98665 Homes For Sale - January 2017 Report

Very Low Inventory  for Vancouver WA Home Sales in 98665 for January 2017!

Despite Winter weather dumping a bunch of snow on our area, this part of Vancouver WA has ended up with less than 1 month's supply of Active Homes For Sale Inventory!  Both Buyers and Sellers in the 98665 Zip Code must take notice.  Here are this month's key points from RMLS:

  • 19 Units Closed, with 23 Units going Pending;
  • The Average Sales Price was $292,557; with the Average New Listing's price at $405,841.
  • Cumulative Days On Market (CDOM) Averaged 49 Days - very brisk sales for a mid-Winter Month.
  • The Level of Inventory is at 0.9 Months, which is a sliver better than Vancouver's 0.8 Months - indeed an Extreme Seller's Market!
Starting this year with such a low level of Active Listings, this part of Vancouver is sure to see brisk sales activity for at least the next 3 to 6 months time. Interest rates are still so very low, and this location is very convenient for most commuters, whether they work in Washington or Oregon.

We have prepared charts showing Unit Sales, Average & Median Prices; and Days on Market information are shown below (from RMLS chart-tools):

The Inventory-by-Month chart is showing the low level of activity we see in the Winter Season for Closed Sales , with New Listings making a stronger upward move than we've seen in some other areas.

The second graph shows that sellers are looking for higher list-prices, which are perhaps a logical outcome with so few homes available for sale.

Average Days on Market and Median Days on market measurements are both are less than 60 days which is a strong sign of a hot market!
