  • According to the RMLS Market Action Report for the Portland Metro Area, August, 2017:
    • There were 4,048 New Listings in August 2017 which was down 3.7% from August of 2016’s 4,203, and down the same 3.7% from July of 2017’s total of 4,202.
    • At 3,034, August Closed Sales were up 1.1% from August 2016’s 3,001, and up 8.6% from the previous month/July 2017’s total of  2,793.

Market Activity Report, August 14-20, 2017

Hey everybody!

Gosh wasn’t that total solar eclipse just completely unreal? My family and I traveled down to Corvallis to experience 100% totality, and I must say that it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever witnessed. It was almost like what you see in a movie, except for the movie screen was the entire sky! It was just so great and beautiful, what a time to be alive!

So we’ve seen lots of activity even as August starts to wind summer down. Lots of multi-mil houses moving around in Lake Oswego, all of which are just gorgeous.

Total Solar Eclipse

Some of you are reading this blog from right here in Lake Oswego. Others of you are reading from states and countries far away. Those of you who are local know what I am talking about, eclipse fever is burning hot and bright. Oh my goodness, so much build up to this event.

I was a college student attending Willamette University when the last total solar eclipse occurred in 1979 and totality went right over Salem, Oregon. I clearly remember the encroaching darkness, the totality, and the return to “normal” that was not normal that afternoon after having experienced an eclipse. I happened to be taking an astronomy class at the time and so had lots of wonderful insight. I didn’t have any proper eye protection to wear so I used a mirror to reflect the progression of the eclipse on the side of a building. I never did look directly at it.

This time I am ready. I bought my viewing glasses many months ago. I have gone to the NASA web sight to make sure that they are correctly certified and manufactured, and I am excited!

I will be in the path of totality with family and friends that I love.

I am a 10-year cancer survivor. I learned that life brings you moments and that you need to grab those moments and experience them with joy and gratitude.

I think the entire country is going to experience some of the eclipse, even if it is in a small measure. I hope for you that you grab the moment, enjoy it, and take in the wonder of what it is to be alive.

Market Activity Aug 7-13, 2017

We are having the most beautiful mid-August weather! Spectacular sunny days of 80 degrees, usually a light breeze, and lovely summer nights. Time to slow down and relish it as we all know that we are only a couple of weeks from feeling the nip of fall in the air.

Along with lazy summer days, we are still in the full swing of a very busy summer real estate market. Just as I thought the numbers would look like they are starting to slow down we had 27 new listings come onto the market last week. That is really good news as our inventory needs to stay strong to give buyers opportunity! We also had 19 properties go into pending status and 19 closed sales.
