Comparing Real Estate Market
According to recently published statistics from the Prescott Area Association of Realtors, the area real estate market remained reasonably strong in August of 2022 versus August of 2021 but there are signs of weakness.
For the entire market area, the sold median price versus a year ago is up7.4% from $437,500 to $470,000. The median days on the market went up from 11 in August of 2021 to 33 in August of 2022. By most measures, that would still qualify as a Sellers’ market, but the trend does seem to be heading to a more balanced market. However, for the same period, total sales went down from 436 to 321, a negative 26.4%.
Prescott’s total sales went down from 193 in August of 2021 to 145 in August of 2022, a 24.9% decline and the median sold price went down 9.3% from $600,000 in August of 2021 to $544,000 in August of 2022.
Prescott Valley had similar results with a reduction in total sales of 31.5%, down from 111 in August of 2021 to 76 in 2022. However, the median price increased from $405,000 to $433,250 for the same period.
Chino Valley experienced what is probably the biggest drop across the board year over year. Total sales dropped from 62 in August of 2021 to 30 in August of 2022, a whopping 51.6% reduction. At the same time, the median price went down from $388,000 to $365,000 for the same period which is a reduction of 5.9%.
The Dewey- Humbolt area seems to have fared better during this same period with total sales increasing from 29 in August of 2021 to 36 in August of 2022, an increase of 24.1% countering the trend in the rest of the market area. The median price also increased from $415,000 to $446,250 for the same period showing strength in price appreciation of 7.5% which is market leading performance.
Although days on market for the entire market area has increased about 200% from 11 to 33 days in August of 2022 over August of 2021, this statistic would still be considered a Seller’s market.
Is it still a good time to sell? I would say yes because prices have held fairly well, and days on market is still fairly low. Is it a good time to buy? I would say yes because prices have abated somewhat, and interest rates are still relatively low, but they could go much higher before the economic turmoil we are experiencing now is over. Also, the total inventory of homes is up about double for the market area compared to a year ago which makes the possibility of finding the right home much higher.

Fall is here! Bring out the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, cozy sweaters, and colorful leaves! This is one of our favorite seasons here at the office!
However, with Fall here, days are beginning to get shorter, vacations are nearing their end, and normalcy is picking back up. So, we’ve compiled a few ideas to stay positive and push away “winter blues.”
One of the best ways to fight the winter blues is by getting outside! Soak up the sun! With our area’s moderate temperatures, hiking, biking, and walking are all great exercises while enjoying the outdoors.
Here are a few moderate to challenging hikes in the Prescott area:
- Thumb Butte: At an elevation of over 6,318 feet, Thumb Butte is one of the most popular trails in Prescott.
- Granite Mountain Trail #261: This moderate to challenging 7+ mile hike will take you through some of Prescott’s most scenic terrain.
- Iron King Trail: This 4-mile hike in Prescott Valley, AZ, is considered easy to moderate in difficulty.
- Peavine Trail: Located in Prescott Valley, AZ, the Peavine is a 6-mile hike with breathtaking views of Watson Lake and the Granite Dells. The trail is considered easy to moderate, with a few challenging sections.
Make Sure You Move
If you can’t get outside to exercise, that’s okay! Just make sure you’re moving your body in some way every day. Watch a workout video online, or dance around your house! Anything to get your heart rate up.
Start a Gratitude Journal
One way to keep your spirits up is by practicing gratitude. It can be anything from your bed, to your cat, to a great cup of coffee. Every day, write down 3-5 things you’re grateful for in a journal. Not only will this make you more mindful of the positive things in your life, but it will also help train your brain to focus on the good instead of the bad.
Take Time Away from the News
It’s easy to get bogged down by the negativity in the news. If you’re feeling extra stressed or anxious, take a break! This may include taking a break from social media, news sites, or anything else causing you anxiety.
Connect With Friends and Family
Connecting with loved ones is one of the best ways to fight the winter blues. Whether you’re catching up on the phone, meeting up for coffee, or sending a handwritten letter, taking the time to connect with those you care about will help boost your mood and remind you that you’re not alone.
Laughter really is the best medicine. Whether watching a funny movie, reading a hilarious book, or spending time with friends and family, laughter can help reduce stress, ease anxiety, and boost your mood.
What are some of your favorite ways to stay positive during the fall and winter months? Please share them with us!
