Eugene and Springfield Real Estate Report 11/10/08

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Wow, there was lots of rain and wind over the weekend with more on it's way.  One thing for sure is that our leaves are really coming down right now.  It's truly Western Oregon Fall weather time.

The election is over and now we finally have some relief from the hundreds of campaign ads we were seeing every day.  Whether or not we now begin to expereince the same kind of relief with the national housing market is yet to be seen.  The one thing that I can tell you though is that whether you are an investor in the stock market or the housing market, there are investment opportunities available right now that only come about once in a generation.  Many fortunes are made in markets just like the one we are expereicning today.  Our choice is to quietly watch or participate.

Have An Awesome Week!

Area Real Estate Update 10/22/08

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

There is nothing better than the gorgeous Fall we are having this year in the Eugene and Springfield area.  There is more good weather on it's way!

As the economy becomes one of the most important issues for the political candidates right now, it also in very much on the minds of every citizen in this country.  Sometimes our worries over the economy can become our worst enemy.  This is evident by the fact that there are so many extremely good home purchase opportunities and few people are taking advantage of them.  This is a good time to think outside the box and not follow the crowd.  If you are looking for good investement opportunities keep a close watch on the Real Estate market in our area.  We are finding many very attractive home purchase situations right now. If you are a move up buyer, there will not be a better opportunity to take advantage of the market and benefit from what could be a once in a lifetime market condition.

Have An Awesome Week!

Eugene Real Estate news 10/15/08

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Snow in the mountains and cool nights along with the changing colors of the trees means that Fall has arrived in full swing in the Eugene and Springfield area.

Last weeks sharp decline with the stock market has everyone in this country wondering where we are headed financially.  This lack of confidence is certainly spilling over into the Real Estate market.  This is something that our already deflated national housing market does not need.

There could be a silver lining. Look for the Fed to continue it's drop in rates. Believe it or not they could hit 0.  This will bring on sharp reductions in mortgage interest rates, possibly seeing historic lows.  Look for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to come up with new mortgage loan programs and loosen mortgage loan requirements.  Look for lenders to again have money and start looking to actually make loans again. All of this coupled with extremely low home prices and large inventories could create home purchase opportuites like we have never seen before.  Stay tuned!

Have An Awesome Week!

Community Real Estate Update-Eugene and Springfield 10/8/08

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Our first Winter like storm dappened the area over the weekend.  Don't worry, there is more sunshine on it's way!

Don't look for any immediate change as a result of the bail out bill passed by Congress last week.  Only history will tell us what we just bought for 700 billion dollars.  We can only hope that the most immediate result will be in the way of some improved consumer confidence.  Also, look for the Fed to lower rates when they meet this month.  The combination of some lowering mortgage interest rates and some changes in lending practices could ease the mortgage crisis a bit.

In the months ahead look fo a continuation of soft home prices and the probability of lower mortgage interest rates.  The next six months could offer the very best climate we have ever seen for home purchases in this country. Don't sit back and wait while this one passes you by.

Have An Awesome Week!

Eugene and Springfield Real Estate Update 9/22/08

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

A little Fall weather hit us over the weekend and Just in time to help stop the forest fires and settle the dust!

These shaky economic times have certainly had an effect on our local housing market.  The August statistics are in and they continue to point toward a worsening market here in the Eugene and Springfield area.  Closed home sales in August were off by 28.7% over August of 2007.  There were 318 closed sales in comparison to 446 for August of 2007. There was 8.1 months of active home inventory for sale, this was better than July which had 8.8 months, but down from August of 2007 where there was 5.1 months of inventory.  The average time it took a home to sell in August was 105 days and this compares to 66 days in August of 2007.  The median home price declined again and was at $216,000 in comparison to $234,000 for 2007.

The bright spot is that mortgage interest rates continue to drop and the market is by far the best market that I have ever seen for buyers.  Real Estate investors should be taking action now as home prices are low, inventory is high, interest rates are low and rents are very high.  What more could an investor ask for?

Oregon Real Estate Update

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

What a gorgeous weekend it was and the weatherman says lots more of the same is on it's way.

The recent bail out of lending giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac indicate the continued crisis within the nations mortgage industry.  Several other large national mortgage lenders are in deep trouble and others are just getting out of the lending business.  The crisis within the home mortgage industry stands as one of the largest stumbling blocks for a recovery for the housing market.  Mortgage loan programs can be hard to find at thsi time, especially for first time home buyers.

There are loan programs out there and if you have the right resources you can find loans that meet your needs with very attractive rates.  I have many connections with some very strong mortgage resources.  If you are wanting to purchase a home for your residence or for an investment, get in touch and I can connect you with the best mortgage resources in our market area.

Eugene and Sprinfield Oregon Market Update

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Happy Labor Day!  As we go into September and the Fall months look for the Real Estate market in the Eugene and Springfield area to continue on as a strong buyers market.  With low interest rates this current market offers some excellent opportunities. This is very true if you are a move up buyer.  For example, if your home is worth $200,000 and you have lost 10% in value, the $400,000 home you are purchasing has lost the same percentage of value or more.  This is money in your pocket.  Contact me and I can show you some great opportunities here.

Eugene and Springfield Real Estate Update 8/24/08

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

The statistics are in for July home sales in the Eugene and Springfield market.  It appears that the decline in home sales and home values continues on.  Overall home sales declined by 19.4% from July of 2007, while pending home sales really dipped with a decrease of 31.9%.  The inventory of active homes for sale was at 8.8 months and the average time for a home to sell was at 79 days. 

I continue to say that this is the market for home buyers and those who do not take advantage of this market will miss out.  You will never know when it hits bottom until it starts climbing back up.  We have been helping savvy home buyers get some very-very good buys as of late.

Eugene and Springfield Real Estate Update 8/18/08

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

What a surprise to wake up to rain showers.  It certainly cleaned the air and settled the dust!

I am continually hearing from those thinking of purchasing a home that "I really don't want to get serious about buying until this market hIts bottom!"  I can tell you from my past experience that you really never know when a real estate market hits bottom until it begins climbing back up again and then you really missed hitting true bottom.  What I would suggest for those thinking of purchasing a home is to look at the market and what it offers and react to that more than speculating on the bottom.  For instance, right now we have a very good inventory of homes that are extremely well priced.  We also have a situation where mortgage interest rates are relatively low.  The combination makes for a very-very attractive buyers market.  Even if home prices drop even further, mortgage interest rates very well could rise and negate any further price reductions.  Furthermore, if you listen to the media and react to what they are reporting you will miss the best part of the market every time.
