Verde Valley Real Estate Update: January – October 2019

Residential properties in the Verde Valley saw a median price increase of +7.2% vs. YA in the Jan-Oct’19 period, with Rimrock leading the pack at (+14.6% vs YA), followed by Clarkdale (+8.3% vs. YA), and Camp Verde (+7.8% vs YA). Sedona showed the slowest median price growth at +2.7% vs. YA and the number of sold listings (551) was -6.5% vs. YA, whereas the whole of the Verde Valley (1398) was down only -1.1% vs. YA in sold listings. Noteworthy, the Verde Valley saw a 1% increase in new listings, with Sedona showing the greatest increase at +6% vs. YA. The improved inventory situation in Sedona was probably a reason why median prices did not go up more (only +2.7% vs. YA). Clarkdale continues to show a high growth in units sold (117, +41% vs. YA) as more new homes are being built there than anywhere else in the Verde Valley.

(1) Median Price means that 50% of the sold homes were above this number and 50% below it.
