During August, the median price of Flagstaff homes reached the highest point since March. This is largely due to a more than 50% increase in sales over $500,000 combined with a healthy increase in homes sold in the $400,000-$500,000. As always, the median is simply the mid-point of the total number of homes sold.
In August, 89 single-family Flagstaff homes were sold — a healthy, but not fantastic, volume, which is up 5.3% from the previous August. The median sale price for those Flagstaff homes was $335,892, which is up 4.1% from the August 2013 median price. Here is the breakdown of sales and inventory by price range:
Inventory of Flagstaff homes for sale is up a whopping 20.7% from the beginning of September one-year ago, reflecting the desire of homeowners who have been waiting for an improved real estate market to cash-in the home equity they have been holding on to. It also reflects the business judgment of home builders that it’s ok to put their wares on the Flagstaff market.
