Let’s Take a Peek Inside the Numbers…

Our Rim Country MLS covers properties from Roosevelt Lake, Tonto Basin, up through Payson, then north through Pine and Strawberry to Happy Jack, and out east to Star Valley, Christopher Creek, Forest Lakes and Heber-Overgaard. To truly “know” a market this wide and this diverse demands expert, wide-ranging knowledge from your REALTOR®.

Data from 2021-2022 has revealed that the number of SOLD properties has gone down 10% from 2021, with 1148 closed transactions. In 2022 we have had to date (11-20-22) a total of 943 homes sold.

The average SALES PRICE at closing last year was $426,531. In 2022, that average rose to $467,076. In other words, while fewer homes actually sold in 2022, the average sales price of those homes increased.

The market is currently correcting, however, and it appears that the overall drop in LIST PRICE (asking) to the ACTUAL SOLD PRICE is trending downward, somewhere between 3-8%. That’s certainly good news for buyers, and it’s good news for sellers, too. Sky-high prices can really throw a wet blanket on even the hottest of markets, so a little cooling off is a good thing for everyone.

If you'd like more information on our real estate market, and you are not currently working with another REALTOR®, please call me anytime. I would love the opportunity to serve you. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and let’s all have a very Happy New Year! ~ Deborah Rose

The Rim Country

The Rim Country

Above it all...

Above it all...

If you’ve never seen Central Arizona, if you’ve only traveled the “Interstate Corridors” of I-10 and I-40, or if you think Arizona is simply the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon and the Great Sonoran Desert, then prepare yourself for what we believe may prove to be one of the most pleasant surprises of your life.

If you were to drive north from Shea Boulevard for just over an hour on the Beeline Highway (State Hwy 87), you’d find you’re 4000 feet higher in elevation than Phoenix in the Valley of the Sun, and fifteen to twenty degrees cooler, no matter what time of year.

You’re in Central Arizona’s “Rim Country,” a four-season vacation getaway that’s well off the beaten path, yet so much closer than Prescott or Flagstaff, and much more majestic than the two combined. Before you is a spec tacular geological formation known as The Mogollon Rim (pronounced Muggy’-own). Referred to by locals simply as “the Rim,” this gargantuan 2000 foot escarpment bisects the state from east to west for almost two hundred miles, and towers above the communities of Payson, Pine, Straw berry, Kohl’s Ranch and Christopher Creek

Completely surrounded by National Forest, these pictur esque mountain towns and villages exist in a unique tem perate zone, one in which the weather evolves through all four seasons, ranging from mediterranean to alpine, and providing a climate hospitable to flora and fauna in an en vironment found nowhere else in the entire Southwest.

On the drive up from the glitter of metropolitan Phoenix, the traveler marvels as the Sonoran Cottonwood, mesquite, Palo Verde and Saguaro stubbornly give way to grass lands dotted with oak, pinyon and juniper. As the altitude increases and the temperature drops, the edges of a vast, sprawling pine forest come into view. Few know that Central Arizona’s National Forests contain the world’s largest stand of Ponderosa Pine, the source of what environmentalists worldwide describe as “some of the purest air to be found anywhere on the planet.”

The trip up the Beeline Highway to Payson, the vibrant hub of the Rim Country communities, is a scenic and gradual climb to just over 5000 feet. Highway 87 continues north to Pine, and eventually reaches 6000' in the rarefied air of Strawberry Village.

Traveling east from Payson, State Highway 260 winds through the pine-clad foothills along the base of the Rim for about 30 miles, through Kohl’s Ranch, again reaching 6000' in Christopher Creek. Then, climbing the face of the Rim itself, the highway tops out at 7800 feet near Forest Lakes, where even midsummer nights require a jacket. Here atop the Rim are seven separate lakes, each with its own unique atmosphere, and each worth a trip to explore.

Scattered throughout the Rim Country’s countless forested acres are numerous lakes, streams, campgrounds, trails, cabins, homes, ranches, lodges, and myriad business opportunities for those of an entrepreneurial spirit. There is truly something here for everyone, whether that “some thing” is a remote cabin in the tall pines, a sprawling ranch, or a magnificent contemporary on a mountain top, the Rim Country has it all.

So, just pick a season... here in the Rim Country, we have a spectacular one for any time of the year. Then, come on up and discover one of the last of Arizona’s best kept secrets!

Pine & Strawberry Under the Rim Pine & Strawberry Under the Rim

So, you’d like a little cabin in the mountains, a quiet, secluded place where you can get away from it all, but Payson seems a little too “suburban”, too much like a real town, with traffic lights and everything? Well, hop back up on that buckboard, partner, and head north for about another sixteen miles to the quaint alpine villages of Pine and Strawberry. Here you’ll find exactly what you’ve been looking for, and not a bit more!

Founded back in the 1870’s and 80’s, Pine and Strawberry are two of the prettiest little “bedroom communities” you could ever imagine, each tucked snugly in its own lush, pine-covered valley, nestled against the magnificent backdrop of the towering Mogollon Rim. Here the residents enjoy all four of the seasons, each distinct from the others, and all of them pleasantly mild by comparison.

Signs of an early Mormon heritage are everywhere to be seen, particularly in the architecture of the many fascinating buildings that still remain from the days of the pioneers. One such structure, The Old Strawberry Schoolhouse, built in 1885, is a State Historical

Landmark, Arizona’s oldest standing schoolhouse. Refurbished and operated as a museum, it’s not unusual on any weekend to see visitors sitting quietly at the old, cramped desks, their fingertips tracing century-old initials carved in the weathered wood, recalling their own earliest memories.

Other reminders of days gone by can be found in abundance in the many antique and curio shops that line both sides of the main drag in Pine. Each of these shops has an ambience all its own, and could very well be the hiding place for that elusive whatsit you’ve been seeking. These shops also showcase the exciting works of local artisans and craftspeople.

Another attraction that’s threatening to put the area on the map is Arizona’s newest State Park, the Tonto Natural Bridge. One billion, seven hundred million years in the making, this amazing 183-foot high geological marvel spans the crystal clear waters of Pine Creek. It is believed to be the world’s largest natural travertine bridge, and as such, is generating much interest among naturalists the world over. The park offers lodging accommodations, camping, hiking and picnicking, in addition to its spectacular scenery.

But wait, antiques, old buildings and bridges are not all you’ll find. These twin communities have more southfacing hillsides and gentle mountain slopes than you’ll find anywhere else in Arizona. There are countless perfect locations for that hideaway cabin or that cedarand-glass, passive solar palace you want to build. And, the views are forever. Once you visit, you’ll want to stay, and you’ll wonder why you waited so long!

Forest Lakes, Arizona Forest Lakes, Arizona

WHAT BEGAN BACK IN 1939 as a mining claim, then evolved into a logging colony among the dense Ponderosa Pines high atop the Mogollon Rim in Coconino County, is now the bucolic, unincorporated mountain community of Forest Lakes, home to approximately 200 full-time residents. Due to the region’s high number of vacation and second-home owners who list their primary residence in several of Arizona’s major urban areas, most notably Phoenix, Mesa and Tucson, the local population soars well beyond that number during most summer weekends and on virtually all major holidays. It’s impossible to describe – and essential to experience – the transformative difference that a few miles can make, from the desert to the pines… it’s a completely different world.

Completely surrounded by the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest and located on SR 260, Arizona’s longest and most-travelled eastwest state highway, Forest Lakes lies approximately midway between Payson and Show Low, and is known for its true four seasons, all of them mild. Because of its location within the largest contiguous stand

of Ponderosa Pines in North America, Forest Lakes is a vacation retreat for campers, hikers, photographers, sightseers, hunters and outdoorsmen of all varieties, just a short 3-hour drive from Phoenix along some of the state’s most beautiful byways. At an elevation of 7570 feet, Forest Lakes enjoys refreshingly cool summers, a spectacularly colorful fall season, snowy but short winters, and a glorious spring full of fragrant flowers and wildlife for photographers, and fishing that draws anglers from miles around. The area is also known for its berry-picking opportunities, particularly raspberries in late summer and early autumn.

SCENIC ATTRACTIONS... Forest Lakes is surrounded by many year-round recreational opportunities and points of scenic interest. Immediately west and south of Forest lakes is the majestic Mogollon Rim, a steep escarpment ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 feet from the base to its highest plateau at about 8,000 feet above sea level. The Rim, as locals call it, extends for 200 miles across Central Arizona, dividing the northern plateau region from the lower central and southern desert areas of the state. The Rim offers many extraordinary views and numerous natural and man-made lakes, many ideal for boating and other water sports.

Hunting for elk, mule deer, turkey, antelope, mountain lion and bear is permitted in the area, while fishing in the nearby lakes and trout streams is popular. And although not typically considered game animals, coyote, javelina, grey fox, bobcat and raccoons make their homes in and around Forest Lakes, among the countless rabbits, tree squirrels, chipmunks, and a few reported skunks. There are also extensive picnic and camping facilities available within the Black Mesa Ranger District, and there are uncounted miles of hiking trails throughout the surrounding

Rim Lakes Recreation Area.

For bird-watchers, Forest Lakes is known as a year-round home for several species, including owls, woodpeckers, flickers, jays, crows and ravens, to mention just a few. In summer, the trees are teeming with various migratory species, such as robins, swallows, doves, sparrows and several fascinating varieties of hummingbird. Other scenic attractions in the area include Willow Springs Lake, Woods Canyon Lake & Dam, Hidden Lake, the Spillway, Sinkhole and Canyon Point Campgrounds, and the Canyon Creek Fish Hatchery.

Community Facilities... Forest Lakes offers a library, an auxiliary fire department, an owners association and a Neighborhood Watch program, and boasts a locally run insurance agency, a number of lodging accommodations, several RV parks, two dining establishments, a selection of local and nearby grocery, general and convenience stores, and professional real estate services. School-age residents attend class in nearby Heber-Overgaard.

Public utilities are provided by APS (electric), Amerigas Propane, Larson Sanitation, Forest Lakes Domestic Water Improvement District, and Frontier Telephone. White Mountain Online provides internet service for the region.

Young / Pleasant Valley Young / Pleasant Valley

Young, as the crow flies, is approximately 80 miles northeast of the Phoenix metro area. From the East Valley, it’s a pleasant three-hour drive up to Young. The town’s name, originally Pleasant Valley, was changed to Young because of Miss Ola Young, who served fifty years as the town’s first postmaster.

To get there from Payson: Travel east on Hwy 260 approximately 33 miles. Climb up the face of the Mogollon Rim, continuing to the Young Road turnoff (FR 512). Turn right (south), slow down and enjoy the remaining 17 miles of all-weather, county-maintained road until the pavement begins again 4½ miles from the north edge of town.

To get there from Globe: Travel north on Hwy 88 toward Roosevelt Lake for approximately 15 miles to the Hwy 288 turnoff. The first 11 miles of Hwy 288 are paved, and the next 35 have a well-maintained, all-weather driving surface. Slow down and enjoy the scenery.

To get there by air: One can fly into what locals refer to as the “Young Interna tional Airport”, an unpaved, unlighted 4752’ runway that can actually accom modate most twin-engine aircraft. It is located on the Chamberlain Trail, about 5 miles from Young. Be sure to arrange for someone to pick you up, as there are no facilities at the airstrip, and taxis are few and far between.

Environment... The town of Young is located in Pleasant Valley, surrounded by the Tonto National Forest which attracts campers, hunters and fishermen. There are miles of trails to explore on horseback or on foot. Most areas in Young offer breath-taking views of the mountains that surround Pleasant Valley.

The valley itself is fertile, with a rich and plentiful water supply. The elevation ranges from 5100 to 5600 feet, which makes for four mild but distinct seasons and a 6-month growing season. Fruit trees, berries, grapes as well as vegetable gardens flourish here. Juniper, oaks and Ponderosa Pines cover the hills and mountains surround ing Young, while the creek beds are lined with sycamores, walnut, willows and cottonwoods.

Winters are short and can be wet, with occasional 3 to 8 inch snow accumulation. A large snow storm here or on the Rim can mean several days without electricity in the town of Young. This adds, we feel, to the “true mountain experience”. The average high in January is 51º F. Low temperatures rarely dip below 10º. Woodstoves are a common source of home heating in Young.

Summer high-low temperatures usually fluctuate about 40º, from daily highs of 80º - 95º to nighttime lows of 40º - 55º. The humidity is low, but not as dry as the desert. Air conditioning is rarely needed in Pleasant Valley.

Rainfall averages about 25 inches annually. In 1992, a very wet year, Young had 33 inches! Monsoon storms in the area begin in late June, while May is generally the driest month. Gardeners begin planting frost-resistant veggies in April or May. It is possible to have frost (or even snow!) as late as early June.

There are major archaeological finds and other fascinating historical sites throughout the entire area. On the 3rd weekend in July, Young celebrates Pleasant Valley Days with a parade and tours of the cabins and battle sites of the “Pleasant Valley War”. The museums

are open every weekend in summer, and gymkhanas are held for young people.

There is a local Mormon congregation, plus the Young Baptist Church, and Grace Bible Fellowship Church. Young also has two grocery stores, a restaurant, an auto parts store, auto me chanic shops, a trap club and a library. There are Boy Scouts, Brownies, and Little League Baseball. The Community Council coordinates various affairs for the town and manages a roping arena and the community center.

The U.S. Mail comes up six days a week from Globe. UPS deliv ers on weekdays, and picks up at a local business site. Federal Express delivers as needed, but does not do pick-ups... yet.

Tonto Basin

Roosevelt Lake Tonto Basin Roosevelt Lake

THE GREAT TONTO BASIN, a verdant oasis in the Sonoran desert, lies in the Salt River valley beneath the Mogollon Rim in Central Arizona, roughly mid-way between Phoenix and Payson. Bounded by Mt. Ord and Four Peaks to the west, the Hellsgate Wilderness Area to the north, and the Sierra Ancha and Aztec Peak to the east, the broad, grassy plain contains Roosevelt Lake, a favorite of avid anglers searching for trophy largemouth and smallmouth bass, channel catfish and crappie, and home to several professional tournaments. Add in water-skiing, jet-skiing, sailing, swimming and general boating recreation and you have one of the most popular water recreation destinations in the region.

At an elevation of 2151’ ASL, air temperatures generally fall 5° to 10° cooler than Phoenix in the summer, and 20° to 30° warmer than Payson in the winter. Although water temperatures can exceed 90°F in July, cooling afternoon thunderstorms are a blessing. With miles and miles of beach area for camping along the lake’s edges, it is the largest man-made reservoir located entirely in the state of Arizona.

Fed from the north by Tonto Creek, and from the south by the Salt River, Roosevelt Lake was completed in 1911. It is 24 miles long with a maximum depth of over 300’, has 128 miles of shoreline, and covers an area of about 22,000 acres when full. The 1080’ long Roosevelt Bridge near the dam on the lake’s western shore is the longest two lane, single-span, steel arch bridge in North America.

Originally settled by cattle ranchers in the mid-1800s, the Great Tonto Basin is now home to approximately 1500 fulltime residents. And although this major center for hunting, fishing, boating, camping, quad-riding and general vacation ing is geographically close to Phoenix, the shortest route from the south is through Apache Junction via the unpaved Apache Trail, so the number of visitors on any given day is surprisingly less than many of the other lakes close to the city. This makes Roosevelt Lake a delightfully uncrowded weekend destination, and a place of virtual serenity midweek.

Paved access from the west and north is via the Beeline Highway (SR 87) to SR 188, which then follows the western shoreline of the lake south to Globe. Along the highway you’ll find the communities of Jake’s Corner, Punkin Center, Tonto Basin and Roosevelt, offering two grocery stores, a post office, several home-style restaurants, two establishments providing motel-style accommodations, four gas stations, four nightspots and a private marina on the lake with gas services and a general store open to the public. In addition to ample “at large” locations for RVers and tent campers, there is a wildlife refuge area at the northern end of the lake, and lit erally hundreds and hundreds of developed camp sites along

the western shoreline. The eastern shore of the lake is extremely rugged and undevel oped, accessible only by boat and jeep trails.

Popular destinations for tourists, hikers and photographers are the guided and self-guided tours at the Tonto National Monument, just a couple miles south of the marina on Hwy 188. These well-preserved cliff dwellings, built high above the basin floor and occupied by the Salado culture between 1150 and 1450 AD, have been both protected and open to the public since 1907, when President Theodore Roosevelt established the monument under the Antiquities Act of 1906.

Immediately adjacent to the marina, Tonto National Forest Visi tor Center features a museum with archeological exhibits and a 12-minute orientation slide program, a gift shop, interpretive literature, restrooms and vending machines.
