News & Notes ~ Nov 2020 Numbers

Here is your look at the most recent data for the entire Portland area (Nov2020) and how Lake Oswego fits in to this picture just below.

Overview/Fluctuations ~  Market Data Nov 2020:                                  

Inventory is now at 1.0 months of supply here, locally. The lowest it’s ever been. All forecasts are for continued increases in home sales and prices, though more modestly than 2020. Prediction #’s vary among economists. National Association of Realtors (NAR) is predicting a 7.3% increase in sales  nationally in 2021. Interest rates are still hovering around 2.875% but are expected to rise, albeit not dramatically. One very interesting item I noted from the NAR information is that nationally,  1 in 6 home purchases is now “multi-generational”. So, how we live is changing in many ways:  People are looking for more space to work from home, and generations are moving in together. There is generally more up-sizing than down-sizing going on.
