2014 was an interesting year for real estate in Valley County. It felt like we were finally breaking out of the difficult years of the downturn and moving into a more healthy, prosperous real estate climate. But when I compiled stats to compare the numbers of properties sold along with the average prices, I discovered that things hadn’t changed as much as it seemed.
From 2013 to 2014 the market in Cascade held at about the same level. Donnelly saw increases in both the numbers of sales and average prices. McCall’s sales decreased and the average prices increased. Take a look at this Market Comparison Chart showing all of the numbers from 2006 through 2014. It looks pretty dry at first glance, but if you spend just a minute I think you’ll find it interesting – maybe even surprising.
