The statistics are in: April 2012

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

It looks like the sun has given way to clouds and rain for a few days.  The 17 days without rain that we just experienced was the longest dry spell in May in over 20 years for Eugene and Springfield! It was very welcome!

The statistics are in for April Real Estate Action in the Eugene and Springfield market areas.  The numbers indicate that we still have a ways to go before the market here is in a true recovery mode.  New listings were up in April and they increased by 11.3% over April of 2011 and were up a whopping 25.5% over March of this year.  Pending sales were also up over April of last year.  They improved by 10.7% over April of 2011 and were also up by 9.6% over last month. A negative statistic was that closed home sales were off by 2.1% from April of 2011 and down 4.4% from April of this year.  This is not a good trend to be seeing as we head into Summer.  There is currently 6.9 months of active inventory of homes for sale.  This is also up from 6.3 months that we had in March of this year.  The average sales price in April was $184,600, which is down considerably from April of 2011 when it was $207,900.  This indicates that our slide in home values may be far from over.  The average time it took for a home to sell in April was 156 days.

We can all hope that the step back that took place in April was just a blip in the market and not a long term trend. We will know more by next month.

Have An Awesome Week!

Monday Morning Coffee

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

What a gourgeous weekend for the Eugene and Springfield area!  It was truly a touch of Summer.

Nationally, median price range homes are beginning to sell at a much stronger pace according to the National Association of Realtors.  This is good news because the stongest home sale activity has been in the lower price ranges.  An increase in the sale of median priced homes could indicate some further recovery for our national housing market.  

The last several months have indicated some movement towards recovery in the national housing market.  The continuation of historic low mortgage interest rates has certainly helped. Even with this good news the housing market both nationally and locally remains extremely fragile.  Any kind of economic blip could have severe consequiences and send home sales into a tail spin.  Let's all hope that the worst is far behind us.

Things to know before selling your home in this market

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

If you are considering the sale of your home you will want to watch this video.  As a very good friend of mine who is one of the top Real Estate agents in the country says, "selling your home in this market is a combination between a price war and a beauty contest."  She is so right!  Not only does your home need to be priced at a value that is accepted by the current market, but your home has to look better and show better than your competition.  If you do these two things right your home will sell at top marlet value.

I see many sellers who do not know what to do to get their  home ready for the market and I also see them spending money in ways that they may not need to.  With a simple visit to your home I can give you pointers on the best things to do to get your home sold and which fix ups or upgrades will give you the very best return on your investment.  

Have An Awesome Week!

The Eugene and Springfield Real Estate market is very interesting right now.  There seems to be good buyer activity in the home price ranges of $175,000 and below.  Above that it is spotty.  Homes above $300,000 just are not getting many showings right now. We need the upper end home market here to take off!
