Today we’re going to take a look at what happened with real estate in Eugene this past year. Overall, I think we’re heading into a busy market that will cater to both buyers and sellers.

Our average days on market in December was 68, and that has not changed a lot since then. It’s right at 71 days now, and we have about three months of inventory. This puts us in a market that’s favoring home sellers, so if you’ve been thinking about buying, now is the time to do so.

Our average sale price is increasing as well. It’s at $240,000 right now, so this is great news for homeowners and potential home buyers.

I would advise you to get into this market early before interest rates rise and people flood the spring market. You have a great opportunity to buy a home affordably.

Also, be sure to ask about my new book, Moving Forward: 25 Essential Rules to Buying and Selling Real Estate without Going Crazy.

Ways to Save Money With Your Eugene Mortgage

Today, we’ll discuss how you can save money with your mortgage. If this is something you’re interested in, think about this. If you were to add one extra payment on your 30-year mortgage every year, you could save seven years worth of payments! On a 15-year mortgage, you could save at least a year and a half worth of payments. Likewise, on a 20-year mortgage, you then subtract about four years worth of payments.

In fact, you could set up an automatic withdrawal into a savings account for a small amount each month. Saving little by little monthly makes it easy to make that one additional payment at the end of the year.
