News & Notes ~ March 2020 Numbers

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

Inventory remains low and so basically, we have a housing shortage going on right now. Mortgage Rates are at 3.3% as of this writing. For the most part, Portland Real Estate is holding steady with prices improving and New Listings and Closed Sales, for instance up right around 25% from last month along with  Areas in & around Gresham, Oregon City, Milwaukie/Clackamas, & Hillsboro, are still the strongest as far as Appreciation goes.
