February 2011: Lane County a Buyer’s Market


According to recent market statistics released by RMLS, it’s still a buyer’s market for real estate in Lane County.  February 2011 showed another month of a soft market.

Highlights are:

•    Typical sales price about 200K.  (Median: 192K, Mean: 214K).

•    About 1 year’s inventory on the market.  Figures greater than 6 months indicate a buyer’s market.

•    Time on the market from listing to sale: close to ½ year.  This increase could be due to the larger number of distressed properties on the market, which often take longer to sell.

•    Median house price in Eugene Springfield was 159K, falling to values not seen in seven years.

It’s a good time to buy, and things are still selling.  Contact me if you’re interested in buying or selling real estate in Eugene.
