Sedona Condo January Market Report

January Sedona Condo and Townhouse for sale market reports

As you research the Sedona January condo & townhouses for sale and market report, 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 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 Mesa area and Red Rock Loop. Our condos are located in the West Sedona area.


Supply and Demand – Sedona 86336 

Inventory

inventory –The inventory has hit new lows since 2016.  There are only 11 Condos available through all subdivisions and neighborhoods in Sedona proper (86336 zip code). 

Days On Market

Days On Market – The average DOM ranges between 117 to 259. The third quartile (see chart below) shows the smallest number of days on market at 103. 

Bottom Line

As stated in other reports, last month interest rates have been increased by the Fed. However, the Sedona 86336 market is steady right now.  Even though the DOM is high, the inventory is very low. Many buyers are looking for the convenience of lock and go residences that are maintained by associations (HOA). 

Buyer or Seller Market  (MAI)

The Market Action Index is showing a strong seller’s advantage and moving up. Basically, buyers should take note of this and understand that because of the low inventory the seller may not be as willing to make concessions.  However, because the days on market is high across all segments, some sellers may be more motivated to sell.

There are many peaks and valleys that continue until the end of this course.

2017 Sedona Arizona Real Estate Market Forecast

Posted by On

 Sedona Arizona Real Estate Forecast

Sheri Sperry ReMax Sedona & Sellsedona.com

Looking Back Into the Rear View Mirror!

2017 Sedona Real Estate Market forecast

Peering back into 2016, I had my best ever year in the Sedona real estate market. I was busy all year from the very beginning of January! There were a couple of different months where I had five contracts open at once! One thing that alarmed and frustrated me.  I had clients who were ready to go but there was nothing available to show my clients. Little did I know that this theme would carry over into every month for 2016. When something came on market, myself and my clients had to jump on it.

Happy New Year 2017!

 Forecasting The Future For the Sedona Real Estate Market In 2017

What does the Sedona Real Estate Market hold for 2017?

To forecast the future of real estate you might need all the help you can get. As the image above depicts; meditation, working with sound therapy, Chakra tune-ups, saging your space and using that crystal ball may be the only sure fire way to predict the future…..yeah….right!

Optimistic Future

It may seem like I am reading the tea leaves when forecasting the future, but there are the signs that give me insight to market conditions moving into the future.  We know what happened in the past and with the indicators such as our inventory, days on market, median pricing and other factors such as Market Action Index help identify the direction of the future.

I am bullish on America, our economy and the future of real estate for 2017.  I think the stock market is going to continue to rise and reach higher than the 20,000 mark. Smart relaxation of regulations is going to have a positive affect on the business climate and hiring. New businesses will start and have a better chance at success. It is growth across all sectors of business that will fuel the rising real estate market.

Realtor.com Forecast

Realtor.com states that “Millennials (33%) and boomers (30%) will dominate the market.”  Realtor.com also states that “strong local economies and population growth will continue to fuel the nation’s hottest markets.” Phoenix – Mesa – Scottsdale AZ tops the list at number one housing market based on price and    sales gains for 2017. Tucson AZ came in number nine.

The reason I bring the Realtor.com forecast facts up is two fold.

  1. Baby Boomers fuel the Sedona market
  2. Hot markets in the southern part of Arizona (Phoenix & Tucson) also bring buyers up to Sedona

Sedona Second Homes & Low Inventory

There are two themes that I think will continue moving forward in 2017.

1.)  The second home market is very big in Sedona.  All the current homes that I have listings on including a future listing coming to market soon are all empty homes. The buyers of these homes will more than likely be preparing for retirement, retired, or are looking for a vacation home to come to for the weather and beauty of the area. Fifty percent of my buyers are cash.  They are selling other homes or cashing out of the market to buy the home of their retirement dreams.

2.)  Inventory will continue to be less than we have seen in years past. Days On Market (DOM) will continue to be higher than other parts of the United States. Homes well priced will move fast and other homes will sit and drive the DOM up higher.

Comparing January 2016 to December

……………………..January 2016…………………..December 2016

Median Price…….. $725,000………………………..$780,000………..up $55,000

 DOM…………………220………………………………..262………………up 42 days

 Inventory……………163…………………………………134…………..down 29 homes

Insulated & Discretionary

Sedona is slightly insulated from changes in the overall market conditions. It is more of a discretionary market.  Buyers do not rely on mortage rates as much as traditional markets.  In the same tone, sellers don’t have to sell and can hold onto their property longer.

A Cautionary Tale…

Buyers need to understand that they must be ready to role.  They have to have their financing in order to assure an acceptance on an offer.  Otherwise, some other buyer will scoop the home they want right out from under them.  I have a couple of buyers who are chasing the market right now.

As for sellers, the same holds true for them.  Other homes come on market and get snatched up because the price is right. Thier home goes stale because they are not willing to adjust the price to what the market will bare.  This is not 2005. In 2005 , you might be able to wait and get what you want. In today’s market and future Sedona markets, the seller needs to know that the home has to be priced to sell. ….not priced to sit!

Afterword, you decide to cook a nice meal in your well designed efficient kitchen. There is plenty of counter space to cut up vegetables and prepare your meal. Your newer gas range has 4 burners, just like the chefs use to make sure every dish is prepared to your liking. You sit down for a nice meal at your dining table and when your meal is finished you bring your favorite beverage out to the landscaped garden area that is manicured to your liking and enjoy your beverage on the outside patio.

If it is raining, that is OK, because the patio is covered from the elements and can be used year round. Your outdoor lighting is magical and you enjoy the twilight as it slips away.

Cornville ~ December ~ Market Report Homes for sale

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 December Market Information

Cornville AZ 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.

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.

These Market Reports will highlight Single Family Homes in Zip Code 86325.

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

Supply and Demand – Cornville

Median Price

Overall median price (month to month) has continued the upward movement with a $5,499 increase. The median price is trending in a positive direction for all quartiles.

Inventory

Inventory hit bottom at the beginning of July.  Since then, the inventory is continuing on a downward trend. It has dropped 4 more based on current listings. 

Days On Market

The Cornville AZ 86325 DOM (days on market) is mixed. With inventory continuing downward, the DOM is stable right now. 

Market Action Index (MAI)

Right now, the MAI is moving upward rapidly.  Three of the four quartiles are at 45 or above (solid seller zone).  Thirty is the cutoff for seller/buyer advantage. This might be why pricing is showing slight upward movement. If you look at the chart you will see that the peak MAI was July 1st. However, 2 of the 4 Q are at all time highs!  All 4 quartiles are trending in the seller’s zone.

BOTTOM LINE —> Similar to last month, there is not a lot of inventory to choose from. If you find a home you like, you should act on it and make the best possible deal and always seek the advice of a Realtor® such as Sheri Sperry Top ReMax Sedona Realtor.  A lot of people fail to realize that Cornville is a bedroom community of Sedona. It is only 20 minutes away and rarely ever has a traffic issue.

If the trends of DOM and Inventory continue, pricing will be in a much stronger position for the seller. It is already moving in that direction.  

 


Cornville Luxury Market

One note: The Luxury Market for Cornville for current listings, sits at a price point of $599,000 and above (top 10% of available listings). Only five homes are available in this category. 

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president of defines the Luxury Market as the top 10% of sold listings in the previous 6 months for zip codes 86336 and 86351.

Cottonwood Information

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.  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!

The Median Price has increased from $279,450 in November to $299,900. There has been a steady increase since July 2016 in the median price.

Inventory

When you look at the trend lines on the charts below, you will notice that Inventory was at it’s lowest level near May 2016, for all quartiles. The inventory Is rising slowly. Currently, 7 properties are on market more than November. There continues to be 4 listings over $1 million. 

DOM – Days On Market

The Top quartile which has a median price of $525,000 – down from $579,000 is showing an average days on market at 245 which is up 27 from last month. Overall, DOM has increased to 135 from 119 and is showing a strong upward push in both the top and bottom quartiles. The bottom quartile is 29 days higher than last month.

MAI

The Market Action Index MAI for the top tier is below 30 and may have bottomed out at 22 in July. Currently it is above 26.  This has stabilized. In contrast the MAI for the 3 other quartiles are mixed. However, the other 3 quartiles are converging and there has been a strong downward trend in quartiles 2 and 3. 

Seller Zone

Cottonwood is in the seller zone overall and median prices continue to show increases.   Keep your eye on the MAI . The top quartile is the only one in the buyer zone and seems to have stabilized.. The MAI was very high in the summer months and has significantly weakened as the year moved on.  Weakening the seller position. 

 

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.

BOTTOM LINE:  

Buyers may find some relief in the top quartile.  The homes in the top range, do not compete well with the more desireable location of Sedona. This may be the reason that this zone is not moving well. There may be some deals to be had in the other 3 quartiles as well.  The median price of homes may be causing some of the flux in the other indices because of the stronger position of median price, over the last few months.  This may cause the median price to weaken going forward.

Dec '16 ~ Big Park

Dec ’16 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 November 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.

Check the interactive charts below.  

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

SEDONA 86351 – Village of Oak Creek / Big Park ~ October ’16 REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI is continues to show a strong upward push in all quartiles.  The entire index has risen 2 points since October (1.3 in November). Each quartile has moved 3-5 points. 

Inventory

Inventory has dropped dramatically in the last 6 weeks.  There are 26 less homes on market. Homes priced right are moving fast and not being replaced on the market as fast as they are going off the market. 

Days On Market (DOM)

The properties in VOC – Big Park have been on the market for an average of 228 days.  Less inventory causes the DOM to go up. Generally, the homes that are priced right will go into contract much faster causing the DOM to rise on homes that have been sitting. 

Bottom Line

Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek has very low inventory.  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. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) is at $949,000. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares.

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. To learn more about these market reports please visit the Learning Center or visit Market Stats on my website.

Sedona Arizona 86336 Homes For-Sale

Report 12/26/16

Sedona December Market Report

As you research the Sedona December 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 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 Mesa area and Red Rock Loop.


Supply and Demand – Sedona 86336 

Inventory

inventory –The inventory has hit new lows for the year.   There are 40 less homes on market since early November. In the first half of the year, there was little movement in the luxury market; however, since September, 8 more homes have been sold. One more home sold in November. This is good news for the Luxury market. 

Days On Market

Days On Market – Trends are moving significantly upward. In the last 6 weeks, the DOM across all quartiles has moved up an average of 37 days! 

Bottom Line

As stated last month interest rates have been increased by the Fed. However, the Sedona 86336 market is steady right now.  There may be some deals to be had because DOM is higher across all quartiles.  One reason that the DOM is showing an increase is because the homes that are selling fast with a lower DOM are pushing the average up on homes that have been sitting on the market for a much longer time.  This could mean that those sellers are ready to deal to get their homes in to contract.  It should be noted that because these homes have been sitting longer, does not mean that a seller is more motivated to sell. 

Buyer or Seller Market ? (MAI)

The Market Action Index has maintained a MAI of 27.  However the individual quartiles are all showing an upward push from November. Even the Luxury quartile, which is in the Buyer’s Advantage range, has shown upward movement from 24 to an index of 26. The other 3 quartiles are solidly in the seller zone, 

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. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) is at $1,500,000. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares.

How Sedona Got It’s Name…

Sedona Arizona History - photo courtesy of Tom McKinnon

T.C, & Sedona Schnebly – courtesy Tom McKinnon

Oak Creek – A Beautiful Area To Settle

From the moment I decided to move to Sedona and the Verde Valley, I have been intrigued with the history of the entire area. Of course, As you visit historical sites in and around the city, the fascination and intrigue continues to grow.  Naturally, I wanted to find out how Sedona got it’s name.  History shows that there were around 15 families that settled in this area. It wasn’t until 1889 that the General Land Office decided to send surveyors out to establish the boundaries of the homestead and township and range lines. Oak Creek provided the water to irrigate the land through a series of canals.  Some of those canals are still active today, and are visible around the property that T.C. homesteaded.  If you have visited Sedona and spent some time at Oak Creek,  you know why settlers choose to this area. One of my favorite spots is the Tlaquepaque area.

T.C.Schnebly’s brother Ellsworth was told to move to Arizona for health reasons.  He convinced T.C. (Theodore Carl) to come out from Missouri to settle in this area. T.C. was a business man and set up a two story hotel and general store for the area’s residents.  The area that he settled in is Tlaquepaque and the resort of Los Abrigados.

As the township developed – T.C. decided it was time to have regular mail service for the area settlers.  He submitted names of Oak Creek Crossing and Schnebly Station.  However the Postmaster General at the time, was partial to one word names for the postmarks.  So Ellsworth suggested to T.C. that he should consider submitting his wife’s name for the postmark!

Sedona Name Trivia 

I know that many of you may think that the name Sedona might be of Native American or Spanish origin, but it is not! When Sedona was born in February 24, 1877, her mother Amanda Miller “just thought up the name”.  Amanda thought it sounded “pretty”.

6000 Luminarias 

It will be the 44th celebration of the “Festival of Lights” in Tlaquepaque on Dec 10th.  Come and spend the whole day!  The activities will delight old and young alike. The lighting of 6000 luminarias will take place at 5:00 PM sharp. This is something to see. Anyone can sponsor and present a luminaria on behalf of a special person who may be fighting sickness.  It is a great way to start this holiday season of giving.

A Metamorphosis

You will be amazed at the effect of thousands of luminarias lining walkways and courtyards. The subtle glow of light creates a metamorphosis that warms the area.

The Signature Element of the Village – The Sycamores

The sycamore trees that entwine the buildings within the village are a sight in and of themselves.  Now imagine those same trees wrapped in thousands of tiny lights adding to the joy of the Christmas season.

Park In Uptown

It is highly recommended to park in one of the public parking lots in Uptown and taking the free shuttle to Tlaquepaque. Local residents as well as visitors come from all over to see this spectacular Christmas event.

Tlaquepaque North

Tlaquepaque North is less than a year old and you would think it had been around for decades.  This Arts and Crafts Village with 16 Galleries to shop in was designed to look old. The original village on the south side of the street was built around the Giant Sycamores to fulfill a promise.  Local artisans were used to build the plaza and it was built without major plans.  Truckloads of Mexican artifacts were brought up from Mexico to incorporate into the buildings. Old doors, iron gates and other iron works, old carts and wagon wheels. You will see all of this within the walls of this village.  At Christmas time, it is transformed into Christmas village that you would find in the heart of Mexico.

Fall Color Sedona Style! Thanksgiving Color is Here

Fall Color Sedona Style!

The Cottages At CoffeePot

Soldiers Pass

West Sedona Arizona

ThanksGiving Color

Fall color is generally very prevalent during the Thanksgiving Season. Sedona gets all 4 seasons. The big difference from other areas of the country is that the weather is milder during the Winter and Summer months.

Sedona gets “polite” snow. It does not overstay it’s welcome. Snow usually melts within a day. As for the color change, you can see it from mid October (Flagstaff area) through the third week of November (or later) in Sedona. For the entire year, we have had no more than 1 day with a high that did not get above freezing temps.  Days below 40º, number 4-5 and less than 30 days are below 50º.

During the summer months – temps are usually in the low to mid 90’s and because humidity is very low even during monsoon, there is not much heat discomfort.

Sedona & northern Arizona brings many people from near and far to see the change of seasons.  From the Aspen Groves in Flagstaff to the trees lining Oak Creek Canyon to the city area of Sedona, people get to experience northern Arizona fall color for many weeks.

Our temperatures are fairly mild during the day.  This allows visitors a chance to enjoy the fall color for a longer period than other areas. It isn’t until around Thanksgiving that Sedona will experience sweater weather on a regular basis.

For at least the last three years, Autumn has been visible through out the area.  While many other areas of the country have trees without leaves, Sedona is getting into the spirit of the holiday season!

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

Supply and Demand – Cornville

Median Price

The overall median price (month to month) has moved sharply upward with a $27,100 increase or 7% .The median price is trending in a positive direction for all quartiles except the top quartile which showed a peak in October and has stabilized for now. 

Inventory

The inventory hit bottom at the beginning of July.  Since then, the inventory is continuing on a downward trend. 

Days On Market

The Cornville AZ 86325 DOM (days on market) continues to trend upward. With inventory coming down. the DOM is starting to follow suit. Month to month, it has dropped 5 days. It remains to be seen if this trend will continue. 

Market Action Index (MAI)

Right now, the MAI is moving upward rapidly.  Three of the four quartiles are at 40 or above (solid seller zone).  Thirty is the cutoff for seller/buyer advantage. This might be why pricing is showing slight upward movement. If you look at the chart you will see that the peak MAI was July 1st.  All 4 quartiles are trending up and the overall market continues to move toward the seller’s zone. It is only .5 off. 

BOTTOM LINE —> Similar to last month, there is not a lot of inventory to choose from. If you find a home you like, you should act on it and make the best possible deal and always seek the advice of a Realtor® such as Sheri Sperry Top ReMax Sedona Realtor.  A lot of people fail to realize that Cornville is a bedroom community of Sedona. It is only 20 minutes away and rarely ever has a traffic issue.

If the trends of DOM and Inventory continue, pricing will be in a much stronger position for the seller. It is already moving in that direction.

One note: The Luxury Market for Cornville currently sits at a price point of $599,000 and above. Only five homes are available in this category. 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.

A Look Back At Coffeepot Rock’s Different Faces & The Cottages At Coffeepot

Coffeepot Rock – Different Faces – Different Times

As Coffeepot Rock is viewed from many different angles, it will take on a different look. It may appear to be a different rock.
Can you see the different faces?

Monsoon – Magic Time At the Coffeepot Cottages

Coffeepot Rock in 1962 by my husband’s uncle who was visiting from Chicago. It is prior to sub-division development (Sedona 1-2) in this area. Most of the roads were dirt.

This is an old movie set (see picture below) from “Johnny Guitar” (1954) starring Joan Crawford and Sterling Hayden.

We have the original photo (above) and have scanned it and improved the color quality through photo apps.

By accident, I found the picture above on the internet being offered for sale as a postcard! Imagine my surprise!

NOV ’16 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 November 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.

Sedona Arizona 86336 Homes For-Sale

Report 11/07/16

Sedona November Real Estate Market

sedona market report and homes for sale

First of all, as you research the Sedona October real estate market 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 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 Mesa area and Red Rock Loop.


SEDONA 86336 ~ November ’16 REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

Buyer or Seller Market ? (MAI)

The Market Action Index has dropped a half point from October. Only the Luxury quartile is in the Buyer’s Advantage range at an index of close to 24. The other 3 quartiles are solidly in the seller zone, though they are trending downward. This is not unexpected this time of year. 

Inventory

inventory – the drop of inventory has slowed to a grinding halt.  There are 21 less homes on market since August but the analysis shows that there is only 1 home added on the MLS (from October) at the point of this “snapshot” of the market (11/12/16).  In the first half of the year, there was little movement in the luxury market; however, since September, 7 more homes have been sold. This is good news for the Luxury market. In fact the top 10% of the market has moved downward by $152,000 because there are less million dollar homes for sale!

Days On Market

Days On Market – DOM is showing mixed results. The trends are moving slowly upward  As we near the end of the Fall selling season, this may be the trend until the 2017 season starts.  

Bottom Line

We just elected a new President and we can expect interest rate increases on the next report in December by the Fed.  However, the Sedona 86336 market is steady right now.  There may be some deals to be had because DOM is higher in the bottom and the 3rd quartile.  However, the MAI is moving lower in the 86336 market and the top 3 quartiles are still well above the cutoff for a Buyer’s market. 

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 $1,498,000 for the top 10% of the market. This is a drop of $2,000 from the previous month .To learn more about these market reports please visit the Learning Center or visit Market Stats on my website.
