Here are the numbers for the February 2017 Real Estate market in the Eugene and Springfield area. As you can see, there was little change. The inventory of homes for sale remains critically low and the result is fewer sales and higher home prices. The Eugene/Springfield area remains as one of the lowest areas in the country for active homes for sale at just 2.2 months of active inventory available. All that I can say is the same thing that I have been saying. If you are thinking about selling your home in the near future, this is the top of the market for home pricing and you should take advantage of it. Here are the numbers for February.
