Most Current Portland-Metro Real Estate Stats as of 4/12/2019

The most current Portland-Metro Real Estate stats are below;

March Residential Highlights

March brought some gains to the Portland metro area, but all measures were cooler than last year in March 2018. There were 3,504 new listings, a 43.4% increase over February 2019 (2,444) but new listings fell 3.9% short of the 3,648 new listings offered last year in March 2018.

Pending sales (2,738) ended 5.4% below the 2,894 offers accepted last year in March 2018 but rose 24.0% over the 2,208 offers accepted last month in February 2019.

Closed sales, at 2,183 in March, fared similarly, ending 7.9% below the 2,371 closings recorded in March 2018 but rising 26.5% from last month in February 2019 when 1,726 closings were recorded.

Inventory decreased to 2.2 months in March, with total market time decreasing to 68 days. There were 4,808 active residential listings on the market in the Portland metro area this March.

Average and Median Sale Prices

Comparing the average price of homes sold in the twelve months ending March 31st of this year ($452,700) with the average price of homes in the twelve months ending March 2018 ($434,800) shows an increase of 4.1%. In the same comparison, the median has increased 3.9% from $385,000 to $400,000.

With all that said-It’s a good time to sell AND buy! Right now interest rates are very low overall. In the Portland-Metro real estate market we dropped to 2.2 months of inventory from 2.7 the previous month. The average “days on the market” (approximate time it takes to sell) is hovering at 68 days. This takes into account ALL Portland-Metro area (Scappoose to Welches). Every City and neighborhood is different-Call me to find out yours.
Here’s the exciting part! The average appreciation in value (increase in home values) is averaging +4.1%. That is amazing! This is an average, as some areas are seeing 8.2% appreciation, while one is at 0.0%. The market in 2019 is really heating up, but we are seeing signs of change. If your thinking of moving-Now is the time!
Please call, email, or text to talk about your home value, or the area your wanting to buy into.
Call me! Lets get you a great house!

As the weather begins to warm up, now’s the time to let your house breathe and do some spring cleaning. Set aside a day or a weekend to tackle your entire living space so you can freshen up your home without dragging out the process. Use this list to organize your cleaning room by room.

Kitchen:

·         Wipe down cabinets.

·         Clean windows.

·         Deep clean stovetop, oven and microwave.

·         Clean out fridge and pantry. Remove everything from the shelves and wipe down inside. As you return items, throw away any expired food, as well as spices that have been open longer than a year.

·         Remove everything from countertops and thoroughly scrub counters and backsplash.

·         Sweep and mop floors.

Living Room:

·         Clean out fireplace.

·         Dust ceiling fans, furniture and electronics.

·         Wipe down baseboards and crown molding.

·         Vacuum and steam clean carpets.

Bedroom:

·         Remove all bedding and sort into five piles: mattress pads, fitted sheets, flat sheets, blankets, and comforters. Wash in that order so you can make the beds as each load is completed.

·         Wash or vacuum window treatments.

·         Clean mirrors and windows.

·         Dust furniture with microfiber cloths.

·         Wipe down baseboards and crown molding.

·         Vacuum and steam clean carpets.

Bathroom:

·         Clean mirrors, windows and sinks.

·         Wipe down walls.

·         Clean baseboards and vacuum or mop floors.

·         Wash towels and throw rugs.
