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.

Soldiers Pass – Red Rocks and Luxury Homes

Soldiers Pass is a very special place to live. It is located just west of Uptown Sedona. The road goes back a little more than a mile and it winds and bends it’s way through Soldiers Pass.  You get to see the many faces of Coffeepot Rock as you work you way through the pass. To the right of the road you will see the Sphinx and the Mittens further right you can easily see Ship Rock and The Fin.

Soldiers Pass – Close to Everything

Besides being three to five minutes from shopping, grocery stores, professional services and restaurants, Soldiers Pass is home to the lighted ball parks of Posse Grounds Park along with basketball courts, Sedona plunge, and a first class skate park and teen center.  It is also home an amphitheater that holds concerts. Of course, we can not underscore all the wonderful trails to explore. Trails that most homes can access within walking distance from their front door! 

Up Against Forest Service and Red Rocks

At the very end of Soldiers Pass right under Coffeepot Rock, you will find the Cottages of Coffeepot. As you travel toward the entrance you will see Coffeepot Rock in the foreground and Thunder Mountain in the back of Coffeepot Rock.

Sedona was a favorite get-away spot for Walt Disney. Thunder Mountain was the inspiration for the thrill ride at Disneyland of the same name “Thunder Mountain”. You can see by the red rock spires where the influence came from if you have been to Disneyland.

Record February 2019 Sedona Snowfall ~ Soldiers Pass West Sedona AZ

Posted by On

Record Sedona Snowfall!

Cottages At Coffeepot

2016

Three years ago in 2016, Sedona had a very spring like February. In most years the Sedona spring kicks in starting February. For example, 17 days had temps in the 70ºs. In fact, 12 days were above 75º. One day hit 80º!

2017 – 2018

In 2017, there were 11 days above 60º and that started early in the month (Feb. 4th). Only 6 days dipped below 32º for a low temp in the morning.  In 2018, 39 days were above 60º and 26 of those days happened in January.

Snow in January and February was a little over 4 inches for each year.  The snow in Sedona generally will evaporate in less than a day and there is no ice accumulation especially if these areas are in the sun.

 El Niño

During an El Niño climate shift, the U.S. Southwest as well as the southern part of the United States experiences a wet and in some places, a colder climate with more snow than usual. The warming of the Pacific Ocean generally develops between April and June and will peak in December and January. The affects of this condition have been noticeable this 2019 winter season.

2019 – An Unusual Winter For Sedona 

El Niño is responsible for our extreme cold weather this winter and especially February. Sedona had 5 low temperature readings below 20º with 11.2º the lowest temp so far this year. I am pretty sure this will hold as the lowest temperature. Last year only 1 day at 18.6º was recorded. The high temp for the month was 65.7º, where as last year it was 73.5º.  February had the most snowfall in any recorded month since starting in 2010 at 25.51 inches recorded at the Cottages At Coffeepot weather station.

Celebrating 25 Years of Sedona Film Festival – Starts February 23rd 2019

Posted by On

Sedona International Film Festival

February 23 to March 3, 2019

 Sedona International Film Festival

SedonaFilmFestival.org 

It All Started Back In 1995…

Sedona AZ Feb 23, 2018 – The Sedona International Film Festival will begin festivities on Saturday February 23rd. It all started back in 1995, with a modest 3 day festival. The festival is rich in history. Every year it has grown larger and larger.

Silver Anniversary Edition of Sedona Film Festival

This is the Silver Anniversary edition and will be a big celebration of serving the communities.  Seven years ago, the Mary Fisher Theatre which provides a venue for theatre art, was opened all year long and it couldn’t be done without the generous support of the community of Sedona and the international film community.

An International Success

The Sedona Film festival has blossomed into a 9 day event with more than 170 award winning selections.  Independent film connoisseurs come from all over the world to enjoy these films as well as the beauty of Sedona and all that it offers.

Much To See and Do

There are special events being held and attended by celebrity guests, as well as panel discussions, workshops and anniversary celebrations that will culminate on Sunday, March 3rd with showings of the award winning films shown at the Harkins Theatre. Many guests will hold private Oscar parties afterward. 

Coincides With The Oscars

The Sedona International Film Festival is planned to coincide with the week before the Oscars every year.  This is the 25th year of this festival and each and every year the venues have gotten better and the crowds larger.

Mary D Fisher Theatre

Years ago, all the events were held only at the local Harkins theatre and under tents.  Now, there is an upscale Mary D Fisher theatre where the home offices of the International Film Festival are headquartered as well as a beautiful venue for holding movie revues as well as live or televised events in all the arts.

 The Sedona Art Preforming Center

Located adjacent to the Red Rock High School, it is the newest and largest venue for film festival events. All the events and parking areas are well planned and traffic moves surprisingly well!  I do recommend getting to the events early so as to get a good seat.  All three venues where films will be screened are great areas to view films.

Look For Special Guest Appearances

As many of you know, many of the films will have special guests to add color commentary and take your questions.  You may also get to see some celebrities who will be taking questions or preforming. This year Ed Asner, Billy Zane, Lin Shay, Mackenzie Phillips, Amy Smart and Mariel Hemingway will be on hand to help the Sedona International Film Festival celebrate 25 years of excellence.

The Greek God of Winter Is Visiting Sedona in February 2019!

Posted by On

A Snowy Sedona February!

 ~ ~ ~

Greek god of the North WindThe Greek god Boreas, has decided to visit Sedona. He must have seen some of the pictures of the red rocks covered in snow and decided to take a mini vacation right smack dab in Sedona in Northern Arizona! I have been waiting for Persephone who is the Greek goddess of spring.  Oh! If you find that ground hog Phil…let him know I got his number! 

 

The Weather Services Are Right On….So Far

We have been monitoring the weather for a couple of days now. The weather services have said that the high country which includes Sedona could get 5 to 9 inches of snow and the temps won’t even hit 40º. Normally, we can go a long time without hitting high temps this low. In 2016, there were 18 days of 70º+ weather with a high of 80º. There is a big difference this year.  It is a snowy Sedona February!

The Snow Stopped For Two Hours

The sun came out just long enough to evaporate all the snow on the pavement. But now the snow has started once again.  We are on the north side of 4 inches and rising. It will be interesting how the rest of this storm plays out. 

A Low of 4º On Wednesday

We live in an area of a slight incline but both my car and my husband have 4 wheel drive.  My husband has a rock climbing jeep. That vehicle can go anywhere. I am not worried about the roads. The forecast shows clearing skies for Tuesday and Wednesday but that means super cold lows of 11º and 4º! There will be more snow on Thursday and Friday.  


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.

Sedona weather January 2019

January came in with very cold temps and a half inch of snow as well! Last January (2018), there was one day that was in the 70ºs and 25 days in the 60ºs.  That January was the warmest in Sedona in 10 years. The temps were spring like temps which actually got our spring off to an early start. But this January the weather was a little colder….but not that bad. It was right in the middle of the pack. 

New Year’s Day 2019 – Coldest So Far

In the first month of the year, there were only 9 days in the 60ºs with 16 days in the 50ºs. The lowest temp was on January 1st with a low temp of 12.8º. However, that particular day managed to get to 35.6º. Neither December 2018 nor January 2019had any days in the 70ºs. In the last two years, there have been no months back to back that did not have at least 1 day in the 70ºs, until this month.

January 2019 Market Report ~ Big Park – VOC – Village of Oak Creek – HOMES FOR SALE and MARKET 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.

January 2019 Big Park VOC – When it comes to Big Park/Village of Oak Creek real estate & Golf Resort homes for sale, you only need to go to the Village of Oak Creek (VOC) to fulfill your dream. Homes are sprinkled around the 45 holes on two golf resorts and one executive golf course.  For those who enjoy this sport, there is a home for you either close to or on a golf course.  But for those who like the serene atmosphere and beauty of a home straddling one of the beautiful and well manicured fairways this may be right for you as well!


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)

Days on Market (DoM) – The properties in VOC – Big Park and Pine Valley have been on the market for an average of 134 DoM. Overall there is around a 4.5 month supply of homes on market. This is an increase of around 1 month since last May. The top bracket is at 6.4 months supply. It has been moving up since mid-July.  Other than the top bracket, the rest are in a strong seller range. About 6.5 to 7.5 months supply of homes is the break for buyer vs. seller advantage.

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – The MAI has been above 30 for most of 2018 except for the top bracket. A home that has been on market for 190 days may allow for some negotiation.  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.  It is much harder for a buyer to take a strong negotiating stand because other buyers may be in play.

Bottom Line

Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek continues to have very low inventory. Key in on how long a home has been sitting on the market. 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.

Market Action Index

The Market Action Index – “30” is the break even point between seller vs buyer advantage.  The overall index is buyer market, however, if you look at the chart below, you will see that all tiers but the top tier are above 30 and trending higher.  This means that buyers should be able to make a good deal at the top tier level. Watch for the number of days on market and look for “price drops”. This may indicate motivated sellers.

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 of 2018 with the top tier softening the most. The luxury market inventory is slightly lower than last year.  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.

Buyers are looking, but not always finding what they want. The mortgage rates have improved somewhat. This has had a positive affect on buyers coming out. Many buyers prefer the west side of Sedona often called West Sedona. It has a majority of small business, shopping centers, restaurants, and professional services.  Prices are up about 23% higher in West Sedona, comparing this to the Village of Oak Creek. 

 

Luxury Market

As of 01/16/19

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president of, defines the Luxury Market as the top 10% of the listings available. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes. The price point has increased from $882,500 in October to $1,060,000 for the top 10% of the market. This figure is based on the last 6 months of sold listings. The top 10% of active listings (which is different from sold listings) has moved higher from $1,998,500 in October to $2,200,000 currently. This is a $200,000+ increase – This just gives you an idea of how the active market compares.

Cold Moon Setting on Thunder Mountain….Sedona Arizona

Cold Moon Setting On Thunder Mountain…

Cold Moon on Thunder Mountain Sedona AZ

If you had a chance to see my blog post “The Joy of Life…” which I posted on December 23rd, you might have caught how my home sets east and west with wall to wall windows.  This gives those inside the home the ability to see the sun and moon rise and set, all year long.

Today was one of those days I looked out to see the sun rising on Thunder Mountain. Thunder Mountain sits to the west and I can see the reverse sunrise on Thunder Mountain and Coffeepot Rock. I happened to notice the sun setting and called over my husband to see it. 

He grabbed his camera, switched to a 400mm lens and toke the picture above without a tripod! As you can see the detail is phenomenal. The sun does not rise in the east until close to 8 am this time of year. 

The bottom image was taken a week after fall equinox after the sun had already risen. I share it to give the top picture some context. 

Walt Disney’s Inspiration

For those who may not have seen other posts about Thunder Mountain.  Yes, this is the inspiration that Walt Disney used for the famous thrill ride of the same name.  Decades ago, Walt Disney had a home here in Sedona. He loved the area and visited as often as he could.

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.

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.

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.
