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


May 2018 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 all brackets for the last 8 months. Currently, all four brackets are in the seller zone and rising.  However, This is where the Days on Market come into play for buyers. 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.
