Flagstaff Home Buyer Advice
Prices are going to continue to appreciate. Mortgage rates are going to continue to go up.

Housing supply traditionally shrinks at this time of year, so the choices buyers have will be limited. Inventory level for starter homes is down a bit vs last month and is still far from what is needed to satisfy the demand for affordable/starter home where homebuyer demand is strongest.
- $200k- $400K, inventory is 13% lower vs last month, less than 3 months supply. It's a seller's market at this price range. A balanced market has 6 months supply of homes for sale.
- $400K- $500K, down by 18 %, only 3 months supply.
- Above $500K, we have over 6 months of supply. No shortage here. Oversupply is highest at $1M - $1.1M and $1.2M - $1.3M
If you’re buying at the lower price range, having fewer homes on the market could present a few challenges. Don’t worry! I can help you come up with a strategy to find your next home. Let's talk about your situation in person! Call Kelly at 888.446.5602.
2019 is just a few short days away. While no one can predict the future with certainty, most experts expect to see modest growth in the U.S. housing market for the remainder of this year and next. AZ home prices are expected to increase by 6.3%.
Flagstaff Home Seller Advice
Many sellers believe that spring is the best time to place their homes on the market because buyer demand traditionally increases at that time of year, but what they don’t realize is that if every homeowner believes the same thing, then that is when they will have the most competition!
Our advice to home sellers:
Do necessary upgrades and list before the summer selling season begins. The #1 Reason to List Your Home in the Winter Months is Less Competition!

Longest days on market: 753 days. Flagstaff Ranch masterpiece with incredible golf course views tucked in next to the 15th tee box. Priced in the low 800's, this luxury home stayed on the market for a little over 2 years before it sold. Flagstaff luxury homes at this price range typically stay on the market for 7-8 months on the average.
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.
