2017 Economic Forecast

wooden-block-house-on-money I just went to an economic forecast summit in Portland. There are many forecasts on the Horizon. The Pacific NW, especially our Portland/Metro, is expected to stay hot in 2017 (See below for Stats). Before I get to them, I will just tell you right away…the real estate market looks solid, and strong through the second quarter of 2018 .That is really good news! Another  point I’d like to share that was brought up was that we are not in a bubble, nor are we even close to another bubble. That means we have a clear road ahead of us for the next 1 1/2 years.

A few of the projections are:

  1. Interest rate expected to be raised 2 times in 2017.
  2. Job growth is expected at at least 3.5% in 2017.
  3. Unemployemnt is hovering at 4.6% and hopefully will reduce further.
  4. Appreciation is expected to be a solid and sustainable 3.5%-5%. This will probably be a little higher this year in Portland/Metro in many neighborhoods-Call me for info on yours.
  5. The median age of first time homebuyer in 2017 is 32 years. The average age of repeat homebuyers (home seller)  is 36years-52 years of ages in 2017.
  6. Another unique and interesting forecast was that there is expected to be 1/2 less cars on the road by 2030. This is expected to decrease due to the insurgance of “self driving” cars and urban dense living.

Thanks to WFG and Pat Stone (President and CEO Williston Financial Group) for the wonderful class and information on our coming year. It looks pretty darn sunny!! Call me and lets get you moving!! Its the perfect year for you to make the move you have been waiting on.

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-OCTOBER 2016

10/29/16

I knew I’d be selling my beautiful, but sad home soon after my divorce was

finalized. I also knew that Rachael would be the the one I could trust. Our sons

played baseball together several years back and during that time I witnessed her

genuine caring heart on many occasions. My decision was justified when she

came by to do a walk thru, suggesting things to do to prepare the house for listing,

her words “you can do this, I got you”. Not only did she pay attention to detail

regarding my home, but on the day she came to take photos she was wearing a

elephant pendant, I love elephants and she said she wore it for me…it’s the little

things.

My house was being sold as-is and the offer we accepted was FHA in the beginning

so the process took more time. This was ok, I was not in a hurry and definitely

needed the time. She addressed any question or concern I had with her expertise

and if I wasn’t sure about a decision I needed to make, I knew she had my back and

could count on her advice. Rachael understood my situation and treated me with

kindness and respect. From start to finish she kept me informed and updated

throughout the entire process, making a task I dreaded smooth and effortless on

my part.

I highly recommend Rachael to anyone needing real estate services. Rachael has

more than exceptional skills at selling a home, she has a genuine heart and a love

for people. She will work magic…she did for me! Thank you Rachael!
