What’s Your Flagstaff Home Actually Worth? Discover What Buyers Will Pay in Today’s Market

Kelly Broaddus  |  eXp Realty  |  888.446.5602  | Contact Kelly

 

What’s Your Home Actually Worth?

 

As a seller, knowing your home’s worth helps you price it correctly when you put it up for sale. If you price it too high, it may sit on the market. But price it too low and you may be losing out on a good chunk of money (nobody wants that!). For buyers, it’s important to know a home’s worth before you make an offer. You want your offer to be competitive, but you don’t want to overpay for the property.

 

Even if you’re not a buyer or seller right now, as a current homeowner you might just be curious about the value of your home. Keeping track of your home’s worth year over year helps you understand the trends in your market. So when you are ready to sell, you can take advantage of a good window of opportunity.

 

The good news is, a trained real estate agent—who understands the nuances of your particular Flagstaff neighborhood—can determine the true market value of your property … and at no cost to you!

 

 

THE THREE TYPES OF HOME VALUES

 

When you start the process of buying or selling a home, you’ll frequently hear the words appraised value, assessed value, and true market value. It’s important to know the difference between each one so you can make better, informed decisions.

 

Appraised Value

A professional appraiser is in charge of determining the appraised value of a home. These appraisals are typically required by a lender when a buyer is financing the property. And while the lender is the one requiring this information, the appraiser does not work for the lender.1 Your appraiser should be an objective, licensed professional who doesn’t have allegiance to the buyer, seller, or lender—no matter who is paying their fee.

 

The number the appraiser comes up with (the appraised value) assures the lender that the buyer is not overpaying for the property. For example, imagine a seller lists a home for $400,000. They reach a deal with the buyer to sell the home for $375,000. However, if an appraiser evaluates the property and determines that the appraised value is actually $325,000, then the lender will not lend for an amount higher than that appraised value of $325,000.2

 

When figuring out this number, an appraiser will compare the property to similar homes in your neighborhood, and they’ll evaluate factors such as location, square footage, appliances, upgrades, improvements, and the interior and exterior of the home. 

 

Assessed Value

The assessed value of a home is determined by your local municipal property assessor. This value matters when your county calculates property taxes each year. The lower your assessed value, the less property tax you’ll pay.3

 

To come up with this value, your assessor will evaluate what comparable homes in the neighborhood have sold for, the size of your home, age, overall condition, and any improvements or upgrades that have been made. However, most assessors don’t have full access to your home, so their information is limited.

 

Assessments are done annually to determine how much property tax you owe. Many counties use a multiplier (typically between 60%-80%) to calculate the final assessed value. So, if the assessor determines that the value of the home is $300,000, but the county uses a 70% multiplier, the assessed value of the home would be $210,000 for tax purposes.4

 

If your assessed value isn’t as high as you envisioned, don’t sweat it. Many homeowners appeal their assessment in favor of a lower valuation so that they can save money on property taxes. If you’re interested in appealing your property tax assessment, let us know. We offer complimentary assistance and would be happy to help you build your case.

 

True Market Value

Market value is established by your real estate agent. It basically refers to the value that a buyer is willing to pay for the property. A good real estate agent is an expert in determining true market value because they have hands-on experience buying and selling properties. They understand the mindsets of buyers in your market and know what they’ll pay for a desirable house, townhouse, or condo.

 

As a seller, knowing your true market value is important because it helps you choose how much to list your property for. It can also help you decide if you want to make any improvements to your home before putting it on the market. Your agent can help you figure out which updates and upgrades will have the biggest impact on your true market value.

 

 

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH ONLINE CALCULATORS?

 

We have one. Check it out  here: https://www.northernarizonahomedeals.com/sell.php

When figuring out your home’s value, you might be tempted to see what popular real estate sites like Zillow, Redfin, and Trulia have to say. When you use an online calculator to determine your home’s value on these sites, it is just an estimate. It’s not an actual appraisal or the “true market value.” These sites all have their own algorithms for coming up with their estimates. For example, Zillow comes up with their “Zestimates” by calculating “public and user-submitted data, taking into account special features, location, and market conditions.” 5

 

These online estimates can be a great starting point for opening up the conversation with your real estate agent about your home’s worth. But even Zillow recommends that you use a real estate agent for coming up with the actual market value of your home. The site says that once you get your “Zestimate,” you should still get “a comparative market analysis from a real estate agent.”

 

Having an agent involved in this process is essential because they understand the market better than a computer ever could. They’re showing property in your city every single day, and they know the particular preferences of buyers and sellers in the area. Young professionals, large families, empty nesters, and other groups are all looking for different things in a home. A local agent has most likely worked with all of them, so they understand what every segment in your market is specifically looking for.

 

 

HOW AN AGENT FINDS YOUR HOME’S TRUE MARKET VALUE

 

So, how does an actual real estate agent determine true market value? They’ll start by doing a comparative market analysis (CMA). This means they’ll compare your home’s features to similar properties in your area. For the CMA, the agent looks at the below factors to influence their assessment of your home’s worth:6

 

  • Neighborhood sales - Your agent will look at similar, recently sold homes in your neighborhood to see what they sold for and what they have in common with your house.
  • The exterior - What does your home look like from the outside? Your agent will factor in curb appeal, the style of the house, the front and backyard, and anything else that impacts how the house looks to everyone walking and driving by.
  • The interior - This is everything inside the walls of the house. Square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, appliances, and more all influence the overall market value.
  • Age of the home - Whether you have a newer or older home affects the number your agent comes up with as part of their assessment.
  • Style of the home - The style of your home is important because buyers in different markets have different tastes. If buyers prefer ranch-style homes and you have one, then your home may sell for a premium (aka more money!).
  • Market trends - Because a local agent has so much experience in your market, they have their finger on the pulse of your area’s trends and know what buyers are willing to pay for a property like yours.
  • Location, location, location - This one’s probably the most obvious. Your agent will think about how popular the area is, how safe it is, and what schools are like.

 

A computer algorithm simply can’t take all of these factors into account when calculating the value of your home. The reality is, nothing beats the accuracy of a real estate agent or professional appraiser when it comes to determining a home’s true market value.

 

 

YOUR AGENT IS THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY

 

Determining a home’s true market value is a real estate agent’s forte. If you’re a seller, your agent will help you find your home’s market value so you can list it at the right price.

 

For buyers, your agent will help you determine the value so you can come up with a fair offer. Your agent can also set up a personalized home search on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for you so you’ll receive emails of listings that meet your criteria. This will help you see what’s out there in your city and how properties are being priced.

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Update- January 2019

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

 January 2019 Flagstaff Home Sales

 

Flagstaff 's Housing Market Chill in January, While Inventory Remain Light

 

I can't believe we're almost at the end of February! We hope your year had a great start. January is traditionally one of the slowest months in real estate. Here's how the Flagstaff real estate market kicked off. 

FLAGSTAFF SINGLE FAMILY HOME SALES

US existing home sales slipped for the 3rd consecutive month while Greater Flagstaff's January housing sales tanked. There were only 37 houses sold which is down 48% from a year ago when there were 71 sales. Here's why:

  • Part of the decline is due to the Government shutdown which delayed IRS income verifications, holding up mortgage approvals and delaying closings.
  • Bad Weather
  • Lack of affordable housing 

Flagstaff started its selling season with far less optimism than last year but with mortgage rates at 12-month low, better inventory as we go into spring and with the economy and the jobs sector doing as well as it’s going, we expect that spring's going to be a great market!

Mark Frantatoni

Meanwhile, with last year's deals finally closing last month, the Kelly Broaddus Team started 2019 off with a bang, bagging our highest January sales ever. The team sold 9 properties valued at $2.95M

FLAGSTAFF MEDIAN HOME PRICE

January housing prices for the greater Flagstaff area remained flat year-over-year, with the median sales price coming in at $374,500. If we consider single-family homes only, the figure is much higher at $390,000.

DOWNLOAD THE FULL FLAGSTAFF MARKET REPORT HERE

 

January 2019 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2019 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales -   37 homes (SF), down 48% vs January 2018. 

Median Home Price -  $390,000 (SF), flat vs January 2018, highest in more than a decade

Mortgage rates  - A 30 year fixed rate mortgage with 5% down and very good credit fell back to an average of 4.125

Longest days on market (SF): 696 days. A 5 bedroom, 2800 sqft home in Elk Run. Originally listed for $420K, this home stayed on the market for 23 months before it sold.

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 January 2019

  • $900,000  - A Pine Canyon luxury home is back to the top of our most expensive Flagstaff homes list. Million dollar homes usually dominate this group. Had to go back to our March 2017 report to see a home that sold less than a million dollars at #1.
  • $585,000  -  Last month's priciest townhome is a 3 bedroom new build in Flagstaff Ranch
  • $327,612 -   One of the 12 units in Miramonte's Dale Condominiums in the Flagstaff Townsite area

The most AFFORDABLE  Flagstaff Homes Sold in January 2019

  • Single-family - $71,900 - 2 bedroom fixer-upper on 10 acres in East Rural Flagstaff
  • Townhouse - $237,000 - Boyington Townhome located near Lake Mary
  • Condo - $130,000 -  Very rare Arbors studio unit listed by Kelly perfect starter or vacation home

 

Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice 

FOR BUYERS LOOKING TO BUY HOMES UNDER $500,000

If you are buying a home this spring, get pre-approved for a mortgage now. Mortgage rates, after hitting a seven-year high last September, have continued to drop and over the last month dropped yet another 1/8th of a point with a 30-year fixed rate mortgage now at 4.125% with no points. What you need to know about the mortgage process

Inventory levels remain light which is normal for this time of year. Currently, there are 60+ houses available in the $350K to $399,999 range and 40+ houses available to purchase in the $400K to $450K range. With demand for affordable Flagstaff homes exceeding supply, competition will heat up in the months ahead. Beginning your home search now could lead to a successful and less stressful buying experience.

Need a lender recommendation for your home loan? We work with trusted lenders who will walk you through the entire process and have your best interest at heart. Contact Kelly today and we will get you one of our trusted lender that best fits your needs.

 

Flagstaff Home Seller Advice 

Many homeowners believe that rising interest rates and home prices have scared away buyers and therefore have not listed their houses for sale. However, the truth is that buyers who were unable to find a home last year are out in force, and there are even more coming! 

 

Approximately one-third (32%) of Americans plan to purchase a home in the next five years. Millennials are most likely to have such a purchase in their five-year plan (49%), versus 35% of Generation X and 17% of baby boomers.

Top 8 Home Design and Remodeling Trends for 2019

Top 8 Home Design and Remodeling Trends for 2019

 

If you’re a current Flagstaff homeowner, or in the market to buy, you’re probably curious about the latest trends in home design.

 

Sellers who make strategic updates before listing their Flagstaff property can generate increased interest from buyers and, in some cases, a premium selling price. And buyers should consider which features of a home will need updating immediately (or in the near future) so they can factor renovation costs into their overall budget.

 

Even if you have no immediate plans to buy or sell, we advise our clients to be thoughtful about the colors, materials and finishes they select when planning a remodel. Making over-personalized or unpopular design choices could hurt a home’s value when it does come time to sell. And selecting out-of-style or overly-trendy elements could cause your renovation to feel dated quickly.


To help, we’ve rounded up eight of the hottest home design trends for 2019.

Keep in mind, not all trends will work well in every house. If you plan to buy, list, or renovate a Flagstaff/Sedona property, consult a professional who can help you realize your vision and maximize the impact of your investment.

 

  1. WARMER PAINT COLORS


White and grey aren’t going anywhere, but expect to see warmer tones and more earthy neutrals popping up in 2019. Cold whites are being replaced by warmer, softer whites. And warmer tones of grey have become a popular alternative to the cooler grays we were seeing earlier in the decade. Dove grey—with a lilac undertone—is a particular favorite with designers this year.

 

Sherwin Williams chose Cavern Clay, a warm terracotta, as its 2019 color of the year, while Behr selected Blueprint, a mid-tone blue. Benjamin Moore’s selection is Metropolitan, a sophisticated grey.

 

If you’re preparing to sell your Flagstaff home, consider a light, neutral paint color. Neutral colors provide a blank canvas upon which a buyer can envision placing their belongings, and lighter colors make a room appear larger and brighter.

 

  1. MIXED METALS

 

Don’t feel limited to using one metallic finish throughout your home—or even throughout a single room. Designers are mixing metals in 2019, and their favorites include copper, brass, pewter, gunmetal, and matte black.

 

Experts suggest picking one metal hue to dominate your color palette and a contrasting tone to complement it. If your room has a warm color palette, choose a warm-hued primary metal, such as brass or copper. For cool palettes, choose a cool-toned metal, like pewter or stainless steel. You can also experiment with mixing finishes, such as polished and hammered copper.

 

From faucets to cabinet pulls to accent pieces, swapping out your old or dated fixtures is an easy—and relatively inexpensive—way to modernize your decor. Mixing metals add depth and give your room a more curated look.

 

 

  1. OUTDOOR ELEMENTS

 

Bringing outdoor elements into the home can help warm up a sterile space. And natural materials can soften a modern design aesthetic.

 

Homeowners are increasingly looking for ways to incorporate these materials throughout their home. Especially popular right now: stone, copper, concrete, and wood. From concrete showers to agate stone tiles, designers are finding unexpected ways to bring the outside in.

 

One notable exception: granite countertops. Engineered quartz—a combination of ground quartz and resin—overtook natural granite stone as the most popular countertop material in 2018. This durable, low-maintenance, highly-customizable product has won over homeowners and designers alike.

 

 

  1. ALTERNATIVE APPLIANCES

Stainless steel has been the industry standard for years, but the market is trending toward variety and fresh alternatives. Homeowners have more options available than ever to personalize their kitchens with vibrant colors, black stainless, or modern white appliances. Another favorite? Integrated appliances that blend seamlessly into cabinetry. Built-in column refrigerators, which allow you to customize the design and size of your freezer and refrigerator, are becoming a “must-have” in high-end homes.

 

Advancements in technology have also brought a new wave of appliances to the market. Induction cooktops are replacing commercial gas ranges as a gourmet favorite. And french door ovens and steam ovens are also gaining in popularity—especially ones with smart features you can control from an app on your smartphone.

 

 

  1. COLORFUL KITCHENS

 

White will always be a classic choice, but color is finally coming back to kitchens. More homeowners are choosing cabinets in alternative neutrals like black, cream, and grey, along with colorful options like green and blue. Also popular? Wood cabinets in stains like warm chestnut and fruitwood.

 

Two-tone kitchen cabinets remain a homeowner favorite, as well. To incorporate this trend, try pairing darker lower cabinets with lighter upper cabinets or a colorful kitchen island with neutral-colored perimeter cabinets.

 

  1. OPEN SHELVING

 

Swapping upper kitchen cabinets for open shelves continues to be a popular choice in 2019. It’s a cost-effective update that can make a kitchen feel larger and brighter. However, it’s not a practical option for everyone. Before you commit, test it out by removing your cabinet doors for a few weeks. See how it feels to have your glasses and dishware on display.

 

Not ready to give up all your upper cabinet storage space? Replace just one or two upper cabinets with open shelves for a lower-commitment but still-updated look.

 

 

  1. STATEMENT TILE

The ubiquitous white subway tile is finally fading in popularity. In 2019, homeowners are gravitating toward more colorful choices, creative textures and finishes, and alternative shapes. Especially hot right now: hexagons, arabesques, diamonds, and Moroccan fish scales.

 

Natural stone remains a favorite, including marble, quartzite and river rock. But advancements in porcelain tile that mimics stone, and even concrete, has made it an attractive, affordable, and low-maintenance alternative. 

 

  1. SHOWCASE CEILINGS

 

Once an afterthought, ceilings are taking center stage. While 2018 was all about statement walls, statement ceilings are shaping up to be the darling of 2019. Designers are using bold paint colors, wallpaper, intricate moldings, fabric, and other materials to transform a ceiling into something truly special.

 

Want to incorporate this trend without going too bold? Choose a classic design, like coffered or wooden beams. Or stick with wood paneling or tin tiles for a more timeless look. Even something as simple as painting a ceiling the same color as the walls can make your space feel more modern.

Flagstaff AZ Real Estate Market Update- Year End 2018

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

 Year End 2018 Flagstaff Home Sales

 

December 2018 Flagstaff Home Sales Decline, Prices Up

I hope your year is off to a great start! US Existing-home sales declined 6.4% in December, according to the National Association of Realtors®, after increasing for 2 consecutive months. Flagstaff home sales are down for the month, quarter and year. Here are our latest figures. 

FLAGSTAFF HOME SALES 

2018 housing sales were slightly down but the quarter and especially the monthly sales number tanked.

  • Month: In December there was 67 single family home sold, down 28% from the same month a year ago.
  • 4th Quarter: sales are down by 10% 
  • Year-to-date sales are off by 1%compared to last year.

If this trend continues, expect home prices to begin to pull back. The Kelly Broaddus Team ended the year with 60 homes listed and sold, valued at over $21M.

FLAGSTAFF HOME PRICE

2018 was a record-setting year with housing prices hitting new highs for the year, the 4th quarter and for the month of December. Median price, the value where half sold for more, while the other half sold for less, more accurately reflects market conditions compared to the average sales price. 

Month: December housing prices in the greater Flagstaff region rose 1% with the median sale price coming in at $379K which is a new record high for the month of December. The previous high was set back in December of 2006 when the median sale price was at the lower $379K level. 

4th Quarter: New high at $390,000, up 5% vs last year

Year: For calendar 2018 the median sale price of a house sold in the greater Flagstaff area was $385K beating the old high of $379K set back in 2006. 

INVENTORY

Housing supply traditionally shrinks at this time of year, so the choices buyers have will be limited. Inventory level for starter homes is down a bit vs last month and is still far from what is needed to satisfy the demand for affordable/starter home where homebuyer demand is strongest. 

  • $200k- $400K, inventory is 15% lower vs last month, less than 3 months supply. It's a seller's market at this price range. A balanced market has 6 months supply of homes for sale. 
  • $400K- $500K, down by 15%, 3 months supply. 
  • Above $500K, we have over 6 months of supply. No shortage here. Oversupply is highest at $1.2M - $1.3M with 22 months inventory

If you’re buying at the lower price range, having fewer homes on the market could present a few challenges. Don’t worry! I can help you come up with a strategy to find your next home. Let's talk about your situation in person! Call Kelly at 888.446.5602.

WHAT'S AHEAD FOR FLAGSTAFF REAL ESTATE

I'm sure you're wondering what the year is going to be about. With so much uncertainty in the stock market right now, many of our clients are naturally concerned about where the housing market is headed in 2019. Fortunately, the real estate market has some good news to offer.

 

Economists expect sales levels to stabilize in the coming year and for home values to continue rising, although at a more modest pace than we saw earlier in the decade.

 

We’re committed to delivering the truth to our clients, whether it’s positive or negative. And the reality is, much like the stock market, the real estate market will experience ups and downs. 

 

But people will always need a place to live and raise their families, and the majority of them will want to do it in their own home. Experts remain confident that the real estate market will continue to offer a path for Americans to build wealth over the long term … and we wholeheartedly agree.

 

If you’re concerned, or just curious, you should check out our blog, that answers the question: What’s Ahead for Real Estate in 2019?

2018 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales-   67 homes, down 28% vs December 2017. 

Median Home Price-  $379,000 up 1% vs December 2017, highest in more than a decade

Mortgage rates up - A 30 year fixed rate mortgage with 5% down and very good credit fell back to an average of 4.375

Longest days on market: 976 days. FOREST HIGHLANDS custom home with golf course views on one side and dramatic Canyon views on the other. Originally listed for almost 1M, this luxury home stayed on the market for over 2 and a half years before it sold.

The Institute of Luxury Home Marketing's latest review of the luxury market in North America (US & Canada) pegs median days on market in Dec at 56 days. 

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.
