advantage. It has declined 3.1 points in 4 weeks .  Though the MAI is moving downward, I do not see much of a change for sellers at this time. Fall is almost as active as Spring  The top quartile is in the buyer zone and with new properties added recently, makes this bracket more appealing to buyers. Typically the premium segment of the market takes longer to sell. The other three quartiles are in the seller advantage zone. 

 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

^^^

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 down 50 homes from the last analysis. DoM is mixed and the Market Action Index is showing a downward trend. We have pushed through the height of the Spring selling market and now the summer market. The Fall market should be stronger than what we have seen this summer. Buyers and sellers should seriously evaluate their options now. The Sedona real estate market should continue to show strength for the seller through September and October and into mid November.

 

Luxury Market

As of 9/21/17

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 has dropped from $930,000 and is at $855,000 for the top 10% of the market. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) has moved higher to $1,795,000. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares.

Report 8/21/17
Cornville – Page Springs – Verde Santa Fe – Market Report

 

June 2017 Cornville

August 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.

Days On Market (DoM)

The Days on Market (DoM) are down an additional 2 weeks from June. The overall DoM is at 4.7 months which is in the Seller zone. The lowest 2 tiers are at 63 days which is pretty low. That means from the day a listing hits the market to the day it is closed is only 63 days. Most loans take 30 days with nothing going wrong!

If you are interested in a value priced home don’t wait to make an offer!  It won’t be there if you wait.

The Market Action Index – The MAI continues to show a strong seller market. However, it has slipped slightly from 37.2 (overall) to 35.9.

Large Chart

 

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 $930,000 for the top 10% – 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 last six months, is $490,000. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) is at $565,000 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.

August Cottonwood Market Conditions AZ 86326

August 2017 COTTONWOOD MARKET HOME CONDITIONS – 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.

To analyze the Cottonwood AZ Market Report, An understanding of the city is helpful. It is about a half hour south of Sedona and located off highway 260 and the 89A. Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center. This is very appealing to many who need to be near medical facilities, doctors and other professionals. 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. 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.

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. There is about a 3 month inventory of homes. We will be entering the Fall selling season in about a month and by October the market will probably be stronger than current market.

Luxury Market of Sedona

August ’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.

Days On Market (DoM)

The properties in VOC – Big Park and Pine Valley have been on the market for an average of 190 DoM. Up over 6 weeks from June. Overall there is a little over 6.3 month supply of homes on market. The top bracket is up almost 17 weeks or 11 months supply. However the bootom tier is only at a 13 week supply. This is definitely in the seller range. 

 

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 31.4.  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. There are buyers waiting for homes in West Sedona rather than moving to the Big Park market.  Even though the Big Park area is in a seller range, buyers may be able to negotiate with sellers because of the West Sedona demand. 

 

Interactive charts below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart

 

Bottom Line

The Market Action Index is trending higher, showing the market is comfortably 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. 

As the market enters the Fall selling period, we could see even more of an upward price push. 

Luxury Market

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $930,000 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 $995,000 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. The inventory has started to trend downward once again.  Note – a continued downward trend may put an upward pressure on list price. Look at Market Action Index and Days on Market (DoM) to gauge whether buyer interest is keeping up with available supply.

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


Days On Market

Days On Market – Trends are mixed by quartile. With little inventory to pick from, all homes are seeing activity and offers are being made. New homes on market 4 weeks ago are gone! The DoM will come down because of new and old listings are selling. The Luxury Market has added 40 more DoM. The middle two quartiles have decreased by 37 days. The bottom tier is up by 43 days. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Market Action Index

The Market Action Index is mixed. 30 is the break even point between seller vs buyer advantage. It has declined 0.2 in 6 weeks .  If this continues, pricing will continue to be a strong seller advantage.  The top quartile is barely in the buyer zone and has been trending upward since April. Typically the premium segment of the market takes longer to sell. The other three quartiles are in the seller advantage zone. 

 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

^^^

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 down 15 homes, DoM is mixed and the Market Action Index is steady at 30. We have pushed through the height of the Spring selling market and now the summer market. The Fall market should be stronger than what we have seen this summer. Buyers and sellers should seriously evaluate their options now. The Sedona real estate market should continue to show strength for the seller

 

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 $930,000 for the top 10% of the market. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) has moved higher to $1,900,000. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares.

Sedona Hummingbird Festival Held on July 28th – July 30th

Posted by On

Sedona Hummingbird Festival 

Sedona hummingbird festival

The Sedona Hummingbird Festival is held at the end of July, beginning of August. Hummingbirds are coming back from more northern states and are starting to migrate back to the south this time of year and there is usually up to seven different kinds of hummingbirds that gather while preparing for the trip south.  They reach a peak in August in Sedona and little by little they continue on the migration.

Sedona hummingbird festival

One of My Favorite Birds

I have feeders and hummingbird friendly plants all over my garden – front and back.  Even during the winter months, I will see a couple of “regulars” around the yard. But June thru September is when there are five to ten hanging around. Now, are they just passing through? I really don’t know if they are the same birds or not.

Sedona hummingbird festival

Feeders and Nectar

I have feeders in the back and in the front. There are some of these birds that are territorial and they will watch for and scare away other hummingbirds.

Some tricks I have learned to help keep the hummingbirds around:

  • Have at least two different lines of sight for the feeders. This will keep a territorial bird at only one vantage point.
  • Keep the feeders out of the sun. The nectar will be more resistant to fermentation. Change it often. Gage how much is being used daily and only fill up your feeder to that level.
  • Make your own – I use organic raw sugar – 1 to 4 ratio (quarter cup of sugar the rest water) – IMO – The red juice is not healthy and the birds I feed won’t drink it anyway!
  • If you get ants climbing down into the nectar – get a round piece of plastic with a 2 inch diameter and cut a line to the middle. place it on the wire that the feeder hangs on. place a generous amount of vaseline on the surface and the ants won’t be able to pass down the wire.
  • Do your best to clean the feeder with only hot water. Avoid using any detergents or soap. The picky hummers won’t come back to the feeder!

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.
