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.

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.
