by Sean Baguley

 

Weekly Update. July 22, 2017.
There's lots going on today in Sedona. I've mentioned the Guided Nature Walks and Bird Walks previously, but Sedona is a haven for artists, so there are a number of activities to enjoy. For instance a Colored Pencil Adventure with Richard Drayton and, for music lovers, "Carmen" Met Opera Summer Encore and in the evening some blues with Sir Harrison.

U.S. homebuilding improved more than expected in June after declining for three straight months. However, construction activity remained somewhat constrained by rising lumber prices and labor and land shortages.
The Commerce Department annouced that Housing starts jumped 8.3% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.22 million units. This is the highest level since February, as both single-family and multi-family construction increased. May's number was revised upwards to 1.12 million units from the previously reported 1.09 million units.
Building permits in June increased 7.4% to a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 1,254 thousand from 1,168 thousand in May. This was above market expectations of 1,200 thousand. Permits for the construction of multi-family homes rose 13.9% to 443 thousand in June and single-family authorizations increased for the first time in four months by 4.1% to 811 thousand.

An article in the NAR Realtor Magazine quotes AOL Finance as saing that there are a number of projects that may not give as much return to home owners as expected.

The USDA share of total applications decreased to 0.7% from 0.8% the week prior
A June report from CoreLogic shows that nationally, in March 2017, 4.4% of mortgages were in some stage of delinquency (30 days or more past due including those in foreclosure). This represents a 0.8% point decline in the overall delinquency rate compared with March 2016 when it was 5.2%.

Sedona Real Estate 06/24/2017

by Sean Baguley

 

Weekly Update. June 24, 2017.
Sedona is a wonderful part of the world. There are basically two parts, West Sedona and The Village. In the Village, sometimes called the "Gateway to Sedona", as it is on SR 179, which takes you from the I-17 to West Sedona.
In the Village, the quieter part of Sedona, The Outlet Center has recently been acquired by a developer, who has re-named it Sedona Vista Village. He intends to add an hotel as well as consolidating the shoping and retaurant experience. Here is a link to a recent article on this development.
Also in the Village, The Collective is a colorful collection of stores, galleries and restaurants.
Something else for entertainment is the Gumption Street Arts Festival, which will give us six days of free arts beginning the week end of June 24th and 25th

Weekly Update. June 17, 2017.
Sedona Single Family Residential Homes ONLY.
All the Averages are for 1 year.
This week's numbers are,
New Listings:      22    Average: 16.8   (New Listings and Back on Market)
Under Contract:   26     Average: 20.6   (Active-Contingency Removal; Pending-Take Backup; and Pending) 
Closed Escrow:     6     Average:  8.9   (Sold and Closed Escrow) 
Off Market:           7     Average:  6.9  (Canceled; Expired; Temporary Off Market)
Price Reductions:      7     Average   11.1
Price Increases:        1     Average    0.6 
 
Contract Ratio:  32.70. The average over the last year is 27.1.
The Average Price per Square Foot of homes that are Under Contract was $245.63 per square foot. The yearly moving average is $241.21 per square foot. For those homes that Closed Escrow this week, the yearly moving average was $233.32 per square foot.
As has been widely anticipated, the Federal Reserve raised its bencmark rate by one quarter point for the second time this year, even though inflation may be running below the central bank's target. The new range will be 1% to 1.25%. The rate currently is at 0.91%. The level effects most adjustable-rate loans, revolving debt like credit cards and home equity loans.The Fed also provided more detail on how it will unwind its $4.5 trillion balance sheet.
The Commerce Department announced that housing starts fell 5.5% in May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.09 million units. This follows a 2.7% monthly decline in April and a 7.7% fall in March. Home construction is still 3.2% higher year-to-date.
 
Building permits, an indicator of future construction, fell 4.9% to 1.17 million. The pace of construction fell for the third straight month, perhaps a sign of an even larger shortage of houses for sale.

Contract Ratio:  32.70. The average over the last year is 27.1.
The Average Price per Square Foot of homes that are Under Contract was $245.63 per square foot. The yearly moving average is $241.21 per square foot. For those homes that Closed Escrow this week, the yearly moving average was $233.32 per square foot.
the Commerce Department announced that U.S. wholesale inventories fell 0.5% percent in April, against a rise of 0.2% in March. April sales by merchant wholesalers, excluding manufacturers' sales branches and offices, and after adjustment for seasonal variations, were $462.3 billion, down 0.4% for the latest period. Total inventories by merchant wholesalers were $591 billion at the end of the month. The April inventories/sales ratio was 1.28, compared to 1.35 a year ago. For the first quarter, inventory investment has been marginally weak.
America's small-business owners are highly confident about their prospects for the next year and optimistic about the state of the U.S. economy, according to the first-ever CNBC/SurveyMonkey Small Business Survey. Respondents were asked for their opinions on a variety of subjects about the future of their business and the state of the economy and U.S. politics. SurveyMonkey also calculated a small-business confidence index from the responses to eight key questions and concluded that small-business owners are "undeniably confident" in their prospects for the next year.
The Labor Department announced that initial claims for state unemployment benefits declined 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 245,000 for the week ended June 3. Claims had increased by 20,000 in the prior week, with California, Tennessee, Kansas, and Missouri accounting for the bulk of the increase. Some of that increase was related to school summer breaks. 
U.S. government debt prices slipped on Friday, as the market processed the news of the UK general election. The fall in prices produces a rise in yields. Towards the close, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to about 2.197% , while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond rose to about 2.853%.

Contract Ratio:  35.10. The average over the last year is 26.7. As market activity has increased, the Average Contract Ratio has steadily risen from 21.5 the week of November 12, 2016 to its current 26.7.

The Average Price per Square Foot of homes that are Under Contract was $239.64 per square foot. The yearly moving average is $240.59 per square foot. For those homes that Closed Escrow this week, the yearly moving average was $234.33 per square foot.

The University of Michigan's Consumer Sentiment Index hit 97.1 for its final reading in May. This was lower than market expectations, and followed the 98 level for the Index in April. Consumer sentiment seems to have plateaued at this higher level following last November's election.

The Commerce Department said, in its second estimate, that U.S. economic growth slowed less sharply in the first quarter than initially thought. Market commentators consider this weakness is an aberration, as the labor market is strong and close to full employment. Gross domestic product increased at a 1.2% annual rate instead of the 0.7% reported last month. This was the weakest performance since the first quarter of 2016.The economy expanded by a 2.1% annual rate in the fourth quarter of 2016.
