"Though rebounding from cyclical lows, home sales are stuck because interest rates have not made any major moves. There are nearly six million more jobs now compared to pre-COVID highs, which suggests more aspiring home buyers exist in the market," said National Association of Realtors Chief Economist Lawrence Yun.

Flagstaff Median Home Price & DOM March 2024

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

The median property price in Flagstaff slipped for the second month in a row by 1.5%, reaching just $695,550 in March. In comparison to the same month last year, this reflects a notable 9.5% rise from $635,000. 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.

In March, homes were sold more rapidly, with the median time on the market decreasing to 65 days. This marks a 10-day reduction compared to the previous year.

Longest days on market (SF): 388 days This luxury townhome in Elk Pass (Pine Canyon) offers four bedrooms and four baths and features a full-length covered outdoor patio with built-in BBQ.

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.
