September Residential Highlights


The Portland/Metro area saw some clouds roll in our real estate activity this September 2016.

Pending sales (2,857) fell 3.8% short of September of last year (2,971) and 14.1% short of the 3,325 offers accepted last month in August 2016. This is expected as the market tends to cool a bit right after the school season starts. The swing of the market does lend itself to a further cooling. It is still very strong seller’s market, but sellers are having to try a little harder for the sales, as we are seeing an increases of “fail sales.” You will begin to see this a little more with more frequent price reductions, if a home is a priced a little on the high side in the first place.  Buyers are still making offers in high numbers on homes that are very competitively priced. Consequently, the total market time increased by only one day, climbing to 35 days.

Average And Median Sales Prices; Prices continue to rise in the Portland metro area. Comparing 2016 to 2015 through September, the average sale price rose 11.4% from $352,500 to $392,600. In the same comparison, the median sale price rose 13.1% from $305,000 to $345,000. Even though the prices have rose (The September numbers were coming off the HOT summer selling season) we are currently in the middle of a slight adjustment. Prices cannot continually increase in price by 11 % every month. It wouldn’t be long before no one could afford a home. I think we will see more modest increase in sales price and the buyers becoming more picky.

Please call, email, or text me if you would like to talk about selling your home and/or buying in todays market. I would love the opportunity to talk with you.

Months of inventory; What it means 

A quick gauge of the health, and swing of the real estate market is done by looking at the months of inventory on the market. Six months of inventory is considered a healthy, balanced market.

0-5.5 months of inventory- Seller’s Market

6.5 months on up of inventory- Buyer’s Market 

The very latest numbers sit us at 2.0 months of inventory. We are in a Seller’s  Market. We have been in a sellers’ market for well over 3 full years. Our numbers are on the rise. I expect a higher number next month.

“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.

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.
