Cottages At Coffeepot June 2019 Market Report


Cottages At Coffeepot Closed listing June 2019 Market Report

Summary

Cottages At Coffeepot June 2019 Market Report. This is the most activity I have seen in this small community for many years (10 sold in 2016-17-18). However, no Cottages At Coffeepot have sold so far in 2019. There are four listings on the market currently (6/2019) compared to only 2 last year. The market does favor the buyer at the present time.

A Unique Gated Community

Each of these townhomes is very unique. They have custom floor plans, different lot sizes and each view is different. Courtyards and garden areas vary as well.  Many of the luxury townhomes have been updated to varying degrees which makes pricing price per square foot a challenge. It takes an experienced REALTOR® who knows the Cottages At Coffeepot very well to position these luxury townhomes.  In the same spirit, a Cottage experienced real estate agent can help buyers when it comes to negotiations with the seller. I have owned a Cottage since 2003 and have 16 + years of history with this community. I can help buyers and sellers get the best value for these special townhouses.

Cottages At Coffeepot Are Maintained With Your Safety & Aesthetics in Mind

 

Cottages At Coffeepot June 2019 Market Report

Looking For That Lock and Go Sedona Lifestyle? 

The Cottages At Coffeepot West Sedona is a gated community for those who want a lock and go lifestyle. The community has a full-time groundskeeper who maintains the front landscaping of each home.  There is only one way in and one way out and it has a security gate to maintain your privacy and safety.  The Cottages are very safe.  Because the Cottages sit over a mile off the main highway (89A) and are tucked in at the foot of the forest preserve, there is little traffic that is not accounted for. Though there are neighbors on either side of each townhome, privacy is maintained very well. You have to see it to believe it!

Designed For Low Maintenance and Relaxation

There are 34 homes and generally 10-12 full-time residents who live in the Cottages while other residents travel to other homes based on the season.  Some spend summers here and others spend their winter months in this community.

Heated Pool May Through October 

One of the unique features that residents enjoy at the Cottages is a heated swimming pool that is available from late April May through October.  The pool area sits higher than most of the luxury townhomes and has a great view of the surrounding red rocks.  (See video above)

Coffeepot Rock

Straddling one of the famous rocks in Sedona. ..Coffeepot Rock, the pool is located right below. From the main street of the 89A, it looks just like the old percolator coffee pot, but as you move around the rock, it can take on another appearance of a “Standing Eagle” a name given to the rock by the Native Americans who inhabit the area.

Luxury Amenities

Besides the pool, you can play a set of tennis anytime you choose at the tennis courts located right below the pool area.  If you decide you want some fresh air and a nature walk, there are trails by Coffeepot that lead to Boynton Canyon to the west and Jordan Park to the east.  The Seven Pools and Devil’s Kitchen are a 10-15 minute walk right outside of the community.  There are Jeep trails also that you can take to get to those features. Just make sure you have the required permit and a narrow rock climbing vehicle to get you back there! If you can’t make it comfortably through the very first obstacle right out of the parking lot, do not attempt to go any further!

Cottages At Coffeepot June 2019 Market Report

Gated Community

You enter the community from the top of the hill and the monument lights meet the dark sky requirements.  These monuments throw a soft light down onto the pavement and each townhome has one or more in front of their home.

Green Grass

As you can see, there is green grass where you might expect rocks and desert plants.  Most of the community has grass in front of the townhomes. However, the HOA is considering modernizing the landscaping in increments as needed to bring a fresh young look to the complex.

Cottages At Coffeepot June 2019 Market ReportThe picture to the right is looking down from Teacup Trail which hugs Coffeepot Rock. As mentioned before, there are 34 units.  Two of these units sit on two lots. Most of these luxury townhomes are two and three units to a building. Each unit has some sort of courtyard in the front and a backyard garden area.

Many Properties Border Forest

Half of the community borders the forest. Many units have built-in BBQs and all have a slab patio front and back.  Those units that sit on the east side of the street have a view of Coffeepot Rock from the front of the townhouse. All in all, each luxury townhome is unique and special.

The Cottages At Coffeepot Architecture Is Timeless & Built To Last 

The architect is a prominent local resident who built quality homes that still remain timeless today. Don Woods designed more than 200 local homes including Junipine Resort in Oak Creek Canyon to Heartline Cafe and the Sedona Racquet Club according to Sedona Monthly Magazine. This article was back in 2006. I am sorry to say that Don Woods recently passed away. A Don Woods home may start to appreciate in the future because you can’t commission a project anymore. Don Woods was a wonderful man who will be missed by the entire community.  His projects carry his legacy forward. I can recognize one of his projects as soon as I see it.

Fortunately, the builder is still active in the community.  He is Phil Morris.  Currently, he has a multi-million dollar project about 3 minutes from the Cottages located right on Soldier’s Pass. Again, Phil Morris provides a quality product that a home owner can be proud of.

The Cottages – Affordable Alternative In Soldier’s Pass

The Soldier’s Pass area of Sedona is one of the more pricey areas in Sedona. The average home price in Soldier Pass right now is over $1,650,000.  On the other hand, The Cottages At Coffeepot sit on some prime property at the very end of Soldier’s Pass and offer a more affordable alternative choice of living in a luxury setting.

Cottages At Coffeepot June 2019 Market Report

Just 4 Minutes Away…

 

 The Soldier’s Pass Location Is 4 Minutes To Shopping & Dining

 

The location is far enough away from the main highway traffic to relish the quiet solitude of nature.  Surrounded by pine and juniper trees, your Cottage is nestled deep into nature yet you can enjoy the peace of mind knowing you are located in a gated community that looks after it’s own residents.  

A recent study has shown that living within a mile of a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s increases the value of your home. The Whole Foods of Sedona is right at the beginning of Soldiers Pass just 3 minutes away.  

Medical & Professional Services Are Just 4 Minutes Away

A question often asked is “How far are the medical facilities located?”  The intersection of Soldier’s Pass & SR 89A is the start of all the businesses located in Sedona.  Besides the Whole Foods at that corner, there are two banks, restaurants and professional services which include, doctors offices, eye care, dentist and lawyer’s offices as well as other professional services. Within 5 minutes of that corner are all the services you may possibly need.  If you need any specific questions answered please reach out to me through my cell phone or email.

If You Are Selling Your Sedona Home or Cottage At Coffeepot

You can find a number of sites that will provide you with an ‘estimate‘ of what your home is worth.  These sites use public records and algorithms to determine an ‘estimate‘. They must also publish their ‘error rate’ as well. The human factor is left out of the equation in these estimates. I live in this community and can give you a more accurate picture of what your home or townhouse will sell for.  This is what I do for a living.

Snow in Soldiers Pass West Sedona Late May 2019!

Sedona-Weather.com


Sedona Weather May 2019

Sedona Weather Summary May 2019

Sedona weather for May 2019 had below average temps and more rain than normal. This continues to indicate an El Niño condition.  We had no additional days of 90º. In fact, last year at this time we had 15 days over 90º. This is a welcomed relief. Our average temp was was 1º higher than April at 59º. We also got snow flurries for a 5 minute stretch of time!  Memorial Day was the chilliest on record at 61º!  Normally we are around the high 80ºs or low 90ºs. 

 Days with Sunshine

Considering the El Nino season, we had another month at  .85 of rain. The rain affected the “Days with Sunshine”. For the year we are at 117 and should be at 125 days at the end of May.  That happened on 6 different days throughout May. There were only 8 days between 80º≤ 90º and 15 days between 70º ≤ 80º.  

Another month of perfect weather. The air conditioner has yet to be used this year. No other year have we gone this long without using the AC. 

 

sedona weather May 2019 Precipitation

May 2019 – Coolest Since Recording Temps

May was one of the coolest that we have experienced since we have lived in Sedona.  It may very well be in part because of El Niño conditions were still with us in May. Normally there is a weather shift from storms coming from the north shifting to the south creating monsoon conditions in July.  The official monsoon starts on June 15th and goes through the month of September.

 

sedona weather may 2019 temperature

 

Coolest Memorial Day On Record

Last year we already experienced 15 days above 90º.  This year we have had only 1 day in April at 90º. Pretty amazing! On Memorial Day, the temperature was 61º. It was actually too cool to sit outside and enjoy the hamburgers we BBQed. However, we realized that this weather could change on any given day so we have been relishing this cooler than normal weather and feel blessed to have it.

Snow In Sedona During May… Really?

Posted by On

Sedona Snow – May 23rd – A Record

 

Will This Be Our Coldest May?

There was snow in Sedona during May!  I am still trying to wrap my head around this cooler weather. There were huge flakes lasting 5 minutes. The temp was 34º a little after dawn right here in Soldiers Pass West Sedona. This is the coolest May we have seen since 2015. No other year since 2010 has had a mean temp this low.

 

Crazy Stats for May 2019

Some crazy stats for May – Last year on May 23rd it was 88º – This Year 42º! Last year the rain total was .31 inches – This year 2 inches of rain so far. The average temp is 7º lower than last year and also lower than April of 2018 by 1º!

Last year, there were 43 days over 80º in April and May. This year 11 days. 15 of those days last year were 90º or more. This year…only 1 day hit 90º!

Cooler Weather is Good News!

We are very thankful for this cooler weather. Though it is very unusual, it is also welcomed.  Of course, we have to be prepared that all of a sudden a light switch will be flipped and it will be 90º.  We are not taking this weather for granted and know that any time now, things will get back to normal…..(I think!).

Pine Valley

 

A Distinctive & Unique Sub-Division

Pine Valley is a distinctive community located approximately 3 miles off the SR 179. It is nestled at the very end of Jacks Canyon Road.  Near the end of the road, there is a cattle guard and this welcomes you to Pine Valley.  Many residents in Sedona may not even know where Pine Valley is located. As you meander through Jacks Canyon on your way to Pine Valley, the drive becomes an exploration of the natural landscape that is from a time when our native ancestors roamed these lands.

 A Harmonious Community

Everything in Pine Valley has a contrasting, diverse and divergent nature to it. Yet all members of the community live in harmony because of their common or dare I say, not so common bond of the Pine Valley lifestyle.  When residents are asked where they live, they will reply “Pine Valley”. Pine Valley Sedona AZ 86351 Residents have such a strong bond to this area that there is a more untethered association with the Sedona region than other sub-divisions or areas. Even longtime residents of the Sedona area may have to ask where Pine Valley is located before they understand the connection. Each home has its own character that fits into the area.  You will generally find a limited number of homes available for sale. Many artists live in this area. They feel their creative energy flows well here.

This is an area where homeowners do not sell very often, so the inventory is low. When you find a home you like, you might want to give it serious thought.

History and Hiking Jack’s Canyon Trail

Jacks Canyon Trail got its name from Jack Woods, a railroad engineer stationed out of Winslow AZ.  He used to graze sheep in the late 19th century in this canyon. The trailhead starts right outside of Pine Valley at FR 793.  You have to pass Canyon Ridge Trail on the left side. Shortly after that is FR 793 and the trailhead is off of that road.   Also, you can easily access it from Mountain Rd in the Pine Valley subdivision.  Hot Loop Trail and Jack’s Canyon Trail start at this point. Hot Loop Trail takes you into Wood’s Canyon. Jack’s Canyon Trail is for experienced hikers only.  It is a strenuous hike that lasts a total of 9 hours.  There is no potable water so make sure you bring plenty in with you.Pine Valley homes for Sale with red rock views

From what I am told, you can see some of the best scenery in all of Sedona from the end of the trail. The elevation gets up to almost 7000 feet. You can see all the red rock formations (and much more) from there.  You will most likely see black-tailed jackrabbits, and cottontails scampering through the chaparral. There are Gambel’s quail and you will hear them cooing from their nests as you travel through. My favorites trees and shrubs are Arizona Cypress and twisted pine along with the mesquite and manzanita which are high desert favorites.

 

Pine Valley is considered Sedona with an 86351 zip code, yet the area’s identity is unique.

Quick Analysis – 2016 – 2017 – 2018 – 2019

The Pine Valley market sales showed a lot of strong activity in 2018 compared to other years. Sellers need to realize that buyers are getting anywhere from a 3% to 5% discount off of the purchase price. Again, 2018 was the best year at 3%. 2018 also had the lowest days on market (CDOM) at 96.  So far in 2019, only one home has sold but there are 2 pending.

There is a lot of inventory for this area. This means that buyers should be able to make a better deal with sellers willing to negotiate. I understand this market. I have had listings and sold buyers homes in this area. One home I listed was on market for one week before going into contract.

I am very experienced in this market and the builders and can be a valuable resource for buyers and sellers.

May Crimson View Homes For Sale and Market Trend

If you travel north from State Route (SR) 89A onto Rodeo Road and start heading up the hill, you will reach Crimson View, Western Hills sub-divisions along with Cedar Ridge, Sedona Arizona. What you will notice first are Crimson Red Rocks of Capital Butte and Thunder Mountain. August 2018 Crimson View Homes for sale and market trends

In the northeast, you can’t help but see Coffeepot Rock.  There are many homes with views of Sedona looking to the east. This area is elevated from SR 89A.

Off in the northwest, you might gaze upon Chimney Rock, but be careful not to take your eyes off the road!  It is easy to do with these beautiful views. It provides views that are not available from the main highway passing through Sedona business district.

Three Minutes to Shopping – Restaurants – Medical 

Speaking about the Sedona business district, just one more reason this area is a favorite among residents and buyers alike is that Crimson View sub-division is close to the business district.  At the bottom of the hill is the Safeway shopping center and numerous restaurants close by.  You will find an Urgent Care as well as other medical facilities and professional offices within another four minutes of the intersection of Rodeo Rd and SR 89A.

Close To Hiking Trails

There are many trails right above Crimson View. The Stupa and trails leading to Sugarloaf Mountain are close by and easy to access. I have been up to Sugarloaf and there is an amazing view of the landscape above and below. It is not a difficult hike but will clear your head and allow you to enjoy the reason you moved here in the first place!

Crimson View West Sedona Homes for sale

Quick Analysis – 2016 – 2017 – 2018 – 2019

The Crimson View home market sales showed a lot of strong activity in 2017 compared to other years. However, the one home that recently closed in May of 2019 shows a huge drop in Cumulative Days On Market. There is no inventory, so I suspect that homes will sell fast as they reach the Crimson View market and for a higher price per square foot. The discount off of list price dropped only .3%.  This is not a market you can wait around to see what happens. Homes are moving faster because they are positioned appropriately in the market place and sellers are adjusting their expectations. I am very experienced in this market and the builders and can be a valuable resource for buyers or sellers.

 928-274-7355 

I have had Scott provide this service to a couple of my luxury buyers and they were so pleased I had to check his service out for myself. Now, it should be noted that my grill is over 20 years old.  I never expected it to look brand new.  However, I couldn’t believe how good it looked after he was done.

Both my husband and I have spent hours cleaning this grill. If you don’t like cleaning the inside of your oven, cleaning a 9 burner grill is much more intensive! Believe me, “you don’t want to do it!”

 

Scott Thompson’s tagline is “Because YOU don’t want to do it!”. Scott provides a complete BBQ cleaning service that removes all traces of grease, fat, and carbon especially in places you can’t see. Scott is a courteous and respectful young man who provides all his own materials including tarps. Your BBQ Grill will look new again when he is finished.

Complete degreasing of the following areas: 

Hood

Wire Catch Pan

Control Knobs

Drip Pans

Rotisserie Racks

Igniters Pull-out Tray

Thermometer

Burners

Components deep cleaned in the mobile steam bath:

Grill Racks

Flavorizer Bars

Heat Plates

Inspection of the following parts:

Burners

Pressure Regulator

Igniters

Venturi Tubes

BBQ is polished after completion!

The cleaning and inspection process removes harmful carcinogens that can be transferred to your food. It prevents future corrosion and helps extend the life of your grill and protects your valuable investment.

Celebrate Rock Climbing and 4 x 4 Day in the Red Rocks of Sedona AZ…. Off Road!

Rock Climbing In Sedona AZ

Off Road Jeep Trails 

Courtesy of

Coldwell Banker Sheri Sperry Top Real Estate Agent

It is April 4th (4/4), and today we celebrate rock climbing and 4 wheel drive vehicles.  A lot of cars and SUV have AWD or all wheel drive. What this means is that the drive train can provide torque to all four wheels. Another way to describe it is “4 by 4” or “4 x 4” . This is the reason April 4th is the day we highlight 4 wheel drive vehicles and off road or rock climbing vehicles.  

In the video below, you will see pics that were shot from my husbands jeep in the Sedona or surrounding landscape.  The only other way to get to these sites is to hike there. A lot of the shots were taken on the Broken Arrow Trail on the way to Chicken Point.

Sedona Weather for March 2019

March Weather Category Summary

The month of March mirrored the saying “March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb”. Though it was not quite as warm as 2018, Sedona March weather 2019 was roughly a very similar temperature pattern. However, the leaves on our Japanese Maple tree are just coming in now! Last year the leaves started coming in the third week March.

At the beginning of the month, it felt like spring was trying to break through. Some days were in the 60ºs and some were not.  The low temps were the same.  Some days started out below 32º and others were above.  By St. Patricks Day, spring was breaking through. Flowers were in bloom along with the trees!  It was so nice to turn off the heater and open the windows to get that fresh air in.

Cornville/Page Springs/Verde Santa Fe – Arizona 86325

Vibrant Retirement, Golf, and Rural Communities

Cornville ~~ Page Springs ~~  Verde Santa Fe are bedroom communities of Sedona 86336 and Cottonwood AZ. As legend has it, back in the 1800s, the Verde Valley pioneers decided on the name Cohnville – named after one of the families that lived there. When the papers came back from Washington, they read it as Cornville and the pioneers accepted it. The 1880 Census could not find anyone named Cohn in the Verde Valley, however, there was a Mr. Cone who purchased a homestead in what is now called Page Springs.

The appeal for Cornville / Verde Santa Fe is growing among those looking at buying a home for sale. The direct route of the 89A between Sedona and Cottonwood makes it very convenient to access those areas. Cornville and Page Springs are growing suburban areas that serve as bedroom communities for nearby Sedona and Cottonwood, Arizona. Cornville and Page Springs are located along scenic Oak Creek.

A big factor that drives buyers to the Cornville / Verde Santa Fe is housing prices are very modest compared to Sedona 86336. Buyers find this a better fit for their needs.

The rural character of Cornville is important to residents. It is a key component of the articles of the Cornville Community Association: “The Corporation is organized exclusively for charitable, educational and scientific purposes to maintain and enhance rural lifestyles, natural resources, economic values, health and safety within the Cornville postal area.”

Because Cornville has a more rural appeal with a small town feel, there are large properties including ranches and agricultural based properties that are mixed into the neighborhoods with smaller residential homes. Cornville is not an incorporated city. Support services are provided through Yavapai county. The agricultural base also supports wineries which will be discussed more in Page Springs section.

Another draw to the community of Cornville is the proximity to Big Box shopping. There is a Home Depot, Fry’s and a Super Walmart close by in Cottonwood.  The Verde Valley Medical Center is also within a few minutes and is part of Northern Arizona Healthcare. There are many medical and professional services nearby that help support the medical center.

Cornville/Verde Santa Fe Has A Desert Feel

Without Constant Extreme Heat

Cornville Page Springs Market Report and homes for sale

Cornville/Page Springs/Verde Santa Fe is an area that is considered a semi-arid climate zone, just like Sedona 86336. It is about 1:05 hours north of the Sonoran Desert and about 30 minutes from the southern border of the Colorado Plateau.  Humidity is not a factor in personal comfort. Warmer and colder weather is less noticeable because of the lack of humidity. Another reason why staying hydrated is so important. Basically, an individual can tolerate much warmer and colder temperatures because humidity does not play a part. You can get detailed statistics at Weatherspark.com. For more information on Sedona weather go to Sedona-Weather.com.

Like Sedona, there is a mix of desert flora. The elevation of the area is about 3,451ft. The area within 2 miles of Cornville is covered by shrubs (74%), cropland (14%), and grassland (12%), based on Info weatherspark.com.

Time Change – See How It Affects Arizona and Hawaii

Posted by On

No Time Change in Arizona or Hawaii!

Arizona Stays On Mountain Standard Time (MST) All Year Long

Time Change? What time change? As the rest of the country prepares to “gain” or “lose” an hour of sleep,  Arizona and Hawaii will have a normal day as always.  No clocks are moved backward during Fall or forward during Spring. Arizona stays on Mountain Standard Time (MST) all year long. 

The current dates of the time change for most of the USA are as follows:  Clocks are set 1 hour forward on the second Sunday of March moving to Daylight Savings, while on the first Sunday of November, the clocks are moved back to Standard Time.

The One Exception…

The Navajo Nation observes Daylight Savings Time. This affects areas, especially in Northern Arizona.  So, they will be setting their clocks back with the rest of the country!

Island Territories Also Do Not Observe DST

Areas such as American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands also do not observe DST.  There are many states are considering staying on one particular time. It will be interesting to see what happens in the future! Most of the time there is a lot of grumbling going on but nothing changes. After a day or two everybody is in their new routine. Time Change - Arizona Mountain Standard Time

How Time Change Affects Arizona

For those of us in Arizona who deal across multiple time zones,  we have to adjust the time change in our head.  It can take a couple of days to a few weeks depending on how en-grained the previous time change across the country affected you.  Our national media adjusts their schedule and all our programming moves one way or the other.

 

Air Transportation May Change Schedules Due To Time Changes

Air or transportation travel schedules may also change. We missed a flight one time because we came to the airport too late to board the plane! We did not realize that the flight had been moved up an hour to accommodate the schedule of other areas with the time change.

Though our sleep pattern is not affected, there are other considerations that do affect the states and territories that do not observe DST.  One big consideration is to make sure all your computers and GPS related devices that sync up with the National Time Center. Do not check or uncheck Daylight Savings Time. Why? The time will automatically be adjusted in the device – whether it is a computer or a clock on a nightstand.  You will know by the switch located somewhere on the clock. 

Time Change - Arizona Mountain Standard Time

In My Opinion…

Personally, I am very fine with it being dark in the morning with a little bit more daylight in the evening in the winter. We get to sleep in the dark! By 7:15 am Sedona time, it is light enough to see and be outside if you need to be.  The sun may not rise until around 8 am but visibility is no issue. It is nice not having to worry about changing all the clocks! Even in the summer months, having sunlight at 4:30 am is fine with me because the weather is pleasant enough to be outside gardening or walking or hiking!

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 for January 2019

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.

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 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 backside 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.

February 2018 Market Homes for Sale in Village of Oak Creek VOC

 

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. The average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

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 the 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 that the seller is not willing to drop the price of the home. Keep that in mind when negotiating.

Days On Market

Days On Market – Overall, the DOM continues to trend to 197 currently.  Luxury homes that were selling in the summer months are continuing to go stale.. The average home is selling in 6.4 months. Homes in the top tier $2,199,000 sell in 10 months.

Large Chart


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.

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

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.
