To the suburbs and beyond …


While some people prefer to avoid the hustle and bustle of urban living, sometimes suburbs are not rural enough for their lifestyles. They want to live in the “exurbs,” which are farther outside the city than the suburbs.

Some home buyers are seeking several acres of usable land for extensive gardening with room for chickens, goats or horses. The exurbs are often preferred by people who work from home or want a second home or vacation property.

The larger lots in the exurbs allow for more privacy and less crime. However, few exurbs provide sidewalks or jogging trails. And there’s not a Starbucks on every corner. For more information on options for a Suburban move call, email, or test me to start the conversation.

The very latest real estate numbers & stats for Portland-Metro as of 2-15-2018

The first month of 2018 is in the books! The real estate numbers look pretty darn good! Take a look at the graphs. there are three that give different , and the most CURRENT information on our Portland-Metro real estate market.

Inventory rose a bit in January, ending at 2.2 months. 2.2 months is still a low number. Ideally, we want months of inventory to be around 5-7. This just means we are in  a sellers market still. Anything under 6 months of inventory is a Seller’s market.  During the same period, total market time increased by five days to end at 60 days. This in conjunction with the low inventory send a signal that possibly we will see more homes on the market soon.

We are seeing, on average, +7.6% appreciation in homes. That is a very good number. Where else can you get +7.6% growth, on average, just by living in your home, having a rental, or holding property? The median appreciation is even higher at +8.6%! I’m a big advocate for home ownership. It’s just a win, win, win all around for YOU!

Finally, take a look at the graph that breaks down the different Portland-Metro locations and their individual stats! Days on the market, appreciation schedule, average sales price, etc.  We are seeing POSITIVE appreciation in all areas. the highest is Mt. Hood at 16.2% and the least is West Portland at 3.2%. Take a look at the areas that you live or are interested in. Each neighbor hood also has different appreciation values.

If you would like more information about selling and/or buying ion today’s market, please call, email, or text anytime. I’d love to go over what your home value is, steps it takes to sell, what to do to get ready to sell, and what to expect when you sell ans/or buy. I’ve helped many people be successful and I can help you too!
