In many ways, the Residential real estate market in Tumalo during September was almost identical to September 2013. There’s the number of Active listings: 55 in September 2014, 53 in September 2013. There’s the number of Closed sales: 10 in September 2014, nine in September 2013. There’s the most expensive Active listing:$6,600,000 in September 2014; $6,700,000 in September 2013.
However, the differences between the two months are perhaps more telling. The average price of Active RW listings, for example, in September 2014 was $757,000 — significantly higher than in September 2013, when it was $575,000. The most popular price point for Active listings has also risen: In September 2013, it was the $450,000-$499,999 range; in September 2014, however, there was a tie between the $550,000-$599,999 and $750,000-$799,999 ranges. Likewise, the number of Active million-dollar listings has risen sizably since September 2013: up from nine to 17.
On the other hand, the median price of properties that sold in September 2014 is significantly lower than it was in September 2013: $415,750, compared to $461,000.
Meanwhile, the overall inventory (which is determined by dividing the number of Active listings by the previous 12 months of sales) has risen a bit: up from a 6.9-month supply in September 2013 to an eight-month supply in September 2014.
