An ArrowCreek Property Value Update (May 2017 from Washoe County Assessor Records)

This report for the May UPDATED ‘FACTS’ from the Washoe County Assessor Records since last posted for April, 2017, in ArrowCreek April 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records, shows that we have entered the ‘spring’ buying season, with nine properties changing owners during this reporting period. Unfortunately, this ‘news’ comes with a bit of caution. One property was sold short, which we haven’t seen since we began tracking values back in March 2015. Hopefully this is a one-time occurrence and won’t affect anyone’s comps.

As noted last month, several initiatives are underway to enhance sales and values. The initiatives, sponsored by the ArrowCreek Homeowners Association (ACHOA), include a Landscape Committee, which is looking into improving the water quality around our parkway to enhance the ‘greening’ of plantings, a strategic planning initiative, which has yielded a preliminary concept that has received rave reviews from those who’ve seen it, and an update of the Governing Documents, drafts of which have been issued for owner comments and questions. These initiatives are intended to enhance and maintain ArrowCreek as a premier people and family oriented community.

Since May of 2017 and over the past twelve (12) months:

1. ArrowCreek properties have stayed in the premium class within Washoe and Douglas Counties. As you read this report you will see that prices have improved for properties on the golf course, with an average appreciation rate of 7.5% over this past year, while prices for homes not on the golf course have also trended upward with an increase of 5.7% over the same period, with the ‘hottest’ neighborhood being Sundance (both on and off course properties exceed the Kiplinger number of 6% and are more ‘in-line’ with west coast home value growth).

On with the facts:

a.) Nine (9) properties were recorded sold in ArrowCreek between 3 April and 12 May 2017 (Per the Washoe County Assessor, who appears to be running late as the data was extracted on 25 May). This brings the total number of properties transferred over the past year to 84 or 7.7% turn-over rate for our community. A relatively low rate, still in the single digits, that may be attributed to a general satisfaction with living in our gated community or a positive perspective on our amenities and an emphasis on the secure environment offered within ArrowCreek.

b.) Four (4) of the properties were on the golf course (where the property boundaries actually touch the golf course, not just have a ‘view’ of it). The rolling average selling price for homes on the golf course now stands at $254.63 per square foot. A decrease of $8.78 per square foot from April’s value. The 12-month rolling average sales price decreased to $935,493.10. One (1) additional lot, on the course, was sold. The rolling average selling price for undeveloped property on the golf course currently stands at $290,466.45 per acre, which represents a decrease of $25,332.58 per acre from last month’s value.

c.) Four (4) properties were sold that are not connected to the golf course. The rolling average selling price for off course homes rose to $246.48 per square foot, which is up $2.96 per square foot over last month. The 12-month rolling average sales price increased to $781,205.88. No additional lots were sold during this period. The rolling 12-month average selling price for vacant land still stands at $182,013.50 per acre, a decrease of $4,343.89 per acre due to a statistical change by covering only the last twelve (12) months.

d.) A premium price exists if the lot has a common boundary with the golf course (59.6%). This difference in values between the two categories, in general, appears to be following market trends. However, there’s little explanation for the $108,451 per acre difference between the vacant lot purchase prices, as the difference does not show up in the closing home sales prices. However, it is worth noting that there are a very limited number of ‘golf course’ lots versus those not on the golf course.

e.) The figure below shows the value trends over the past twelve months. Our homes and properties have appreciated very nicely over this past year and hopefully that trend will continue throughout 2017.

2. The housing market in Northern Nevada for existing homes continues to follow economic trends. The spring selling season is upon us and we are definitely seeing a boost to our unique community.

Do keep in mind that everyone’s selling price is based upon their own set of circumstances and the above picture is hindsight, not necessarily foresight. Going forward let’s focus our energy on improving the amenities we currently have and build out those that were in the original ArrowCreek/Southwest Point development plan, by using our already available acreage and funding. With that we should see a better environment for all home owners and buyers.

If you wish to support The Club at ArrowCreek, you are definitely urged to become either a full golf or social member. In addition, the FOA LLC is certainly open to new investors.

Continuing with the Commentary from last month: During a previous month the author received a query about semi-custom and custom homes both on and off the golf course and their relative selling prices. The author’s concern was that there wouldn’t be a significant enough turn-over sample to give a meaningful value. However, with that caveat presented, the following statistics were developed:

Semi-Custom On-Course Homes: $225.75 per square foot
Semi-Custom Off-Course Homes: $223.98 per square foot
Custom On-Course Homes: $322.03 per square foot
Custom Off-Course Homes: $312.27 per square foot

Redevelopment of D’Andrea Golf Course in Sparks is Moving Forward

From News 4 & Fox 11

SPARKS, Nev. — The group that’s in the process of buying the former D’Andrea Golf Course says its development plans, which include a nine-hole course, can move forward.

D’Andrea Rising, a private group, said in a statement that the D’Andrea Community Association board of directors voted unanimously to accommodate the development.

The redevelopment plans include the golf course, which will be built on the front nine of the former course, a three-to-four-hole practice facility, an events center with a restaurant and bar, and a new single-family home development surrounding the 8th and 9th holes.

“We are extremely excited about starting Phase I of our D’Andrea re-development project and very much appreciate the Board’s support, as well as all their efforts in working with us on this important project for the D’Andrea community”, Steve Trollope, the managing partner of D’Andrea Rising, said in a statement.

No projected date of completion was provided. The project still needs approval from the Sparks City Council.

Anyone interested in the project concept is asked to visit Dandrea-Rising.com to learn more.

The Reno Gazette Journal had a longer article “D’Andrea golf course plans set in motion” in (05/28/17) Sunday’s paper but it couldn’t be accessed on the rgj.com website without an account. It was also not on the Dandrea-Rising website.

ArrowCreek April 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records

This report for the April UPDATED ‘FACTS’ from the Washoe County Assessor Records since last posted on Mar 31, 2017, in ArrowCreek March 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records shows that we are coming to the end of the ‘winter’ selling season, with six properties changing owners during this reporting period, compared to three for this same time period last year. Several initiatives are underway to enhance sales and values. The initiatives, sponsored by the ArrowCreek Homeowners Association (ACHOA), include a Landscape Committee, which is looking into improving the water quality around our parkway to enhance the ‘greening’ of plantings, a strategic planning initiative, survey results were presented on 25 April with an ACHOA Board planning session slated for 6 May, and an update of the Governing Documents, drafts of which have been issued for owner comments and questions. All of these initiatives are intended to enhance and maintain ArrowCreek as a premier people oriented community.

Since April of 2017 and over the past twelve (12) months:

1. ArrowCreek properties have stayed in the premium class within Washoe and Douglas Counties. As you read this report you will see that prices have improved for properties on the golf course, with an average appreciation rate of 11.1% over this past year, while prices for homes not on the golf course have basically trended upward with an increase of 7.4% over the same period (both of which exceed the Kiplinger number and are more ‘in-line’ with West Coast home value growth).

The facts:

a.) Six (6) properties were recorded sold in ArrowCreek between 10 and 28 March 2017 (Per the Washoe County Assessor, who appear to be running late as the data was extracted on 25 April). This brings the total number of properties transferred over the past year to 83 or 7.6% turn-over rate for our community. A relatively low rate, still in the single digits, that may be attributed to a general satisfaction with living in our gated community or a positive perspective on our amenities and an emphasis on the secure environment offered within ArrowCreek.

b.) Two (2) of the properties were on the golf course (where the property boundaries actually touch the golf course, not just have a ‘view’ of it). The rolling average selling price for homes on the golf course now stands at $263.41 per square foot. A decrease of $3.82 per square foot from March’s value. The 12-month rolling average sales price decreased to $1,000,782.21. No additional lots, on the course, were sold. The rolling average selling price for undeveloped property on the golf course currently stands at $315,799.03 per acre, which represents no change from last month.

c.) Four (4) properties were sold that are not connected to the golf course. The rolling average selling price for off course homes rose to $243.52 per square foot, which is up $0.74 per square foot over last month. The 12-month rolling average sales price increased to $772,245.10. No additional lots were sold during this period. The rolling 12-month average selling price for vacant land still stands at $186,357.39 per acre.

d.) A premium price exists if the lot has a common boundary with the golf course (69.5%). This difference in values between the two categories, in general, appears to be following market trends. However, there’s little explanation for the $129,441 per acre difference between the vacant lot purchase prices, as the difference does not show up in the closing home sales prices. However, it is worth noting that there are a very limited number of ‘golf course’ lots versus those not on the golf course.

e.) The figure below shows the value trends over the past twelve months. Our homes and properties have appreciated very nicely over this past year and hopefully that trend will continue throughout 2017.

2. The housing market in Northern Nevada for existing homes continues to follow economic trends. As the winter selling season is ending, we are definitely seeing a boost to our unique community.

ArrowCreek March 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records

This report for the March UPDATED ‘FACTS’ from the Washoe County Assessor Records since last posted on Feb 28, 2017, in ArrowCreek February 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records shows that we are coming to the end of the ‘winter’ selling season (Duh!), with five properties changing owners during this reporting period, compared to eight for this same time period last year. Several initiatives are underway to enhance sales and values. The initiatives sponsored by the ArrowCreek Homeowners Association (ACHOA) include a newly formed Landscape Committee, a strategic planning initiative, and an update of the Governing Documents. All of these initiatives are intended to enhance and maintain ArrowCreek as a premier people oriented community.

Since March of 2017 and over the past twelve (12) months:

1. ArrowCreek properties have stayed in the premium class within Washoe and Douglas Counties. As you read this report you will see that prices have improved for properties on the golf course, with an average appreciation rate of 16.7% over this past year, while prices for homes not on the golf course have basically trended upward with an increase of 6.2% over the same period (both of which exceed the Kiplinger number and are more ‘in-line’ with West Coast home value growth).

The facts:

a.) Five (5) properties were recorded sold in ArrowCreek between 15 February and 3 March 2017 (Per the Washoe County Assessor, who appear to be running late as the data was extracted on 22 March). This brings the total number of properties transferred over the past year to 80 or 7.4% turn-over rate for our community. A relatively low rate, still in the single digits, that may be attributed to a general satisfaction with living in our gated community or a positive perspective on our amenities and an emphasis on the secure environment offered within ArrowCreek.

b.) One (1) of the properties was on the golf course (where the property boundaries actually touch the golf course, not just have a ‘view’ of it) and sold for $225.88 per square foot. The rolling average selling price for homes on the golf course now stands at $267.23 per square foot. An increase of $5.57 per square foot from February’s value. The 12-month rolling average sales price decreased to $1,012,315. No additional lots, on the course, were sold. The rolling average selling price for undeveloped property on the golf course currently stands at $315,799.03 per acre, a slight increase over the month due to the rolling average calculation dropping sales older than a year.

c.) Four (4) properties were sold that are not connected to the golf course. The rolling average selling price for off course homes rose slightly to $242.78 per square foot, which is up $0.44 per square foot over last month. The 12-month rolling average sales price decreased to $766,135.42. No additional lots were sold during this period. The rolling 12-month average selling price for vacant land stands at $186,357.39 per acre. Which is a decrease from February due to the statistical rolling average dropping sales older than twelve months.

d.) A premium price exists if the lot has a common boundary with the golf course (69.5%). This difference in values between the two categories, in general, appears to be following market trends. However, there’s little explanation for the $129,441 per acre difference between the vacant lot purchase prices, as the difference does not show up in the closing home sales prices. However, it is worth noting that there are a very limited number of ‘golf course’ lots versus those not on the golf course.

e.) The figure below shows the value trends over the past twelve months. Our homes and properties have appreciated very nicely over this past year and hopefully that trend will continue throughout 2017.

2. The housing market in Northern Nevada for existing homes continues to follow economic trends. As the winter selling season is ending, we are definitely seeing a boost to our unique community.

Two Different Audiences, Two Different Letters, Two Different Conclusions?

You decide.

From the ACHOA website: The Friends of ArrowCreek (FOA), The Club at ArrowCreek (TCAC) and its management team have recently notified its current membership of several changes that impact their membership experience and related costs. The ArrowCreek HOA Board has posted their update letter on the ACHOA website for your reading here.
(Many ACHOA members have complained that they can’t get in to the website. Be sure you are logging in from the login button in the top right corner. Do not use the eunify login box in the top middle of the page unless you have a login for the new eunify website!) If you still can’t get in, the same letter is here.

Notice that the introduction indicates it is a supplement to the letter the Club at ArrowCreek members already received. What letter was that? It is here.

Clearly the FOA is doing their damnedest to have their venture succeed and they are wished well by Caring Neighbors of Arrowcreek (CNA). However, the partial reduction/’furlough’ discussed in their letter to members, is definitely not ‘fake news.’ The ‘furlough’ is being considered IF the membership is not expanded. We wish them well and plan to stay tuned in and active.

If you haven’t completed the ACHOA Strategic Plan Survey, given these letters PLEASE get your input into the process here! A lengthier posting about the survey follows next.

For CNA, Ron Duncan

ArrowCreek February 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records

This report for the February UPDATED ‘FACTS’ from the Washoe County Assessor Records since last posted on Jan 31, 2017, in ArrowCreek January 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records shows that we are in the ‘winter’ selling season (Duh!), with only three properties changing owners during this reporting period, compared to three for this same time period last year. Additionally, the local media, TV and newspaper, are noting a general leveling out of the housing market, if not a slowing in home buying activity. The Kiplinger Letter (Vol. 94, No. 6) notes that home values rose in 2016 by 5.6% but notes that slower gains were noted for higher end homes in most markets. As noted/observed below, ArrowCreek values have been above this average.

Since March of 2016 and over the past twelve (12) months:

1. ArrowCreek properties have stayed in the premium class within Washoe and Douglas Counties. As you read this report you will see that prices have improved for properties on the golf course, with an average appreciation rate of 13.8% over this past year, while prices for homes not on the golf course have basically held even with an increase of 6.2% over the same period (both of which exceed the Kiplinger number and are more ‘in-line’ with West Coast home value growth).

The facts:

a.) Three (3) properties were recorded sold in ArrowCreek between 17 January and 22 February 2017 (per the Washoe County Assessor). This brings the total number of properties transferred over the past year to 83 or 7.6% turn-over rate for our community. A relatively low rate, still in the single digits, that may be attributed to a general satisfaction with living in our gated community or a positive perspective on our amenities and an emphasis on the family environment offered within ArrowCreek.

b.) One (1) of the properties was on the golf course (where the property boundaries actually touch the golf course, not just have a ‘view’ of it) and sold for $300.93 per square foot! The rolling average selling price for homes on the golf course now stands at $261.66 per square foot. This is an increase of $4.37 per square foot from January’s value. However, the 12-month rolling average sales price decreased to $1,002,325. No additional lots, on the course, were sold. The rolling average selling price for undeveloped property on the golf course currently stands at $302,639.22 per acre.

c.) Two (2) properties were sold that are not connected to the golf course. The rolling average selling price for off course homes fell slightly to $243.08 per square foot, which is down $0.15 per square foot over last month. The 12-month rolling average sales price decreased to $775,739. No additional lots were sold during this period. The rolling 12-month average selling price for vacant land stands at $197,661.77 per acre.

d.) A premium price exists if the lot has a common boundary with the golf course (53.1%). This value between the two lot categories, in general, appears to be following market trends. There’s little explanation for the $104,977 per acre difference between the vacant lot purchase prices, as the same difference does not show up in the closing home sales prices. However, it is worth noting that there are a very limited number of ‘golf course’ lots versus those not on the golf course.

e.) The figure below shows the value trends over the past twelve months. Our homes and properties have appreciated very nicely over this past year and hopefully that trend will continue throughout 2017.

022017-values

2. The housing market in Northern Nevada for existing homes continues to follow economic trends. As the winter selling season is here, we are definitely seeing a boost to our unique community.

Do keep in mind that everyone’s selling price is based upon their own set of circumstances and the above picture is hindsight, not necessarily foresight. Going forward, let’s focus our energy on improving the amenities we currently have and build out those that were in the original ArrowCreek/Southwest Point development plan by using our already available acreage and funding. With that we should see a better environment for all home owners and buyers.

If you wish to support The Club at ArrowCreek, you are urged to become either a full golf or social member. In addition, the FOA LLC is certainly open to new investors.

The author’s concern was that there wouldn’t be a significant enough turn-over sample to give a meaningful value. However, with that caveat presented, the following statistics were developed:

Semi-Custom On-Course Homes: $216.94 per square foot average
Semi-Custom Off-Course Homes: $221.51 per square foot average
Custom On-Course Homes: $328.76 per square foot average
Custom Off-Course Homes: $290.55 per square foot average

ArrowCreek January 2017 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records

This report for the January UPDATED ‘FACTS’ from the Washoe County Assessor Records since last posted (actually on Jan 2, 2017) for December 27, 2016, in ArrowCreek December 2016 Property Value Update from Washoe County Assessor Records shows that we are in the ‘winter’ selling season, with only four properties changing owners during this reporting period, compared to five for this same time period last year. Additionally, the local media, TV and Newspaper, are noting a general leveling out of the housing market, if not a slowing in home buying activity.

Since February of 2016 and over the past twelve (12) months:

1. ArrowCreek properties have stayed in the premium class within Washoe and Douglas Counties. As you read this report you will see that prices have improved for properties on the golf course, with an appreciation of 13.2% over this past year, while prices for homes not on the golf course have basically held even with an increase of 4.1% over the same period.

The facts:

a.) Four (4) properties were recorded sold in ArrowCreek between 22 December 2016 and 22 January 2017 (Per the Washoe County Assessor). This brings the total number of properties transferred over the past year to 83 or 7.6% turn-over rate for our community. A relatively low rate, still in the single digits, that may be attributed to a general satisfaction with living in our gated community or a positive perspective on our amenities and an emphasis on the family environment offered within ArrowCreek.

b.) None of the properties were on the golf course (where the property boundaries actually touch the golf course, not just have a ‘view’ of it) and sold for $155.83 per square foot. The rolling average selling price for homes on the golf course now stands at $257.29 per square foot. This is an increase of $3.86 per square foot from December’s value. (Note: the ‘increase’ was due to the rolling average used over the preceding twelve-month period.) No additional lots, on the course, were sold. The rolling average selling price for undeveloped property on the golf course currently stands at $302,639.22 per acre.

c.) Four (4) properties were sold that are not connected to the golf course. The rolling average selling price for off course homes fell to $243.23 per square foot, which is up $0.54 per square foot over last month. The 12-month rolling average sales price decreased to $827,969. No additional lots were sold during this period. The rolling 12-month average selling price for vacant land stands at $197,661.77 per acre.

d.) A premium price exists if the lot has a common boundary with the golf course (53.1%). This value between the two categories, in general, appears to be following market trends. There’s little explanation for the $104,977 per acre difference between the vacant lot purchase prices, as the difference does not show up in the closing home sales prices. However, it is worth noting that there are a very limited number of ‘golf course’ lots versus those not on the golf course.

e.) The figure below shows the value trends over the past twelve months. Our homes and properties have appreciated very nicely over this past year and hopefully that trend will continue into 2017.
