Aug 2022 Flagstaff Market Report

 

 August Flagstaff Home Sales Slow Down, Posts 25% Decline Year  Over Year 

 

After a long stretch strongly favoring sellers, the market appears to be rebalancing at last. Inventory is continuing to grow – good news for buyers! – while home price appreciation slows.  Here's our latest update.

 

FLAGSTAFF HOME SALES

The US Existing-Home Sales Slipped 0.4% in August from July while Greater Flagstaff's housing market posted a 17.3% decline according to data provided by the Northern Arizona MLS. There was a total of 163 homes sold, 25.2% lower than a year ago.  This is the second lowest August since 2012.

"The softness in home sales reflects this year's escalating mortgage rates. Nonetheless, homeowners are doing well with near nonexistent distressed property sales and home prices still higher than a year ago," National Association of Realtors Chief Economist Lawrence Yun.

 

August 2022 Flagstaff Home Sales By Type

 

In the month of August, the Broaddus Properties Group Brokered by eXp listed and sold three properties in Flagstaff valued at over $2.7 Million. Last year we helped buy and sell 8 homes worth $4.8 Million+!

 

FLAGSTAFF MEDIAN HOME PRICE

Flagstaff Median Home Price & DOM Aug 2022

"The median list-to-sales ratio for this area is 103.1%." List to Sales Ratio is the percentage of the list price that the buyer paid for the property. 

Flagstaff's August median sold price declined 13.7% vs last month, however it is still up 5% year over year to $630,000, highest in more than a decade. Homes remained on the market for 56 days (median). This is slower than the 53 days we saw in July and the year prior.

"The market is still suffering the effects of unusually low affordability. Interest rates are much higher than they were at the start of the year and even if prices drop to the level they had in January, homes will still be less affordable due to these higher rates," 

Michael Orr of the Cromford Report.

AUGUST 2022 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2022 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales - 163 homes, down 25.2 % vs July 2021.

Median Sale Price - $630,000 up 5% vs August 2021, highest in more than a decade

Mortgage rates - The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate averaged 6.02% as of September 15, up from the first week when it averaged 5.89%. A year ago at this time it averaged 2.86%.

Longest days on market (SF): 818 days This is a single level, brand new rustic mountain home in Anazasi Ridge with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths

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 must be off the MLS for at least 90 days for the CDOM to restart, even if a different agent lists it. We report the average days on the 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 LUXURY HOME SALES

The luxury benchmark price for Flagstaff single-family homes is $975,000,  set by The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.  LUXURY BENCHMARK PRICE is the price point that marks the transition from traditional homes to luxury home.

Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice

Homes aren’t selling as quickly, and buyers are less pressured to bid well above asking price to secure their offer. 

"For many of today's buyers, the uptick in for-sale home options is taking away the sense of urgency that they felt during the past two years, when inventory was scarce. As a result of this shift coupled with higher mortgage rates, competition continued to cool in August, with listing price trends indicating that home sellers are noticing shoppers tightening their purse strings," said Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for Realtor.com®

 

At the end of August we had 48% more active listings compared to the same period last year, but still lower by 6% year to date compared to last year. 

 

IS IT A GOOD TIME TO BUY?

Though mortgage rates have steadily risen over the last few months, it may still be a good time to think about taking advantage of rising home inventories and buying a new home. 

Rental prices have continued to rise, and home building has yet to catch up to market demand, so there is no real way to avoid the rising cost of housing going forward. At least when you buy a home, you get to lock in a mortgage payment you can afford - and start building your equity, rather than your landlord's.

Flagstaff Home Seller Advice 

Seller sentiment has shifted, suggesting that today's homeowners feel like they missed the boat on peak pricing, while others could be concerned about the cost of buying their next home. 

Homeowners Top Reasons to Sell

“Although the increase in rates will continue to dampen demand and put downward pressure on home prices, inventory remains inadequate. This indicates that while home price declines will likely continue, they should not be large.” Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist

 

IS IT A GOOD TIME TO SELL?

YES! Inventory is still firmly in Seller’s Market territory. Flagstaff homes for sale under $800,000 strongly favors sellers with less than 3 months of supply. 

Waiting is unlikely to reveal better conditions. By the end of the year we could start to approach a more balanced market condition if inventory growth continues at the current level.

8 Strategies to Secure a Lower Mortgage Rate in Flagstaff

8 Strategies to Secure a Lower Mortgage Rate in Flagstaff

 

The US Mortgage rates have been on a roller coaster ride this year, rising and falling amid inflationary pressures and economic uncertainty. And even the experts are divided when it comes to predicting where rates are headed next.1

 

This climate has been unsettling for some homebuyers and sellers. However, with proper planning, you can work toward qualifying for the best mortgage rates available today – and open up the possibility of refinancing at a lower rate in the future.

 

How does a lower mortgage rate save you money? According to Trading Economics, the average new mortgage size in the United States is currently around $410,000.2 Let’s compare a 5.0% versus a 6.0% fixed-interest rate on that amount over a 30-year term.

 

Mortgage Rate
(30-year fixed)

Monthly Payment on $410,000 Loan
(excludes taxes, insurance, etc.)

Difference in Monthly Payment

Total Interest Over 30 Years

Difference in Interest

5.0%

$2,200.97

 

$382,348.72

 

6.0%

$2,458.16

+ $257.19

$474,936.58

+ $92,587.86

 

With a 5% rate, your monthly payments would be about $2,201. At 6%, those payments would jump to $2,458, or around $257 more. That adds up to a difference of almost $92,600 over the lifetime of the loan. In other words, shaving off just one percentage point on your mortgage could put nearly $100K in your pocket over time.

 

So, how can you improve your chances of securing a low mortgage rate in Flagstaff? Try these eight strategies:

 

 

1. Raise your credit score.

 

Borrowers with higher credit scores are viewed as “less risky” to lenders, so they are offered lower interest rates. A good credit score typically starts at 690 and can move up into the 800s.3 If you don’t know your score, check with your bank or credit card company to see if they offer free access. If not, there are a plethora of both free and paid credit monitoring services you can utilize.

 

If your credit score is low, you can take steps to improve it, including:4

 

  • Correct any errors on your credit reports, which can bring down your score. You can access reports for free by visiting AnnualCreditReport.com.
  • Pay down revolving debt. This includes credit card balances and home equity lines of credit.
  • Avoid closing old credit card accounts in good standing. It could lower your score by shortening your credit history and shrinking your total available credit.
  • Make all future payments on time. Payment history is a primary factor in determining your credit score, so make it a priority.
  • Limit your credit applications to avoid having your score dinged by too many inquiries. If you’re shopping around for a car loan or mortgage, minimize the impact by limiting your applications to a short period, usually 14 to 45 days.5

 

Over time, you should start to see your credit score climb — which will help you qualify for a lower mortgage rate.

 

 

2. Keep steady employment.

 

If you are preparing to purchase a home, it might not be the best time to make a major career change. Unfortunately, frequent job moves or gaps in your résumé could hurt your borrower eligibility.

 

When you apply for a mortgage, lenders will typically review your employment and income over the past 24 months.5 If you’ve earned a steady paycheck, you could qualify for a better interest rate. A stable employment history gives lenders more confidence in your ability to repay the loan.

 

That doesn’t mean a job change will automatically disqualify you from purchasing a home. But certain moves, like switching from W-2 to 1099 (independent contractor) income, could throw a wrench in your home buying plans.6

 

 

3. Lower your debt-to-income ratios.

 

Even with a high credit score and a great job, lenders will be concerned if your debt payments are consuming too much of your income. That’s where your debt-to-income (DTI) ratios will come into play.

 

There are two types of DTI ratios:7
 

  1. Front-end ratio — What percentage of your gross monthly income will go towards covering housing expenses (mortgage, taxes, insurance, and dues or association fees)?
  2. Back-end ratio — What percentage of your gross monthly income will go towards covering ALL debt obligations (housing expenses, credit cards, student loans, and other debt)?

 

What’s considered a good DTI ratio? For better rates, lenders typically want to see a front-end DTI ratio that’s no higher than 28% and a back-end ratio that’s 36% or less.7

 

If your DTI ratios are higher, you can take steps to lower them, like purchasing a less expensive home or increasing your down payment. Your back-end ratio can also be decreased by paying down your existing debt. A bump in your monthly income will also bring down your DTI ratios.

 

 

4. Increase your down payment.

 

Minimum down payment requirements vary by loan type. But, in some cases, you can qualify for a lower mortgage rate if you make a larger down payment.8

 

Why do lenders care about your down payment size? Because borrowers with significant equity in their homes are less likely to default on their mortgages. That’s why conventional lenders often require borrowers to purchase private mortgage insurance (PMI) if they put down less than 20%.

 

A larger down payment will also lower your overall borrowing costs and decrease your monthly mortgage payment since you’ll be taking out a smaller loan. Just be sure to keep enough cash on hand to cover closing costs, moving expenses, and any furniture or other items you’ll need to get settled into your new space.

 

 

5. Compare loan types.

 

All mortgages are not created equal. The loan type you choose could save (or cost) you money depending on your qualifications and circumstances.

 

For example, here are several common loan types available in the U.S. today:9

 

  • Conventional — These offer lower mortgage rates but have more stringent credit and down payment requirements than some other types.
  • FHA — Backed by the government, these loans are easier to qualify for but often charge a higher interest rate.
  • Specialty — Certain specialty loans, like VA or USDA loans, might be available if you meet specific criteria.
  • Jumbo — Mortgages that exceed the local conforming loan limit are subject to stricter requirements and may have higher interest rates and fees.10

 

When considering loan type, you’ll also want to weigh the pros and cons of a fixed-rate versus variable-rate mortgage:11

 

  • Fixed rate — With a fixed-rate mortgage, you’re guaranteed to keep the same interest rate for the entire life of the loan. Traditionally, these have been the most popular type of mortgage in the U.S. because they offer stability and predictability.
  • Adjustable rate — Adjustable-rate mortgages, or ARMs, have a lower introductory interest rate than fixed-rate mortgages, but the rate can rise after a set period of time — typically 3 to 10 years.

 

According to the Mortgage Bankers Association, 10% of American homebuyers are now selecting ARMs, up from just 4% at the start of this year.12 An ARM might be a good option if you plan to sell your home before the rate resets. However, life is unpredictable, so it’s important to weigh the benefits and risks involved.

 

 

6. Shorten your mortgage term.

 

A mortgage term is the length of time your mortgage agreement is in effect. The terms are typically 15, 20, or 30 years.13 Although the majority of homebuyers choose 30-year terms, if your goal is to minimize the amount you pay in interest, you should crunch the numbers on a 15-year or 20-year mortgage.

 

With shorter loan terms, the risk of default is less, so lenders typically offer lower interest rates.13 However, it’s important to note that even though you’ll pay less interest, your mortgage payment will be higher each month, since you’ll be making fewer total payments. So before you agree to a shorter term, make sure you have enough room in your budget to comfortably afford the larger payment.

 

 

7. Get quotes from multiple lenders in Flagstaff.

 

When shopping for a mortgage, be sure to solicit quotes from several different lenders and lender types to compare the interest rates and fees. Depending upon your situation, you could find that one institution offers a better deal for the type of loan and term length you want.

Some borrowers choose to work with a mortgage broker. Like an insurance broker, they can help you gather quotes and find the best rate. However, if you use a broker, make sure you understand how they are compensated and contact more than one so you can compare their recommendations and fees.14

 

Don’t forget that we can be a valuable resource in finding a lender, especially if you are new to the home buying process. After a consultation, we can discuss your financing needs and connect you with loan officers or brokers best suited for your situation.

 

 

8. Consider mortgage points.

 

Even if you score a great interest rate on your mortgage, you can lower it even further by paying for points. When you buy mortgage points — also known as discount points — you essentially pay your lender an upfront fee in exchange for a lower interest rate. The cost to purchase a point is 1% of your mortgage amount. For each point you buy, your mortgage rate will decrease by a set amount, typically 0.25%.15 You’ll need upfront cash to pay for the points, but you can more than make up for the cost in interest savings over time.

 

However, it only makes sense to buy mortgage points if you plan to stay in the home long enough to recoup the cost. You can determine the breakeven point, or the period of time you’d need to keep the mortgage to make up for the fee, by dividing the cost by the amount saved each month.15 This can help you determine whether or not mortgage points would be a good investment for you.

 

 

Getting Started

 

Unfortunately, the rock-bottom mortgage rates we saw during the height of the pandemic are behind us. However, today’s 30-year fixed rates still fall beneath the historical average of around 8% — and are well below the all-time peak of 18.45% in 1981.16, 17

 

And although higher mortgage rates have made it more expensive to finance a home purchase, they have also eliminated some of the competition from the market. Consequently, today’s buyers are finding more homes to choose from, fewer bidding wars, and more sellers willing to negotiate or offer incentives such as cash toward closing costs or mortgage points.

 

If you’re ready and able to buy a home, there’s no reason that concerns about mortgage rates should sideline your plans. The reality is that many economists predict home prices to continue climbing.18 So you may be better off buying today at a slightly higher rate than waiting and paying more for a home a few years from now. You can always refinance if mortgage rates go down, but you can’t make up for the lost years of equity growth and appreciation.

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Update- July 2022

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Data Provided by The Broaddus Properties Group Brokered by eXp / by Joselyn Uy

July 2022 Flagstaff Market Report

 

 July Flagstaff Home Sales Second Lowest in 10 Years

 

The good news: Mortgage rates are down from its June high. Some recent potential home buyers who were pushed out of the market may now be able to get back in and qualify for a mortgage. Here's our latest update.

 

FLAGSTAFF HOME SALES

The US Existing-Home Sales Retreated 5.9% in July while Greater Flagstaff's housing market posted a 17.9% decline from June according to data provided by the Northern Arizona MLS. There was a total of 138 homes sold, 36.1% lower than a year ago. This is the second lowest total reported in July since 2012.

"The ongoing sales decline reflects the impact of the mortgage rate peak of 6% in early June," said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. "Home sales may soon stabilize since mortgage rates have fallen to near 5%, thereby giving an additional boost of purchasing power to home buyers."

 

July 2022 Flagstaff Home Sales By Type

 

In the month of July, the Broaddus Properties Group Brokered by eXp listed and sold three properties in Flagstaff valued at over $1.7 Million. Last year we helped buy and sell 12 homes worth $10 Million+!

 

FLAGSTAFF MEDIAN HOME PRICE

Flagstaff Median Home Price & DOM July 2022

"The median list-to-sales ratio for this area is 102.6%." List to Sales Ratio is the percentage of the list price that the buyer paid for the property. 

The median sold price in July is up 19.7% year over year to $730,000, highest in more than a decade. Homes remained on the market for 53 days (median). This is much slower than the 43 days we saw in June and the 44 days we saw a year prior.

The National Association of Realtors is predicting around a 5% correction on home prices that starts in Q4 of this year and extends into Q1 of next year. According to the latest forecasts, experts are confident prices will continue to appreciate this year, although at a more moderate rate than they did in 2021. Median prices are expected to shoot back up around 9% in Q2 of 2023.

JULY 2022 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2022 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales - 138 homes, down 36.1 % vs July 2021.

Median Sale Price - $730,000 up 19.7% vs July 2021, highest in more than a decade

Mortgage rates - Average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rate ended 8/18 at 5.5%. Rates peaked at 6% in June. Now we are seeing a lot of volatility. It can change rapidly during the day, and massively from week to week even though they can also be very boring for months on end.

Longest days on market (SF): 641 days This is a brand new home in Pine Canyon with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths

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 must be off the MLS for at least 90 days for the CDOM to restart, even if a different agent lists it. We report the average days on the 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 LUXURY HOME SALES

The luxury benchmark price for Flagstaff single-family homes is $975,000,  set by The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.  LUXURY BENCHMARK PRICE is the price point that marks the transition from traditional homes to luxury home.

Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice

Homebuyers may be in a better position to move now. If you tapped out earlier this year due to the extreme bidding wars it is a great time to go back on your home search and work in a much less competitive environment.

If you already own a home, you’ve likely built-up significant equity, and that can help you fuel your next move. Whether you want to downsize, move closer to loved ones, or buy a home in a dream destination, your equity can help get you there. It may be some (if not all) of what you’d need as your down payment on a home that better fits your changing needs.

Northern AZ Housing Inventory

End of July we have 36% more active listings compared to July 2021. However, comparing 2022 to 2021 year to date, inventory actually declined by 4%.

Flagstaff Home Seller Advice 

The market is cooling off but we are still on a seller market. It's time to reset expectations to days on market. Heading back to school and into fall, days on market has the tendency to grow even more. Sellers late to the market in the summer months are more likely to spend longer on the market, make price reductions and sell at lower prices than spring sellers.

Are you worried home prices are going to decline? Many experts raised their forecasts to say they’ll continue to appreciate in most markets this year. They are confident the housing market will see ongoing appreciation because of supply and demand in most markets. As Bankrate says:

“After all, supplies of homes for sale remain near record lows. And while a jump in mortgage rates has dampened demand somewhat, demand still outpaces supply, thanks to a combination of little new construction and strong household formation by large numbers of millennials.”

"We're witnessing a housing recession in terms of declining home sales and home building," Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist. "However, it's not a recession in home prices. Inventory remains tight and prices continue to rise nationally with nearly 40% of homes still commanding the full list price."

The market might be slowing, but it is still a very good time to sell your home. If these trends continue, now may be your last chance to sell near peak demand and get the most for your home.
