Report 12/26/16

Cottonwood AZ December Market Report & Homes for saleThese are real time charts that tell us "How the market is doing".  

See the definition of Market Action Index above. Altos Research uses a complex algorithm to provide the MAI.

Cottonwood Information

To analyze the Cottonwood AZ Market Report, An understanding of the city is helpful. It is about a half hour south of Sedona and located off highway 260 and the 89A.  Cottonwood is known for it's big box shopping centers and is also known for the Verde Valley Medical Center.  There are many medical offices around the hospital that provide all the services you might need. Go to and select Cottonwood for more information. Old Town Cottonwood has been completely renovated in the last few years.  It has the charm of the Old West and the modern flair of contemporary restaurants and boutique shopping.  One of my favorite gourmet food stores is the Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders.  You must go in there and taste the ultra fresh olive oils and balsamic vinegars they offer.  This Old Town experience is another reason that the Cottonwood, Clarkdale and Cornville areas are thriving.  Not only does this area bring tourism but the locals are fully invested in it's success!

Cottonwood AZ December Market Status

Median Price

The Median Price has increased from $279,450 in November to $299,900. There has been a steady increase since July 2016 in the median price.


When you look at the trend lines on the charts below, you will notice that Inventory was at it's lowest level near May 2016, for all quartiles. The inventory Is rising slowly. Currently, 7 properties are on market more than November. There continues to be 4 listings over $1 million. 

DOM - Days On Market

The Top quartile which has a median price of $525,000 - down from $579,000 is showing an average days on market at 245 which is up 27 from last month. Overall, DOM has increased to 135 from 119 and is showing a strong upward push in both the top and bottom quartiles. The bottom quartile is 29 days higher than last month.


The Market Action Index MAI for the top tier is below 30 and may have bottomed out at 22 in July. Currently it is above 26.  This has stabilized. In contrast the MAI for the 3 other quartiles are mixed. However, the other 3 quartiles are converging and there has been a strong downward trend in quartiles 2 and 3. 

Seller Zone

Cottonwood is in the seller zone overall and median prices continue to show increases.   Keep your eye on the MAI . The top quartile is the only one in the buyer zone and seems to have stabilized.. The MAI was very high in the summer months and has significantly weakened as the year moved on.  Weakening the seller position.   

The homes in the Cottonwood area are priced more competitively than Sedona. You get more home and property for the price.  Also it is an easy drive to Sedona to enjoy the beauty of that area.


Buyers may find some relief in the top quartile.  The homes in the top range, do not compete well with the more desireable location of Sedona. This may be the reason that this zone is not moving well. There may be some deals to be had in the other 3 quartiles as well.  The median price of homes may be causing some of the flux in the other indices because of the stronger position of median price, over the last few months.  This may cause the median price to weaken going forward.

Hi Sheri - this is a comprehensive look at the Cottonwood real estate market. You provide so much more than mere numbers with your insight into the area amenities.   It really gives the reader a "feel" for what they will find when they come for a visit...and for what hopefully turns into a more permanent stay.
