We also get to interact and network with hundreds of real estate professionals across the US and Canada.  This gives each of us a keen idea of who to refer clients.

My Website (SellSedona.com) Blog

Below

ActiveRain Search for Sedona area blogs

 

As an example, type Sellers into the search box. Just like Google, you will see posts that have that search term.

 

ActiveRain and SellSedona blogs

There are six pages of blogs with the search term “Sellers”.

One of the advantages of using my blog as a reference site is the ability to “google” or search the article or blog base.  When you use the search box, it only searches my information based on the term you put in. Generally, this will give you much more relevant and useful information because you are searching a particular data-base.  Most of the information you get you can apply generally to other geographic areas but the slant of my blog will always be with Sedona or the Verde Valley or Northern Arizona as a reference point.  For example, I may talk about fall projects but fall can start as early as late August in some areas of the country. In Sedona, fall will pick up in mid to late October. So you may not see a blog on this subject until early to mid October.

If you are looking for any information on real estate, start here!  If you don’t find what you are looking for, contact me to help you.  After all, I am YOUR Solutions REALTOR®

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.

Will Sedona Arizona Surpass 300 Days of Sunshine For 2018?

Sedona November 2018 Weather Summary

and

2018 Sedona Weather Summary courtesy of Sheri Sperry Coldwell Banker

 November 2018 to 2017 Weather Comparison

This was Sedona’s 3rd coldest November in the last 9 years. If you compare this November to last year (see 2017 chart below), You will see that Thanksgiving Day was above 80º in 2017.  Though this is quite unusual, Sedona had 19 days over 70º in 2017 but only 5 days over 70º this year.  Eleven days dipped below 32º in the early morning hours.

2017 Final Sedona Weather Stats

Mild Winter Months

The 2017 Chart was changed in 2018 to make it easier to see where the temperature falls daily by month. Everyone has a different understanding of what they feel is tolerable or comfortable weather. By separating the categories into 10º zones, it gives the reader a better understanding of how our temps change. It is very rare that temperatures rise above 105º or drop too much below 50º. The low humidity all year long creates more comfortable zones at the extremes.

The revamped 2018 chart shows that there are only 11 total days in the 40ºs and no days in the 30ºs for the entire year so far. For those who really don’t want to tolerate that kind of weather, Sedona is an option to live here during the winter months. More than two-thirds of November was in the 60ºs or 70ºs!  Nice weather considering!….

Lots of Sunshine!

Sedona as does most of Arizona, gets very few days of continuous overcast conditions.  Many of the storms move right through the state quickly. This creates more days of sunshine. Sedona is well ahead of last year for the number of days with sunshine. The area will hit 300 days within the next two weeks. If you are looking for an area that gets lots of sun. Sedona is a great choice to live.

Rand McNally has stated that Oak Creek Canyon is a top 5 scenic drive. Whatever time of year you decide to visit, drive the Oak Creek area. Fall is a very special time of year to drive this scenic highway.

A Sedona Photographer’s Secrets Revealed

Posted by On

Utilizing Mother Nature’s Gifts To Provide Dramatic Effect

West Sedona - Soldiers Pass - homes for sale

 

Some photographers take pictures and there are some who paint images through the lens of a camera. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to watch my husband (Rick) master his photographic skills. As an amateur photographer, he enjoyed taking landscape photography. Every trip we took was another journey in learning his craft. It is a passion of his to capture and freeze a moment in time. He relishes sharing it with others. The highest compliment one can give him is “WOW”! BTW – Rick is self-taught!

My tours have garnered almost 237,000 views. There are 6 separate homes displayed below and those homes alone have over 98,500 views. All are no longer active (sold) but they continue to get a lot of views! The top 5 tours have garnered over 108,000 plus views.

As Rick has transitioned into a Professional Real Estate Photographer, who has an exclusive contract with me (Ha! Ha!), I can see how much he has grown. With every listing we secure, we work as a team to give it life. Together, we discuss what we need to emphasize, highlight and promote. To us, “Dramatic Effect” is our friend.

– What are the best angles to capture the essence of the home?

– What is the best time of day to seize the proper lighting and bring out the very best in every picture. If I may be so bold, lighting is the makeup of the “model”. Proper “make up” brings out the very best features of the subject in the artistic imagery. Rick has found that the more natural the lighting and sometimes a little fill light brings out the best in a home.

– When possible, we come back several times to get the very best Mother Nature has to offer for lighting and weather. Clouds are also our friend. However….

– Shadows are the enemy – Whenever possible, stay away from shooting a picture with harsh shadows. There are special filters that can help to minimize the effects of harsh shadows. This is another reason we come back at different times of the day.

– Staging is a must. Sometimes we don’t have complete control over staging a home. Simple staging to highlight an area may be as simple as flowers strategically placed or place settings at a table. More complex staging may involve rearranging furniture. Ever watch a movie or TV Show, no one has their back to the camera. To get the right angle a piece of furniture may have to be taken out of the picture. A diligent artist will make it happen.

– Don’t sacrifice the beauty and charm to sell a view. Make sure you have an image to compliment the entire room besides any view that may be a feature you are trying to promote.

– I get my sellers buy-in by educating them on what we are trying to accomplish.

Screen-Shot-2016-05-03-at-12.03.39-PM-1024x678

This picture was a picture that we rejected. It was taken near sunset and did not take advantage of the magic a morning sunrise would hold. Also the clear sky does not any dramatic effect to the shot.

1-Main-25-Buckskin-SellSedona.com_-1024x683

Another secret revealed…With a home that faces east, use the rising sun as natural lighting that will enhance the image. Get there before sunrise and snap away. Use different angles. This pic was taken 2 feet off the ground to use the rocks as a frame and give the picture some depth of field.

11-North-Private-Patio-copy

In this image, we are highlighting the pottery that is part of a pillar that would not be in any other shot. The pottery and the pine frame the image and draw your attention the the signature water feature.

8-Mstr-BD-Sitting-Area-1024x680

Two more secrets revealed – #1 – Natural lighting…there is no substitute! #2 – You are trying to sell your customer a lifestyle. Take advantage of the perfect setting. Can you picture yourself sitting in one of these chairs reading a good book with the fire feature dancing in the background? I can!

Sometime a feature is the whole room. Our client who built this home loves skiing in Colorado. This influenced his design of the fireplace. Notice the subtle framing of the natural beam pillars.

Here is the other side of the fire feature. It is the first thing you see as you enter the foyer.

In the picture below, you have seen the fire feature and are now entering the Great Room with 20 ft ceilings and a magnificent view of Castle Rock in the Village of Oak Creek.

3-Foyer-2-sided-Fireplace-683x1024

4-Great-Room-View-1024x683

Rick will not compromise the listing with shabby pictures.  He understands that there are many homes that a potential buyer may want to view and there is only so much time available. We owe it to our sellers to give them the very best solutions to fulfill their desired goals.

Some of these pictures are from current listings and others are from listings that were sold in previous years.

Here are the full tours to see the rest of the pictures highlighted here.

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 2018 Market weakened over the summer with the top tier softening the most.  The median price has increased dramatically since December by approx. $125,000. The luxury market inventory is about the same as winter.  If buyers can find a home that has been on the market for awhile, you may be able to get a good deal. Also multi-million dollar homes may have motivated sellers. 

 

Luxury Market

September 2018 – Sedona Weather Stats Update and Summary

Posted by On

September 2018

Sedona Weather Stats Update 

September Sedona Weather

September 2018 Sedona Weather Summary

September 2018 Sedona Weather Stats Update – Our weather transition to Fall starts in mid-August. So by September the low temps are in the mid- 50ºs. You can feel the crisp air and smell the pine. It is wonderful! We did have 8 more days over last year above 90º which brought the mean temp up by 3º. But by evening, the windows were open allowing the AC to be turned off. There were a couple of days we did not even turn the AC on. One day had a high of 67º! That particular day we got a cold rain. Total rain for the month was .78 inches.

300 Days of Sunshine?

We are a 9 months into the year and have 239 days of sunshine so far. We are on the way to another 300 days of sunshine for the year! We only need 20 days a month to reach that goal.

September 2018 Sedona Weather

Link for —> Complete Summary of Sedona Weather for 2017 

Finding That Ideal Weather Temperature Range

It is now September and we have a summary for Sedona weather.  I think it is important to re-introduce the three new categories added. I was trying to find a consensus on what is the ideal weather temperature range. The more research I did, I found that this was extremely subjective. Everyone has a different opinion of what they consider to be a comfortable range. So added the 3 ranges that were not accounted for on the previous chart.  You will find them in green.

An Example —> A Fairly Mild January 2018 ! 

If I tell you that the Sedona weather was fairly mild in January; without the green ranges above, you might not see it. But by including the 3 additional ranges, you can see that in January, there was 1 day in the 70º’s and 18 days in the 60º’s. So two-thirds of the month of January was above 60º!  This gives the reader a better idea of what the writer considers to be mild.  Also, it will help you identify what you feel is “comfortable weather”, and ultimately, your range is what really matters.

 

The Sedona Weather Almanac has the complete history from 2010 of rain and snow totals by month as well as mean temperature. It also has the highest and lowest temperature by month and the historic average for comparison.

Sedona Fall Color – Two Not So Secret Hiking Locations! Flagstaff – Aspens and Sedona – West Fork

Posted by On

fall color - Western Hills - first listing - 11-20-11

Above – Signature tree at my first listing November 2011! I took this as a sign of good things to come…

 

Fall Color In Sedona Is Beautiful

….and It Is Finally Here!

Fall color in Soldiers Pass Cottages At Coffeepot

 

Fall color….I love all the seasons in Sedona, but fall is special to me.  This season is much shorter than spring but the number of people who visit Sedona in the fall is comparible. Great weather, lots of color, crisp mornings help to enthusiastically bring in fall. 

Tourist Season

fall color Aspens - Flagstaff Sheri Sperry

Aspens – Flagstaff Snowbowl

The fall Sedona tourist season starts around the last week of September and goes through Thanksgiving.  Of course, the Christmas season is supported by the “Valley of the Sun”. Last year was a good example of a “Hallmark” experience! Many people like to go to Flagstaff to see the Aspens and then they come to Sedona for a meal. The above pic was taken Oct 2, 2017. It won’t be long now! Flagstaff sits at 7000 to 7500 feet, so fall color will start soon. Temps hover around 70º in late September. 

Sedona West Fork Color Arrives Late October Into November 

fall color - West Fork Trail - Sedona Sheri Sperry Coldwell Banker\

 

West Fork Trail

The hiking trails are also very crowded.  West Fork in Oak Creek Canyon sits about 5300 to 5660 feet and is the most popular area during this time. You can spend more time on the trails because the weather is milder than summer and generally you don’t have to worry about monsoon. West Fork trail follows Oak Creek and has towering red rock walls throughout. Various foilage will be in different stages of fall color. Expect heavy traffic (foot and car). Get to the parking area before 8 am.  

Spring Season Lasts about 5 – 6 Months 

Our spring tourist season starts in January, builds through the Cactus League baseball in February and goes through 4th of July weekend.  Tourism is lighter about 2 months a year scattered between mid July through August and part of December and a couple of weeks in January.

Snapshot Video

             

Go to SedonaLuxuryHome.com to learn more about the listing above

located at 108 Shadow Mountain Drive, Sedona AZ 86336.

If An Image Scrolls Only One Second… 

Will It Still Make An Impression?

I want to share this 49 second (Sedona Snapshot) video on YouTube with both sellers and buyers.  The goal is to show what can be done on social media channels to hold the attention of the viewer.  

The average time a picture scrolls on a video is usually 4 seconds.  The bulk of these pics were cut down to aproximately 1 second each.  There is an intro and outro and the first two pics are a little longer than 1 second.  

To grab the attention of the viewer, my husband decided to use an aerial snippet that shows the red rock views. 

The Fast Pace of Social Media

It is my opinion that with the fast pace of social media, using the Sedona Snapshot Video is a great way to hold someone’s attention.  Years ago, we were told that to hold the attention of a viewer the video needs to be less than 3 minutes!  Then it was cut to less than 2 minutes and now it is below a minute!

If your videos are not held to 45-50 seconds, the viewer may go on to the next thing.  I follow the trends on social media and the marketing and syndication venues to make sure I offer the very latest marketing tools to assist my client in selling their Sedona luxury home. I coined the term Snapshot Video to show that the length of the video does matter with viewers. The fast pace of the images moving past, tends to keep viewers engaged because they realize the Sedona snapshot video is progressing quickly.  

Instagram

When Sedona snapshot videos are uploaded to Instagram, the cover image (or frame) is picked by Instagram. Most of the videos that my husband loads are done on a Mac desktop and he has found that the videos we create have to go through video editing software. 

When you use Instagram, the best way to get the thumbnail that you want to show up at the beginning is to add a screenshot or image at the very beginning. This applies to videos that are uploaded from a laptop or desktop computer to Instagram. An app that works well to upload pics or video to Instagram is the Uplet app.  

  • Make the duration of the first image about one tenth of a second and when the video is uploaded to Instagram, that image will show first. 
  • Reminder – Instagram video can only be more than 3 seconds and less than 60 seconds. 
  • Convert the 1920×1080 mp4 video to 640×480 wide pixels to make sure that the video remains in frame. 

You can use Youtube video on just about all the other social media outlets. The areas I put these videos are: Facebook and the business page, Google +, Linkden and Linkedin business, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Is Monsoon 2018 Over In Sedona? Discover Arizona Climate Difference

Posted by On

Fire In The Sky Monsoon

Sedona Weather Summary Through August

Sedona August Weather

Sedona-Weather.com

 

Is Monsoon 2018 Over?

In Arizona, our big weather season is nearing the end. There has been little indication of monsoon throughout the state since the first week of September.  

A note for those not familiar with monsoon.  It is a season in and of itself. We do not add season when speaking of monsoon. As with hurricanes where you need 80º water temperature to form them, dew points affect monsoon development. Weather patterns have not changed as of now but the dew temps need to be at 55º or above to form the storms.  We may see monsoon before the month is done, but peak monsoon is long over. 

When talking about extreme weather conditions such as monsoon microburst and wind events, southern Arizona has a higher risk of a major event.  Sedona is surrounded by red rocks and mountains which minimizes conditions for major wind events and virtually eliminates dust events or haboobs. 

Climate Differences ~ Sedona Sits In The “Sweet Spot”

 Waking up to fresh crisp air is very invigorating. It is one of the little things I enjoy about living here. In Sedona, our low temps have been in the 50ºs since August 23rd.  I believe this keeps our high temps from shooting over 100º.  The last day we were over 100º was on August 19th.

monsoon 2018According to 12 News Weather, today the Phoenix area is under an “Excessive Heat Warning”.  The temperature is expected to get over 110º for the 23rd day this year. Phoenix averages 18 days OVER 110º normally. The highest number of days was 28.

 About 10º to 15º Difference In Temperature From Other Arizona Areas 

When talking about climate or weather conditions, Sedona sits in the “sweet spot” of
Arizona. It is located in a transitional zone between the Sonoran Desert and the Colorado Plateau, Being in the transition zone, the weather is more mild in the summer and winter months than other areas such as Phoenix in summer, and Flagstaff or Prescott in winter.

Sedona has had a total of two days that reached 110º in 8 years.  In those same eight years here in Sedona, our average number of days over 100º is 21. Most of those days hang around 102º.

 

 

Sedona and Arizona ~  An Arid Environment

Ten to fifteen degrees makes a big difference when looking at extremes. Because Sedona and Arizona are in an arid environment, heat does not feel as oppresive because of the lack of humidity. There is a condition called “virga” that is prevalent in Arizona. To simplify, it is a condition where rain is falling from a cloud and evaporates before it hits the ground. 

People who visit as well as residents, have to be very cautious out in the heat because heat exhaustion and sun stroke can sneak up on you. Keep exercise to a mimimun, drink plenty of fluids and stay indoors as much as possible. 

What About Winter Conditions?

Looking at extremes in cold temperatures, Sedona has had only two days (total), below 32º. 

Snow Appears to “Disappear!”

One of those days was January 1st, 2011 and the other was March 20th, 2012.  No other days since have had a high temperature that is below freezing. This means that there are very low instances of ice accumulation. Generally a small amount of snow or ice may linger in shaded areas. In other areas, the snow actually evaporates rather quickly after a snowfall. It appears to disappear!

In areas such as Flagstaff and Prescott as well as the White Mountains, snow takes much longer to melt. You can see parking lots full of dump truck loads of snow and it does not go away quickly. Fortunately, our arid climate makes winter conditions more bearable even in the colder climates of Flagstaff and Prescott. 

The Four Seasons of Sedona

In Summary

When I moved to Sedona, I wasn’t sure how the winters were going to be. I am a fair-weather person and not interested in living in a cold climate. I found out that Sedona offered the best of all scenarios for four-season weather.

We get it all, but in very moderate doses. It is rare that I have to wear anything but a sweater in winter. In Summer, there is little humidity. The arid air dissipates the affects of any humidity. You just don’t feel it.  

Fall and spring are so beautiful and very long seasons. Can you imagine springtime that starts early February and goes through mid-June? How about fall? Temps start hitting the 50ºs in mid August and freezing temps don’t start until around Thanksgiving. I can’t ask for anything more.

Discover the Crimson Vortex Power of Red Rock Romance – Why Do Visitors and Buyers Flock to the Sedona Lifestyle?

Posted by On

Enjoying The Red Rock Romance of the Sedona Lifestyle

 

Sedona Lifestyle - homes for sale

 

The Iconic Red Rock Vistas

The Red Rock Romance attracts 3 million plus visitors a year. Back in the early and mid 20th century, many Westerns were filmed in the Sedona area. Of course, back then there were very few homes and the wide open range was perfect for wagon train or camp scenes and wide angle shots that captured the gorgeous red rocks. Fast forward to present day and we still see movies and television commercials, mostly car commercials shot on these back roads where the camera can capture the background. Unlike the black and white movies of those past eras, color commercials capture the brilliance of the stunning crimson red rock color. Special TV programs are filmed with red rock backgrounds and sporting events such as major football games, Super Bowl etc., send camera crews to get that iconic shot of Cathedral Rock (like the one above)! Media and “Best of….” rankings work like a magnet to attract visitors to this special area.  For example, Sedona was ranked 13th recently by TripAdvisor among the Top 25 US Destinations. Once here, they want to become “buyers”.

Many of our customers marvel and dream of living among these magnificent red rock monoliths. Buyers want homes with red rock views. It is that simple! This is number one on their wish list. Though view homes, like ocean front homes, come with a price.  Occasionally, the right view home comes on market at a price point the customer can afford. Those homes do not stay on the market long, so a buyer must be ready to act.Sedona lifestyle - homes for sale

Weather 

300 Days of Sunshine 

Ensures an active Sedona Lifestyle

We get many of the 3 million visitors in our Fall and Winter Season.  Retired folks want to get out of those cold climates in other parts of the country.  They flock to the warmer climates.
Our Sedona climate is pretty mild all year long. The highest mean temperature was 79.2º in June. By August of this year, the mean temperature dropped to 72.9. Summer temps that allow for windows to be open at night and air conditioners to be turned off.  During our winter months, there were only 2 days since 2011 that were below freezing. So far this year, only 12 days were below 50º! Generally, all you need is a sweater when you go out.  We have “polite snow” because it does not stick around. Usually it is gone within a day. See all Sedona Weather stats at

Ricks World Sedona . There are five to seven years of stats available.

Outdoor & Other Activities

Another area that is high on our buyers’ list is the ability to enjoy the outdoors – all year long.  Every activity that you do in the summer can be done in the middle of winter as well. Our most popular attractions are our hiking trails. According to one local hiker, Bill Bohan, he has hiked 1600 miles in his 13 years here in Sedona. You can find an alpha list of all the trails he has categorized here.

<— My favorite hike is Devils Bridge.  This is the hike that is pictured. You can see the Bridge from below, above or you can stand on it like you see in the pic. BUT if you are leery of heights, I wouldn’t walk out on the bridge.  It is only 3 feet wide where we are standing.

Every outdoor activity you can think of, you can do. From golfing to red rock jeep tours or rent your own; to visiting historical sites and vortexes.

We have airplane tours, hot air ballon rides, helicopter tours, 2 different train tours. There is swimming in pools, in swim holes, on Slide Rock, or take a leisure kayak paddle that lets you off at a winery! I would be remise if I didn’t include the magical mystical new age connection that is endearing to this small town. Everything from Holistic pedicures to psychic readings and Vortex tours, energy healing, crystal & rock shops as well as aura photography.

For those shopaholics how about visiting all the speciality shops in Uptown and Tlaquepaque as well as Hozho and Hillside shopping centers, as well as many more. There are galleries and world class spas and resorts including fabulous restaurants to choose any style of food you can come up with! Sedona has it all.

 

During the winter months, Sedona hold the annual International Film Festival and the Sedona Marathon. While you are here, don’t forget to visit some of the historical sites that were established centuries ago by the Native American Hopi and Apache tribes.  We also are steeped in Wild West history that you can find in Old Town Cottonwood as well as Jerome. The links below will help you with your itinerary.

Oh! I almost left out the most romantic part of Sedona, your wedding!  Sedona is one of the premier locations for a destination wedding in all of the southwest. There is a link below in Sedona 86336.

Camelback Inn – Sonoran Desert Flora

Camelback Inn

Sonoran Desert Flora….

Camelback Inn Paradise Valley

The Camelback Inn in Paradise Valley is just two hours south of Sedona and offers a different look, dare I say a look into the past, of a very special area in the Valley of the Sun. I highly recommend this five star resort if you are looking to relax and enjoy a little privacy from the outside world. It has the charm of the 1930’s with the modern amenities of today.

While you are down there, check out El Chorro Restaurant located right next to the resort. This restaurant offers top shelf service and food. You will enjoy you five star meal.
