In December, the Tumalo Residential with Acreage (RW) real estate market was pretty quiet. There was, in fact, just a single closed sale. No doubt one reason for the slow-down is the lack of inventory. By the end of December, there were just 35 Active RW listings in Tumalo. That’s almost half the number of Active RW listings in Tumalo in December 2009 (when there were 61). Similarly, the overall supply of listings continued to shrink: Tumalo now has just a 5.5-month supply, compared to a 16-month supply in December 2009.
Not surprisingly, most of the sales activity (there were also two Contingent sales and three Pending sales) came in the lower price points. In fact, all six sales were below $500,000. Of those six, four had been on the market three months or less.
After a slight spike in November, the median price for Active RW listings decreased again (from $649,900 in November to $625,000 in December). That may be explained by the decrease in million-dollar listings in December (four were taken off the market), which also helps explain the decrease in overall Days on Market for Active RW listings (down from 243 DOM in November to 209 DOM in December): Three out of four of those million-dollar listings had been on the market for more than a year.
Even with the removal of those four high-end listings, almost one-third of all Active Tumalo RW listings are priced at a million dollars or more.
