Monthly Flagstaff Homes Sales Report – October 2017 Flagstaff Homes Sales

Tags

, , ,

The market for single family homes in October remained strong with 97 sales for the month.  Compare this to the 82 sales in October of 2016 and it is even more impressive. It is also important to note there are now 140 single family homes currently under contract and in escrow. Inventory remains low with less than 75 homes for sale under $400,000.

While interest rates remain historically low, many believe this will be changing in the months to come.  There is also a growing concern with how the proposed new tax legislation, if passed, will affect home ownership.  The National Association of REALTORS® is strongly opposed to The Tax Cut and Jobs Act and has issued a call to action for all its members to reach out to their Senators asking them to reform the plan. It is anticipated that the housing market will react negatively should the changes pass into law.

The average sales price for single family homes for August was $468,040 and the median price was $399,500. The average price per square foot was $209.65.

Due to lack of inventory there were only 3 condo sales for the month.  Townhomes faired a little better with 29 townhome sales in the Flagstaff area for October.

Monthly Flagstaff Homes Sales Report – September Flagstaff Homes Sales

Tags

, ,

We saw another month of growth in September 2017 in most price ranges.  The largest amount of growth was in the $300,000-$500,000 price ranges with 73 sales in September 2017 compared to 60 in August 2017.  This is significantly up compared to September 2016 where we saw 51 homes sales in the $300,000-$500,000 price ranges.  Continuing the trend, our supply of inventory is very limited up to the $500,000 mark.  We anticipate sales and inventory to slow in the next few months due to historical statistics for this time of year.  There are a good number of Pending-Taking Backup (which means the home has an offer on it but is still in the escrow period and waiting to close out) in September which should show us some good sales numbers next month.

The average sales price for a single family home in Flagstaff for September 2017 was $454,589 which is about $10,000 less than the previous month.  The median sales price went up a bit to $410,000.  The average sales price per square foot was $208.30.

In Flagstaff we saw 11 condo sales and only 22 townhome sales.  The townhome sales are down quite a bit compared to last month.  This is due, however, to the lack of inventory.  Most townhomes are priced in the price range that is selling so if there were more on the market we would see more sales.

See the numbers below for September 2017.
