Monday Morning Coffee

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

It appears that on the national front, homes sales took a slight dip in the month of September.  At the same time that homes sales slipped, the average sales price continued to trend upwards.  The inventory of available homes also is continuing to decrease in many of the major national home market areas.  Another interesting fact is that short sales continue to be strong in many market areas and that short sales averaged 13% lower in sales price than conventional sales.

Here in the Eugene and Springfield home market home sales were up and the average sale price was up as well.  As with the national market, the inventory of homes for sale is down. Much of the decrease in inventory could be seasonal.

With the election only a few days away it will be interesting to see how the housing market responds after the election. Consumer confidence certainly continues to be an issue, so any results from this election that boost consumer confidence will certainly have an impact on the housing market both nationally and locally. Consumer confidence that the economy will improve soon will have a huge impact on housing.

Don't forget to vote "YES" on Measure 79 in Oregon.  A "YES" vote stops the state's ability to exercise a Real Estate transfer tax.  The last thing we need in this economy is another tax that will effect the housing market and homeowners.

Have An Awesome Week!

The Numbers Are In for September 2012

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

The numbers are in for Real Estate sales activity in the Eugene and Springfield market area for the month of September 2012.  It appears that the trend of improved homes sales and lower inventories of homes continues.  As you will see, the average sales price is also inching upward.

Homes sales for September 2012 were 17.4% higher than for September of 2011.  This was 303 sales vs 258.  Pending sales were also up for the same period by 9.8%.  New home listings declined in September 2012 in comparison to September 2011 by 7.9%.  The number of months of active inventory of homes for sale stands at 5.7 months.  This means that the Eugene and Springfield Real Estate market continues to favor sellers.  Remember that 6 months of inventory is the dividing point between a buyers and sellers market.  The average sales price is also up and sits at $213,600 in comparison to $208,300 for September of 2011.

Have and Awesome Week!

Measure 79 on the Oregon ballot

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

If you have not already researched Measure 79 on the Oregon ballot, it would be a good idea to do so.  http://www.yesonmeasure79.com/issue.html.  This measure stops the State of Oregon from being able to assess a Real Estate transfer tax on home sales.  A transfer tax is a tax imposed upon homeowners and is assessed at the time of sale.  It is typically calculated as a percentage of the sales price.  Be careful on this one.  A vote in opposition is actually a "YES" vote on the ballot.

Good Monday Morning!

Our gorgeous Fall weather just keeps coming.  Enjoy the sun while it lasts!

Whenever I find an article or a video piece that I feel is great information I try to include it with this weekly Real Estate update for the Eugene and Springfield area. The video that I have posted this week is an interview by Dr. Joseph Mercola with Dr. Devra Davis, who is an expert on the dangers of cell phone use.  You need to listen to this interview and then pass it on and share it with relatives and friends.

Have An Awesome Week!
