Average Sale Price increases in 2018 on Mt. Hood

by Liz Warren

A lack of inventory has driven sales prices up over the past year and here are the current numbers for January. Active listings sit at 44.  Pending sales comparing this January to last January are up 40%! Of course, that could have been due to the crazy January deep freeze we experienced. 

As inventory decreases our median and average pricing points have gone up. Medium price currently sits at $312,000. Last year we sat at $264,800 and in 2016 it was a lowly $235,300. 

Once spring hits we'll know how this will play out and if we'll have some homes to sell. Many buyers are making their land purchases for future development with such a low home supply. If we had some new homes to sell they would fly off the shelf. 

We have a major need for any and all types of homes and cabins so if you're thinking about it, now is the time to get things going!

January 2018 Real Estate Sales on Mt. Hood

by Liz Warren

Heading into 2018 we are seeing a very low amount of inventory. This is a complete seller's market at this time. Multiple offers are coming in on nearly every new property that hits RMLS. There is fast and furious competition between buyers. I expect this to be the status quo for this year and many sellers are taking advantage of the highest prices we've seen in over a decade!

Here are the thirteen sales for January. There were four closed cabin sales (one is missing from the list as the agent has not placed the sold data in RMLS). Two Government Camp condos closed. One sold at Collins Lake and the other at the Grand Lodges. 

Area rentals are super tight and many ski families are purchasing their properties for use during the winter ski season. Many buyers are purchasing land to build since inventory is so low and the average sales price for homes has reached $351,000 for the past month.
