The Housing Market Slows As Home Prices Continue To Rise

Good Monday Morning!

The numbers are in for home sales in the Eugene and Springfield area for July of 2022.  The numbers show that the market is beginning to show some real signs of change.  The number of new home listings is down, the number of new home sales is down, time on the market in increasing and the inventory of homes for sale is creeping upwards.  The interesting thing is that even with the home market slow down, home prices continue to rise.  This is caused by a situation called stagflation, where home price inflation hits as the market slows.  Right now the overall economy of our area and the nation is having the largest effect on our housing market as mortgage interest rates have actually relaxed some over the past several weeks.  All indications are that the slowing trend in the housing market will continue both nationally and locally.  Remember though, with each different kind of market, some opportunities disapear as new ones come into play.  Here is the report on home sales in Lane County for July of 2022.

New listings (571) decreased 6.7% from the 612 listed in July 2021, and decreased 9.7% from the 632 listed in June 2022.
