Market statistics are in from multiple listing service for area 153 which covers Government Camp, Welches, Rhdodendron and Brightwood. March was a very active month for closed sales totaling 12 sales. Fifty percent of those sales were foreclosures. Take a look at the numbers from NAR. In February the national percentage of distressed sales was hovering at 34%. As the backlog of foreclosures enter the market this year it's likely the national number will go back up towards 40%. Mountain sales for the month are listed below this graph.

Twelve sales. Five were cash and two purchases were USDA loans. This would be homes for primary home use and income limits to qualify for this type of loan.

Here is a recent chart of activity comparing last year to this year in our Mt. Hood real estate area from Government Camp, Welches, Brightwood, and Rhododendron. This is direct from RMLS reflecting activity in July 2011.

Mt. Hood Real Estate Sales for July 2011 from RMLS

Comparing 2010 to 2011 pending sales are down 45%. Our average sale price, year to date, is down 11.1%. This figure doesn't give much of an indicator though due to so little data. Closed sales by the end of July for the mountain hit 49. This is really surprising considering the incredible interest rates available. Now is the time to buy on the mountain with plenty of inventory and excellent rates for great affordability. 

The multiple listing service just came out with the Mt. Hood area statistics for June. This is for sales including Government Camp, Welches, Rhododendron and Brightwood. Number of sales were substantially up to eleven sales! Total sales since the beginning of the year hit 39.

Summer has finally arrived and many sellers have placed their properties on the market for the prime summer season. Incredible deals are available with many motivated sellers. It's the perfect time to purchase while interest rates are low making homes more affordable. This could be a once in a generation opportunity according to CBS Money Watch.
