Sedona Market Overview

January Infographic Luxury Homes for sale

Using an infographic to tell about the Sedona Market Overview is an interesting way to pack in a lot of information into a fun graphic. There are a few points of interest that many customers have told me are important to them. The weather, outdoor activities, and being able to see those little dots in the night sky we call stars.Using an infographic to tell about the Sedona Market Overview is an interesting way to pack in a lot of information into a fun graphic. There are a few points of interest that many customers have told me are important to them. The weather, outdoor activities, and being able to see those little dots in the night sky we call stars.

This particular infographic shows the entire Sedona market. It includes, Sedona, Village of Oak Creek (VOC), Big Park and Pine Valley.  It encompasses both zip codes, 86336 and 86351.

Over the past few months, the Sedona Real Estate Market has seen a rise in the Market Action Index which uses an algorithm that takes in recent trends and current stats to create the index and answers the question “How’s the market doing“. Basically, the market currently has a weak buyer position. In many of the price points, there are few homes to see and homes priced right do not stay on the market long. In fact there are many homes that are getting multiple offers because of the lack of inventory. You can see that pricing has risen sharply in 2017 alone. The market is already very active and I am sure this Spring (for Sedona Springs starts in February) will be very active.

Check out this Infographic and let me know what you think.

Sedona Heritage Museum – is the homestead of Will and Annie Jordan. Going back quite a few years, there were 12 other farmers who filed a suit alleging crop damage due to the smelters sulfurous smoke of the United Verde Mining Company located in what is now Clarkdale Arizona. Eventually the farmers finally were paid for their loses and Will Jordan bought land where the Sedona Heritage Museum now sits. Over the years Will’s son Walter bought out his father’s share of the land. They farmed Apple trees and grew grapes to make wine. This museum started out as one room and the other rooms were added over time.   
Sedona Heritage Museum

The Sedona Heritage Museum is considered the “Caretakers of Sedona’s History”. Once you visit the museum and outbuildings, you will agree that much of the early history is located throughout the acreage of this museum.

There is a whole wall of journals in one of the offices where anyone can go in and do research of the history of the founding families. Material is everywhere, and if you enjoy early Arizona settler history, this is a treasure trove of data, exhibits, background and notes.

The barn houses the first Sedona Fire truck as well as  hundreds of other antiques used in Sedona, yesteryear. There is even one of the teal colored “M” s that McDonalds had to use in a historic first for the company.

This is another angle of the barn showing the back of the very first Sedona fire truck. On the left hand side is a 45 foot “Apple Grading Machine”. Walter Jordan installed this right here in 1952. The sign continues with “He sold it in 1976 but it was unused for 18 years….It was restored to operations condition by Ray Anderson, an SHS member.”

Do A Few Things Right and Embrace Real Estate with Irrational Optimism!

Posted by On

Ask The Right Question…

Why Do You Want To Be A Sedona Real Estate Agent? 

As I am sure happens with you, many say they want to be real estate agents. They are looking for advice on how to get started.

Most people have no idea what it takes to be a successful real estate agent. They just like what they see. So I always ask the question “Why do you want to get into real estate?

This can be answered many different ways and it really depends on the answer how I proceed with my advice.

If I get an answer like – I want to make a lot of money or I want to be just like that agent with the fancy car and expensive jewelry like I see on that Millionaire Real Estate TV show, then I do everything to get that impression out of their head. There will be nothing but frustration and disappointment when they don’t see that big check roll in the first month!

Every market is a little different and it depends on how much you have to pay for your desk and what the broker’s cut will be.  I usually tell someone that they should plan on having $20,000 on hand for all the costs involved to start your own business. This is where the rubber meets the road. Most back out at this point. They just assumed that you show a couple of million dollar houses and then a check is cut for $30,000. …It does not happen that way!

 

I did do a few things right when I started…

Marketing Ads

 

First, I had the reserves needed for start up costs and there are many. I also knew a thing or two about marketing. I was able to secure a great price for weekly ads in our local Kudos Magazine that is delivered to every house in Sedona and Village of Oak Creek. People knew my name and my face!

My husband also understood marketing and had a passion for building websites and learned to be a professional real estate photographer…so he built me a website that was responsive and had an IDX platform. Basically, it showed up correctly on a monitor, iPad, or a smart phone. I had this website the week I started.

Coming from the staffing industry, I knew that interviewing with many different brokerages was very important. I felt that I had to fit in. I wanted to be with a company that had brand recognition and support.

 

Irrational Optimism

 

Irrational OptimismI learned fast that it really helps if you have a mentor who can guide you through everything that school doesn’t cover….and there is a lot! I had no mentor. But as a person with irrational optimism, a life long self starter and a sales person, this did give me an edge and I also had passion and real estate experience.

I managed apartment buildings; bought and sold many of my own homes and I even re-negotiated mortgage rates by challenging low appraisals with my own comps located in the area I lived in.

I never questioned if I made the right choice only why I waited so long to get started! I started my career during the great recession in 2011. Sedona still was not out of it. Many pros had left and gone on to other jobs. My passion, irrational optimism, and love for real estate kept me going. This wasn’t a job. It was what I loved to do. …..I enjoyed getting up in the morning!

Other areas that helped me along the way include:

  • Educational Opportunities – take as many classes as you can. One of the best courses I attended was Master Certified Negotiation Expert. You use these skills in every negotiation with a buyer or seller.
  • Join Organizations
    • Network as often as you can – Build Relationships with clients, other agents, and all support services.
    • Help your community – volunteer in an organization you love
  • Of Course, spend time on ActiveRain – participate in blogging and commenting – You will learn a lot from experienced REALTOR®s

In Conclusion… 

Become the “Choice” in your market. Be steadfast and embrace the future of real estate with irrational optimism. Innovative thinking creates innovative solutions tailored for every buyer and seller in your market. Set the standard for business values, based on the concept of World Class Service and exceptionalism. Your goal should be to exceed the needs of your clients and be the real estate agent of choice in the market for today and tomorrow.

Hiking Jordon Park During Magic Time

Uptown Sedona Arizona

Hiking Jordon Park

Magic Time

Hiking Jordon Park during “Magic Time” is a very special treat. In my opinion, “Magic Time” is that time just before sunrise and just after sunset. The sun is just below the horizon and the spectrum of light is diffused through the atmosphere. The red light has the longest visible wavelength of light so it easily gets through the thick atmosphere layer just below the horizon. It can bounce through the atmosphere and not lose very much of it’s strength. This is what makes “Magic Time” so special in Sedona. The crimson color in our red rocks is saturated with the red light and images may actually look imaginary only because the red color is deeply saturated and captured and frozen in time.

As the sun continues to move through twi-light, our mind “sees” the changes in real time. This progression is very short. A photographer can lengthen the “Magic Time” by adjusting the aperture setting of the lens. This can also be done in post-rpoduction. A photographer who uses a professional camera that has a wide range of aperture, ISO and shutter speed which is also called “the exposure triangle”, can increase the ability to capture a low light image well past what an average eye can see.

The Golden Hour 

Often times, “The Golden Hour” and my opinion of “Magic Time” are interchanged. “The Golden Hour” is usually the time right after sunrise and right prior to sunset. This is where the sun is still above the horizon and the yellow spectrum of light is most visible. It allows the yellow wavelength to add a golden hue to the image. It is also why sunrises and sunsets are so dramatic.

 

This map gives you an idea where the above image was captured

Why Are Sedona New Construction Costs Skyrocketing?

Posted by On

Sedona New Construction Rising At Alarming Rate!

Sedona New construction Rimstone West Sedona

Lumber Costs Rising

SEDONA NEW CONSTRUCTION – I recently had a conversation with a very prominent builder in Sedona who puts out a quality home product. In the course of our conversation, he told me that he was very concerned with the cost of lumber and the availability.  His costs have gone up 25% since the weather or hurricane disasters that we recently experienced.  In addition the recent fires in California will be adding to the lack of inventory and rising cost. This has not even been figured in yet!

After doing additional research, I found that builderonline.com referenced an article from Calculated Rick Finance & Economics that lumber random lengths are up 25% from a year ago. CME, which is a Futures Exchange, states that lumber futures are up 45% year-over-year. 

New Custom Homes Are Still Available In Sedona Arizona

In the Sedona area, lumber costs are affecting our builders on new home construction. There is a small amount of land and lots available in Sedona proper. This limits home construction to one build at a time. Generally speaking, with all the costs involved, a resale home is a better deal. You just can’t build a home for what a resale home will cost.

New Development Construction Is Flourishing In Sedona’s Outlying Communities

But there are other areas such as Cottonwood, Cornville and Clarkdale that have seen large areas being developed by one or more builders. These new homes can be considered semi-custom builds and are becoming more attractive to those who just can’t find the resale home that fits their needs. 

Buyers Need To Consider

Typical lumber costs are between 60%-70% of the home building costs. Labor costs the other 30% to 40% (costowl.com). With building costs continuing to rise, buyers need to consider the pluses and minuses of buying new. Normally, Lumber costs vary at different times of the year, but these disasters have stressed the lumber market.

Pluses For Purchasing New

  • Did I mention the home is brand new!
  • If bought early, you pick out the finishes.
  • You may be able to custom design it – bump out a wall, add an extra garage, etc.
  • Modern open floor plans – some have 2 master suites.
  • You get a builder’s warranty – remember it’s brand new!
  • All appliances, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roof, etc. is all brand new!

Pluses For Purchasing A Resale

  • You can negotiate price much easier than on new homes. Seller may be motivated.
  • Generally, you get more for the money.
  • Mature landscape and possible hard-scape is already done.
  • You know exactly what you are getting – it is already complete!
  • Neighborhood is established.
  • You may get quality amenities that are absorbed in the negotiation.

Also check out my blog on steel construction:

“Why You Should Select Steel Instead Of Wood For Your new Home Construction”

Steel Construction in Sedona

PLEASE NOTE:

Always remember that as a buyer considering new home construction, you should be represented by a buyer real estate agent. Seller agents are there to represent the builder/seller and protect those interests.  As your buyer agent, I will be there to represent your interests and negotiate on your behalf. Give me a call to see how I can help you with your real estate needs.

Final December 2017 Cottonwood Market Conditions

Final 2017 December Cottonwood Homes for sale market conditions

 

Final December 2017 COTTONWOOD MARKET HOME 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.

To analyze the Cottonwood AZ Market Report, An understanding of the city is helpful. It is about a half hour south of Sedona and located off highway 260 and the 89A. Cottonwood is known for it’s big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center. This is very appealing to many who need to be near medical facilities, doctors and other professionals. 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!

These Cottonwood AZ Market Reports will highlight 86326

As a bedroom community of Sedona, Cottonwood can be very appealing to many people. Cottonwood also has big box stores such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart and a large Fry’s Supermarket.

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.

How the Market is Doing 


Median Price 

The Median Price has remained at $289,500 overall from November. The top bracket has dropped an additional $13,000 from November couple that with a drop of $49,500 in the last two months and you can see that buyers might appreciate the $62,500 savings!. There is very little change in the 3 other tiers.

Interactive chart below will continue to show current market information

Inventory

Inventory has decrease a lot from November. The number of homes available this year is much lower than last year.  Fall selling season is over, and the median price in the top tier has continued to decrease. Low inventory generally favors the seller, but I do not see an upward pressure in pricing at this time.  New home construction is affecting the overall market. The new home prices are reasonable and many are taking advantage of placing their own stamp on this construction. Builders will provide a semi-custom home at an additional reasonable cost to the buyer. I strongly suggest the buyer is represented by their own real estate agent who will represent your interests. The selling agent represents the builder.

Days On Market (DoM)

The Market Action Index – The MAI in 3 out of the four quadrants continues to show a strong sellers market.  The overall MAI is trending lower at 35.7 points from November.

Large Chart


Bottom Line

Cottonwood is in the seller zone and but a buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate in the top quartile.  Homes are not staying on the market long in the other quartiles. There is about a 4.3 month inventory of homes (which is a 2 day drop from last month. The Fall selling season is over and and that is reflected in the in the Market Action Index. Serious buyers may be able to negotiate during the holiday period. 

Luxury Market of Sedona

One note: The Luxury Market has a price point of $865,000 for the top 10% in Sedona. This figure is based on the last 6 month’s of sold listings for all of Sedona. For Cottonwood, the top 10% of active listings starts at $650,000 – (an increase of $50,000 over November 2017).  This just gives you an idea of how the active market of Cottonwood compares to the market in Sedona. FYI – the median price in Sedona 86336 is $825,500. 

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


 

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.

The Market Action Index is showing has shown a downward trend because the inventory has increased. However actual inventory is still low for this zip code.  Basically, buyers should take note of this and understand that because of the low inventory the seller may not be as willing to make concessions.  Also,  scrutinize the Days on Market (DoM). The higher the number, the buyers negotiation power will increase in most cases. Buyers should be ready to purchase or they may lose out on the sale. The “Push Pull” point for supply and demand is an MAI of 30. Above 30 is a seller’s market.  The breakeven point is around 6 to 7 months supply of homes (condos) on the market.

Bottom Line

 The lack of inventory and higher single family home prices is putting upward pressure on the condo market. Many buyers are looking for the convenience of lock and go residences that are maintained by associations (HOA) at a reasonable price. Sellers have the edge in the market. Prices should continue to rise so be ready to make a purchase with little to no discount off the sales price.

What you will notice first are Crimson Red Rocks of Capital Butte and Thunder Mountain. June Market Crimson View homes for sale

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 those homes. The Stupa and trails leading to Sugarloaf Mountain are close by and easy to access.

December Market Report ~ Big Park – VOC MARKET HOMES FOR SALE and MARKET ANALYSIS for 2017  – 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.

2017 Big Park VOC Market report

 

2017 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.

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. 

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

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 Sedona 86336 market is poised for a 2018 take off. The median price has dropped slightly, however this is December!  Right now, I think that buying power has increased but this will not last as we head into the first quarter of 2018. Buyers should continue to look at Days on Market. The higher that number, the better chances that they may be able to negotiate a discount depending on the seller. If you find a home you really want, buy it! My best guess is pricing and negotiating power is going to be a hindrance for buyers moving forward.

The Sedona Weather – Year In Review…

300 Days of Sunshine! 

Sedona Weather – Tracking “sunshine” as a statistic, was not easy. One has to be cognizant of the weather each and every day. To be accurate, this statistic needs to be recorded on a daily basis. My husband decided to take on this project for one year to see how accurate the claim was. Many areas that boast high tourism and lots of sunshine claim this statistic. But there was an inner curiosity to either prove or disprove the claim in Sedona. So the tracking began.

As the year progressed, the days with sunshine were definitely going to be over 280 but 300 might be a stretch.  As it turned out, the lack of rainfall and more days of high pressure contributed to the credibility of the claim that Sedona does have 300 days of sunshine!  Learn more about all the weather statistics from Sedona-Weather.com. Our weather station has records and statistics that go back to 2011 in many cases.

If you are interested in learning more about the Sedona real estate market or Sedona-Lifestyle.com, please give me a call or visit my website. Many people move here because of the pleasant outdoor weather which is present all year long.

Sedona weather White Christmas

Winter 2016-2017

In 2016, Sedona weather precipitation was almost 26 inches of rain and 12 inches of snow. This is the most on record in the 7 years of tracking history of the weather station at the Cottages of Coffeepot. At Christmas, most people want a White Christmas. We were fortunate to get our first White Christmas which was very exciting and really capped off the year. It is extremely rare to see freezing conditions. The days warm up and our sunshine will melt ice and snow rather quickly. Some snow will stay in areas that get no sun at all. Don’t be cavalier though. Winter conditions may cause ice in some area so be careful when driving or walking.

Winter – “Early” Spring 2017

The rain continued through the first 3 months of 2017.Sedona weather spring Another 7 inches dropped through March of 2017. When others are starting to get cabin fever, Spring had already started near the beginning of February and continued through the beginning of June. So discussing the “winter months” of January and February get mixed into the spring months of late March and April! The trees start blooming in early February. Our winter is more like most of the country’s winter.

With all the rain, Spring 2017, was really beautiful. Trees, shrubs and plants were blooming for many months. The temperature was very pleasant. There were only 23 days below 50º in the first 3 months of the year, (2 more days in December), normally the coldest months of the year. No days were below freezing for a high and only 8 days were below 40º. All but 1 came in January. Twenty-two out of 90 days dipped below 32º, and there was another 20 days in November and December that dipped below 32º as well.

Since our weather is very dry with little wind, you can put on a sweater and be comfortable if you are out running errands. The high in January 2017 was 67º. We did get 4.25 inches of snow in January. If you are staying outside for a significant amount of time without going indoors, a hat, gloves and a winter jacket may be appropriate.

 

Summer 2017

Sedona weather - summer monsoonWe had 23 days over 100º in summer. Fourteen days came in June. June generally has very little to no rain. Monsoon does not normally show up until the second week of July. The clouds and rain cool down the afternoon temperature. From July 10th to September 3rd, there were no days over 100º.

Lack of Humidity

Again, I can’t emphasize this enough. We have very little humidity, even during monsoon. This makes higher temperatures less noticeable and why we tell people to drink lots of water. It is easy to get de-hydrated. When there is less moisture in the air, no matter what season you are in, you do not feel the heat or the cold. This is one of reasons people like our weather so much. You can enjoy the seasons without the discomfort of feeling the weather.

The hottest day of the year was 110º. The heat spell lasted 13 days. But, once it was over, the days didn’t even reach 100º. There was only one other day in early September that went over 100º. The first day of 100º plus temps. was 6/16/2017. The last day of 100º was 7/9/2017, (other than 9/4/17 which was only one day). We did get about 6.5 inches of rain during monsoon in July and August.

Fall 2017

Every season is beautiful in Sedona.sedona weather - Fall Aspens FlagstaffThe climate is mild but you actually get the seasons. Fall is no different. There is color through out the season. It starts in Flagstaff with the Aspens in early October and the change of color meanders down Oak Creek Canyon until you get to Sedona proper.  Fall brings out the visitors from near and far to enjoy the crisp air and beautiful color. The picture below is Oak Creek Canyon taken from Midgley Bridge. Visitors should plan months ahead for accommodations.  If you enjoy hiking, get to your area early or risk walking extra miles before you reach the trailhead.

The Sedona Real Estate Experience Is All About YOU!

The Sedona Real Estate Experience Is All About You!

Weddings are a time that we celebrate the couple. After all, it is all about them and the start of their life together and their future journey.  
No Magic Formula

The same is true for you, the Sedona real estate client. There is no magic formula that tells us how we can make our journey as trouble-free as possible. But a good REALTOR® can help navigate the journey with you in mind. It takes real flair to be able to make it look easy and make the experience … all about you!

 

Listening Skills Are A Priority

 

One of my foremost traits is the ability to connect with people. I genuinely care for people and want to share my love of real estate with all my clients and customers. I will listen to your request and concerns and you will find that not only do I LISTEN to what you say, I put what you say into effect! My enthusiasm for real estate is contagious and the more you see me in action, you will realize the choice you made was the right one.

 

You Are In Control

 

The experience is all about YOU! It is not about your REALTOR® or anyone else. You are the one who will be buying or selling the property. No one else matters. I get this. You will find that I will help you and work with you anyway you see fit. I will be your best advocate as I represent your interests. Your REALTOR®’s goal should be to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. If nothing else, your REALTOR® should make the process transparent and be able to smooth out the ebb and flow of each wave that the real estate process brings.

 

What Makes Me Different and Better?

 

I am a REALTOR® who can solve even the most complex challenges of home-buyers/sellers by providing specific, creative solutions and I am a Master Certified Negotiation Expert (MCNE®). Out of 40,000* plus Arizona real estate agents, there are only 204 total MCNE® REALTOR®s and only 5 in Sedona and the Verde Valley. *Numbers will vary because of licensing & certification requirements.

You can learn more about me at http://SheriSperry.realtor or go to the “About Sheri” menu item in the header.  I can help you.  Get started today! Contact Sheri

New Construction Clarkdale AZ – CLOSED – Last Work Day of 2017!

Posted by On

Last Day of 2017 – CLOSED – New Construction!

Mountain Gate

Clarkdale Arizona

Mountain Gate subdivion

New Construction – Newgate Homes built a charming neighborhood in the community of Mountain Gate, Clarkdale Arizona. Besides single family homes, large townhomes were also available. 

Clarkdale is located between Sedona and Jerome and only a few minutes from Old Town Cottonwood, the Verde Valley Medical Center and big box shopping.

My buyer, who was relocated to this area during the summer found this townhome and knew her children would love it.  Jen is a single mom who knew she could count on me to make her move as transparent as possible during her travels back and forth from Colorado to the Cottonwood area.

This townhome was supposed to be ready back in October, but construction challenges contributed to the late date. It wasn’t until last week that the Certificate of Occupancy was delivered!

The builder found another townhome for my client to live in and moved all her furniture when her current home was available. Newgate Homes also was very generous with closing costs and other upgrades.

This was the largest Townhome in the community at 2404 SF and 5 BD with 4 Baths!  It is also an end unit!

Sorry…Builder is sold out!  I can find you comparable homes just contact me!

Sedona Winter Solstice – Shadows of the Solstice in Red Rock Country

Posted by On

Sedona Winter Solstice

Cottages At Coffeepot Winter Solstice

This Sedona image above was taken on the Winter Solstice this morning. Over the years I have watched and compared the shadows created by the sun as it rises in the morning.

Today I took this image of Coffeepot Rock and noticed something different that I didn’t realize before. There are no real shadows on the red rock. The sun is at it’s south-eastern most point today and the shadows are very slight.

The back wall of our home which is glass, is perpendicular to the sun on this date. Starting tomorrow the sun will appear to be moving back to the north. I was pretty sure I had an image of Coffeepot on the Summer Solstice and decided to compare. Below you can see the difference of the shadow on the rock.

Coffeepot Rock on Summer Solstice

In the image above taken in 2013 on the Summer Solstice, you can’t even tell that there is “spout” or beak at the very top because there is no shadow to define it!

See the images below to compare the definition of the rock.

The image above is a scan of an original picture taken by a relative visiting in 1962. This is a movie set – before homes ever existed in this site. The picture was pirated by a “nostalgia” post card company prior to watermarking!

Every one of these images is of the same red rock formation. I hope you enjoyed them!

Desert Botanical Gardens – Las Noches de las Luminarias

Posted by On

Desert Botanical Gardens 2015

During the Christmas and holiday season many local programs and events take place for our enjoyment. This is one of those events that thousands of hours of preparation went in to make it one of the most magical of the holiday season. There are actually 2 events currently going on right now at the Desert Botanical Gardens.

For one entrance fee, you can see both during the holidays. The events are the “Las Noches de las Luninarias, loosely translated into “The Night of the Lights”, and Bruce Munro is presenting “Sonoran Light”. This will be an ongoing event after the holiday season up until May 8, 2016. See more information at Desert Botanical Gardens website.

Sedona Coldwell Banker Christmas                                                                               There are hundreds of miles of fiber optics laid in specific patterns that glow with different colors at different intervals. These patterns run all the say to the top of the hill. As you look at the display from below, the hill appears to be alive with color and slow dancing light that is magnificent to watch unfold.

One can only imaging how long this took to construct and how many people were needed during the creation of the exhibit.

Watch the video below to get a better idea of how beautiful the two exhibits work together to provide a night of extradinary wonderment.

We came down from Sedona, a two hour drive to see this. It was well worth the time spent to fit this in our business schedule.

Get Into The Christmas Spirit Sedona Style Via Scottsdale!

Posted by On

It’s Time To Write Out Your Christmas List! Were you naughty or nice? Kids will enjoy writing their list to Santa. 

Christmas At the Fairmont Princess!

Lobby at the Princess

Want to get into the Christmas Spirit? 

My husband and I always go to Scottsdale-Phoenix area to get our fix of “big city” Christmas shopping – Scottsdale Fashion Square and Kierland Commons are my usual go to spots. But this year we had heard a lot about the Fairmont Princess and have never had a chance to see the wonderful lights. 

There is lots to see and do at the Fairmont Princess along with a couple of different light projection shows with Christmas music!

You have to valet your car and if you do not spend $75, the valet charge is $85.  

Plan to eat there or spend a total of $75. I recommend La Hacienda Restaurant! 

Get your ticket validated and the parking is free.
