In Nehalem for the 2021 season we saw a reduced number of homes come to market on the back of a record low inventory during 2020. With that, prices spiked for a record increase in sold property values. Up 29% from last year. Last year’s numbers (which were a record as well) pale in comparison. Nehalem has been discovered as a great place to raise a family.
The market average increase for North Coast communities in 2020 was 20%. We thought that was wild. In the last year the average sales price up and down our coast increased another 28%.
