October brought seasonal and expected cooling to the Portland-Metro real estate market. We are still currently in the midst of  a solid Seller’s market. The real estate market is still very robust and active despite the slowing of the market. We are currently sitting at 2 months of inventory on the market. That means it would take 2 months to sell all of the real estate on the market. This is expected to rise a bit in the coming months.

The average and median sales prices continue to rise in the Portland-Metro area. comparing 2016 to 2016 through October 2016, the average sales price rose 11.5% from $353,400 to $393,900. In the same comparison the median sales price rose a whopping 13.1%, from $305,000 to $345,000. These are big numbers people!

The average market time has increased by a modest 6 days. Making the average market time 41 days. The interest rates are still  very low and that counter acts the rising prices, making purchasing a home affordable and smart investment. In most cases the mortgage payment is less than rent would be.

If you have been sitting on the fence about selling, this is a good time to make that move! 2017 is estimated to be another good year in real estate , but just not as high appreciation. Slow, steady growth is what to expect. If you would like to talk about all of your options for selling your home, buying a new one or purchasing an investment property please don’t hesitate to call, email, or text.

Below is a testimonial from a fabulous client. I’m deeply honored to represent HER!

I am honored to give Rachel Sheller this letter of recommendation. Rachel has worked with myself and my family on various real estate transactions over the past 15 years. She most recently worked with my daughter and her husband to sell their home and with purchasing another home and assisted me in the purchase of a new home.

Rachel demonstrates integrity and extensive knowledge when working with clients. Her knowledge of the current market and her work ethic shortens the duration a property remains on the market saving both time and money. She is sensitive to the needs of her clients and works hard to achieve their goals. She continues to work even after the papers are signed to ensure your experience from beginning to end is a successful and pleasant experience. I will continue to choose to work with Rachel for my real estate needs and have referred her often to family and friends.

I am confident Rachel can successfully assist you, too!”

Thank you so much Colleen for letting me represent you! I really appreciate the opportunity to be of service. I love being your realtor and also your friend.
