Happy Customers

Mon, Feb 19th 2018 3:13 pm by Leah Kolb Miscellaneous

We are so fortunate to have the BEST Clients. Check out our newest review.

"Contacted Jan to look at a few homes in Sedona and after looking at a number of options decided to purchase land and build instead. Jan was very patient with us and completely understood what we were looking for and the type of surroundings that would be important to us. We closed yesterday on our future home site and Jan and Wally made the process easy and handled the due diligence issues effectively and efficiently. Jan introduced us to our architect and contractor and we can't wait to get started building in Sedona."

Vacant Land in Sedona is Still a Bargain

Mon, Jan 22nd 2018 2:10 pm by Wally Reule Sedona Real Estate Market News

As I've lamented in the past, the inventory of Sedona homes for sale in the $450,000 - $650,000 range is at an all time low. And when a good one comes on the market, it will often get multiple offers within the first couple of days. Just yesterday I showed clients a home that was available in the morning, they loved it and were ready to write an offer, but by the time we got back to the office, it was under contract. One of the lessons here is that in this market, you may have to build a home in order to get what you want.

The good news is that land prices still have not fully recovered form the 2008 crash, and offer a lot of value. A great example is our listing in Cross Creek Ranch. Th...

New Apartment Complex in Sedona

Tue, Dec 19th 2017 1:35 pm by Wally Reule Events

I have mentioned in the past that there is a shortage of long term rental properties in Sedona. This shortage is the result of many rental properties being converted to vacation rentals. The Sedona City Council has expressed concern about this, and has now done something about it. They recently increased multi-family housing density limitations from 12 per acre to 20 per acre. And just last Tuesday, they unanimously approved a 45 unit complex in West Sedona. For more information follow this link to the Red Rock News article.

Americans Have Confidence in Homeownership

Thu, Sep 28th 2017 5:36 pm by Leah Kolb Miscellaneous

For the past twelve years the National Association of REALTORS® has conducted a National Housing Pulse Survey to gauge Americans confidence in homeownership. And the results show that when it comes to safe investments, Americans feel that home buying is where it’s at:

“The vast majority of Americans believe that buying a home is a solid financial decision, and most believe that homeownership helps create safe, secure, and stable environments.”

Highlights from the report:
