October 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. 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 October 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.

The Market Action Index or MAI is up .3 to 28.1 Though, the top quartile is near a 24 MAI level which indicates a strong buyers market.  Currently the other 3 quartiles are at 32 or higher, with the lower/third quartile skyrocketing at least 7 points since last month!  This is in the seller advantage range for MAI. The 3rd quartile ($499,000) is at the highest point all year.  

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.

SEDONA 86351 – Village of Oak Creek / Big Park ~ October ’16 REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

Buyer or Seller Market? (MAI)

The Market Action Index – Three of the four quartiles in Sedona 86351 or Village of Oak Creek are in the Seller’s market zone with relatively low amount of inventory given the current levels of demand. It is not uncommon that the premium or luxury segment of the market takes longer to sell than the rest of the market quartiles. 


Inventory has been relatively steady but trending down overall since July.  However, the inventory has added 6 listings since September.  Many sellers tend to put their homes on market as the Fall selling season starts to reach it’s peak.  More homes on market means that buyers have a larger supply to choose from. 

Days On Market (DOM)

The properties have been on the market for an average of 212 days.  Half of the listings have come newly on the market in the past 154 or so days. The DOM is trending higher which goes hand in hand with a rise in inventory.

Bottom Line

Buyers may continue to find some reasonable areas of selection in the top two quartiles. Any reasonably priced home in the other two quartiles is not lasting on the market.  As a buyer, look to homes that have become stale on market to increase your odds at a equitable negotiation. This continues to be the norm for the market in this area. As activity increases during Autumn, focus on pricing and DOM to see what happens. 

Luxury Market

One note: The Luxury Market has a low price point of $900,000 for VOC.  This is a drop of $75,000 from September.

The Sedona Luxury Real Estate Professionals which Sheri Sperry is a past-president of defines the Luxury Market as the top 10% of the listings available. The Luxury Market is measured using 86336, and 86351 zip codes. The price point is at $1,500,000 for the top 10% of the market. This is a drop of $150,000 from the previous month .To learn more about these market reports please visit the Learning Center or visit Market Stats on my website.

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.


ABOUT ME: “Many buyers and sellers are skeptical about salespeople. So am I! But, I am not a typical salesperson. I put myself in your shoes and help you make decisions based on how I would want to proceed if I were you. In other words, what steps would I take and what is right for you? How will this transaction be beneficial for you? How will it help you move forward with your goals? How can I make it as smooth and pleasant as possible? What is in your best interests as we move forward?

Let’s face it, you won’t really know that I am not a typical salesperson until you get to know me. I am confident you will feel at ease and comfortable knowing I can find solutions for you. If you don’t feel that way, please let me know. I want to be the best I can for you. I am YOUR Solutions Realtor.” ~ Sheri Sperry
