Reflections On The Real Meaning of Memorial Day

Monday May 29, 2017

Riverside National Cemetery

Ryan Sperry Grounds Crew - Riverside National Cemetery

My Son – Ryan

Riverside National Cemetery

 

Memorial Day – Ah Yes! …The  unofficial start of summer.  It is a long weekend; time to take the a family out on a trip or a picnic or to the beach, lake or mountains.  Some folks will go to the desert or might spend time visiting Sedona Arizona. It can even be a very busy time for Realtors® working with customers search for real estate. Most of us will BBQ hamburgers, and hot dogs.  It is a time to get away, have fun, relax and enjoy the company of others.  

For some there will be no rest or relaxation. Please read on…

Memorial Day….I know that before my son became a Marine in 1998, I looked forward to time off! I did not concentrate as much about what this day really is all about. Once Ryan became a Marine and terrorist attack on September 11th happened, I had a laser focus on anything that pertained to our military as well as our first responders.  I would like to share my personal connection as well as some other interesting facts and history with you.

A Little History

Without getting into too much history, the Federal Government declared Waterloo, New York, the official birthplace of Memorial Day.  It first celebrated the day on May 5, 1866. This was a community wide event.  Businesses closed and the town’s people adorned the graves of soldiers in a similar fashion as we do in the modern era.

The beginnings of Decoration Day, now Memorial Day,  started on a more national push when on May 5th 1868, General James Garfield (later elected our 20th President), gave a speech at Arlington National Cemetery. This was a commemoration of the union soldiers who lost their lives during the civil war. Northern states started recognizing this day, one by one. Many of the Southern states continued to honor confederate soldiers on different days until after World War I.

After WWI, the holiday progressed to honor all Americans who died in all conflicts or wars while serving their country. In 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This established the last Monday in May as a federal holiday. Many people confuse Veteran’s Day with Memorial Day.

Combat Gear

 My Personal Connection

My son Ryan, (pictured above and below) called me (2011)  just to catch up a couple of days before Memorial Day. Part of our conversation centered around his job and Memorial Day.  You see, Ryan lives Memorial Day every day. He has the honor of working at Riverside National Cemetery.  This cemetery is the 3rd largest cemetery managed by the National Cemetery Administration and is the most active (based on internments) since 2000. Ryan thoroughly enjoys his job and the people he works with; all are Veterans and many (like him) are Marines.

See a fabulous aerial video of this National Cemetery here.

Notable Persons Interned

Among the notable persons buried there are five Medal of Honor recipients. I cannot do this list justice so please click on this link (Notable Persons) and cursor down to read about these Heroes. They are many more than I can list here and it is fascinating to read!

 

Reverence 

Ryan participates in the burial of many of our unsung Heroes who have passed on. One thing that really struck me is the reverence that the grounds crew has as they perform their duties.  The military and our Veterans have always had a strong bond.  Anyone who serves their country or their community and lives in harms way, such as our firefighters and peace officers, experienced this same kinship.  They consider each member part of their family. This fellowship is part of the fabric of America.

This crew, treats these fallen Heroes with complete respect from the moment they start digging the grave site.  They are in the background when the services are performed in case a family member needs something.  When there is no one that attends the burial, this crew is there for their comrade.

Respect & Admiration

After my conversation, I have an even greater respect and admiration for these selfless Veterans, who care for our family & friends who have passed on. One of my dear friends has her father buried in Riverside. I know her father’s grave is well taken care of.

God Bless Our Fallen Heroes

I would ask that instead of remembering our fallen Heroes on just one day a year, we take pause and spend a moment every so often to reflect on all those Americans who have served and protected us from the infancy of our country until today. God Bless them..and while we are at it, let’s not forget all those first responders who put their lives on the line everyday for people like you and me.

~ ~ ~

Hold a special place in your heart for those people who tend the National and State cemeteries around the country who live and breath Memorial Day every day of the year…..

Why They Call It A Butterfly Bush…

Posted by On

Our Sedona Weather Affords Us A Variety Of Plants & Flowers

One of My Favorites Is The Butterfly Bush

It is all part of the Sedona Life Style

Sedona Butterfly Bush

Sedona Butterfly Bush

The flowers come in many colors from white to dark purple.  According to the Farmer’s Almanac, butterflies prefer the lavender or mauve color.  The plant is robust to zone 5. It will remain evergreen from zone 8 south.  Sedona is in zone 8b.  As you get into the canyon the weather gets colder and you will probably have to cover the plant in the winter.

The Butterfly Bush provides nectar to butterflies as well as other insects and hummingbirds.  This bush does not support butterfly reproduction and the lifecycle. You need to also plant a “host” plant such as milkweed if you want butterflies to stay.

In Sedona – Blooms Start In April – Hearty By June

There is very little maintenance to these bushes. They will grow tall so prune them back severely. during the late winter early spring. Check with your local nursery for the best time for pruning in your area.

Duality of Work Life Balance…Discover More About Sheri Sperry

Posted by On

Yin & Yang

Duality of Work Life Balance

 

Why Yin Yang?Work-Life Balance - sperryr.com Sellsedona.com

Without getting too far into the weeds, yin and yang describes the harmonious and interdependent nature of forces. Good versus evil or light versus darkness can be forces of yin and yang.  In the same thought, work life balance fits that same interdependent nature. It is up to us to create the harmony that balances the push versus pull. 

 The Struggle

As an empty-nester, I don’t have to struggle like I did many years ago when our children were growing up. However, I still have a grandson, Tristan, that my husband and I watch on Sundays. So there may be a little struggle from my inability to let loose of this little one to get anything done when I am at home. It is frustrating but a happy frustration!

The Issues

Tristan & NanaI want to spend all my time with Tristan but clients call, houses need to be shown, questions need to be answered. Contracts and paperwork need to be done timely. These are just some of the issues I still deal with.  My son and daughter-in-law are very lucky to have us living so close to them. I do believe they are very appreciative, but it still creates that work/life struggle for balance.

On the other hand, I also realize how very blessed I am that we live so close that we can watch Tristan grow up. We recognize and are thankful for this. So as an issue, I am happy to have this yin and yang of sorts! 

The Strategies

As most real estate agents and brokers know, things change on a dime. A free day can become a completely full day in a matter of a few phone calls or emails!

When You Love What You Do Is It Work? 

Amalfi CoastI worked 34 years prior to taking time off in 2001. Now, I considered that 34 years work. I was off from 2001 to 2011 and enjoyed doing anything I wanted to do. I even had a personal trainer! My husband and I traveled to many countries. Many were bucket list destinations. So my “balance” was all “life oriented” during that time. To this day, I feel very satisfied in all that I was able to accomplish. …No regrets and nothing but wonderful memories.

The Bug

However, as I have stated before, I have been involved in real estate since I was 19 yearsTristan Sheri Rickold. The bug never left me. In 2011, I finally made the decision to get my real estate license in Arizona. My husband and I made this decision together, knowing full well we would have to put our hearts and souls into this to make it work. We were both excited about the anticipation and the challenge. We felt we were naturals for this. Why not? We had been preparing our whole lives for this challenge. We owned our own home when we were 20 years old, sold many of our homes without any formal help. Many of those homes were sold during crazy California markets over the years.

Balance Through Teamwork

My husband and I work as a team. I am the Sedona REALTOR® and Rick helps with the marketing, photography and other tasks that I may need help with. Rick’s schedule is determined by my needs. We work together to assure that the client is getting the very best service possible. We schedule time for ourselves when we can. If it has to change we don’t have any issue with it. We know we will get our balance when we need it. After all, our Sedona real estate business is not work, it is our passion and a huge part of our life balance.

Yin and yang – The push and pull is only out of balance if you feel it is out of balance!

As a Coldwell Banker Sedona Arizona REALTOR®, my primary goal is to help my customers obtain their dreams, as well as satisfy their financial goals and objectives through real estate. From the moment I am contacted, you will observe my seasoned ability to provide you with “World Class Service” and that “personal touch” while utilizing a complete package of technology options that are of the utmost importance and so critical in today’s market.

April Cottonwood Market Conditions

April ’17 COTTONWOOD 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.

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.

How the Market is Doing 


Median Price 

The Median Price has maintained it’s trend on all but the top bracket. The top bracket added another million dollar home to increase the average. This is the first month we have had 5 homes over a million in the Cottonwood market. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


 

Inventory

Inventory continues to trend downward. Spring is in full swing, there has been no increase in inventory. Also there is no current indication this will happen. All brackets have shown decreases in inventory.  A total of 11 homes have been absorbed this month. This is pretty significant for our market area.  

 

 Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


 

Days On Market (DoM)

The Days on Market for the bottom 3 quartiles are all converging.  However the top quartile is trending higher. This is probably because there are 5 homes over a million dollars that are in that category. One new home was added and 4 homes have been on market since September and before that.  

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

All brackets are showing a decrease in DoM.

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI is continues to show a sellers market in all but the top quartile.  The bottom quartile has shown a dramatic increase from the beginning of this year. It is up to 64 MAI. However, overall, the MAI has slipped just a little. 

Interactive charts below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Bottom Line

Cottonwood is in the seller zone and but a buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate in the top quartile.  Homes are not staying on the market long in the other quartiles.

Luxury Market of Sedona

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

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


 

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

Jerome Arizona ~ Fifth Largest Town In Arizona Territory Hosts 52nd Historic Building Tour

Posted by On

Jerome Arizona sits on the side of Cleopatra Hill located in the Mingus Mountains just 40 minutes to the west of Sedona.  It is a historic town of 400 residents that has gone through many phases over the decades including a take over by the hippies in the 60’s and 70’s!

Visit Jerome Arizona
 This is for sale! Click image for listing info.

Fifth Largest Town In Arizona Territory

At one point in the 1800’s, this mile high mining town was the fifth largest in the Arizona Territory (1899) . It was known far and wide for it’s wild & rowdy saloons and debauchery! What a colorful history it has. Mae West was known to spend much of her time down the hill from Jerome in Cottonwood bars hopping with cowboys, ranchers, and miners.  We all know what a colorful character she was!

Old Town Cottonwood is taking a page from Jerome’s book and transforming the historic district into eclectic and charming shops, winery tasting rooms and a variety of restaurants that will delight all palettes with unique flavors and cuisine. One of my favorites is Nic’s Italian Bistro right on Main Street.

Jerome Is Unique

The unique feature of Jerome is the way these 1800 and turn of the 20th century dwellings and businesses dot the hilly landscape. Many sit on stilts and are built on land that drops off dramatically from street level. Other dwellings require you to climb lots of stairs to get to the main level. Just about every house or business has a view that most of us would die for. Jerome Arizona Tourism
All in all, this makes for a great time visiting these unique shops and restuarants. One of my favorite restuarants to visit in Jerome is the Assylum in the Grand Hotel.  Jerome is reknowed for being a ghost town and Jerome Arizona Tourism Grand Hotel
relishes the Halloween season.  The Grand Hotel and Assylum really spruces things up for Halloween.

52nd Annual Historic Home and Building Tour 

On May 20th and 21 from 9am to 3pm, Jerome is holding it’s 52nd Historic Home & Building Tour.  It is the longest running tour in the state.  You will not be disappointed!  Plenty of steps and winding paths makes this tour not handicap accessible. The cost is $20 for adults and $10 for children. Allow yourself at least 2 to 4 hours to get through all the homes. Guests will have the comfort of Spook Hall to enjoy entertainment and seating while waiting for their tour to begin. Vans will transport the guests to the various locations.  It is less crowding in the early afternoon so plan accordingly.

Contact the Jerome Chamber of Commerce at 928-634-2900 for more information about the tour and other events in the area.

Big Park (VOC) Market Report

 

Big Park VOC April Market Report

April ’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.

How the Market is Doing 


Median Price 

The Median Price has decreased from 577,444 to $569,900. The four quartiles are showing mixed results. The upper brackets have shown a decrease while the lower brackets have increased some. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

 

Large Chart


 

Inventory

Inventory though low, is showing signs of upward movement. The market is up 6 homes versus 2 weeks ago. This is a normal seasonal shift. If you compare May of last year to May of this year, the inventory is still way down. 

 

 Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


 

Days On Market (DoM)

The properties in VOC – Big Park and Pine Valley have been on the market for an average of 201 DoM, which continues to show a decrease. Overall there is a 6.7 month supply of homes on market. Three of the four brackets are down. The premium segment is down around a month.

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

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

 

Large Chart


Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI continues to hold at 28.8.  However, all quartiles are in the seller zone or right at 30 MAI. There have been only 2 months where the top quartile moved into the seller zone.  There is such low inventory in the 86336 zip (Chapel area, Uptown and West Sedona that buyers are moving into the VOC area to purchase a home. This drives up the demand creating a seller zone overall for 86351. The chart indicates upward movement at the time this was written.

Interactive charts below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart

 

Bottom Line

The Market Action Index has been trending lower for several weeks while prices have remained relatively stable. Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek continues to have very low inventory. If the inventory continues to rise, it may push a downward demand on pricing. 

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

Luxury Market

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

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

How To Care For Your Real Estate Clients

 During Times With Low Inventory and High Activity

3 Strategies That Get Offers Accepted


Market Strategies Sold Sold Sold Sheri Sperry Coldwell Banker 

Strategies & Solutions To Get A Offer Accepted

When a client is ready to buy a home, knows what they want and is focused on a purchase, there is nothing more frustrating than being unable to find a home that meets their requirements. In many cases it isn’t about money. In fact, many Sedona buyers have pushed up the minimum price point to add more homes to the mix. The problem is that even increasing the price point may not get them what they want. Why? Low inventory. 

My Number One Strategy is Educating My Client

 When we can see that there are no homes that meet the criteria, I explain what our strategy moving forward should be. There is no time to discuss these points when “time is of the essence”.  If the right home comes on market my buyers need to be ready to go! It only takes losing one home because of inaction to make this point stick.

Pre-Plan Strategy

I make sure I am clear on how to proceed at this point. Again, additional questions that have not been answered could create more inaction. So I prepare the buyers as if the home has already been found.

  • Be ready to move forward with everything below – Pre-plan your decisions.
  • If financing, pre-approval is first and foremost – Must accompany offer.
    • I explain that cash offers may be more appealing to a seller and Proof of Funds must accompany the offer. 
    • With a loan – contingencies are built in (unless the loan is secured with a different asset other than the home) – Lenders will require inspections, appraisal and certain stipulations of the buyer.
    • Client must have earnest money check – ready to go – earnest money 1% – 2% 
      • Depending on circumstances (as an additional incentive) – we might write additional earnest monies after the inspection period is concluded.
  • Pre-write the offer so that as soon as a showing is done and client gives approval, any last details can be filled in and the offer sent to selling agent.

 Create A Spirit of Teamwork and Cooperation with Selling Agent

I always call the selling agent to build a relationship and alliviate any concerns. This helps frame a spirit of teamwork.  I work hard to eliminate barriers which can create an adversarial relationship.

This is a key point. Sales people know you have to get to the decision maker to make a sale. Most of the time, that means going through the receptionist or gate keeper. If you can’t build a relationship with the gate keeper, you will never see that decision maker.  

REALTORS® Are The Gate Keepers

REALTORS® are the stop-gap between the buyer and seller and the agents on both sides of the transaction must work together to benefit both clients. Creating a positive impression and spirit of cooperation with the other agent may have a positive affect and move the offer to the top of the pile.  


As a Coldwell Banker Sedona Arizona REALTOR®, my primary goal is to help my customers obtain their dreams, as well as satisfy their financial goals and objectives through real estate. From the moment I am contacted, you will observe my seasoned ability to provide you with “World Class Service” and that “personal touch” while utilizing a complete package of technology options that are of the utmost importance and so critical in today’s market.

Median Price

The Median Price has increased from $697,000 to $750,000. As you can see by the chart below, the quartiles are relatively stable other than the Top Quartile which continues to drop slightly.. Look for a persistent shift (up or down) in the Market Action Index (MAI) before prices move from these current levels.

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


Inventory

The Inventory has hit new lows for the year.   Historically, Spring starts the time many sellers put their homes on market. You can see that the inventory has finally started to shift upward. There are 10 additional homes on market in the past 3 weeks. Note – rising inventory alone does not signal a weakening market. Look at Market Action Index and Days on Market (DoM) to gauge whether buyer interest is keeping up with available supply. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Large Chart


Days On Market

Days On Market – Trends are starting to show a decline. With little inventory to pick from all homes are being looked at and offers are being made. New homes on market 4 weeks ago are gone! The DoM will come down because of new listings and old listings selling. 

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information


Large Chart


Market Action Index

The Market Action Index continues to rise overall. 30 is the break even point between seller vs buyer advantage.   This rise is across all quartiles.  If this continues, pricing may move to a strong seller advantage.  Only the top quartile is in the buyer zone. Typically the premium segment of the market takes longer to sell.

 

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 and Days on Market are both trending higher recently. However, the Market Action Index implies some increased demand will temper the negative trends. Currently we are in the height of the Spring selling market. Keep an eye on the Market Action Index to see if it impacts the median price. 

 

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) continues to hold at $1,500,000. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares.

Cottonwood Market Report

 

Cottonwood AZ March 2017 - homes for sale

Mar ’17 COTTONWOOD 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.

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.

Days On Market (DoM)

The Days on Market for the bottom 3 quartiles are all converging.  However the top quartile is trending higher. this is probably because there are 4 homes over a million dollars that are in that category.

When looking at brackets, the only bracket that is sowing a decrease in DoM is the bottom bracket. It is also the only bracket with additional homes added to the market.

Cornville March Market Report

Mar ’17 Cornville/Page Springs Verde Santa Fe 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.

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.

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.

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 showing a decrease in 2 of the quartiles. The top quartile dropped by 9 days. The upper bracket has shown the biggest drop by 80 days to 174. The median price is $385,000. This definitely taps into the lack of  inventory in Sedona, This is less than 6 months supply.   Even though the bottom 2 quartiles rose slightly, the DoM is less than 3 months.  This is a Seller’s market. 

If you are interested in a value priced home don’t wait to make an offer!

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI is continues to show a strong seller market in all but the top quartile.  In January all 4 quartiles were in the seller zone.  However, there has been a dramatic shift in the top quartile by about 9 points downward. Also there is a sharp downward trend in the other quartiles.

Bottom Line

Overall the real estate market for Cornville, Page Springs and Verde Santa Fe has very low inventory.  Nothing has really changed much this first quarter. A buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate in the top two quartiles – above $350,000.  Homes are not staying on the market long in the bottom two quartiles which means that  you won’t have much negotiating room unless the house has been on the market much longer than the average DoM currently in those brackets. 

Luxury Market of Sedona

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

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


 

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.

Almost Wordless Wednesday – Full Pink Moon Euphoria

In Celebration of the First Full Moon of Our Sedona Spring

The Pink Moon

 

pink moon List your sedona home with Sheri Sperry

A “Pink Moon” doesn’t actually turn pink. The term comes from the moss pink herb or wild phlox flower.  This is widespread during this time of year. Other names include Grass Moon or Egg Moonpink moon. These names correlate to the Northern Hemisphere seasons.

Many tribes over the centuries have followed the cycle of the moon and stars as their calendar for planting, hunting, migration, etc. So each lunar cycle represents a particular seasonal or life occurrence. The first full moon of Spring is the Pink Moon.

Big Park (VOC) Market Report

 

Big Park VOC March Market Report

Mar ’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.

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI is decreasing in all quartiles after a strong February increase. However, all quartiles are comfortably in the seller zone which is above 30 MAI. There have been only 2 months where the top quartile moved into the seller zone.  There is such low inventory in the 86336 zip (Chapel area, Uptown and West Sedona that buyers are moving into the VOC area to purchase a home. This drives up the demand creating a seller zone overall for 86351.

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.

The top 10% of active listings   (which is different from sold listings) is at $950,000 for the Village. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares to the sold market.

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

The Sedona 86336 market has hit that glass ceiling for Days on Market (DoM). The DOM has finally fallen. Buyers realize that the inventory is low and it is time to deal with sellers with homes that have been on the market.  Also sellers are seeing that other homes are selling which is motivating them to work to ensure a deal with buyers that put in an offer.  Some sellers are lowering their price to their absolute bottom line and that is helping to reduce inventory as well. 

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) continues to hold at $1,500,000. – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares.
