Nationally, Home Sales for June Are Up !

by Galand Haas
VideoVideo

Good Monday Morning!

Nationally, home sales were up in June of 2014.  The average home sales price increased as well.  This is good news that the nations housing market trend continues to rise.  Over the past several months, this same trend seems to be headed downwards in the Eugene and Springfield home market areas.  It will be interesting when June statistics come out in a week as to whether our local market is also starting to rebound again.

Mortgage interest rates remain very stable and are still hovering at just slightly over 4%.  For home buyers there is still time to take action on a home purchase while home prices remain a bargain and interest rates continue to hold at historic low levels.  Right now there is plenty of good home inventory to choose from in the Eugene and Springfield market as well.

Have An Awesome Week!

Homes sales in May of 2014 remain below the hot market of 2013 as home sales in the Eugene and Springfield area cool off slightly.

The inventory of homes listed for sale in the Eugene and Springfield area is on the rise.  The number of days it takes for a home to sell is also increasing and the average sales price of homes has also increased.  However, homes sale numbers have decreased from last year.  At the same time that sales have slowed, mortgage interest rates have dropped for 4 consecutive weeks.  This all could be a danger sign for a downward trend in our local market.  The culprit could be that home prices increased too rapidly following the down turn and now need to adjust down.

Time will tell, but look for home prices to begin dropping in our local market area unless sales begin to increase significantly over the next several months.  

If you have a home on the market for sale or you are considering the sale of your home, pricing it competitively in our current market is essential.  Because we may be in a declining market again, you will also want to watch the market and make sure that you are priced with the current market trend.

Closes Sales Trend Up In Eugene and Springfield

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

Yeah!  The sun is out!!!!

The new numbers are in for the Eugene and Springfield area Real Estate Market.  There is good news and bad news.  The good news is that sales activity improved from the dismal numbers we saw in January and February of this year.  The bad news is that March of 2011 was off significantly from March of 2010.  Closed sales were down 17.5% from March of 2010, pending sales were off by 30.9% and new listings decreased by 33.8%.  

The number of closed sales finally took a jump over the two previous months.  January saw 160 closed sales in Lane County and February saw 167 closed sales.  There were 227 closed sales in March, which is very good news.

There are currently 1,943 residential properties on the market and this adds up to 8.6 months of active inventory.  The amount of active inventory has been shrinking over the past several months.  The average sales price of a home continues to slide and it was 9.9% less than in March of 2010. The average time on the market for a residential property is 152 days.
