Aug 2019 Flagstaff Market Report


Is The Flagstaff Real Estate Market Slowing Down?


Fall is typically the time of year when we start talking about the housing market taking a breather - but did you know that fall is an incredible time to buy or sell a home? According to the latest market stats, there is still a lack of inventory and high demand from buyers. With that in mind, I wanted to give you a quick update on the housing market. 


The US Existing home sales increased by 1.3% in August 2019. Meanwhile, Flagstaff housing sales rose 17% from the same period last year.  There were 134 houses sold in August, the most in 14 years. A big contributor to the strength in our real estate market is mortgage rates which recently hit a 3-year low.

August 2019 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2019 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales -   134 homes,   up 17% vs August 2018. 

Median Home Price -  $404,000 ,   up 6% vs August 2018

Mortgage rates  - A 30 year fixed rate mortgage with 5% down and very good credit is now at an average of 4%

Longest days on market (SF):  545 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.

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. What is driving demand?

  1. MILLENNIAL BUYERS According to CoreLogic's latest Home Price Insight Report 26% of Millenials want to buy a home in the next 12 months.
  2. LOW-INTEREST RATES Interest rates have gone up in the last 2 weeks but it's still near historic lows.

 CoreLogic HPI Forecast indicates that US home prices will increase by 5.2% on a year-over-year basis from June 2019 to June 2020. The amount of appreciation is pretty much determined by price range. The lower-priced houses that have the least amount of inventory and the greatest amount of demand appreciate much higher than luxury homes. As we go up in price, there will be fewer buyers that could afford those houses and there’s more and more inventory. We can see that as we go up in price, the year-over-year change in price, the amount of appreciation, actually goes down.Forecasted Year Over Year Change in Price
