Mt. Hood Real Estate Sales from Market Action-RMLS

by Liz Warren

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.

Six foreclosures or short sales

One forest service cabin

Five creek or riverfront sales
