[00:00:00] Hey, everybody, welcome back to the market statistics for Southern Oregon. This is for the week ending October 17th, 2023 for the residential single family home market, all three counties. Let's start with Klamath Falls, Klamath Falls Klamath County.

Now, Jackson County has a little different story this week. Prices were up. Year over year this week in Jackson County up [00:02:00] 6%. Congratulations, that's a big deal. The average single family residential home now costing 520, 772. The number of sold year over year in Jackson County were down 6%. There were 55 closings in the residential area this week.

There were no short sales closing this week in Jackson County, but there were 4 Million dollar sales. We had two in East Medford, one in Ashland and one in Jacksonville. Interestingly enough, three of those 1, 000, 000 sales were cash. Isn't that interesting?
So our little market in fits and starts, I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but we do have something of a recovery. We [00:03:00] do have other market people watching. People from NAR, people from different websites, people from the government, and we're starting to see a little more encouragement that the market may finish in 2023 with a little tiny bit of up, when this time last year we were bracing for a little bit of down so super exciting.
We're still struggling with not enough listings. And if anybody is thinking of putting their house on the market next year, you might want to consider putting it on now. And we also have people making decisions this time of year if they've been on the market, and they're not getting the showings they want, or they're not getting the offers they want, they're doing some kind of price change. They're doing some kind of gussying up with the property.
Some people are putting in a tenant and some people are going off market. So I still look for a pretty strong fall and a pretty strong winter, which normally in Southern Oregon, we have a little bit of [00:04:00] a sag a little bit of a slowdown. But I'm looking to see some pent up demand from the buyers that waited all year as they were struggling with the interest rate increases and having to get pre approved over and over again.
And then also just not having enough houses to choose from. So it looks like we are, inventory is trying to go up. I know that a lot of the lenders are having a really big October. A lot of the real estate agents are having a really big October. There's a lot of pending signs all around the Valley.
