News & Notes - July 2020 Numbers

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

The Inventory says it all. Well, not maybe all… Just look at the increases over both last month and last year. Pending Sales are up 21.9% over last year/July, and Closed Sales are up 15% over July 2019 as well. Activity was put off in the Spring and is pushing into Summer.

It is currently understood to be a Seller’s Market. There are a large number of multiple-offer transactions for properties that are priced well. That will change as we head into Fall, where Buyers typically have more leverage. It is often a toss-up as to when you make your move as a Seller or a Buyer. Obviously, its good to be a Seller right now, and/but we don’t know where rates are headed, so I wouldn’t wait if I were a Buyer.  At the moment, my trusted Mortgage Advisors tell me: Rates are inching up now, hovering around 3.125%.

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

  • There were 4,236  New Listings in July 2020 which increased 6.8%  from July of 2019’s 3,966, and increased 15.8% over the previous month/June’s 3,658.

    •  193 Closed Sales       (June 135)

      • 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.
