December sales on Mt. Hood totaled 18. When comparing December 2015 pending statistics, to December 2016, the pending sales for Dec/2016 were down 23% compared to Dec/2015 I know in our area much of that difference could be weather related with less mobility from snow on the mountain but in Portland metro too. The same will likely be true of January this year. 

 Lets take a look at 2016 though and see what a great year it was for mountain sales! The days on market shortened to 54. Year to date pending sales were up nearly 11% from 2015. This year we saw 212 residential sales close plus 34 parcels and lots. Land sales have picked up the most we've seen in years! The average selling price hit $257,300 for 2016.
