Robin Kelley moved back to Sedona in 2018 and spent months on waiting lists before she found a home to rent.
The experience was a far cry from when she originally moved to Sedona a decade earlier, when it only took her two days to rent a home.
Kelley and her dog eventually found a home for $1,600 per month, which is $100 more than she paid before for a larger home in 2009.
Kelley’s story is increasingly common, which has city leaders concerned. Affordable housing has long been an issue in the city with million-dollar homes and few apartments. But city leaders say a two-year old state law is exacerbating the problem.
