The Market is “Looking Up”

January is always a good time to take a look at Market Trends.  Just how did the previous year shake out when looking at the Total Volume in Residential Real Estate on Mt Hood?  Also, where did the Median Price and the Number of Sales stack up when compared to the year before?

So, I decided to take a look at not just last year, but the last ten years of data for the Mt Hood Area, includingWelches, Brightwood, Rhododendron, Government Camp and part of Sandy Oregon.

It took until the 3rd quarter of 2012 to finally see the market experience “appreciation” for the first time in years! We have to remind ourselves, that this indeed has been a very challenging real estate market nation wide.

Numbers don’t lie.  We have indeed crawled out of a big Hole!!
