How to Effectively and Safely Sanitize Your Salem HomeThe Covid-19 VirusThe Corona Virus pandemic has drastically shifted the way people live their lives. You must learn about the virus so that you can adequately protect yourself and your family. Covid-19 is an envelope-type virus that's transmitted from one person to another through droplets that get into your airways. This usually occurs when you touch your nose or mouth with your hands or something that's contaminated by the virus. Check out our original blog post at https://homesforsalesalemoregon.com/.Handwashing and Social DistancingWashing your hands with plain soap and water is one of the best ways of stopping the spread of Covid-19.

Can You See What's Wrong With This Picture?On the surface, this home looks beautiful! It's clean and tidy, looks well maintained, and is very inviting. But, what we don't know... there is something lurking behind the siding causing great damage! After a careful inspection they discovered water had been seeping in behind the siding.Slowly and quietly this home was being destroyed by dry rot. Like cancer this decay starts small and spreads without limit until the materials are so compromised, they fail under their own weight.   Modern building methods require a number of water-routing steps to prevent this from happening. Unfortunately for these people, and roughly two-thirds if the homes in west and south Salem built in the mid-to-late 90’s, this expensive surprise is waiting for them to...

Most of the homes sold in Silverton during February were situated on  1-5 acres, or less in town.  The homes in town, under 1 acre took an average of 107 to sell, which was quite a bit longer over the month prior.  They did sell for 99.12% of the asking price, and there are currently 2.75 months of inventory for sale, still indicating a strong Seller's Market.  There were 4 homes that sold on 1-5 acres, for an average of 98.73% of the asking price.  They did take longer to sell, 135 days, which was up 43 days from the 2019 average.  To see the current homes in Silverton for sale, on acreage, visit our site.

Only 1 home on acreage sold in Turner last month, so we will focus on the 7 homes that sold in town.  They took an average of 130 days to sell, which is up from 118 days in January.  There are currently 17 homes for sale, creating 2.42 months of inventory, still a Seller's Market.  Once the data comes out for March, we will begin to know the affects of the current virus on the real estate market.  To see the current homes on acreage for sale in Turner, Oregon click the link.

Like many other areas around the Valley, Jefferson Oregon saw very few homes on acreage sell last month.  So, we will talk about the homes that sold in town in February.  Six homes sold last month in Jefferson, 3x's the number in January.  So that is great news.  They sold pretty quickly too, just 55 days from start to closing.  Average price was over 101% of the asking price.  And of course the current inventory of homes for sale in Jefferson is basically none existant, keeping the demand high.  Of course as March plays out, we will see the affect of COVID 19 virus, as many clients are asking.  If you would like to preview the current homes for sale in Jefferson, please visit our website. NOTICE:  Due to the current virus outbreak, all real estate consultations are done over the phone ...

There were 39 currently available at the time of collecting this data, which created a 3.54 months of inventory.  Still a Seller's Market, closely following the trend in January.

There were hardly any sales of acreage homes in Aumsville last month, 1 to be exact.  So, let's talk about the houses that sold in town.  There were more over the prior month, up to 9 from 4 in January.  But, the average price was quite a bit higher.  In fact, they sold for over 101% of the asking price, compared to just 98.1% in January.  With 8 homes currently for sale, without a pending offer, the inventory is extremely low, .88 month's supply.  Remember, anything under 6 months supply is considered a Seller's Market.   The data for March will begin to reflect how the virus will affect the market, it is just to early to tell right now.  To see the current homes on acreage for sale in Aumsville, visit our website. NOTICE:  Due to the current virus, all real estate consultations are be...

How was the real estate market in January? I know I know, I am about 30 days late getting this out.  But, better late than never.Only one large acreage property sold in January, but 8 homes in town did sell. This low inventory is pretty seasonal for January, but we are seeing a shortage of inventory across the board. Of the 8 homes that sold in town, the average sold price increased over all of 2019, as did the list to sale ratio.  Sellers saw 99.26% of their asking price.  There were28 homes for sale in January, creating a 3.5 month inventory of supply, which still indicates a seller's market, but it is slowly creeping towards a balanced market.To see the full infograph for the Silverton Real Estate Market Update in January, click the link.

How was the real estate market in January?   Yes, yes, I know, I am about 30 days late getting this information out.  But, better late than never, right?Just 3 properties between 5-10 acres sold in January, mostly because of low inventory.  But, they sold fast, with an average of 58 days. And that includes escrow time.  Nine properties sold with 1-4.99 acres, but the sellers took more discount, with an average sales price of 95.79 % of the asking price. To see the full infograph of homes sold in January based on lot size, click the link.

How was the real estate market in January for Aumsville?  Basically no homes on acreage sold in January, but a few did sell in town.  There were 11 homes in town for sale, most of which are pending now.  We still expect to see a tight market for Spring, with low inventory and super low interest rates.To see the full infograph click on the link Aumsville Oregon Real Estate Update for January 2020

How was the real estate market in Turner during January of this year? Only 2 homes on acreage sold, but that is pretty normal right now for the time of year combined with low inventory. Those 2 properties sold in 63 days, down from the 2019 average of 94 days.  Seven homes sold in town in January, taking 118 days on the market, up from 104 in 2019.  There were 17 homes listed as active in January, giving an inventory rate of 2.42 months.  Still, a very strong seller's market.To see the full infograph for the Turner Oregon Real Estate Review in January of 2020, click the link.

How was the real estate market in Stayton during January?  Very few homes on acreage sold in January, but that is pretty typical for the season.  We are continuing to see a shortage of inventory all across the valley, which is keeping us in a strong seller's market.  Sellers saw a list to sale ratio of 99.32%, negotiating very little on the asking price. Six homes sold in town, and there were 8 for sale in January, creating 1.33 months of inventory, still a strong seller's market.To see the full infograph for Stayton Oregon Real Estate Update for January click the link.

How was the real estate market in January?  Only 2 homes on acreage sold in January, but that is pretty typical for the season.  Only 2 homes in Jefferson sold also for the month, but they did sell for more than asking price.  Between low inventories and low interest rates we expect to still see a tight real estate market for the Spring.  Real Estate values are at an all time high, which is great news for sellers, but not so great for buyers.To see the full infograph click the link for Jefferson Oregon Real Estate Updates for January 2020.

How is the rural real estate market around Aumsville, Oregon?  Glad you asked!  I have compiled the data for all of 2019, breaking it down by acreage size with a home.  Less than 1 acre, 1-4.99 acres, 5-9.99 acres, 10-19.99 acres and 20+acres. This information came from the Willamette Valley Multiple Listing Service.  You can find out how long it took the homes to sell, the average sold price, the average discount given by sellers, how many of those are currently for sale, and the month's of inventory.  Month's of inventory is very indicative of the type of market we are in.  Anything under 6 months  shows that we are in a seller's market.  Six months and over shows that we are in a buyer's market. If you click the link you will see the full infograph for the 2019 Aumsville Oregon Rural...

Check out the Annual Real Estate data for Stayton, Oregon.  The information was collected from the Willamette Valley Multiple Listing System in January of 2020.   Have you been looking for a home on 5+ acres in Stayton?  You might as well be looking for a unicorn!  As you can see, very few homes were listed and sold with 5 or more acres last year.  Of course we will see some additional inventory this Spring, as we do every year, but will it be enough to meet the demand?  Click the link to see the full infograph with each acreage category for Stayton Oregon Real Estate Review.Want to see what country homes are currently for sale in Stayton, Oregon?  We have a complete list for you!
