Good Monday Morning!

The Real Estate market in the Eugene and Springfield area remains improved over 2012, but activity has slowed some and the active inventory has now hit 6 months.  This means that we are currently sitting on the fence between a buyers and sellers market. The first quarter of 2014 will give us a good indication of where our local housing market is going to be headed long term.

Real estate activity in Lane County continued its seasonal cooling this November, but numbers are still up for the year. Pending sales (251) decreased 14.9% compared to October, but bested the 244 accepted offers from last November by 2.9%. New listings (269) fell by 27.3% compared to October but are 4.7% ahead of last November. At 238, closed sales dropped 21.5% compared to October and dropped 1.2% compared to last November. Florence had the best November for closed sales (30) since RMLSTM started recording data in 2007!

Total market time decreased slightly to 102 days in November, and inventory rose to 6.0 months.
