News & Notes ~ Jan 2020 Numbers

Here is your look at the most recent data for the entire Portland area (January 2020) and how Lake Oswego fits in to this picture just below.

No doubt about it, Inventory is still low. So, not as many houses on the market as we enter the new year, but word is the number of Buyers out there right now is up. Generally that means sale prices will continue to see healthy appreciation as Buyers compete for a smaller number of homes. We’ll just have to wait and see what this year holds!  That said, New Listings are up a whopping 116.9% from December to January, so we may see our “Leveling-out” trend continue as far as prices go if we also continue to see that Inventory rise. Areas in & around Gresham, Oregon City, Milwaukie/Clackamas, Beaverton & Hillsboro, are the strongest as far as Appreciation goes.
