These numbers may seem like they are going down, but Flagstaff hasn't been hit as hard as other areas, so this has been pretty consistent.
In all of Flagstaff and surrounding areas there are 894 active homes for sale, of those 44 are short sales and 53 are foreclosures, these numbers are higher than last week, but still very low compared to "normal" inventory.
Flagstaff is surrounded by National Forest, which insulates our prices some because there is a limit to the supply of homes here, we are also about a 25% second home market, which helps keep our prices higher than the National average. In 2011, almost 61% of homes sold were regular equity sales (non-foreclosure, non-short sale), so most of our sales are regular equity sales.

A snapshot of the current market and of the homes that have sold in the last 6 months:
Most of the homes (47%) have been on the market more than 120 days. There is a lot of competition in the market right now. To sell your home in the quickest amount of time, you need to be competative with the other listings. That means, price your home according to the market, put your best foot forward by having your home show as well as it can, and hire a competative real estate agent who will market your home effectively, so you can get the exposure you need.
