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.
