Cottages At Coffeepot - Snowdona!Four Inches of Snow and a low of 26ºA cold front came in from California and hit Northern Arizona with a lot of snow. The snow level got down to 3500 feet! The Cottages At Coffeepot sit at 4500 to 4600 feet at the end of Soldiers Pass in West Sedona. On Jan 20, 2023, Four inches of snow dropped, and the low temperature hit 26º. We have had about 7 inches of snow in the last week. So far this month, the rain total has hit 5.85 inches. We needed this rain and snow. Sedona and most of the state are out of the severe drought. In fact, the drought intensity equals "none" for 42.2% of Arizona! Sedona is no longer in a drought as of 1/10/23. I am very thankful for this. Our juniper and pine trees have already perked up and look healthy. Last year, it wasn't unt...

Happy Thanksgiving From The Red Rocks of SedonaEvery year we get a lot of visitors that come here to enjoy the crisp fresh air and do some hiking.  This year is no different.  The city has already put up the holiday decorations, and so have the businesses. The image above is part of a helicopter tour you can take to see all the crannies of the red rocks.  Here is a close-up of the above area that shows one of the many cliff dwellings that are hidden from most hikers, mainly because they are pretty hard to get to. Close-up of Cliff DwellingThanksgiving is a time to spend with those we love, whether close friends or family.  It is a time to give thanks for those special and unique relationships we hold so dear. It is also a time to celebrate those relationships over good food and drinks.I...

During This Thanksgiving Season, I Am Grateful For Fall in SedonaIntroductionThis is my final entry into the November 2022 Gratitude Challenge hosted by Debe Maxwell, CRS. I wanted to take a different approach to the annual gratitude challenge. Rather than talk about typical things, I am thankful for each and every day, such as clients, ActiveRain, family, and friends. Looking For That Fresh ApproachI was looking for a fresh approach. My first post was about finding out I had my first child and my Thanksgiving announcement. My second post was about our Sedona Dark Skies and how we ended up in Sedona. Coincidently, I posted it after the Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse. My third post was about why I was grateful for HVAC in Sedona. I took it for granted, and I now have a whole new perspective on...

Why I am Grateful for HVAC in SedonaFor those who are hazy on the term HVAC, it stands for "Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning."  Most of you know that Arizona had a very active monsoon this summer.  It usually starts after the 4th of July.  But this year, it started in mid-June.  There were times when there was a lot of lightning and thunder.  Fast forward to the first week of August.  Our AC went bye-bye.   In July, we had 28 days over 90º and 15 of those days were at 100º or more.  As you probably can guess, vendors were super busy.  It took a week to get a technician out here and another 3 days to get a salesman out. The Big Decision...We decided to have the unit completely replaced rather than try to fix it.  Just trying to troubleshoot it and replace parts, and freon was e...

The Sedona Blood Moon Lunar EclipseThe featured image is from a previous Blood Moon.  It was shot using a full-frame Cannon 5D Mark III.  This is the same camera Rick uses to shoot my listing photos.  The quality of this photo is outstanding.The image below was taken at 4:15 in the morning of November 8th, 2022, with an iPhone 11 Pro Max.  The phone was hand-held.  I was amazed at the quality of an iPhone image.  It is very clear. November 8th, 2022 -  Blood Moon in SedonaRick showed me this image yesterday and pointed out Orion and Pleiades. It immediately reminded me of our dark sky and was a big reason why we moved to Sedona.   Before we had a cell phone with a built-in flashlight, we would sometimes walk to our car in a neighborhood and could not see 3 feet in front of us!  Here is ...

A Sedona Farewell To Halloween I am Grateful For My First BornI just happened to be thinking about Thanksgiving. A very special Thanksgiving entered my mind.  It was 46 years ago that I started to realized that something was not right.  Of course, back then, there were no "pee" strips for women.  You had to go to the doctor to get confirmation to find out if you were pregnant.It Was A Long Two WeeksBy the time I got into the doctor, Thanksgiving was right around the corner.  So I was tested, and the results took a week.  It was right in time for Thanksgiving!  Rick and I were going to host Thanksgiving, so it was the perfect time to tell the family.  Our New Home (1976) In Chino, CaliforniaThe reason we were hosting was that we had just moved into our brand-new single-family home.  Our...

Sedona "Rent Local" Pilot ProgramShort-Term Rental (STR) vs "Rent Local"The only way I can make a true comparison is through my experience in selling STR.  I have sold nine different properties this year that are STR capable.  All of this hit the national news because we just can't find housing for local workers. I am going to use an example of one of my recent sales that had a documented history of rental income of $10,000 a month.  STR properties have been selling for 10% to 20% more than that same home could sell for in an area that does not allow STR.  The property I am going to use as an example is in the video below. It will add context to my opinion.  I sold this property for $1,200,000.  It has no views, but it is an awesome STR that fits all the requirements for vacation rental...

~UPDATE~Check out the Aerial Video posted below this update. This went on the market back on June 11th.  This is when the market started to soften.  However, I knew I positioned this property well.  Nothing else like it was on market.  Don Woods homes are highly sought after in Sedona. He has passed on, and like art, his home designs have become more valuable. My seller is a foreign national, which made communication difficult due to the 8-hour time change. I also had to be there to "present" the home to prospective buyers.  This home has lots of detail that needed to be featured.  How Did I Meet The Seller?About seven years ago, I was on floor and he came in to get another opinion of the valuel of this home he just purchased.  After doing comps, I told him he could rest assured he got ...
