Monthly Flagstaff Homes Sales Report – April

The numbers from April are showing us that the Flagstaff real estate market continues to grow strong. With 83 single family homes selling last month, we went up from 76 in March and 58 from April of 2017. We are not seeing any signs of a slow down, and we continue to feel the pressure of rising prices. There is only a month’s supply of single family homes under $400,000, and no current single family homes under the $200,000 range. We broke the $400,000 mark with the median home price which was $414,000 in April.

There are still some homes to be found in the lower price ranges, but buyers may have to open their options to townhomes, condos and manufactured homes. These prices are rising too, however. The median price for a manufactured home in Flagstaff in April was $263,000.

With a market like this it is important to hire a trained professional to guide you. The Elite Team is always here to help! Call Jessica, Eric and Sara if you are considering selling or buying. We are three full-time agents that can help you navigate through this exciting Flagstaff real estate market.

Monthly Flagstaff Homes Sales Report – March 2018 Flagstaff Homes Sales

We finally have the March Sales Report out. With some unexpected events, this month took a bit longer to get the stats out. Though they are a bit tardy, the numbers are still the same. March saw a major uptick in sales from February. Flagstaff logged 76 sales of single family homes, up from 36 last month. This is not a surprise as January and February tend to be slower months. The inventory is starting to creep up, but it’s still low compared to the number of buyers. Competing offers are very prevalent as long as a home is priced competitively. We are always happy to talk about a pricing strategy, if you are considering selling. April should also be a strong month for sales as we have 164 pending sales.

The townhome market was a little stronger this month than February with 22 sales compared to 17. Condos, however, were down to 10 sales compared to 36 last month. Condos that are hitting the market are getting offers immediately.

The median single family home is still hovering around the $400,000 mark at $395,000. We are always watching the market trends and are eager to see what the summer has in store.

We know that there are a lot of agents who offer a monthly sales report. What makes ours better and more accurate is that we pull the numbers from the multiple listing service ourselves.  Most other agents have one that compiles all of the MLS data and doesn’t distinguish from single family homes to manufactured to townhomes. We go the extra mile to provide the most accurate, informative data. Please let us know how we can help you.
