This JANUARY, the THURSTON inventory went down considerably for a second straight year - to a match the level immediately prior to the boom/bust. The great news: the number of sales shot up to a similar pre-boom level. But bad news is the average price still declined...indicating the upper price ranges are still not selling.
For the THURSTON RMLS Market Area, HERE ARE: A decade's worth (7 comments)
In DECEMBER, inventory in the JUNCTION CITY area headed down (following recent months) from a decade high alst year. The BEST NEWS: the number of closed sales was at a six-year high. Now if we can just get price to head up again next month, we might be feeling good.
Here, for the JUNCTION CITY RMLS Market (0 comments)
Sales in the Coburg/I-5 North area remain too slim to draw huge conclusions. This December, inventory continued down slightlywhile closed sales stumble along at post-bust levels. Average price is wildly higher on a small number of sales - but for the second month in a row.
Here, for the COBURG / I-5 NORTH RMLS Market Area, are:
For the last four years, JANUARY has found West Eugene with sales MUCH lower than during the boom. But this year inventory jumped down drastically. That should have made average price hold steady. Instead it dropped again.
Here for the WEST EUGENE RMLS Market Area, are: A decade's worth of supply (Active Listings) and demand (Closed Sales) for the Months of JANUARY 2002 - 2012:
This JANUARY, the SOUTHWEST EUGENE inventory is down for the fourth straight year. That follows a December when it declined for the fifth straight year. Closed sales in JANUARY were at a four-year high. But those factors did not keep average price from declining.
So for the SOUTHWEST EUGENE RMLS Market Area, HERE ARE:
A decade's worth of supply (Active Listings) and demand (Closed Sales) for the Months of (0 comments)
This JANUARY, East Eugene inventory dipped downward for the second year in a row. That followed November and December's trend. But closed sales were only holding roughly stable after being up in December for the third year in a row. December average price has been up and down but essentially stable for five years. East Eugene benefits from having very low distressed property sales due to relatively (0 comments)
In November, 2011, the number of closed sales in Santa Clara reached at least an eleven-year low. The December number was not that dramatically low....but was among the worst of the decade. Now JANUARY looks about the same. The inventory level is also at a FIVE-year, post-bust low. In JANUARY, average price was down slighly year-on-year. Average price was also down seasonally in December, but was up (0 comments)
In January, the number of closed sales in North Gilham reached at decade-long high. What a way to start our new year! Inventory sits at a four-year low - still painfully high compared to the years of the boom, but improving. Despite those positives, average price was down in January. But it was up in December. Perhaps the February number will be better.
THE MOST MEANINGFUL LOOK AT DATA FOR HOMES FOR SALE IN EUGENE, OREGON IS TO COMPARE THE CURRENT MONTH WITH THE SAME MONTH IN PRIOR YEARS
This JANUARY, Danebo inventory was down to a SIX-year low while sales were steady year-on-year. Average price was down from a year ago, but the three-year trend suggests prices are steady. "Distressed properties" (short sales and forclosures) continue to distress Danebo prices.
So for the BETHEL - DANEBO RMLS Market Area, HERE ARE:
A decade's worth of supply (Active Listings) (0 comments)
BEST THING I HAVE HEARD YET... From a senior citizen around 80 yrs. of age. We aren't useless yet. The Fix There recently was an article in the St. Petersburg , Fl. Times. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on: "How Would You Fix the Economy?"
I think this guy nailed it: Dear Mr. President, Please find below my suggestion for fixing America's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, (4 comments)
THE MOST MEANINGFUL (SEASONALLY ADJUSTED) LOOK AT DATA FOR HOMES FOR SALE IN EUGENE, OR IS TO COMPARE THE CURRENT MONTH WITH THE SAME MONTH IN PRIOR YEARS
Below you'll see that the number of Closed Sales in JANUARY in Ferry Street Bridge ties the decade high - while the inventory of Active Listings is at a six-year low. At the January rate of sales, Ferry Street Bridge now has a 5.5 month inventory. Those factors certainly explain the month's up tick in Average Price. Let's hope it is a sign of things to come.
And, while we are at it, Newegg, you need to weigh in, too. This is not the service we have come to expect.
Via Gail Robinson, REALTOR, e-PRO Fairfield County, CT (William Raveis Real Estate, Southport, CT): UPDATE 2/6/12 No need to reblog any more! ASUS is sending me a brand new computer and the Geek Squad at Best Buy told me that my external backup drive is fine, it just needs to be plugged into a Windows 7 computer to work. It won't work on my old Dell computer. Thank you all so much (1 comments)
Getting All "My" Geese In A Row....celebrating 500,000 AR points with a picture header - 02/04/12 11:39 PM
With this post I cruise over the 500,000 point mark here in ActiveRAIN. It's well past time to have a picture header across the top of this AR Blog. But before I could get all my real geese in a row (across the top of this blog), I first had to get my figurative blogging ducks in a row. In the last (nearly) three years of RAINING, I have learned a lot. But until today I had never even entertained the possibility of putting a pix across the masthead of this blog. Then today, I commented on, my friend, Todd Clark's (19 comments)
