Good Monday Morning!
Here are the residential home sales numbers for October of 2014. October was one of the best sales months in the Eugene and Springfield area in years. Note that the inventory of homes currently on the market for sale has declined to 3.8 months of active inventory. This is also the lowest inventory of homes actively for sale that we have seen in many years.
If you are considering the sale of your home, I have one word of advice and that is to get your home on the market," NOW"! Take advantage of the low inventory and lack of competition. It won't last!
