News & Notes ~ Feb Data ~ 2017

The latest numbers for the entire Portland area for February 2017 are in!

I usually give our Property Blotter Readers a glimpse at the whole Portland market and how Lake Oswego fits into it below. Here you go!

According to the RMLS Market Action Report for the Portland Metro Area:

  • There were 2,521 New Listings in February 2017 which was down 12.9% from February of 2016’s 2,896, but UP 14% from January of 2017’s total of 2,212.
  • At 1,669, February Closed Sales were down 7.9% from February 2016’s 1,813, and also down 9.6% over the previous month/January 2017’s total of  1,847. (So, more sales Closed in January for people who were Pending during the year-end push.)
  • February Pending Sales (accepted offers), at 2,369, fell 15% from February of 2016, but were UP 19% from the previous month/January 2017’s total of 1,990.
  •  The Average Sale Price in February of $404,200 was up $39,300 from February 2016’s $364,900, and down a bit from January 2017’s $409,900.

The combined areas of Lake Oswego and West Linn  for the month of February 2017 reported:

    •  252 Active Listings   
    •  148 New Listings     
    •  124 Pending Sales   
    •  79 Closed Sales  
    • Average Sale Price for February: $661,500  
      • NOTE: Higher-Priced vs Lower-Priced Homes Sales can skew the “Average” in any given month.  Lake Oswego has quite a variety, so this tends to be a less meaningful stat, generally speaking, in this niche.
    • Average Time on the Market: 87 Days
