UP, UP and AWAY! Cache Valley/Logan Real Estate Market (2018 2nd quarter stats)

The Cache Valley/Logan Utah Real Estate market continues on it’s remarkable upward trajectory!  The average (not median) sold home price went from $244,400 a year ago (June 2017) to $271,600 June 2018, and the average price per foot went from $104.5 to $117.6 –  another 12.5% increase in a year!  Two years ago, in June of 2016 – the average price per foot was a mere $94, so prices have increased 25% in 2 years!

Despite the increase in home prices and the increase in mortgage interest rates (the average 30 year fixed mortgage rate is now 4.6%) there were 6% more homes sold 2nd quarter of 2018 than 2nd quarter of 2017.  People continue to move to Utah, and to Cache Valley specifically.

On a positive note for buyers, home inventory has gone up almost 60% over what it was 3 months ago.  Currently there are 325 homes on the market, giving buyers more choices, and alleviating some of the frantic multiple offer situations we had previously.  There are also more homes available in the affordable ranges, with 27% of the available homes priced under $250,000. Though there are more homes available, the average days on market remains around 41 days – a clear indication of a continuing strong, thriving local Real Estate market.

Happy Summer!!

  1. This is very depressing. How are people affording these homes on a Cache Valley income that averages around $50k? The only thing I can think of is both spouses are needing to work in order to afford that $270-$300k+ home. Wages in the valley have definitely not increased at the same rate.

    1. It really is challenging to get into a home when the values continue to rise… Just know that Real Estate goes in cycles. I don’t anticipate a big down-turn, but the increased inventory will slow the rapid acceleration. I think we will start seeing prices drop a little. Best wishes to you.
