Good Monday Morning!

July of 2019 saw home sales in the Eugene and Springfield area take off.  Sales were up in July and actually set a sales record.  This is strong evidence that even with the continued increase in home price, the low mortgage interest rates are having a very positive impact.  Here are the home sales numbers for July 2019 in Lane County.
