Spring Market?!?

It may feel like winter but the spring market seems to be arriving early! Homes priced correctly are being snatched up in a matter of days as inventory continues to decline. Canyon County is down to just 875 homes available. Because of the lack of inventory and the buyer demand, the median asking price jumped $6k!

Pending sales increased this month as did the median asking price. I expect we will see an increase in Closed Sales for February as well as the Median Sales Price.

Closed Sales for January saw another decrease in the number of units sold. However, the median Closes Sales Price went up. We continue to see a decrease of distressed homes on the market. If we look at January 2012 we see that 71 percent of the homes that sold were distressed, while January 2013 is only 41 percent.

I do believe that if there were more homes available the Pending and Sold numbers would be higher. We are seeing a large number of buyers from California looking to move here over the next few months. Unfortunately there is not much inventory to show them. So, if you or someone you know are thinking about selling, please let me know! You can contact me either through my website: or by e-mail:
