News & Notes ~ May 2020 Numbers

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

Inventory is down but only slightly from April. Overall we’re seeing an adjustment down in numbers overall as they relate to last year in May, and/but look at the numbers and how they’ve all risen from April, Closed Sales being down a slight 2.6% (fewer Offers made in March). You may remember my prediction that COVID and some freezing/panic in March were affecting April numbers. Now, as I suspected, we see what we’re all seeing anecdotally in the marketplace, which is people adapting to safety protocols and getting out there to buy and sell houses suiting their individual circumstances. So, down over May 2019, and up over April 2020. Look at the 52.5% rise in Pending sales over April!

My trusted Mortgage Advisors tell me:

      • 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.
