After months in which the Tumalo real estate market was most noteworthy for its decreases, Tumalo experienced a series of increases in March. On the one hand, Active Residential With Acreage listings were up (from 69 in February to 76) in March. On the other hand, pending and closed sales were also up (from 10 in February to 20 in March). And, for the first time in quite a while, the median price of Active listings was up (from $599,000 in February to $614,450 in March), as was the number of million-dollar listings (up from 17 in February to 21 in March). The only thing that didn’t increase was the overall supply — which held at 18 months’ worth of inventory.
The increase in both pricing and number of Active listings may be attributed to the approaching spring selling season. It could also be an indicator that Tumalo market has reached its bottom. Time will tell…
