It might seem like this number is going down, but we haven't seen the massive numbers here as in other areas of the country. In all of Flagstaff and surrounding areas there are 792 active homes for sale, of those 61 are short sales and 52 are foreclosures, which are a little higher numbers than we've seen in weeks. About 61% of the sales in 2011 were regular equity sales (non-foreclosure, non-short sale, non-HUD), so the majority of our sales has been regular equity sales.

A snapshot of the current market and of the homes that have sold in the last 6 months:
Most of the homes (47%) have been on the market more than 120 days. There is a lot of competition in the market right now. To sell your home in the quickest amount of time, you need to be competative with the other listings. That means, price your home according to the market, put your best foot forward by having your home show as well as it can, and hire a competative real estate agent who will market your home effectively, so you can get the exposure you need.
