Good Monday Morning!
The 2021 Real Estate Market in the Eugene and Springfield area ended with a bang! Home prices were up 19.1% over the year. It ended with an average sales price of well over $400,000. Will this trend continue through 2022? My bet is a big, "NO"! We may see this same kind of market with inflating home prices and low inventory for the first quarter and possibly into mid year. After that, look for the effects of raging inflation to have an effect as the Fed has to raise interest rates in an effort to stem inflation. This could create a cooling of the housing market. How much it cools and for how long, greatly depends upon the national economy. For now, if you are thinking about selling your home, don't wait. You can still take advantage of a hot sellers market!! Here are the home sale numbers for December of 2021.
