Here's a comparison of the number of ACTIVE LISTINGS, number of CLOSED SALES
and the AVERAGE PRICE for residential listings
for the MONTHS OF MARCH,
2006 - 2011
COASTAL LANE COUNTY
market areas, including Florence, Dunes City and Mapleton, OR
as reported by the Portland Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS):
This February and March, the inventory in Coastal Lane decreased, contining a slide from the 2009 high
while sales were up slightly from this month last year.
Last month, regarding February I said, "It is astonishing that average price continues a four-year climb in the face of such high inventory.
If other months looked as good as February...."
Unlike February, March now has no four-year price trend upward.
But, gleefully March now has a one-year uptick in Average Price.
NOTE: Florence and Coastal Lane County joined Eugene, Springfield and the rest of Lane County in the Portland Regional Multiple Listing Service only in recent years. While small numbers of homes have always been sold through the valley multiple, data before 2006 is not comparable to that shown here.
