Good Morning!

May home sales in the Eugene and Springfield area were strong.  This indicates a continuation of a strong Real Estate market in our area.  The one thing to note is that the majority of the activity is in the lower price ranges of $400,000 and below, with the market under $300,000 certainly remaining the strongest.  Unlike other parts of the country, the Eugene and Springfield area contnues to be a tough market in upper price ranges.
