In November, Tumalo continued to whittle away at its residential real estate inventory, especially at the lower end of the price spectrum. There’s now a very respectable 7.3-month supply of Active Residential With Acreage (RW) listings. And, of those, only 22 of the 57 properties are below $500,000.
In fact, the inventory of RW listings in Tumalo is now so low that the entry-market properties aren’t sticking around for long at all. Two new properties listed for below $150,000 hit the market in November, and both received offers within four days (both are short sales).
Speaking of short sales, which are not as common in Tumalo as in many Central Oregon markets, November was an especially busy month in that regard, with seven Contingent sales under contract (and awaiting bank approval). By contrast, there were no short sales went under contract in October.
Meanwhile, after several months of active sales activity at the upper end of the price spectrum, much of the sales activity in November was focused on mid-range properties — four of the seven closed sales were between $300,000 and $550,000.
