August 2023 Flagstaff Home Sales by Type


"Home sales have been stable for several months ... Mortgage rate changes will have a big impact over the short run, while job gains will have a steady, positive impact over the long run, " said National Association of Realtors Chief Economist Lawrence Yun.

Flagstaff Median Home Price & DOM Aug 2023

"The median list-to-sales ratio for this area is 99.9%." List to Sales Ratio is the percentage of the list price that the buyer paid for the property. 

Flagstaff sold median home price in August 2023 increased by 9% vs July this year. It jumped 20.6% year on year to $760,000, from $630,000 the previous year. The median sale price measures the ‘middle’ price of homes that sold, meaning that half of the homes sold for a higher price and half sold for less . . . For example, if more lower-priced homes have sold recently, the median sale price would decline (because the “middle” home is now a lower-priced home), even if the value of each individual home is rising.

Homes remained on the market for a median of 53 days, which means homes sold 3 days faster vs the prior year, and slower than the 48 days we saw in July.

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 Home Seller Advice 

Are you considering selling your home? If that's the case, today's mortgage rates may be making you reconsider. Some homeowners are hesitant to sell their current house and take on a higher mortgage rate on their future purchase. If you're concerned about this, keep in mind that while interest rates are now high, so is home equity.

When you decide to relocate, your equity might make a significant impact. After you sell your home, you can use the equity you've built up to help you purchase your next one. Here's how it's done:

  • Be an all-cash buyer: If you've lived in your existing home for a long time, you may have enough equity to buy a new one without taking out a loan.
  • Make a larger down payment: Your equity could be applied to your next down payment. It might even be enough to allow you to put down a higher amount, allowing you to borrow less money and making today's rates less of a concern.

Ready to sell? Let’s connect to start the process. Call us at 928.606.6749 or email kelly.broaddus@exprealty.com.
