Advice to Buyers

Moving-Up to a Flagstaff Luxury Home? Now’s the Time! If your house no longer fits your needs and you are planning on buying a luxury home, now is a great time to do so! Data from Trulia’s Market Mismatch Study which showed that in today’s premium home market, buyers are in control.

Inventory MismatchThe inventory of homes for sale in the Flagstaff luxury market far exceeds those searching to purchase these properties. This means that homes are often staying on the market longer which can eventually lead to a price change. Last year in the 4th quarter there were a total of 269 sales and this year in the first quarter there were 177. This is the reason we’re seeing quite a few price reductions.

Mortgage rates A 30 year fixed rate mortgage with 5% down is now at 3.75% with no points. Rates have risen from 2016's near-all-time lows, however lenders have increasingly eased guidelines to allow more access to credit for potential homeowners. 

Advice to Sellers

  Inventory levels have improved as we move into the final quarter of the year however there continues to be a shortage of affordable homes for sale (under $500,000). If you are considering selling your home under $500K, IT IS TIME TO LIST YOUR HOME TODAY! Let’s get together and discuss the inventory levels in your neighborhood to determine your next steps.
