Good Monday Morning!

It looks like a great week for more Summer weather. Many years September offers us our best weather of the year.

The home sales statistics for Eugene and Springfield are in for July.  The number of homes for sale keeps increasing, while sales continue to slow.  In July there  was 6 months of inventory.  This means that at the current rate of sales it would take 6 months for all of the listed homes to sell.  In comparison, July of 2006 saw 3.8 months of inventory for sale.  The interesting thing here is that 6 months of inventory is the official breaking line between a sellers market and a buyers market.  We are now officially in a buyers market.

Other statistics show that we had 2,215 active home listings, the average home sales price was $267,800, closed sales were down by 4.5% and the median home sales price increased by 10.3%.  A point of interest is that home prices continue to increase even with the slower market. 

Have An Awesome Week!
