In April, Tumalo continued to make headway in several key areas. First, sales were up again (from eight in March to 12 in April — compared to two in April ’09). And the median price for Active listings was down again (to $599,900 in April, after an increase from $599,000 in February to $614,450 in March). That reduction — down from $899,000 in April ’09! — should continue to stimulate sales (the median price for homes in acreage in Sisters, for example, is still $669,000). However, the number of million-dollar listings increased again (from 21 in March to 23 in April).
Meanwhile, the number of Active Residential With Acreage listings held steady (from 76 in March to 77 in April), which helped bring the inventory down from 18 months in March to 15.6 months in April). Overall, things are moving in the right direction.
