Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Sedona. Fully 19.70% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Sedona homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Sedona real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
