This Flagstaff home, situated in the Ponderosa Trails neighborhood, went on the market late Saturday and was under contract by mid-day on Sunday. Same old story — priced right and in tip-top condition. Of course, it’s in a popular price range — $310,000.
If you are looking in the price range or below, you need to be working closely with an attentive agent or you will lose in the race to find and secure these homes. Call us to get started: 928-714-0001.

There is a deck off the master bedroom, a large deck off the great room (overlooking the approach to hole #5) and the patio already mentioned downstairs adjacent to the fairway.
We’re going into a holiday weekend and it’s kind of easy to stop paying attention to what’s on the market among homes for sale if you are a Flagstaff real estate agent or a home buyer who doesn’t want to move until the end of August. But if you do that, someone may snatch the Flagstaff house you want right out from under you. Just yesterday, I showed a home to a fellow who wanted to “think about it over night.” When I checked the Flagstaff MLS at 9 p.m., the house was under contract for somebody else.
So let me call to your attention a couple of great properties:
Single-level home on 3.5 beautiful acres. LARGE great room. Mountain views. Just $390,000. MLS #158278.
Four bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2000 square feet in Ponderosa Trails. Just listed this week and we’re having lots of traffic. $350,000. MLS #168915
I’ve got a couple that aren’t quite ready for MLS, but will be coming up in the next few days, including a 3 bedroom in Ponderosa Trails with a large, fenced backyard ($350,000) and a beautiful townhome right next to a fairway on my favorite Flagstaff golf course ($400,000). Keep your eyes out for these to appear on MLS soon or give me a call (928-714-0001).
RE/MAX Peak Properties has the best real estate office receptionist in town, IMHO. This morning, she had a small stack of blank appointment sheets, so she printed 40 more in anticipation of the weekend. By noon on Friday, the stack was down to one. A busy market, means a busy receptionist. Regardless, Sharryl keeps her cool. There is always more paper — keep those appointments coming!
The median Flagstaff home sale price fell in February to $279,800 compared with January’s median of $288,500. The February median price was still $10,000 above last year’s Flagstaff home market sale price of $269,900. The average sale price in February was $331,470, which is almost $30,000 above February 2013. There were only 46 sales of Flagstaff single-family homes in February – up 12% from last year, but still a small number in a market when inventory is rising again as sellers are drawn in by higher prices.
Flagstaff homes for sale as of March 7, 2014 numbered 302. That’s up over 20% from the beginning of March last year. The good weather and new home building in Flagstaff account for part of the increase in Flagstaff homes for sale, but conventional wisdom says the driving force is higher home prices. Average price per square foot for a single family home sold in February 2014 was $164 compared with $142 in February 2013.
The increase in inventory tipped the statistical reading of the overall Flagstaff real estate market into “buyer’s market” territory as the ratio of Flagstaff homes for sale vs. Flagstaff homes sold reached 6.57 months. If the market is broken into price ranges, however, you see that buyers seeking to buy a Flagstaff single-family home priced under $350,000 are still facing a real estate market heavily weighted in the sellers’ favor. We see this demonstrated almost daily as new Flagstaff listings in the lower price ranges come on the market and are snapped up immediately with multiple offers coming in on the first or second day of listing on the Flagstaff MLS.
The Flagstaff townhome market in February was not so strong, showing only 6 sales in February and 62 townhomes available as of March 7. The median sale price was $189,500 – a precipitous drop from January’s median of $297,055. Don’t put too much weight on that given the small number of townhome units involved in arriving at that statistical median in each month. Still the fact that there are over 10 months’ worth of townhomes on the market right now means this is a great time to buy a summer home if Flagstaff townhomes are what interest you. Last year, the median sale price of Flagstaff townhomes in February was $250,000 and there were just over 3 months’ supply available at the February pace of sales. Quite a change, largely based on new building currently underway.

Beautiful Linwood Heights home was sold yesterday — 39 days after it was listed on the Northern Arizona MLS
Linwood Estates Home
This four bedroom, three bath Flagstaff home features an amazing great room with fabulous views of the San Francisco Peaks. The photos and virtual tour were fabulous. (I say that to compliment my photographer – and because it’s true). So, it’s not too surprising that we had offers to deal with before I had time to blog about this great Flagstaff home.

Linwood Heights HOA maintains a private, fenced park with ramadas for owner use only and access to National Forest land. The home itself sits on 1.89 private acres.
So, throw away the rule book that says you can’t sell homes over $600,000 in Flagstaff. I’ve just done two in the last 45 days.

Here’s a sign of how tight inventory levels have been lately: More homes are selling in a flash—finding a buyer within 24 hours of being listed. In some places, homes sell in just one day. Flagstaff is one of those places — for SOME Flagstaff homes.
“It’s the extreme, though there is more of it right now than there has been in years,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist for Trulia, a real-estate website, referring to the flash sale phenomenon across the country. Read Amy Hoak’s article in MarketWatch.com here.
I’ve seen it happen in Flagstaff this spring, but seller beware: Your home may be under contract in a day but there is still all the bargaining about inspections and perhaps about appraisal value. Don’t start spending that cash until the deal is actually done.
On the other hand. seller also beware that normal market rules apply: Your house MUST look clean and uncluttered. Odd floor plans and bare dirt landscaping are not going to cut it. Over-pricing will lead to few showings instead of buyers making low-ball offers (that over-pricing to get an offer is so 1990s). Buyers EXPECT nice houses to sell quickly at the price they see listed on the internet. If they see that yours hasn’t, they perhaps will accept the judgment of others who have passed you by. Bottom line: Make your house ready to sell in both appearance and price before you put it on the market.
