We had Two of them in East Medford. One sold for under full price, one sold for full price. They were both right around a million dollars. We had a cash transaction we had three of the six were cash transactions, one for a 1. 1 million in Southwest Medford, one for 1. 7. million in Jacksonville won an Eagle point for 2. 1 million and one in Southwest Medford for 1. 1. So 6 million or more [00:04:00] closings in Jackson County.
That tells us that we are getting some legs in our recovery, but we got to keep watching week to week. We're glad to have a little bit of good news in each County. We're still waiting to have all of the categories and all of the counties going in the same direction.
We'd like to see it go up, but that's what trend analysis is like. We just have to watch it every week. In the meantime, how about you give me a call or a text and let's talk about doing something in your real estate life. My number is 541-301-7980 we've got a lot of good deals happening right now.
The prices are not down very much, but they're down a little bit. It's a great time to buy. It's also a great time to sell because even though we are getting more listings on the market right now, this fall, there's still more buyers than [00:05:00] sellers by a little bit. Okay. One of those rare times when it's good to buy and good to sell.
That doesn't happen every, every day. In the meantime, stay tuned for our statistics update. Next week, we also have a podcast every week and a real estate radio show. So lots and lots of content to keep you informed so you can be a good consumers and make the best decision possible for you and your family.
Have a great weekend. We'll see you next time.
