News & Notes ~ June 2020 Numbers

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

Inventory has dropped in June.  They all got snatched up in May!  ; )  Seriously, look at the 38% rise in June Closed sales over May. We are seeing a housing shortage in the overall Portland area and it is reflected in Buyers experiencing lots of multiple-offer situations and overall competition over properties that are in good shape and priced well. Sellers are noticing this trend and continuing to list properties for sale. I’m anticipating an extended busy period this summer after some pent-up COVID-inspired “waiting” from earlier in the spring that is spilling into the post-4th of July time period which is usually a bit slower.

My trusted Mortgage Advisors tell me: Rates are at historic lows hovering around 3% and lower in some circumstances.

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