5 Steps to Finding Your Next Flagstaff or Sedona Home

5 Steps to Finding Your Next Home


Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner, shopping for a new home can feel daunting. In fact, 56% of buyers said that “finding the right property” was the most difficult step in the home buying process.1

Buying a home is a significant commitment of both time and money. And a home purchase has the power to improve both your current quality of life and your future financial security, so the stakes are high.

5 Steps to Finding Your Next Home in Northern Arizona

Follow these five steps—and complete the corresponding worksheet offered below—to assess your priorities, streamline your search, and choose your next home with confidence.

STEP 1: Set Your Goals and Priorities

The first step to finding your ideal home is determining WHY you want to move.

  • Do you need more space?
  • Access to better schools?
  • Less maintenance?
  • Or are you tired of throwing money away on rent when you could be building equity?

Pinpointing the reasons why you want to move can help you assess your priorities for your home search. 

Don’t forget to think about how your circumstances might change over the next few years. Do you expect to switch jobs? Have more children? Get a pet? A good rule of thumb is to choose a house that will meet your family’s needs for at least the next five to seven years.Be sure to set your goals accordingly.


STEP 2: Determine Your Budget

Many financial professionals recommend following the “28/36 Rule” to determine how much you can afford to spend on a home. The rule states that you should spend no more than 28% of your gross monthly income on housing expenses (e.g., mortgage, taxes, insurance) and a maximum of 36% of your gross monthly income on your total debt obligations (i.e., housing expenses PLUS any other debt obligations, like car loans, student loans, credit card debt, etc.).3

Of course, the 28/36 rule only provides a rough guideline. Getting pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage BEFORE you begin shopping for homes will give you a much more accurate idea of how much you can borrow. Add your pre-approved mortgage amount to your downpayment to find out your maximum purchasing potential.

STEP 3: Choose a Location

When it comes to Flagstaff or Sedona real estate, WHERE you choose to buy is just as important as WHAT you choose to buy.

Do you prefer a rural, urban, or suburban setting? How long of a commute are you willing to make? Which neighborhoods feed into your favorite schools? These decisions will impact your day-to-day life while you live in the home.

Another important factor to consider is how the area is likely to appreciate over time. Choosing the right neighborhood can raise the profit potential of your home when it comes time to sell. Look for communities that are well maintained with high home-ownership rates, low crime rates, and access to good schools, desired retail establishments, and top employers.4

STEP 4: Decide Which Features You Need (and Want) in a Home

Start with the basics, like your ideal number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage. Do you prefer a one-story or two-story layout? Do you want a swimming pool? There are very few homes with pools because of Flagstaff's cool weather.

Keep in mind, you may not find a home with all of your “wants,” or even all of your “needs” … at least not at a price you can afford. The reality is, most of us have to make a few compromises when it comes to buying a home.

Some buyers will opt for a longer commute to get a larger, newer home in the suburbs. Others will sacrifice hardwood floors or an updated kitchen so that their kids can attend their desired school. 

If you’re faced with a tough choice about how or what to compromise in your home search, return to STEP 1. What were your original goals and motivations for moving? Reminding yourself of your true priorities can often provide the clarity that you need.


STEP 5: Meet with a Flagstaff/Sedona Real Estate Agent

A good real estate agent can remove much of the stress and uncertainty from the home search process. From setting goals to securing a loan to selecting the best neighborhood to meet your needs, we will be there to assist you every step of the way.

And no one has more access to home listings, past sales data, or market statistics than a professional agent. We can set up a customized search that alerts you as soon as a new listing you might like goes live. Better yet, we get notified about many of the hottest homes even BEFORE they hit the market.

You might guess that the VIP service we provide is very expensive. Well, the good news is, we can represent you throughout the entire home buying process at NO COST to you. It’s true; the home seller pays a buyer agent’s fee at closing. So you can benefit from our time, experience, and expertise without paying a dime. It’s no wonder 87% of buyers choose to purchase their home with the help of an agent.1

And although we’ve listed it here as STEP 5, the reality is, it’s never too early (or too late) to contact us about buying your Flagstaff/Sedona home. Whether you plan to buy today, next month, or next year, there are steps you can (and should) be taking to prepare for your purchase. Call or text 928.606.6749 or email

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Update- September 2019

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Data Provided by The Kelly Broaddus Real Estate Advisors Team / by Joselyn Uy


Sept 2019 Market_Stat_Flagstaff_RealEstate


Flagstaff Real Estate Market Finish Strong in September

The leaves may be falling, but home sales rose in September. The latest Northern Arizona MLS data shows that the peak selling season ended with a bang. Here's a quick update on the Flagstaff housing market. 


The US Existing home sales fell by 2.2% in September 2019 while the Flagstaff real estate market remained very strong. September housing sales in the greater Flagstaff region jumped 35% compared to the same month a year ago. There were 135 single-family houses sold in September, a new record high. Low mortgage rates are helped a lot to push sales numbers to new heights. 


Flagstaff September housing prices rose 12% with the median sale price coming in at $425K which represents a new high for the month. Prices for the 3rd ¼ and for the first 9 months also hit new highs. Here’s the breakdown.




September 2019 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2019 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales -    135 homes (SF),  35% vs September 2018. 

Median Home Price -  $425,000 (SF),   12% vs September 2018

Mortgage rates  - The average U.S. rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage was 3.61% in September after declining for 10 consecutive months, according to Freddie Mac. It was the lowest monthly average since April 2016 when it was the same. 

Longest days on market (SF):  1055 Days That's almost 3 years on the market! This listing is a Pine Canyon contemporary custom home under construction situated along the 18th fairway tee box with both golf course and filtered mountain views.

CDOM The acronym CDOM (Cumulative Days on Market) is used by the Flagstaff MLS to describe how many days a property has been available for sale. A property has to be off the MLS for at least 90 days for the CDOM to restart, even if it is listed by a different agent. We report the average days on market for properties sold based on CDOM.

The number of days a home sits on the market can tell us a lot about pricing. A high CDOM is commonly a strong indicator that the home is overpriced. 

Flagstaff's Priciest Homes SOLD in SEPTEMBER 2019

  • $2,500,000  - Forest Highlands luxury home, the "COMPS ONLY" remarks on the MLS show that this million-dollar mansion was sold off-market. This is the second most expensive home sold in 2019, next to 2558 La Serena in Pine Canyon.
  • $551,172  -  Last month's priciest townhome is another 3 bedroom townhome with luxury finishes in the Switzer Mesa/Ridge area boasting an oversized kitchen and 2 decks off the back
  • $400,000 -  3 bedroom move-in ready fully upgraded Aspen Shadows Penthouse suite in Flagstaff Ranch  with Peak and golf course views

The most AFFORDABLE  Flagstaff Homes Sold in SEPTEMBER 2019

  • $205,000 - "Tiny house on a hill", this one-bedroom in Kachina Village, a south rural area of Flagstaff  is the most affordable single-family Flagstaff home that sold in September
  • 175,000 - A 3 bedroom townhouse with 2 assigned parking spaces in Swiss Manor
  • 142,900 -  Timberline Place one bedroom upstairs unit with views close NAU, shopping, hiking, and minutes from downtown. 

Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice 

With increased sales, there are fewer homes on the market, and they’re selling at a higher price. Fall is a great time to buy and sell as people are motivated to make a move before the holidays, and mortgage rates are still in your favor. 

Buying a Home Can Be Scary Until You Know the Facts

If you’re looking to buy a home, now is a great time to lock in a low mortgage rate. It will shrink your monthly payment and could save you a bundle over the long term. Or if you plan to stay in your current home for a while, consider whether it makes sense to refinance your mortgage at today’s lower rates.

Move-up buyers, if you’re ready to trade in your starter home for something more luxurious, you may get the best of both sectors. We’re still witnessing a strong demand for entry-level homes, giving sellers the upper hand.

Luxury buyers, buyers of high-end homes are finding a greater selection (and more negotiating power) than they’ve had in years.

[Here's what you need to know about the mortgage process.]

As of October 26th, INVENTORY fell below 3 months for homes priced under $500,000. We saw an increase in buyer demand due to lower mortgage rates, but the supply available for purchase isn’t keeping up. If inventory grows, we might see lower prices.

Check out the latest list of Flagstaff homes for sale under $300K. There are 110+ houses available in the $300K to $400,000 range and 50+ houses available to purchase in the $400K to $450K range. If you’re buying at the lower price range, having fewer homes on the market could present a few challenges.

Flagstaff Home Seller Advice 

If you’re considering selling your home to move up, now is a great time to get a positive return on your investment in a market with low supply and high demand. Eager buyers are searching for their dream homes, so setting the right price for your house is one of the most important things you can do.

According to CoreLogic’s latest Home Price Index, home values have risen at over 6% a year over the past two years, but have started to slow to 3.6% over the last 12 months. By this time next year, CoreLogic predicts home values will be 5.4% higher.

With prices slowing from their previous pace, homeowners must realize that pricing their homes a little over market value to leave room for negotiation will actually dramatically decrease the number of buyers who will see their listing.

Is Your House “Priced to Sell Immediately”?

Impact of price on visibilityInstead of the seller trying to ‘win’ the negotiation with one buyer, they should price their house so the demand for the home is maximized. By doing so, the seller will not be negotiating with a buyer over the price, but will instead have multiple buyers competing with each other over the house.

The secret is making sure your house is Priced To Sell Immediately (PTSI). That way, your home will be seen by the most potential buyers. It will sell at a great price before more competition comes to the market.


If you’re thinking about selling now, let’s get started. From hiring the right real estate agent to handing over the keys, here is your step by step guide to the home selling process. Let’s get together to determine the specific options available for you and your family. Contact 928.606.6749 or email if you are looking for a Northern Arizona realtor to help you buy/sell your Flagstaff/Sedona real estate and the surrounding areas.
