  • The Inventory level increased again to 2.3 months for Resale Homes.

Continuing on, our custom chart for Unit-Sales in Camas is shown below:

At 37 units, the closed sales were higher than the same month last year but, much lower than last month.   The seasonal turning point was at a higher level this year, although it took a few months to make a full move upwards.

Average Closed Sales Prices (chart below) moved downward just a bit; and the recent history has been weak enough to cause the Long-Term line to head southward:

Being a smaller city, and early in the busy home sales season, it may be premature to call the trend above one that has hit strong resistance. With a rising interest rate environment, and conforming loan-limits that are too low for this city, it does help support the case of a local market that has slowed.

Lastly, we have the RMLS Statistics package highlighting several important elements for the past year in a mixed-graph-type format:

The Inventory-by-Month graph shows New Listings taking an un-seasonal hit, while Pending Sales moved up nicely.  Closed sales dipped as previously discussed.

The second graph shows a whopping disparity between closed sales prices and the average New Listing prices - where the average price for new listings is the highest seen in the past 12 months, if not for all time.  We suspect there is a combination of inertia and over-confidence by sellers to habitually keep going on the market at ever higher prices.

The final chart shows the Average Days on Market taking both dropping down to the Hot-Season low levels we've experienced the past few years.
