Multiple Listing has just released the February sales numbers for the Mt. Hood area from Government Camp, Brightwood, Rhododendron, and Welches. Number of sales are up and prices are down.


Our area saw eight closed sales. Pending sales are up 20% from the same momth in 2009 and 30% up year to date. This is good news. Compared to last year at this time the "number of sales" is a good indicator that 2010 should be a much better year than 2009 when we were still realing from the stock market plunge and credit tightening. Listing numbers are starting to increase. If interest rates stay near their present numbers this bodes well for a better market.
