West Sedona Gated Communities

West Sedona gated communities offer an extra layer of security. This can be important if you are only going to be in Sedona for part of the year.  The "gate" may be a manned gate of simply a gate requiring a code to pass.  The only manned gate is in Seven Canyons.

Some of the Sedona gated communities offer golf, swimming, clubhouses and more.

Here's a list of Sedona

Sedona Property Taxes

Sedona sits in two counties.  Yavapai and Coconino.  County seats are Prescott and Flagstaff respectfully.  In Sedona, the areas of West Sedona, Village of Oak Creek and Big Park are in Yavapai.  Uptown, Little Horse Park (Chapel Area) are in Coconino County.

The rest of the Verde Valley is in Yavapai County.  Cottonwood, Clarkdale, Cornville, Camp Verde, Rimrock.

2018 State Sales Tax: 
You’ll notice a disparity between the two sales tax rates.  In Arizona, the cities generate revenue by sales tax.  Since the Village of Oak Creek and Big Park are unincorporated in the County, they do not have any city sales taxes.

Zip code 86336, City of Sedona 9.85% combined  (State 5.6%, County 0.75%, City 3.5%)
Zip code 86351, Village of Oak Creek & Big Park 6.35% combined (State 5.6%, County 0.75%)

Property Taxes
We generally tell people to plan around 1% of value.  Other factors can come into play besides just the tax rate, like the Sedona Fire District.

Property tax is at the FCV or full cash value assessment.  If the property is your primary residence however you would pay the lower LPV or lower property value. A percentage cap is also in place so that your taxes can't be raised to much in one year.  I'm not sure what it is , but it's low.

Yavapai County Property Taxes Average tax rate is 0.727% of assessed value.  Call the assessors office for more information. (928) 639-8121

Coconino County Property Taxes:  Average tax rate is 0.645% of assessed value. Call the assessors office for more information. (928) 679-7962

Please don't hesitate to call if we can answer any questions.

Buying A Dream Home or Second Home? Don’t Wait!

Sedona Arizona Real Estate

Mortgage interest rates have risen by more than half of a point since the beginning of the year, and many assume that if mortgage rates rise, home values will fall. History, however, has shown this not to be true.

Where are National home values today compared to the beginning of the year?

While rates have been rising, so have home values. Here are the most recent monthly price increases reported in the Home Price Insights Report from CoreLogic:

  • January: Prices were up 0.5% over the month before.
  • February: Prices were up 1% over the month before.
  • March: Prices were up 1.4% over the month before.

Not only did prices continue to appreciate, the level of appreciation accelerated over the first quarter. CoreLogic believes that home prices will increase by 5.2% over the next twelve months.

How can prices rise while mortgage rates increase?

Freddie Mac explained in a recent Insight Report:

“In the current housing market, the driving force behind the increase in prices is a low supply of both new and existing homes combined with historically low rates. As mortgage rates increase, the demand for home purchases will likely remain strong relative to the constrained supply and continue to put upward pressure on home prices.”

Bottom Line

If you are thinking about moving up to your dream home, waiting until later this year and hoping for prices to fall may not be a good strategy.
