Flagstaff Home Prices Stabilize, Inventory Continues Upward Trend in October 2023

We saw our usual seasonal decline in sales this October, and the Flagstaff real estate market is showing promising signs. Inventory continues to rise, while prices are leveling off, creating a more predictable buying, and selling scenario. Here's the most recent update. 



US Existing-Home Sales Receded 4.1% in October while Greater Flagstaff's housing sales declined 10.9% from the previous month according to data released by the Northern Arizona MLS. One hundred and twenty-three homes were sold in October, representing a 20.6% rise from the prior year. 


October 2023 Flagstaff Home Sales by Type


"Prospective home buyers experienced another difficult month due to the persistent lack of housing inventory and the highest mortgage rates in a generation. Multiple offers, however, are still occurring, especially on starter and mid-priced homes, even as price concessions are happening in the upper end of the market, " said National Association of Realtors Chief Economist Lawrence Yun.


Last month, the Broaddus Properties Group listed and sold: four Flagstaff homes valued at over $2.2 million. Congrats to our home buyers and sellers!!! 



Flagstaff Median Home Price & DOM Oct 2023

"The median list-to-sales ratio for this area is 98.6%." List to Sales Ratio is the percentage of the list price that the buyer paid for the property. 

Flagstaff sold median home price fell 19.5% vs September this year. If we compare it to the same month last year, it slid 5.78% from $668,000. 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.

Homes remained on the market for a median of 71 days, which means homes sold one day faster vs the prior year, but 12 days slower than the 59 days we saw in September.



OCTOBER 2023 Flagstaff Market Watch Summary

2023 Flagstaff Real Estate Market Watch Total Home Sales - 123 homes, up 20.6vs Sept 22.

Median Sales Price - $630,000 down 5.7% vs Sept 22

Mortgage rates - The weekly average for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage rate is 7.55% as of this week, down from 7.66 percent last week. This is according to Bankrate’s weekly national survey of large lenders.

Longest days on market (SF): 708 days, this is a 2-bedroom condo at The Views at Butler, a 5-story condo neighborhood on the intersection of Butler and Beaver in the center of Downtown Flagstaff 

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

If you want to purchase a house, mortgage rates affect how much you can afford. That is why so many homebuyers want to know what mortgage rates will be like in the future. No one can say for certain, but the anticipation is that in 2024, we’ll see a downward trend. 

Home prices are expected to keep climbing next year, and in the years to come. Whether you already own a primary residence or are still renting, the best time to start thinking about purchasing a home is now.
