Real Estate Battle Ground WA Market Statistics and Trends January 2011

Battle Ground WA Real Estate Getting Back to Business in January 2011

After the Winter 2011 Holiday Break the pending home sales in Battle Ground picked up by a third, with some improvement in the ratio of distressed properties sold to total sales...

Earlier this month we checked in with the Battle Ground MLS to see what happened with the real  estate statistics and trends within the confines of the Battle Ground zip code 98604, for January. Here is what we have to report when we gathered the home sales information:

From this quick view we see an almost one-third increas in Pending Sales, and
the continuation in the proportion of distressed properties. This month the 3rd Party + Pre-Foreclosures + Foreclosures combined are about 32.8% of the Active homes listed (a 0.2 point decrease from last month), and they represent about 44.8% of the homes going under contract  (this item has dropped down from 54.5% from last month).

The table below is from the RMLS, showing the past 3 months of activity (you may right-click on the image and follow your browser's instructions to view the Full-Sized image)
Market Statistics and Trends for Battle Ground January 2011
Key items we are looking for in a market turnaround are not just an increase in the number of transactions but, a decrease in the non-Pre-Foreclosure / Foreclosure Sold category. In our
opinion that ratio has started to show slight improvement but we are not certain it will continue.

The Chart Below compares Battle Ground Home Sale Prices (currently steady price trend) and Trends with other nearby Towns: Brush Prairie, Ridgefield and La Center Washington:
