Market Activity for March 9-15, 2009

Last week in Lake Oswego there were 16 new listings, 8 houses that went pending, and 2 closed sales.  A trend I have been watching appears to be continuing.  When I look at Days on the Market, it seems like houses are either selling very quickly or very slowly.  3 of the 7 pending sales went into escrow in a week or less of market time. 3 more sold within about 2 months.  The last two had extended market time of 236 and 426 days.  Of the closed sales, one sold in 4 days and one sold in 243 days.  I think this is reflective of changing attitudes of sellers.  People who listed their homes in late 2007 and early 2008 are being stubborn about accepting the decline in values that has occured and are either sitting on high prices or dropping prices in such away that they are behind the market trends.  Whereas sellers listing today, who are listening to their Realtor and pricing their homes at values that will meet market conditions, are realizing quick sales at or near their asking prices.   Buyers are smart.  They are watching the market and recognizing value when they see it.  Correct pricing is King.
