Price continues to be the main story for the Tumalo real estate market (other than the fact that sales activity has been quite brisk). In May, the focus was on high-end properties, with an increase in higher-end listings and a number of high-end sales (including two above $1,000,000). In June, however, the bulk of the activity was aimed at the lower end of the market, with seven of the nine closed sales below $500,000 and six of the eight pending sales below $500,000.
The price of active listings was also lower than last month — down from $694,000 in May to $644,700 in June (and, for the seventh time in the past year, close to the $650,000 mark).
One area that did see an increase was in inventory. There were nine new listings, including three above $1,000,000 (which brought the overall supply of active million-dollar listings to 20). Although sales were also up, the supply increased slightly –- from a 10.8-month supply in May to an 11.7-month supply in June. Compare that to the state of the market in June 2009 –- when there was a 38-month supply of active listings –- and it’s hard to complain.
