Woodburn Home Sales Up

Pending Woodburn home sales are up 16.7% over this time last year. Part of this strengthening of the Woodburn housing market is likely due to reduced inventory.

Woodburn Home Selling Season Arrives

This week marks the arrival of Spring, presenting sellers of Woodburn homes with some of our best home selling weather. As a result, this is traditionally the time of year when many Woodburn home sellers consider placing their property on the market.

Woodburn Homes Woodburn Real Estate

Spring Arrives in Woodburn

Better weather can only help the market for Woodburn homes, which saw relatively little change in prices over the past year. In fact the average price change in Woodburn home sales over the past twelve months was -0.4%.

Woodburn Homes Woodburn Real Estate

Regional Willamette Valley Home Price Chart

However the scenario of Woodburn’s stalled home prices may soon change. That’s because the latest report on area home inventory shows a significant drop in our backlog of homes for sale. As a result, our region would now ‘run out of homes’ to sell in 7.1 months, a dramatic 1.8 month inventory drop over the past 30 days reported. Such a reduction in housing supply tends to spur demand.

And while Woodburn home prices have been virtually flat, the latest Regional Multiple Listing Service report confirms the number of Woodburn home sales are up by 23.3% over the past year. According to recent figures, the average price for a Woodburn home is now $182,700, with the average time on market at 204 days.

What Kind of Homeseller Are You?

Originally posted on Willamette Valley Properties:

As Spring approaches, many Oregonians become homesellers. If you’re about to be one, it’s important to realize there is a diverse range of homeseller personalities. Why is this important? Since behavior influences results, adapting to the challenge of selling a home can only help your bottom line. As an example, when selling your home, try to be the kind of homeseller that homebuyers want to work with and you’re destined for success.

Realtors deal with the public daily and work with every kind of personality. The usual result to their efforts is a successful transaction. Real estate agents have learned that their response can impact results. One business executive summed it up this way: “It’s not the what, it’s the how.” So often, it’s not what you do, it’s how you do it and part of that equation is how you interact with others. This involves personality. So where does…

Woodburn Homes Update

A recent report illustrates where housing near greater Woodburn has been and where it may be headed. The latest Case-Shiller home price index indicates our region is indeed bouncing back. In fact, regional real estate recently saw its best results since 2005.

To be clear, Woodburn is not technically inside the geographic boundaries of the this latest report. Yet when it comes to Oregon real estate, greater Portland is the 900 pound gorilla in the room that impacts nearby markets. Changes in larger metro areas (like Portland) frequently impact less populous areas (like Woodburn) as various market behaviors take hold, then spread over time. Home prices are one example, particularly since greater Portland is a formidable economic engine-where commuters who frequently drive to work from places like Woodburn-are employed. 

One other example of this gradual effect on smaller markets by larger markets are mass transit projects connecting Woodburn to Portland and points beyond, like this current railway transportation plan currently on the drawing board. The result could have significant impacts on Woodburn residents and our economy.

More modern railroad service may soon be available to Woodburn residents.

Home Sellers Beat Spring Rush

A recent real estate article suggests home sellers are now working to get a jump on the competition by placing their properties on the market ahead of Spring:

The Spring selling rush may already be under way, as some home owners are already throwing their properties on the market to take advantage of rebounding home prices and improved equity.

Woodburn Homes Woodburn Real Estate Woodburn Properties 97071

Woodburn’s Historic Settlemier House

This trend may have Woodburn area home sellers acting fast. Here’s some additional helpful information if you’ll be selling your Woodburn property in 2014: 

Inventory shortages persisted last year, when supply was at a 12-year low leading into the spring. The shortages helped boost home prices, but gave home buyers limited choices and sparked bidding wars in many markets.

New-home construction is now at a third of its 2006 peak, which likely will keep inventories tight this spring. But, economists say, improved home prices will likely convince more sellers to sell this year, and that should relieve the inventory crunch in many markets.

Long Market Times
Perhaps more concerning than our recent dip in Woodburn home prices is how long it now takes for local homes to sell. The average market time for sold Woodburn homes is now 287 days. This compares to just a 138 day average market time for the rest of the region.

Woodburn Homes Woodburn Oregon

Regional Home Prices A Mixed Bag
House values throughout our region are mixed. For example, while Marion County prices are up 9.3% over the past year, Woodburn prices have changed -4.6%, central Salem home values are up by 25%, North Keizer prices improved by 14.4% and South Keizer home prices increased by 4.9%.

Rising Home Inventory A Factor
A recent increase in our already burgeoning regional housing backlog helps explain why the Woodburn area home sales momentum has stalled a bit.

At the current rate of home sales, we would not run out of homes for 8.1 months. This is a historically high level of housing inventory. As a result, Woodburn area homesellers are now competing for qualified buyers. And with more sellers than buyers, it is now a ‘buyer’s market.’
