Maui Marriott Vacation Rentals
Marriott – Ka’anapali Beach – OCEAN FRONT Guest Room

Maui Marriott Vacation Club Rentals is a dream vacation spot especially during the winter months.  This week it will be in the mid to high 70ºs.  The whales are here. They will continue to migrate and reach a peak population in the last week of January thru the beginning of March.  You can see these whales from your Ocean Front guest room which includes a balcony especially in the AM because of the angle of the sun.  It is best to bring your binoculars.  They will get a lot of use!

 

This resort sits on Ka’anipali Beach voted #2 in the USA by TripAdvisor  (Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2014).

My particular 2 bedroom oceanfront condo has been rented out for 2017.

Right now this resort is almost sold out for the two weeks I have available, but you can take advantage of a smoking hot deal for a Maui Marriott Vacation rental today!

Please note the rates for the hotel go up January 31st.  See prices and amenities below the pictures.  You can verify these prices by clicking the link above and checking the daily rate for an OCEAN FRONT guest room. Be aware that the prices may continue to rise as availablility becomes slim or you may not see a price because the room is sold out.

Check out my “smokin hot” deal below the pictures!  If nothing else, please enjoy the pictures. This is one of my favorite vacation spots and I want to share it with you.  I have over 50 weeks of vacation time on the islands and consider Maui my second home.  Let me know if you have any questions. Aloha!

I toke all the pictures and 14 of these are of the Marriott Resort.

 

 

 Every day there are picture perfect sunsets!

Night view from Lanai Wing of the Maui Marriott Vacation Club – Ocean Front Balcony

 Whale watching is one of the best experiences while you relax.  You don’t even need to get on a boat, but I recommend the experience.

 Exquisite dining experience at Mamma’s Fish House (not associated with Maui Marriott). This is an expensive meal but you can afford it with all the money you saved on your room! Go for lunch, it is a less expensive and you can enjoy the daylight views.

 More beaches to explore – looking northwest Molokai – Kahana Beach area

Many lagoon style areas to enjoy the main pool.  There are 3 pools for your use on the property.

A great water play area with pirate ship for the little ones. The water is very shallow in this sand pool.

 Pool lounge facing Lanai

 Lounge facing the main pool

 Lush grounds to enjoy in winter!

Another great sunset view from your OCEAN FRONT room!

What is the “pinch me deal”?

 Please scrutinize the Maui Marriott price schedule  for the last week of January.  Unfortunately, there are no Ocean Front rooms available to compare pricing the first week of February. This is the current published room rate. Once the Ocean Front Guest Rooms are sold out. It will be removed from the list you see in the schedule.

As you can see, the room rate for a OCEAN FRONT ROOM is $469 a night or $3,283 a week.

For 2 weeks, you would pay $6,566.

As of right now, you can’t get an OCEAN FRONT ROOM for a full two weeks. Unless you rent my room which is already reserved.

Check out the amenities for each room below – this is a pinch me deal for Maui during this season.

Why Use A Sedona Realtor®?

Posted by On

Sheri Sperry

YOUR Sedona Solutions Realtor®

Finding Real Estate Solutions Is A Big Deal

By Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s, Top Sedona REALTOR® Sheri Sperry ~ YOUR Solutions REALTOR®

Why use Sheri Sperry of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage , when purchasing Sedona real estate for your REALTOR®? For most Americans, a home is the most expensive purchase they’ll make in their lifetime. It’s a serious transaction with significant financial and emotional ramifications for the parties involved, and having proper representation is critical.

Sheri Sperry NAR Realtor.com

Today’s buyers and sellers agree. In 2016, a full 89 percent of buyers used a real estate agent, and so did 88 percent of sellers. Many times, solutions can be challenging and Sheri can tailor solutions to fit your specific needs. Sheri is YOUR Solutions Realtor®.

Realtor® representation during a real estate transaction is important for both buyers and sellers.  Here are six of the chief reasons:

Fiduciary responsibility.

When you work with a Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Sedona Realtor®, their fiduciary responsibility is to you. That means you have an expert who is looking out for your best financial interests, an expert who’s contractually bound to do everything in their power to protect you. That’s big! — The value of that commitment cannot be overstated. “For more than 100 years, Realtors® have subscribed to the NAR’s strict Code of Ethics as a condition of membership,” says National Association of Realtors® President Gary Thomas. “Realtors® have the expertise and experience to help sellers protect their investment and help buyers build theirs.

Sheri Sperry is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert®.  Out of 43,000+ Arizona Realtors, only .2% are MCNE®.

Complex, ever-changing real estate regulations

Buying or selling a home is not like purchasing a plane ticket. Every home is different, and laws change every year and vary from state to state. Generally speaking, people purchase a new home every 7-10 years, and a lot can — and usually does — change between transactions. A Sedona Realtor® like Sheri Sperry is immersed in real estate, and she must stay current with all the updates in regulations, laws, contracts and practices. Once you retain your Realtor® Sheri Sperry, she will put that knowledge to work for you.

Help finding the right home, beyond square footage and baths

Browsing online is a terrific way to start a home search — in fact, almost 90 percent of people start their home search online. But when it’s time to buy, knowing all the pros and cons of a property can help you make the right decision. Sheri a Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Sedona Realtor® lives and breathes real estate, she can share information about a home that you wouldn’t otherwise know. For example, do you know about the perils of polybutylene piping (a plumbing material that’s prone to bursting), or the concerns with FRT plywood (a roofing material that can spontaneously combust in higher temperatures, like those in attics). YOUR Solutions Realtor® can go beyond the aesthetics and tell you important details about homes you’re considering. A Realtor like Sheri Sperry, knows the Sedona real estate market better than most.  She checks the MLS listings 4 to 6 times a day to see what has been added or has gone into contract or closed.

Pricing and selling a home

There are lots of sites where you can view price estimates for your home before you list it for sale, but you take a risk using them. In some markets, online estimates can be off by as much as 35 percent, and they often rely on tax records and data that can be as old as 6-12 months. Realtors® know the local market, have access to the freshest sale data, and can price your house in line with the market to maximize your earnings. In 2012, sellers using an agent got $40,100 more: The median sale price for the 88 percent of sellers who worked with an agent was $215,000, versus a median sale price of $174,900 for the 9 percent of sellers who didn’t use an agent. Also, Sheri Sperry is a past-president of the Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals.  Sheri knows how to price and market property. She networks with top real estate professionals.

Contracts and negotiations

Finding the right home is the fun part. Then the real work begins.: Today’s contracts can be 50 pages long — not counting addendums and riders. Realtors® can help you navigate these complex documents and craft an attractive offer that makes sense for you. Plus, when it comes to negotiation, your Realtor® is your advocate and can bring an objective voice to a very subjective situation. Sheri Sperry is MCNE®

Following a code of ethics

When you work with a Realtor®, you’re partnering with a professional who operates according to a strict code of ethics. In place for over 100 years, the National Association of Realtor® Real Estate Code of Ethics ensures that consumers who work with a Realtor® are treated professionally and ethically in all transaction-related matters.

Make Room for Baby

Posted by On

Tristan Sperry - ReMax Sedona Baby
Tristan Xander Sperry – 11 weeks

Our family recently had a new addition. You might be very surprised to realize that there are many areas you need to follow up on when expecting your bundle of joy.  For first time grand parents like us, there are no words truer! Grand parents have the same challenges as new parents so is your family soon growing from two to three – or even four? Then it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to make room for the newest addition to your tribe. If you aren’t sure how to find space for a baby in your home, here are some ideas to get you started.

Get rid of unneeded clutter

Babies may be small, but their stuff isn’t. You’ll soon find yourself swimming in onesies, stuffed animals and car seats. Before the baby’s arrival, do a thorough purge of items in your home that aren’t really needed. Clear out closets, find what’s hiding under the bed that you forgot about and open up those storage boxes. Sell or donate items that are still in usable condition.

Look for new storage possibilities

You may feel like you’re already maxed out on space, but you’re going to feel even more cramped once there’s another small person in your home. Take a good look around and see how you can better organize and store what you do have. Can you add shelves to the top of the closet? Is there any room under the stairs for storage containers? Are you using all your wall space to its fullest potential?

Minimize baby stuff

You may have dreamed of a state-of-the-art nursery for your new little bundle of joy, but if you’re short on space that may not be a practical idea. Many companies now make small-size solutions for babies, including mini-cribs, collapsible bathtubs and car-seat/stroller combos.  Remember – these are all items you won’t use forever, so it isn’t necessary to buy the biggest and best of everything.

Don’t register for too much

Friends and family may be even more excited about their new family member than you are, and may want to show that enthusiasm by purchasing every item on your registry. Be realistic about what you really need, and encourage people to avoid buying any large or bulky items that aren’t on your registry.

Share a room with parents or siblings

Not all families have the luxury of having a room dedicated just for the baby. In this case, you may want to consider having the baby share a room. If you already have younger children in your home, the baby can easily share with a sibling. If not, many people opt to set up a crib in the corner of their own rooms – which can be kind of nice when stumbling out of bed at 3 a.m. to comfort a crying baby.

Convert an extra room to a nursery

If you’re lucky enough to already have a spare room in your house that you’re using as a guest bedroom, office or workout space, then making room for a baby will be easy. Clear out the old furniture and have fun turning the room into a baby’s paradise, tricked out with all the bells and whistles like a changing station and a rocking chair for late-night feedings.

If you’re getting ready to welcome a new addition to your family – congratulations! With a little creativity and forethought, you can find a way to make room for a baby in your home, even in the smallest of spaces.

Cottonwood AZ 86326 – Homes ForSale

Report 5/23/16

Cottonwood Market Conditions - homes for saleThese 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.

Cottonwood Arizona 86325 is a city, about a half hour south of Sedona. It is located off highway 260.   Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center.  There are many medical offices around the hospital that provide all the services you might need. Go to LifeInSedona.com and select Cottonwood for more information. Old Town Cottonwood has been completely renovated in the last few years.  It has the charm of the Old West and the modern flair of contemporary restaurants and boutique shopping.  One of my favorite gourmet food stores is the Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders.  You must go in there and taste the ultra fresh olive oils and balsamic vinegars they offer.  This Old Town experience is another reason that the Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Cornville areas are thriving.  Not only does this area bring tourism but the locals are fully invested in it’s success!

When you look at the trend lines on the charts below, you will notice that Inventory was at it’s highest level back in August of 2015 for all quartiles. In late April 2016, inventory appear to have bottomed out and are now on the rise once more.  If you look at the search parameters below the number of homes in each category have increased since March of 2016. In the snapshot below, there are 16 more homes on market.  Because of a positive demand in the market place, the upward pressure has had a positive affect on the median price in each quartile but that trend seems to have cooled off. The MAI has seen an increase in May and Days On Market (DOM) are trending down.  These are positive trends for the market. Cottonwood is in the seller zone. if the MAI continues to rise prices may follow.  Keep your eye on the MAI . The top quartile is the only one in the buyer zone. The other 3 quartiles are well into the seller zone. 

 

BOTTOM LINE: The homes in the Cottonwood area are priced more competitively than Sedona. You get more home and property for the price.  Also it is an easy drive to Sedona to enjoy the beauty of that area. Buyers may find some relief in the top quartile. But sellers in the other 3 quartiles have a strong negotiation position.

Report May 23, 2016

May Cornville market conditions

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 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.

The Cornville area is also a bedroom community of Sedona, and it’s close proximity to Cottonwood can be very appealing to many people.  Cottonwood has big box stores such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart as well as the Verde Valley Medical Center.  This is very appealing to many who need to be near medical facilities, doctors and other professionals.

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

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

Though the Cornville AZ 86325 market had seen the DOM (days on market) moving upward since summer of 2015,that has changed. Three of the four quartiles have seen a decrease. Just looking at the search parameters below, you will see that every category but one has fewer homes on market since February. We are currently in the ‘on-season’ and sales activity has increased. Usually, this is the time of year that sellers put their homes on market because of the increased activity. However the inventory levels continue to decrease. 

Overall, the inventory levels and DOM have helped to increase the Market Action Index. Sellers have a solid advantage right now. If this trend continues, there could be upward pricing pressure. Remember that though it is clearly a seller’s market advantage, there may properties that present a better sales position based on the motivation and willingness of the seller to negotiate. This won’t change until multiple offers are being made. 

BOTTOM LINE —> There is not a lot of inventory to choose from. If you find a home you like, you should act on it and make the best possible deal and always seek the advice of a Realtor.


 

One note: The Luxury Market for Cornville currently sits at a price point of $549,000 and above. Five homes are available in this category. The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president of defines the Luxury Market as the top 10% of the listings available.

May VOC

MAY 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.

These 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.

Since March, the Days On Market (DOM) started to trend downward for all quartiles. This trend continues in May, however the lowest priced quartile has started trending upward. Overall, the DOM is trending down. The inventory levels continues to rise which is providing a weak push downward on the Market. In Sedona 86351 which is basically areas east of Bell Rock, median prices have not changed much for several months.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

Check the interactive charts below.  

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

Pricing continues to be relatively stable in May. In the past year, Each quartile has seen little movement in pricing. Areas that affect pricing are DOM and inventory. Buyers and Realtors are waiting for the right homes to come on market and moving those quickly while some homes continue to sit. There will need to be a continued strong downward trend in DOM and number of homes on market before there will be any rise in pricing.

When it comes to Market Action Index, all quartiles except for the most expensive tier, are in the seller range. The bottom tier which was moving toward a buyer’s market in April has moved up 2 points in May.

Overall in May, buyers may still find some reasonable areas of selection in the top quartile.

One note: The Luxury Market has a low price point of $975,000 for VOC. However, the Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes. The price point is at $1,650,000 for the top 10% of the 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.

Sedona Arizona 86336 Homes For-Sale

Report 5/16/16

Sedona May Real Estate Market Report Analysis

 

First of all, as you research Sedona homes for-sale, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”. See the definition of Market Action Index (MAI) above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

Sedona 86336 is the heart of Sedona. There are two zip codes 86336 and 86351. These Market Reports will highlight 86336. In this zipcode, you will find the majority of the shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. It also includes a couple of 5 star resorts and the camping areas and mountain style living in the Oak Creek area heading toward Flagstaff. Sedona 86336 is basically areas such as the Chapel area, Uptown, West Sedona, the airport area and Red Rock Loop.


MAY 2016 SEDONA REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

The Market Action Index continues to show a strong downward trend which started in March. The Median Price is continuing to stabilize in the top tiers but the bottom tiers are showing a slight upward trend.

In April, The Market Action Index was at 25.5. However, the Sedona May Real Estate Market Action Index trend has moved upward slight to 25.8. The MAI has been climbing lately while Days-On-Market is trending down.  These indices point to a positive near-term outlook for the market.

So far in May, there is one additional home in the 86336 inventory. So there is no significant change. The MAI is flat and as stated above, the Days-On-Market is less than April. See all the stats associated with each blue market link below the “Characteristics per Quartile“ Chart.

The DOM has increased approximately 2 weeks for the Upper / Second Quartile while the bottom half of the market showed a decrease, especially the Bottom / Fourth Quartile. It dropped 12 days on this report. If you look at the links to the actual market segments below, you will see that there are 13 less homes on market below $700,000.

Looking to the future: The last 2 summers have seen a similar trend in the fall of DOM in all segments. This would indicate that the market is most active in purchases April, May, and early June. Our schools recess for the summer break in mid May. What that means is that homes are being purchased in the Spring and early Summer and as the homes close in July, the inventory DOM starts to fall.

If you are considering a purchase, you should consider your options now.

Sedona Arizona 86351 Homes For Sale

Report 4/18/16

Screen-Shot-2016-04-23-at-6.03.47-PM

APRIL 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.

These 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.

In the past few months, DOM (days on market) had been moving upward. This trend reversed itself in March and continues to trend downward for all quartiles. Compare March Characteristics to April and you can see the DOM has dropped even more since March. The inventory levels continues to rise which is providing a weak push downward on the Market. In Sedona 86351 which is basically areas east of Bell Rock, median prices have not changed much for several months.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

Check the interactive charts below.  

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

Pricing continues to be relatively stable in April. In the past year, Each quartile has seen little movement in pricing. Areas that affect pricing are DOM and inventory. Buyers and Realtors are waiting for the right homes to come on market and moving those quickly while some homes continue to sit. There will need to be a continued strong downward trend in DOM and number of homes on market before there will be any rise in pricing.

When it comes to Market Action Index, all but the most expensive tier are in the seller range. The two quartiles in the middle are solidly in the seller’s advantage.

Overall in April, as we saw in March, buyers may still find some reasonable areas of selection in the top and bottom quartiles. But it is no means a strong Buyer’s Advantage. Right now, those two quartiles will continue to sell based on who is more determined to negotiate, the seller or the buyer.

One note: The Luxury Market has a low price point of $731,000 for all of Sedona. This price point normally averages closer to $1 million.

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.

Sedona Arizona 86336 Homes For-Sale

Report 4/18/16

Screen-Shot-2016-04-20-at-1.42.28-PM

First of all, as you research Sedona homes for-sale, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”. See the definition of Market Action Index (MAI) above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

Sedona 86336 is the heart of Sedona. There are two zip codes 86336 and 86351. These Market Reports will highlight 86336. In this zipcode, you will find the majority of the shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. It also includes a couple of 5 star resorts and the camping areas and mountain style living in the Oak Creek area heading toward Flagstaff. Sedona 86336 is basically areas such as the Chapel area, Uptown, West Sedona, the airport area and Red Rock Loop.

APRIL SEDONA REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

The Market Action Index continues to show a strong downward trend which started in March. The Median Price is continuing to stabilize in the top tiers but the bottom tiers are showing a slight upward trend.

In April, The Market Action Index has shown a strong decrease. The bottom quartile has dropped more significantly in April, about 7 points, then any of the other tiers. This generally is the fastest moving segment. The bottom half of the market is still a seller’s market but has weakened overall. The luxury market has slowed and the MAI is affecting the top half of the market, which gives the advantage to the buyer. If you are a serious buyer, you may be able to take advantage of market conditions.

So far in April, there is only one additional home in the 86336 inventory. So there is no significant change. The MAI is trending down and the Days On Market is trending up which indicate bearish signs for the market. See all the stats associated with each blue market link below the “Characteristics per Quartile“ Chart.

The DOM has increased approximately 3 weeks for the Luxury market and the bottom half of the market increased more than a month. The Upper/Middle quartile is the only quartile with a small 2 day increase. That quartile is the lower luxury range. the homes in the $400,000 to $699,999 have jumped by 26 in the last 2 months. This has definitely been the largest growing area for listings in 86336.

Looking to the future: The last 2 summers have seen a similar trend in the fall of DOM in all segments. This would indicate that the market is most active in purchases April, May, and early June. Our schools recess for the summer break in mid May. What that means is that homes are being purchased in the Spring and early Summer and as the homes close in July, the inventory DOM starts to fall.

If you are considering a purchase, you should consider your options now.

Village of Oak Creek Homes for sale

MARCH VOC MARKET HOMW 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.

These 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.

The March VOC market homes has seen the DOM (days on market) moving upward for the past few months. This trend reversed itself in March. DOM has dropped about 3.7% since February. As expected during this time of year, the inventory levels are starting to move upward.  which is providing a weak push upward on the Market. In Sedona 86351 which is basically areas east of Bell Rock, median prices are showing a slight increase after holding the line for several months. Always use the median price to track trends.  The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. In the current chart, the highest priced home is well over a million dollars from last month driving the average price of homes up substantially. This is a good example to show the difference between what the median and average mean.

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

The Market Action Index has turned around for all but the top tier.  Pricing continues to be relatively stable.  The MAI for the top Quartile was moving down sharply but has tapered off. It continues to move downward but at a much slower pace. Inventory is down slightly and so are prices which figures into the slower downward trend for the Market Action Index.   

For the other 3 quartiles, inventory is down just like the top quartile but the lower quartiles are showing a slight rise in pricing but the average DOM are mixed in the quartiles.  The bottom quartile is showing an increase in DOM. Homes in this bracket tend to sell faster which is still holding true. But the DOM is inching toward the other brackets. 

Overall, buyers may still find some reasonable areas of selection in the top and bottom Quartiles. But it is no means a strong Buyer’s Advantage. Right now, those two quartiles will continue to sell based on who is more determined to negotiate, the seller or the buyer.

One note: The Luxury Market has a low price point of $731,000 for all of Sedona.  This price point normally averages closer to $1 million.

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 March Cornville Homes Market Report will highlight Zip Code 86325.

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

The report analysis in March for Cornville homes continues to see the DOM (days on market) moving upward since summer of 2015. However, three of the four quartiles are slowing down with the bottom quartile decreasing slightly. We are currently in the ‘on-season’ and should show improved sales activity. The inventory levels have been decreasing since the same time period of last year, which is providing a neutral push on the Market. Historically many sellers start preparing their home for sale this time of year. So inventory levels may increase in April.  There is one less house on the market than in February. 

Overall, buyers may find some reasonable areas of selection in the top quartile, but the other three quartiles are still in the seller advantage range. Though the MAI is dropping. Remember that though it is mostly a seller’s market advantage, there may properties that present a better sales position based on the motivation and willingness of the seller to negotiate.  This market is basically in a neutral push. Prices and inventory are holding steady however the DOM (Days On Market) are moving upward causing the MAI to show a downward trend. 

One note: The Luxury Market for Cornville currently sits at a price point of $549,000 and above. 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.

Sedona Real Estate In the Spring ~ Picture Time

Posted by On

Sedona Real Estate

Spring In Sedona Arizona 86336

Say It With Pictures!

Sedona real estate is enhanced by the blooming of flowers and cactus in the Spring. It is even better when there is plenty of rain that soaks the winter ground and readies the seeds of wildflowers.  We do have a lot of green trees all year long but to see the wildflowers enhancing the landscape with their beautiful color is something special to see.

Generally, you have to give loving attention to cactus.  There is a  chance of too much water and sometimes a freeze can take it’s toll.

This Spring, like last year, started early.  By the first week of February the weather had changed. We can always expect a cold snap here or there. But by the first week of April, those conditions in most seasons, have passed.

Sedona Arizona 86336 Homes For-Sale

Report 3/14/16

Sedona AZ Homes for sale Market Profile

First of all, as you research Sedona homes for-sale, these are real time charts that tell us “How the market is doing”.  See the definition of Market Action Index  (MAI) above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

Sedona 86336 is the heart of Sedona. There are two zip codes 86336 and 86351. These Market Reports will be highlight 86336. In this zipcode, you will find the majority of the shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. It also includes a couple of 5 star resorts and the camping areas and mountain style living in the Oak Creek area heading toward Flagstaff. Sedona 86336 is basically areas such as the Chapel area, Uptown, West Sedona, the airport area and Red Rock Loop.

MARCH SEDONA REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

Unlike in February, when the prices were moving up and the inventory was lower, March is showing a different trend.  The Market Action Index is showing a strong downward trend. The Median Price is starting to soften in the top 2 quartiles even though the bottom 2 quartiles are showing a slight upward trend. More of the weighted average is in the upper quartiles. This is one of the reasons I compare all 4 quartiles.   

As stated above, each quartile in The Market Action Index has shown a decrease. The top and bottom quartiles have dropped about 3 points each, while the 2 middle quartiles have dropped 7 points respectively.  This indicates that the market is moving closer to the advantage of the buyer in the bottom half of the Sedona 86336 market. Whereas the top half of the market shows a heavy advantage toward the buyer.  If you are a serious buyer, now is the time to purchase a home.

Generally the market conditions will become more active as it pushes into Spring. March and April seem to be the months that sellers put their homes on market and buyers start looking. Looking at the inventory which also affects the MAI, there are 15% more homes on market.  The only sector that has shown a decrease is homes priced under $399,999. See all the stats associated with each blue market link below the “Characteristics per Quartile Chart.

Sedona homes for sale in the bottom 2 quartiles are showing signs that Days On Market DOM are leveling off and slightly falling which could indicate those segments are becoming more active.

Looking to the future: The last 2 summers have seen a similar trend in the fall of DOM in all segments.  This would indicate that the market is most active in purchases April, May, and early June.  Our schools recess for the summer break in mid May.  

If you are considering a purchase, you should consider your options now.
