Eugene-Springfield Homes Sales Continue to Climb

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

It is Spring in the Eugene and Springfield area and this time of year typically brings higher interest by buyers looking to purchase a home. This year is certainly no exception as home sales in the Eugene and Springfield area continue to climb. In fact at this time I believe that there may be more buyers out there in certain price ranges than there are homes for sale. We are currently seeing multiple offers on many homes and this is especially true in price ranges under $300,000.  Our overall inventory of homes for sale is quite low and buyers are scurrying to make offers as soon as many homes hit the market.

For home buyers wishing to purchase a home right now, this can be a challenge and having a top buyers agent who firmly understands the market can make all the difference in the world with regards to being successful in finding a home. Also, a word of caution to home buyers is that there are bidding wars taking place, so be cautious not to over-pay for a home. Again a professional buyers agent can help you here.

For home sellers, if you are going to sell this year, don't hesitate another day in getting your home on the market. Your chances for a quick sale at top market value are better now than at any time I have seen in years. There are lots of home buyers out there looking and struggling to find a home to buy.

This is a true sellers market and one thing that has always been true is that strong markets like the current Eugene-Springfield real estate market one don't last forever. 

If you are thinking about selling and want an easy and accurate look at your homes aproximate market value, don't trust Zillow.  Go to www.forhomesellers-nonSmartZip.com.  At this site, you just enter in a few details about your home and it will generate an in depth market report on your home. You might be pleasantly surprised as to how much the value of your home has increased!

Have An Awesome Week!

Home Sales are up Nationally as Home Prices Decline!

by Galand Haas

Good Monday Morning!

National home sales were up again for October 2014 as the average price of homes dropped. The intersting part of this is that mortgage interest rates are down again and now holding below 4% for 30 year fixed loans.  I would guess that the historic low interest rates continue to buoy the market up and that first time home buyers remain the largest portion of new home sales.  This is good news, but it also indicates that our current strong housing market continues to rely on low interest rates and not necessarily a strong economic situation.  The fact that we are not seeing inflation with home prices is good.  This kind of situation will certainly help keep home sales strong as long as we do not see a large change in mortgage interest rates.

National Home Sales Remain Strong

by Galand Haas
VideoVideo

Good Monday Morning!

Nationally, home sales and home prices are still on the rise.  This trend is being fueled by an improving economy and the continuation of historic low mortgage interest rates.  The housing market that we are enjoying today could be short lived though.  Any increase in mortgage interest rates could quickly put the brakes on our current market.  The Fed has already stated that if the economy continues to improve, they will begin their strategy of increasing interest rates to hedge on inflation.  

If you are considering the sale of your home in the near future, you might want to consider putting it on the market soon.  The price of your home just could be at it's peak right now and it may be years before we see another housing market like we have today.  

If you are curious about what the market for your home in the Eugene and Springfield area looks like, give me a call.  With a short visit to your home I can provide you with an in depth look at your homes value and also give you the information that you need to make an informed decision about selling your home.

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!

by Galand Haas

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.

Lane County saw an upswing in seasonal activity this May. Pending sales, at 461, bested numbers from May 2013 (435) by 6.0% and the previous month (356) by 29.5%.

The 319 closed sales showed a 8.5% increase over April’s 294 but were 10.6% less strong than the 357 closings entered in May 2013. Florence had 35 closings this month—the best May for closed sales in Florence on the RMLSTM record.

Total market time contracted to 92 days in May, and inventory remained at 4.9 months for the third consecutive month.

Good Monday Morning!

Real Estate sales in the Eugene and Springfield area continue to slump.  January saw 160 closed Real estate transactions in Lane County and February saw 161 closed sales.  This is an extremely low number in comparison to a normal market.  Just think, there are over 700 Real Estate Agents in the Eugene and Springfield area.  This low number of home sales is putting much more pressure on home prices, so as a result look for home values to continue their decline.

This is not such great news for home sellers, but for home buyers it means that there are some great opportunities in this market.  There are also more Foreclosure properties hitting the market and these also offer some potential for a great deal on a home.  If you would like to receive a weekly list of Foreclosure and Bank Owned homes by e-mail just visit the web site www.eugenebankowned.com.  By registering at this site you will receive a weekly list of the most recent homes to hit the foreclosure list.
