COAR’s monthly and quarterly statistics are compiled by tracking of real estate transactions in the association’s multiple listing system.   “The minor decrease in the number of properties sold overall in Central Oregon is somewhat expected due to the limited inventory that has been available over the past couple of years.  There has been an increase in months of inventory available throughout the region which shows the market is moving in the right direction.
