News & Notes ~ Feb Numbers 2020

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

Inventory remains low and Buyers are out en force. Interest rates have taken a steep dive and that is fueling this busy season as well. We’ve got increases in every segment (New, Pending & Closed), with Pending & Closed Sales really jumping up from January, and everything up significantly from 2019. Sale Prices are up over Feb 2019, and down a little bit from January. Areas in & around Gresham, Oregon City, Milwaukie/Clackamas, & Hillsboro, are the strongest as far as Appreciation goes.

According to the RMLS Market Action Report for the Portland Metro Area, February 2020:

  • There were 2,759  New Listings in February 2020 which increased 12.9%  from February of 2019’s 2,444, and also increased slightly at 0.2% from the previous month/January’s 2,754.
