Statistics for June 2012

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

The statistics are in for June 2012 home sale activity in the Eugene and Springfield market areas.  June was an interesting month with some mixed signals.  New listings were steady at 494 compared to 496 for June of 2011.  Pending sales saw the sharpest change with a 27.2% increase over June of 2011 and a .09% increase over May of this year.  Oddly, closed sales declined by 10.8% from June of last year and 10.2% from May of this year.  There is currently 6.7 months of active home inventory on the market for sale.  This is down from 7 months in June of 2011, but up from 5.8 months of inventory in May.  We have now crossed the line back into a solid buyers market again.  Remember, 6 months of inventory is the division point between a buyers and sellers market.  The average sales price in June was $206,000 and the average time it took a home to sell was 135 days.

With the up and down of our local Real Estate market here in the Eugene and Springfield area and with the same situation nationally, it is easy to say that we have really not hit any kind of a true recovering housing market yet.  June homes sales nationally were off by 5%.

Have An Awesome Week!

Mortgage Rates

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Yes, mortgage interest rates are dropping again.  Just when we think that they can never go any lower, guess what?  They surprise us by hitting new lows.

Freddie Mac (OTC: FMCC) recently released the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey® (PMMS®), showing average fixed mortgage rates continuing to find new all-time record lows amid easing bond yields following June’s lackluster employment report. Both the average 30-year and 15-year fixed-rate mortgage hit new lows. The average 30-year fixed has been below 4 percent for 16 weeks. The average 15-year fixed has been below 3 percent for 7 weeks.

Results showed that the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.56 percent with an average 0.7 point for the week ending July 12, 2012, down from last week when it averaged 3.62 percent. Last year at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 4.51 percent.

Additionally, the 15-year FRM this week averaged 2.86 percent with an average 0.7 point, down from last week when it averaged 2.89 percent. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 3.65 percent.
