Beavercreek Oregon Housing Market 03-24-14

For the week of March 24th, 2014 residential single family homes for sale in Beavercreek, Oregon have an average list price of $410,450. Properties in this area are taking an average of 223 days on market to sell. Inventory of homes for sale is dropping as is the average time on market. Buyers interested in homes on acreage and horse properties are driving up the median list price as well as the average cost per square foot of homes in Beavercreek, Clackamas County Oregon. While increasing average prices may encourage sellers, another data point to consider is that the “Market Action Index” is dropping which may indicate flagging interest from well-qualified buyers. A lowering Market Index can at times predict a slowing or settling market. Taken together, these contrasting trends of lowering Market Index and increasing prices may cancel each other out and indicate something of a plateau*.

Beavercreek Homes On Acreage: Supply & Demand

03-24-14 beavercreek housing information

More homes are coming on the market in Beavercreek, Oregon than have sold in the previous week. A number of these listings are horse properties featuring acreage and equestrian amenities such as barns, stalls, pastures and arenas depending on price range. Also worth noting is that many properties can be further improved after the purchase so long as improvements etc are approved under county building codes and land use guidelines. While demand may be dropping for the short term it’s worth noting that Beavercreek is a small market so trends may be exaggerated by a small number of sales or new listings on the market and may not be trends that apply on the larger macro scale of Clackamas County homes on acreage as a whole.

Boring Oregon Market Update 03-24-14

Single family homes listed for sale in Boring, Oregon are at a current median list price of $372,200 whereas the average list price is $399,327. The average time it takes to sell a residential property in Boring is remaining stable at at 188 days on market. Inventory of homes for sale is increasing, which may be a sign of more sellers willing to get their feet wet as prices increase and some of the housing crisis woes are put behind us. What remains to be seen is whether this combination of increased properties and acreage parcels available and the increasing prices can remain in lockstep. As the theory of supply & demand has it, this increased supply may satiate demand and either cause a price dip or at least slow the price increase. Time will tell, as historically low inventory has created something of a vacuum in the housing sector.

Factors When Considering Residential Acreage For Sale in Boring, Oregon

With asking price rising along with the number of homes on acreage for sale also rising one may question the sustainability of the market. However, another factor worth considering is the quality, size and type of properties being listed. For example, more higher end homes may be coming onto market in Boring and skewing the statistics or homes that are similar but have value adding features such as riding arenas, equestrian stables, farmland or pastures may increase the value of one home over another that may look very similar otherwise.
