Chehalis Market Report: Median Price Goes Up as Inventory Goes Down

Unless you’ve been living in a cabin in the woods over the last year, you know that the real estate market is smokin’ hot! Even with diversions like TRID and threats of interest rate hikes, homebuyers continue to flood the market as the housing inventory remains very low…here’s proof!

Median Price vs Total Inventory in Chehalis

Taking a look at this graph over the past year, it’s clear to see the correlation between price and how it roughly follows the amount of homes available…pretty standard. However, over the last 30 days, we have noticed a steady decline of homes for sale in our area. Couple that with a continued demand by homebuyers and now we are beginning to see home prices inch back up to near their peak of just a year ago.

Average Days on Market vs Total Inventory for Chehalis

Interesting graph depicting the areas average days a home stays on the market also indicates has declined sharply since the first of the year with inventory, again, beginning to wane.

What does all this mean? Low inventory coupled with higher than normal buyer demand equals continued increase in what sellers can ask for AND GET for their homes in Chehalis!
