Sedona Short Term Rentals Ain't What They Used to Be

Fri, Jul 21st 2023 3:55 pm by Wally Reule Sedona Real Estate Market News

If you are a Sedona Resident, or have been paying attention to the local real estate market, you have to know the effect that short term rentals have had in the market, and many would argue, in the quality of the Sedona experience. Well, it appears that the number of short term rental homes is declining. Just another example of the free market auto-correcting. The Sedona Red Rock News published an article which does a nice job of explaining the history and recent trends. To read the entire article, click here.

Sedona Market Statistics for the First Half of 2023

Fri, Jul 14th 2023 6:14 pm by Wally Reule Sedona Real Estate Market News

Market statistics for the first six months are in. As expected, the numbers are down when compared to the first six months of last year. But that is to be expected. The first six months of 2022 were very strong, with June being the biggest month. Then, everything slowed down, and it's been fairly steady since then. The number of single family residences that sold dropped from 263 to 194, or 26%. Median sales price slipped 11%, from $1,120,000 to $999,000 and price per square foot dropped by 10%.

City of Sedona Monthly Roundup

Mon, May 1st 2023 12:24 pm by Wally Reule Miscellaneous

If you want to know what the Sedona City government is up to, their monthly newsletter is a great source of information. It's easy to subscribe to and is easy to read. The highlight of the April issue was the approval of a contract to build an underpass for pedestrian traffic to cross State Route 179 at Tlaquepaque. We hope it will improve traffic flow in the area.

How to Buy a Short Term Rental in Sedona

Mon, Apr 24th 2023 7:22 pm by Wally Reule Sedona Real Estate Market News

We get a lot of inquiries from investors who would like to purchase a home for vacation rental. But it's not as simple as you may think. First, prices aren't what they used to be. Three years ago you could get one for under $500,000, but that train left the station a long time ago. The median listing price in Sedona this week is $1,162,499. Smart investors know that if they want to be in Sedona, they will probably have to spend at least $800,000, and must be prepared to compete against multiple offers. Insisting on a Sedona mailing address limits your choices, and there are other good investment opportunities in some of the outlying areas. Additionally, make sure you know about any possib...

Ranger Station Park About to Become a Reality

Sat, Apr 22nd 2023 1:32 pm by Wally Reule Events

It's nice to see that there is finally some movement on this project. The City of Sedona purchased the land nearly ten years ago, came up with a design relatively quickly, and then let it sit for a very long time. Perhaps they can use some of the money they were spending to bring more visitors to the area on something the locals will actually enjoy. For more information on this, follow this link to the Red Rock News article.

Sedona City Council and Chamber of Commerce to Cut Ties

Wed, Apr 12th 2023 2:49 pm by Wally Reule Events

For the past twenty years the City of Sedona has contracted with the local Chamber of Commerce to manage the resort destination marketing program. That relationship is about to come to an end, as the Chamber of Commerce board voted not to renew the contract. That will put responsibility for marketing the local tourism business back where it belongs....with the business community. For more detail, click here to read the article in the Red Rock News.

Wed, Apr 5th 2023 5:25 pm by Wally Reule Sedona Real Estate Market News

The median list price of a home in Sedona is $1,159,000, which is about the same place as it was at the beginning of 2022. List prices peaked at a little over a million and a half in the late spring of 2022. However, they have been slightly creeping back up for the past couple of months, and are still well above the median price of $750,000 only three years ago.

Sedona Real Estate Market Back to Normal?

Mon, Feb 27th 2023 10:37 am by Wally Reule Sedona Real Estate Market News

"New normal" is a phrase that we have heard often since the beginning of the pandemic. But, it appears that is where our real estate market is now. After a very hot market for over two years, buyers took a pause for the second half of 2022. Now some of them are coming back. The market slightly favors sellers, in that there is a bit more demand than supply, and overall, the market appears to be stable. New normal refers to the notion that a new floor has been set for home prices, driven in large part by investors who paid cash for their homes. Time will tell.

2022 Year Ending Numbers in Sedona

Tue, Jan 31st 2023 7:37 pm by Wally Reule Sedona Real Estate Market News

After red hot sales in 2020 and 2021, last year looked much more normal compared to historical standards. In terms of the number of homes sold, that is. However, the median sales price of a single family home increased by 20% over the previous year, going from $875,000 to $1,150,000. The same was true of vacant The number of lots sold decreased by 45%, while the median sales price grew from $250,000 to $300,000, a 20% increase. The high cost of building and shortage of building supplies didn't help. For more detail see our Market Statistics Page.

Artificial Intelligence in Real Estate?

Mon, Jan 30th 2023 2:47 pm by Wally Reule Miscellaneous

A friend recently sent me an article on an artificial intelligence app that can save agents time, especially with new listings. Here is a link to the article: https://www.cnn.com/2023/01/28/tech/chatgpt-real-estate/index.html

She asked me my opinion, so here it is. It looks like it could be a helpful tool, and since it's free for now, it would be interesting to play with it. But it looks like another step in the dumbing down of the world, and our industry. People will probably start to rely on it when it's not appropriate, and become incapable of doing the job themselves. I can envision someone saying, "Let's have my AI device talk to your AI device and see what they want to do." Scary s...
