Good Monday Morning!
Home sale numbers for February 2022 are in and they don't reflect much change with the exception of home sales prices. The price of homes in the Eugene and Springfield area continues to escalate. The sellers market of the last couple of years continues as the inventory of homes for sale remains extraordinarily low. February had .9 months of inventory. This means that if no new homes were to hit the market, our current inventory of homes for sale would be gone in about 3 weeks. A healthy market would have 3-6 months of inventory. With mortgage interest rates rising and inflation continuing to plague us, the market you see today will not be the market of the near future. Here is the home sale report from RMLS for Lane County in the month of February 2022.
New listings (427) increased 21.3% from the 352 listed in February 2021, and increased 26.7% from the 337 listed in January 2022.
Pending sales (402) increased 12.9% from the 356 offers accepted in February 2021, and increased 20.0% from the 335 offers accepted in January 2022.
