February 2023 Flagstaff Market Report


Flagstaff Home Sales Spike in February 2023, Prices Fall 4%


February is usually one of slowest months in Flagstaff real estate and this year is no different. Prices have declined in recent months, and we can expect a busy spring selling season, fueled by changing mortgage rates and low inventory. Here's our latest update. 



US Existing-Home Sales Surged 14.5% in February, Ending 12-Month Streak of Declines while Greater Flagstaff's housing sales increased 36.7% from the previous month.  Lower mortgage rates and the year-on-year decrease in prices pulled buyers back into the market. There were sixty-seven homes sold, a 25.6% decrease from the previous year.

"Conscious of changing mortgage rates, home buyers are taking advantage of any rate declines. Moreover, we're seeing stronger sales gains in areas where home prices are decreasing and the local economies are adding jobs,"said National Association of Realtors Chief Economist Lawrence Yun.

The Broaddus Properties Group Brokered by eXp listed and sold seven Flagstaff and Williams homes valued at over $5.7 million in February. Last year, we assisted in the purchase and sale of five homes in Flagstaff and Sedona totaling $4.5 million.



Flagstaff Median Home Price & DOM February 2023

"The median list-to-sales ratio for this area is 98.5%." List to Sales Ratio is the percentage of the list price that the buyer paid for the property. 

The rise in interest rates, combined with a drop in buyer demand, had quite an effect on home prices. This month's median home price is 4% lower than January. Year on year, home price growth has slowed for the third month in a row. Flagstaff's median sold price in February fell 5.8% year on year to $645,000, from a high of $684,500 last year. 

Homes are selling faster than in January, with a median of 66 days on the market, but they are still selling much slower than last year's forty-two days

2023 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales - 68 homes, down 24.4% vs February 2022.

Median Sales Price - $645,000, down 5.8% vs February 2022

Mortgage rates - Mortgage rates declined across the board this week as the markets reacted to the sudden failures of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank. The average 30-year fixed rate mortgage rate is around 6.9% as of March 21 

Longest days on market (SF): 317 days This four-bedroom custom home sits on heavily treed 2.5 acres bordering forest service located in the Rio Rancho neighborhood.

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. 



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 homes.

Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice

Data from the Northern Arizona MLS show that only one hundred nine new homes were on the market last month, 35.1% lower than last year. Experts are projecting slight price depreciation in the housing market this year, followed by steady appreciation

Should I buy a home this spring? Here are three reasons you should consider making a move:

  1. Buying a home helps you escape the cycle of rising rents. Over the past several decades, the median price of rent has risen consistently. The bottom line is rent is going up.
  2. Homeownership is a hedge against inflation. A key advantage of homeownership is that it’s one of the best hedges against inflation. When you buy a home with a fixed-rate mortgage, you secure your housing payment, so it won’t go up like it would if you rent.
  3. Homeownership is a powerful wealth-building tool. The average net worth of a homeowner is $255,000 compared to $6,300 for a renter.

Flagstaff Home Seller Advice 

There is less than two months' supply of inventory. The Flagstaff real estate market is firmly in favor of sellers for homes priced under $1,500,000 and could trigger prices to rise again. Many existing homeowners are reluctant to sell their current home, buy a different property and then borrow at a higher rate, thereby restricting the supply of homes for sale.
