I am a Realtor living in Newport and working in Yachats Or., So, I cover a good portion of Lincoln County.
As most of the country we have also been affected by the slowdown in the Real Estate and Finance industries. Our market has seen a depreciation of about 20% over the last year. Prices have fallen.
As a buyer, now is a great time to purchase property at the beach.

FYI.. I am a buyer's agent which means I specialize in helping buyer's find their perfect property so I'd be happy to help. You can email or call me to let me know what you are looking for and I'll keep an eye out.
You can find that information right here on the Trulia Website. Go to Real Estate Guides, pick the city (or general area) and state you are looking for, you will get some good statistical info, such as avg. home price, avg. price per square foot, schools, price trends and average family home.
That will take some work.
Newport is a very low income area until you throw in the weekenders and than is goes up. I am not a Newport officianado other than I go there.
I am sure somebody can get that factor. What is it that this detail is going to help you assess? Are you looking to move into an influential area? Or is it that you want to buy in an area where incomes are high and homes low? Whatever numbers you get for the Oregon Coast will likely be deceptive. The entire Coast is a tourist area and the base economy is fishing and Timber. Tourism is the #1 Industry. This is a real story of the haves and the have nots.
Pretty depressed Real estate market as well.
I think you will get a better bit of info if you ask clearly what it is that you need to know.
