Battle Ground Resale Home Sales -
Units Sold Trend February 2020
The short term trend-line fell quite a bit this month although it is at a higher mark level than at this time last year; while the long-term trend has reversed its recent upward run. With the effects of the Pandemic starting to hit in March, we expect these two lines to be in the negative direction.
The Average Sales price trends are shown in this next chart:

Avg Sales Price Trend February 2020
The Average Sales Price made another positive move although by a much smaller amount compared to last month's blazing move. Again, with the Pandemic's impacts not yet kicking in we are still of the opinion prices will soften from this level.
The remaining graphs below come from RMLS for Battle Ground WA and show:
Battle Ground Resale Home Sales Inventory
& Days on Market February 2020
New Listings declined slightly while Pending Sales rose slightly from last month, with Closed Sales coming in at the lowest level for the past 12 months. On a combined-basis this caused Active Inventory to rise by 0.1 month.
The Average Price for New Listings is still higher than the running average of closed prices. Closed sales prices posted their second highest mark for the past 12 months.
Finally, the Average Days on Market fell by more than half; and Median Days fell by about 2/3'rds worth! We expect a slowing in these numbers as the Pandemic impacts play out in the next couple of months.
