A few things stand out about the Tumalo Residential with Acreage (RW) real estate market in January. It isn’t surprising that the inventory is at an all-time low (only 34 Active RW listings) or that the sales have dipped below summer peaks (we expect a seasonal slow-down each winter). No, what’s perhaps most noteworthy involves pricing.
In January, the least expensive RW property on the market in Tumalo was $284,900 – and that property was the only Active listing below $300,000. To put things into perspective, in January 2012, the least expensive Active RW listing in Tumalo was $99,900. What’s more, by the end of January 2013, there were only six other Active listings below $400,000. And, once again, one-third of the Active listings were priced above $1 million.
Meanwhile, two of the three Closed RW sales in Tumalo were for properties listed above $500,000. The average days on market for those three listings: a whopping 521 days (glad to see those listings gone!). Most of the seven pending sales, on the other hand, were on the lower end of the price spectrum (for Tumalo, anyway), with an average list price of $350,236; they had a much more reasonable average of 132 days on the market.
