Good Monday Morning!

It was certainly a great weekend in Eugene for sports enthusiasts.  The Spring Oregon Duck football game, several Duck baseball games, the relays and and the Eugene marathon.  Wow! Sports town USA!

The statistics are in for Real Estate sales during the month of March and they clearly show an improving market.  The average months of active home inventory was at 7.8 months and this was down from 9.7 months in March of 2009.  Remember, 6 months of inventory is an even market, below that level is a sellers market and above a buyers market.

Closed sales were up again and were at an increase of 39.6% from March of 2009.  Pending sales also were up significantly at 51% from March of last year.  New listings were also up significantly at 45.7% over last march.  The average sales price was up slightly over February, but down considerably from March of 2009 with a decrease of 6.9%.

It looks like we are experiencing a small bubble in sales activity.  Most activity remains in the lower price ranges and pricing pressure remains high with large numbers of foreclosed homes and short sales still hitting the market.  Don't expect this trend to end any time soon.

Have An Awesome Week!

Potential Problems In The Commercial Real Estate Market!

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

If you have not been to an Oregon Duck baseball game at the brand new PK Park you need to do so. What a fantastic facility this is and how much fun is it to watch a college baseball game? This is a great addition to the Eugene and Springfield area!

Most of the Real Estate news over the past several years has focused on the residential Real Estate market and it's continual slide both nationally and locally.  The situation with the residential market has certainly had an effect on the lives of most.  Now coming on the scene is a situation with commercial Real Estate that is going to also have a significant impact on most of us.  Loans for commercial Real Estate are typically much shorter in term than those made for residential Real Estate. Most commercial loans have a duration of seven years.  What we are seeing in both the local and national commercial Real Estate market is that lease rates are declining sharply. The value for commercial property is determined primarily by what the lease value is.  As a result of the lower lease rates, the value of most commercial property has dropped significantly. Over the next 3 years hundreds of thousands of commercial notes are going to be coming due all over the country. As these notes come due the commercial property owners are going to have to find new financing. Due to the lower lease rates, many of these commercial properties values will be less than what is currently owed on them.  The problem will come from the fact that the banks will not be able to loan on the buildings for the amount the owners need and historic numbers of commercial Real Estate owners will now go into default.  This has the potential for a huge economic disaster as thousands of commercial property investors lose their money.  The investor groups are broad as many of the nations largest insurance company's etc. are invested heavily in commercial Real Estate.

How Do I Save My Home From Foreclosure?

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Our gorgeous Spring weather continues.  It sure beats what the East Coast is having.

Each week I receive a list of the NOD (notice of default) properties in the Eugene and Springfield area.  Unfortunately, the size of this list continues to increase week after week.  This indicates that more and more people are finding it hard to make their monthly home payment and are falling behind on payments to a point that their lender starts the foreclosure process with this notice.  The national and local economy has created an environment where there are just more and more people losing their homes. The latest numbers out indicate that as many as 1 in four home owners could go into default.  

A home foreclosure is very damaging.  It is hard on people both emotionally and financially.  For many people there is a very good alternative to giving their home up through foreclosure.  This alternative is called "Short Sale".  A "Short Sale" is a process where the home owner sells their home and then they are able to negotiate with their lender to take a deficiency pay off on their mortgage.  Not only can a "Short Sale" allow the home owner to remain in their home during the time of negotiation, but a "Short Sale" can also allow the home owner to have a much less devastating impact on their credit.  Today, most lenders would prefer that the homeowner goes through a "Short Sale" rather than losing their home to foreclosure.

The process begins by the homeowner first determining whether they qualify for a "Short Sale".  The Galand Haas Team helps many homeowners with this process.  Once we determine if the homeowner qualifies for a "Short Sale", we then put the home on the market for sale. Once we have a sale then we begin the process of negotiating with the lender on the "Short Sale".  There are only a few Real Estate agents in or area with the experience to help homeowners with the "Short Sale" process.  We are experts at "Short Sales", so if there is anyone you know who is facing foreclosure, have them contact us.  We just may be able to save them from a horrible situation.  They can contact us directly or visit our website at www.shortsaleeugene.com
