This Month In Real Estate August 2018

by Galand Haas

Good Morning!

Nationally, homes sales dipped slightly in July, but home prices continue their upward trend.  It is my guess that we may have reached the peak in home prices and home prices will either remain flat, or possibly even start a decline soon.  Both locally and nationally, homes are becoming less affordable with higher prices and higher mortgage interest rates.  There is a point where the market will flatten due to this and home prices will begin the decline.  We are either there or it is close.

Have an awesome week!

Latest Market Activity For June 2018

by Galand Haas

Good Morning!

The numbers are in and Lane County had another strong month of home sales for June of 2018.  The primary thing to note is that the average home sales price continues to increase and is now over $300,000 as you will see.  One has to wonder how long this trend can continue in a market with a wage scale that does not support this high of an average home price? Here are the numbers for June of 2018.

 

June Residential Highlights

 

Lane County had mostly positive activity this June, with accepted offers leading the way. At 561, pending sales outpaced June 2017 (544) by 3.1% and May 2018 (521) by 7.7%. The last June when pendings ended stronger was in 2004, when 588 offers were accepted.

 

New listings, at 733, fared well in June. At 733, new listings rose 2.8% ahead of June 2017 (713) and 7.8% ahead of May 2018 (680). This was the strongest June for new listings since 2007, when 902 were listed.

 

Closed sales, at 479, dipped 6.1% under the 510 closings recorded in June 2017 but fared 6.2% better than last month in May 2018.

 

Inventory rose upward slightly in June to end at 1.7 months, with total market time holding steady at 38 days.

 

Year to Date Summary

 

Comparing the first six months of 2018 to 2017, closed sales (2,439) have increased 5.7% and pending sales (2,786) have increased 1.7%. New listings (3,370) have decreased 0.4%.

Average and Median Sale Prices

 

Comparing 2018 to 2017 through June of each year, the average sale price has increased 7.3% from $281,900 to $302,500. In the same comparison, the median sale price rose 9.1% from $254,000 to $277,000.

Latest Market Activity for December 2017

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning,

As you can see from the following statistics, the Real Estate market in the Eugene and Springfield area remains very strong.  The largest obstacle at this time is that there is only 1.7 months of active inventory of homes for sale. This is critically low number and it is creating a shortage of affordable homes for would-be buyers.  For anyone considering the sale of their home, there just could not be a better market.  If you are considering the sale of your home, don't wait, get your home on the market "NOW" and take advantage of this very strong sellers market. Here are December's Lane County home sales numbers.

December Residential Highlights

Lane County saw increases across the board this December compared to 2016 despite some cooling from last month. New listings (223) ended 3.7% ahead of December 2016 (215) but fell 35.4% sort of the 345 new listings o ered last month in November 2017.

Closed sales (371) ended one ahead of the 370 sales recorded last year in December 2016 (0.3%) but were 5.8% short of the 394 closings recorded last month in November 2017.

Year to Date Summary

Activity ended slightly ahead in 2017 compared to 2016. Comparing the entirety of each year, new listings (6,390) increased 3.5%, closed sales (5,204) increased 0.8%, and pending sales (5,254) increased 0.2%.

Comparing all of 2017 to 2016, the average sale price rose 9.2% from $263,700 to $287,900. In the same comparison, the median sale price rose 9.7% from $237,000 to $260,000.
