As of this last day of March, 2014, the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS) reported 15 Canby homes sold this month. This brief summary provides some interesting Canby real estate facts.

Closing prices for these 15 properties ranged from $148,350 for a large ranch-style “major fixer” on 1.5 acres to $479,000 for a spacious farmhouse on 9 acres.

A Tale of Two Canbys

8 Feb

The OTHER Canby, 1952

When searching online for information on the City of Canby, make sure you specify which one! While Canby, Minnesota is considered “The Other Canby” by many of us in Oregon, both towns have been in existence for well over 100 years, and they share some additional characteristics:

Both communities are named after Edward Canby, a 19th-century U.S. Army General. Both also host their county’s annual fair.

Interestingly, both Canbys had populations of approximately 2,150 in 1960. Since that time, however, Canby M’s population has dropped while Canby O’s has grown to over 7 times that size! Check out the chart below for a further comparison of the two cities:
