Seller Zone

Cottonwood is in the seller zone overall and median prices continue to show increases.   Keep your eye on the MAI . The top quartile is the only one in the buyer zone has moved close to the 30 mark. At least 3 points higher than last month.  The seller position has weakened since the summer months but is moving higher once again.


Buyers may find some relief in the top quartile.  The homes in the top range, do not compete well with the more desireable location of Sedona. This may be the reason that this zone is not moving well. There may be some deals to be had in the other 3 quartiles as well.  The median price of homes may be causing some of the flux in the other indices because of the stronger position of median price, over the last few months. The median price of homes is continuing to show stronger gains and shows no sign of weakening.
