There weren’t a lot of changes in the Sisters real estate market from March to April –- or from April ’09 to April ’10, for that matter — when it comes to the number of listings. In April ‘09, there were 180 Active listings (100 Single Family Residences and 80 Residential with Acreage); in April ’10, there were 188 (103 Single Family Residences and 85 Residential With Acreage.
However, sales were up dramatically from April ’09 to April ’10 (only two in April ’09 compared to 15 in April ’10). And the median sales price for Active listings has experienced some fairly dramatic shifting. In April ’09, the median sales price for Active Single Family Residential listings was $425,000; in April ’10, it was $469,000 – quite a shift from the March ’10 median sales price of $384,900. Meanwhile, the median sales price for Active Residential with Acreage listings has decreased from $730,000 in April ’09 to $669,000 in April ‘10.
