Big Park VOC January Market Report

Jan '17 Big Park VOC MARKET HOME ANALYSIS – First of all, these 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.

VOC, Village of Oak Creek or Big Park also known as Sedona 86351 is the bedroom community of Sedona. It is located 20 minutes from the city center off highway 179. There are two zip codes in Sedona, 86336 and 86351. People choose this side of town because there is less traffic, good hiking trails, and a buyer can get more home for the same amount of money as Sedona 86336. It is also closer to the SR 179 for those who travel a lot.

These January VOC Market Reports will highlight 86351

In this zip code, you will find a majority of single family homes nestled between some red rock formations. Bell Rock, Courthouse Butte, Castle Rock and the back side of Cathedral are the most notable of the formations. You will also find more than a couple of golf courses including an executive 9 hole course. Even though there is some shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and lodging. The majority of the zip code has more affordable housing than the zip code of 86336.

Always use the median price to track trends. The median means that half the homes are higher and half are lower. If the highest priced home is well over a million dollars this will drive the average price of homes up substantially. Average price is not a good indicator of how the market is doing.

Days On Market (DOM)

The properties in VOC - Big Park have been on the market for an average of 240 days.  Less inventory causes the DOM to go up. Generally, the homes that are priced right will go into contract much faster causing the DOM to rise on homes that have been on the market and gone stale.

Bottom Line

Overall the real estate market for Village of Oak Creek has very low inventory.  A buyer may be able to find some homes that the seller is willing to negotiate.  The reason some homes are stale is because the seller is not willing to drop the price of the home. Keep that in mind when negotiating.

ABOUT ME: “Many buyers and sellers are skeptical about salespeople. So am I! But, I am not a typical salesperson. I put myself in your shoes and help you make decisions based on how I would want to proceed if I were you. In other words, what steps would I take and what is right for you? How will this transaction be beneficial for you? How will it help you move forward with your goals? How can I make it as smooth and pleasant as possible? What is in your best interests as we move forward?

Let’s face it, you won’t really know that I am not a typical salesperson until you get to know me. I am confident you will feel at ease and comfortable knowing I can find solutions for you. If you don’t feel that way, please let me know. I want to be the best I can for you. I am YOUR Solutions Realtor.” ~ Sheri Sperry

Hi Roy Kelley - My sellers do appreciate my attention to their property.  Many are not local so they depend on me to keep them informed.
