Good Monday Morning!
The Real Estate market in the Eugene and Springfield area seems to be slowing a bit. I am not sure if this is purely seasonal or if the higher prices paid for homes and the lack of inventory of homes for sale is causing most of the slow down. Currently there is .9 months of home inventory on the market in Lane County. A healthy Real Estate market will have around 4-6 months of inventory. With inflation hitting hard over the past several months and reaching 6.2% last month, it could eventually hit mortgage interest rates hard as the Fed will begin raising rates in an attempt to curb inflation. At this time, mortgage interest rates remain extremely attractive. If you are sitting on the fence about purchasing or selling a home, my suggestion is to take advantage of this current market. The market that we have down the road may look quite different. Here are the home sales numbers in Lane County for October of 2021.
New listings (482) decreased 5.7% from the 511 listed in October 2020, and decreased 3.2% from the 498 listed in September 2021.
Pending sales (461) decreased 5.9% from the 490 offers accepted in October 2020, and increased 1.8% from the 453 offers accepted in September 2021.
