Camas Washington Real Estate - Another Better Month.

Camas home prices have drifted lower since their near-term high from July 2010; while being realatively stronger than prices in Portland and Seattle. The benchmark 30 year fixed rate mortgages have fallen back below 5%, encouraging more buyers to get off the fence.

Earlier this month we've logged into the Camas MLS to identify what direction the real estate market is heading. Here are the key statistics we have to report:

Camas WA Real Estate Market Report, including Camas USA Zip Code 98607 for February 2011 by John Slocum of REMAX Vancouver WA

From this quick look at the home sales action we see 7.9% more Active listings with the mix consistently weighted relative to the distressed property category levels at just above 1/3rd of the existing inventory. However, the distressed Pending Sales did remain at a very high level of 58.8% (50.0% last month) . The number of Closed Sales, at 17, may not be unusual as the length of time to close a transaction has generally crept up.

The table below shows the RMLS market data for the transactions within the Camas City Limits (which has different results than the Camas zip code of 98607)

The Chart Below compares current Camas Washington Home Sale Prices and Trends with other nearby Towns: Vancouver WA, Washougal and Portland Oregon:

With the current Camas Home prices showing relative strength when compared to the Portland / Vancouver Metro area average; along with a strong upward trend in purchase volume, it is reasonable to expect Camas home prices to be steady-to-improving in the near term. We also have reports from several builders that the new homes above $400,000 are doing very well.

If you are looking to purchase a home in Camas now is an opportune time! Camas is located on the north shore of the Columbia River in Washington State, and features a relatively mild climate and excellent economic base (btw - there is no personal State or Local Income Tax in Camas!).
