Latest & Greatest Portland-Metro Real Estate Stats- November 2019

How’s The Market?

Below is an excerpt from the Regional Multiple Listing Service’s most recent “Market Action” report that comes out monthly and is e-mailed to all member Realtors. This is data specific to the Portland Metro Area market.

October Residential Highlights

Oregon City/Canby is leading the pack right now at 4.9% appreciation! Winds of change are a blowin’. It still is a really good time to make a move if you’ve been kicking it around. Most people don’t know the Winter months are great times to move. Less completion if your a seller, and if your a buyer there typically have been many houses that have been sitting on the market ready for negotiation. Here are some stats;

Pending and closed sales saw gains this month in the Portland metro area, compared with October 2018. Pending sales (2,575) rose 3.7% over the 2,484 offers accepted in October 2018, falling 4.1% short of the 2,686 offers accepted last month in September 2019.

Closed sales (2,588) rose 6.1% from the 2,440 closings recorded last year in October 2018 and increased 8.9% compared with the 2,377 closings recorded last month in September 2019.

New listings, at 3,064, decreased 1.2% from October 2018 (3,100) and 11.7% from September 2019 (3,470).

Inventory decreased slightly to 2.4 months this October, while total market time rose by two days to land at 54 days.

Average and Median Sale Prices

Comparing 2019 to 2018 through October, the average sale price has increased 1.2% from $453,600 to $459,000. In the same comparison, the median sale price has increased 2.5% from $400,000 to $410,000.

Client Review For Rachel Sheller

“Rachel went above and beyond with the sale of our home. She came over multiple times before our house went on the market, helping us stage and prep our home to sell quickly and what we wanted it to sell for. Her knowledge of the area, buys and sellers, and the market were a tremendous help to us! Rachel made us feel valued and important being responsive to any of our needs prior to going on the market, during the process and with closing on our house. She was always an advocate for us when negotiating with the buyers and gave us her honest advice throughout the whole process. We were so fortunate to have Rachel represent us and help us sell our first home!”

LATEST MARKET REPORT NUMBERS & STATS 11-11-2016!

11-2016-market-action

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.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL- THANK YOU SCOTT & MEG!

Thank you Scott & Meg for this absolutely wonderful testimonial. You are such wonderful people. I’m honored to be your realtor…..For life!

“As first time buyers, our experience with Rachel was amazing. She really took care of us from beginning to end, and her attentiveness and thoroughness helped us feel secure throughout the process. She’s a rockstar advocate to have on your side of the table. Her tenaciousness secured our house for us over five competing offers and her career’s worth of connections and willingness to make all the arrangements helped the inspection process move quickly and smoothly. We are so glad that we were referred to Rachel, and will be forever thankful for everything she did to help us get into our first home. –Megan & Scott Cutler”
