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.

Bottom Line

The Market Action Index which had been trending lower for several weeks while prices have remained relatively stable has now moved back into the seller zone. …just barely. The market is a push right now . Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek continues to have very low inventory. The inventory will have to continue to rise, to trigger a pricing weakness.

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

Luxury Market

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

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