Good Monday Morning!
The Real Estate market in the Eugene/Springfield area remains strong as evidenced by the following report. The interesting fact is that inventories of new homes hitting the market remain low and homes prices remain steady. This could point to a flattening market for the remainder of the year. Here is the February 2016 report.
February Residential Highlights
February brought strong numbers to pending and closed sales in Lane County. Closings (284) rose 37.9% above the 206 closings posted last year in February 2015 and 9.2% above the 260 closings posted last month in January 2016.
