 June 2017 Flagstaff Home Sales

 

Flagstaff Home Sales Soar In June, but trend softening

In June, people from all over Arizona and out of state flocked to Flagstaff to get out of the extreme heat. Within this group were homebuyers looking to relocate or buy their second/vacation home in Flagstaff. The influx of potential homebuyers kept Flagstaff realtors busy with showings and paperwork. 

Flagstaff Home Sales 

With the first half of 2017 in the books, let us first take look at home sales & prices for the first six months of the past 4 years. 

Flagstaff First Half Home Sales Over Time

First Half home sales in the greater Flagstaff area has slowed down after two consecutive years of stellar performance. Total sales for the first half of the year was off 3%compared to 2016 figures. 2nd quarter sales also slipped, down 4% pointing to a market that is struggling to gain momentum. The Flagstaff housing market is being hampered by a shortage of affordable homes for sale, which is keeping the pressure up on home prices.

However, sales volume in June 2017 was very strong with sales rising 9% versus last year. This is the highest  June sales in 12 years . By all measures it was a very busy June.

Home Price

Flagstaff First Half Median Home Price Over Time

Housing prices in the greater Flagstaff region continue to rise across the board. For the first six months prices jumped 3% compared to the first half of 2016. The median sale price came in at $365K which is the highest in 10 years.

Inventory

The cooling off  in home sales reflect a constraint on supply, rather than demand, amid a strong migration and a stronger labor market.

  • Inventory has improved. Supply of homes in the  $300K-$400K is near normal level at just under 6 months. Under $300K, inventory has improved but remain a significant concern at under 4  months of supply. Builders have been building new construction but the price range is out of reach of most first time buyers.
  • There remains an overabundance of homes to choose from for the $500K and above buyer.
