Residential Market in Clark County
Southwest Washington home sales are steadily and consistently strong. Inventory remains at an overall low, demand is still high despite the slight rise in interest rates. Currently monthly inventory is at 1.6 months, whereas in 2009 we saw inventory upwards of 20 months of inventory. Inventory in months is calculated by dividing the active residential listings at the end of the month in question by the number of closed sales for that month. This number includes proposed and under construction homes. The average days on market for the County is around two months overall – the more moderately priced homes sell within days. We are seeing an influx of buyers from all over the country moving to the Pacific Northwest. With the popularity and expense of the surrounding areas of Seattle and Portland, Vancouver is a great alternative offering many benefits including more affordable living.
