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.
  • At 3,391, July 2020’s Closed Sales are up at 15.2% from July 2019’s 2,944, and also up by 25.2% from the previous month/June 2020’s total of 2,709
  • At 3,656, July 2020’s Pending Sales are up 21.9% from July 2019’s 2,998, and increased 0.1% (virtually the same) from the previous month/June 2020’s total of 3,654.
  • The Average Sale Price in July 2020 of $502,300 is up $36,300 from last year/July 2019’s $466,000, and is also up $22,600 from the previous month/June 2020’s $479,700.   YTD increase is 3.7%.
  • The “Median” Sale Price (the price smack dab in the middle of all sales) in July 2020 of $445,000 rose from last year/July 2019’s $411,600 by $33,400, and is up by $10,000 from the previous month/June 2020’s $435,000.   YTD increase is 4.5%.

LAKE OSWEGO:

The combined areas of Lake Oswego and West Linn  for  the month of July 2020 reported:

    •  311 Active Listings (June 315)
    •  242 New Listings     (June 216)

    • Average Sale Price for July: $830,600  (June $721,800)
      • 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.
    •  62 Average Days on the Market   (June 54)

DETACHD refers to Single Family Detached Residence, MFG refers to manufactured housing, and ATTACHD refers to single-family residences with some portion of the structure attached to another property, but not constituting CONDO ownership.

Featured Neighborhood: Westlake

Westlake is probably the most classic “American” neighborhood in Lake Oswego. Developed in the 1980’s it is winding, quiet streets of lovely homes that just beg you to take your dog for a walk, or your kids to get on their bikes and spend the day outside. It is truly a wonderful neighborhood.

It’s also unbelievably convenient. Located at the very Western edge of Lake Oswego, it is bounded by I-5 on the West, Melrose St on the North, Fosberg Rd on the East, and Kruse Way on the South. It is literally at the junction of I-5 and Hwy 217. I remember when it was being developed there was a big sign that said “If you lived here, you’d be home right now”. This is because as you leave the freeway, it’s right there. If you live in First Addition, you’ve got another 10 minutes of driving to get home. If you live in Palisades, you’ve also got another 10 minutes of driving to get home. It’s just super convenient.

Westlake has 2 parks, Westlake Park and Southwood Park. Southwood Park is more of a nature area with green lawns and walking paths. Westlake Park is more of a recreation area with a huge playground and an athletic field for baseball and soccer. It is also the sight of the August portion of the Lake Oswego Summer concert series. In a non-covid 19 world, there is a free outdoor concert every Wednesday evening in the month of August.

Westlake Elementary School is also adjacent to this neighborhood, which makes it close enough for kids to walk or ride their bikes to school.

Do you see what I”m saying about a classic “American” neighborhood. It’s like something straight out of a movie. The American dream. A family home and everyone enjoying recreation and friendships.

The housing in Westlake is primarily single family residential. There are some apartments, but no condos. There is also a very small commercial area with a dozen businesses and a pizza restaurant.

There are currently 8 houses for sale in Westlake. The least expensive is 1861 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, built in 1986, the interior is mostly original and would benefit from updating. It’s priced at $549,900. The most expensive is 2976 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, built in 1985, it is beautifully updated and priced at $995,000.

Homes in Westlake sell fast. Because of everything I have shared here, it is a wildly popular place to live and buyers are watching and waiting. When the right house comes onto the market, they jump on it. This makes it not only a great place to live, but owning a home there is also a great investment.

The photos shared here are of homes that I have recently sold in Westlake. I know the neighborhood and would love to help you realize your dream of living in a classic “American” neighborhood.

As always, thanks for reading the blotter.

Inspections- The Basics

I always have a conversation with my clients before we begin their home-buying or -selling adventure regarding the basic markers, or hurdles we will clear as we move through the process. One of the most crucial is the Inspection Period.

After mutual acceptance, Buyer and Seller enter the Inspection Period. The Residential Sale Agreement specifies 10 business days unless the Buyer’s Agent shortens or lengthens that when writing, but 10 days is pretty typical. During this time Buyers may hire professionals to perform inspections on the home and will specify any “invasive inspections” which can include sewer scopes, mold, underground tank locates, and believe it or not, the collection of radon gasses to gauge safety of the air in the home.

I find this is one of the most misunderstood portions of the process, and/but it is pretty straightforward. I’m including an excerpt from the Residential Sale Agreement language below as, with most things, an actual reading of the language in the contract clears things up pretty quickly when clarity is needed.

Your time clock starts ticking on the first day following mutual acceptance.  Sometimes when submitting an Offer as a Buyer, you might want to take into consideration that if your Offer is accepted on a weekend, your first business day will be a Monday, which will give you one weekend as part of your timeline.  If your Offer is accepted on a Monday or a Tuesday, your timeline will include two weekends, which can be beneficial if you need time to get additional contractors out to look at various things that come up in the inspection, such as roof issues, electrical issues, foundation issues and the like. The timeline is very important to both the Seller and the Buyer as, in the state of Oregon, a Seller is selling a home “as-is”. This means that though there is a provision in the contract for inspection (and the contingency that a Buyer may decide to withdraw during the timeline based on dissatisfaction with the inspection(s), the Seller is not “obligated” to perform any repairs for the Buyer. Because of this, if a Buyer lets their allotted time lapse and you pass that 5PM deadline on the 10th business day without any written agreement on repairs, the home is then construed to be sold “as is”.  Most Sellers and Buyers are reasonable during the allotted period and when issues of safety or impacted functionality of the home arise, accommodations of some sort are usually reached- not always to the extent a Buyer (or Seller) might like, but my experience is that there is usually goodwill and a real effort to deliver a home in good working order to the Buyer. Considerations that also come into play are Lender requirements, potential Appraiser concerns and the desire of both parties to Close the transaction and move on.

Here is the excerpt from the Sale Agreement that explains the basics:

177 LICENSED PROFESSIONAL INSPECTIONS: At Buyer’s expense, Buyer may have the Property and all elements and systems thereof
178 inspected by one or more licensed professionals of Buyer’s choice. Provided, however, Buyer must specifically identify in this Agreement any
179 desired invasive inspections that may include testing or removal of any portion of the Property including, for example, radon and mold. Identify
180 Invasive Inspections: .
181 Buyer understands Buyer is responsible for the restoration of the Property following any inspection(s)/test(s) performed by Buyer or on Buyer’s
182 behalf. Buyer shall have business days (ten [10] if not filled in), after the date Buyer and Seller have signed and accepted this Agreement
183 (hereinafter “the Inspection Period”), in which to complete all inspections and negotiations with Seller regarding any matters disclosed in any
184 inspection report. Buyer shall not provide all or any portion of the inspection reports to Seller unless requested by Seller. However, at any time
185 during this transaction, or promptly following termination, upon request by Seller, Buyer shall promptly provide a copy of such reports or portions of
186 reports, as requested. During the Inspection Period, Seller shall not be required to modify any terms of this Agreement already reached with Buyer.
187 Unless a written agreement has already been reached with Seller regarding Buyer’s requested repairs, at any time during the Inspection Period,
188 Buyer may notify Seller, in writing, of Buyer’s unconditional disapproval of the Property based on any inspection report(s), in which case, all earnest
189 money deposits shall be promptly refunded, and this transaction shall be terminated. If Buyer fails to provide Seller with written unconditional
190 disapproval of any inspection report(s) by 5:00 P.M. of the final day of the Inspection Period, Buyer shall be deemed to have accepted the
191 condition of the Property. Note if, prior to expiration of the Inspection Period, written agreement is reached with Seller regarding Buyer’s
192 requested repairs, the Inspection Period shall automatically terminate, unless the parties agree otherwise in writing.

The Magic that is Escrow

I want to take a moment to explain not only what escrow is, but also to give a shout out to the amazing title companies that we have in the Portland area.

Escrow is the time that happens between an offer being accepted and the title being recorded for the new owner of the property. The Realtors involved submit a copy of the agreed upon paperwork to the title company that has been chosen. The buyer or the seller can select the title company, if they have a preference. By practice though, I’d say 90% of the time the seller’s agent will choose the title company. This is because prior to and during the course of the listing being marketed, it’s pretty common for the listing side Realtor to ask for information and favors from a title company. This can be things like obtaining a plat map, getting a copy of the deed, all sorts of favors. The title company will do these services at no charge. They do them, because they are hoping to be selected to handle a transaction. Just like Realtors, they don’t get paid until the transaction closes.

Upon receiving the new sale agreement, the “escrow officer”, which is what the person at the title company is usually called, will order a preliminary title report. It takes about a week to receive it and it is sent out to all parties involved: the buyer and their Realtor, the seller and their Realtor, and the lender if there is a lender involved. The title report shows what legal liens and encumbrances, such as easements, Home Owner Association documents, and mortgages are attached to the property. Once received, the buyer needs to review the prelim and they have 2 days to notify the seller if there is an issue that needs to be cleared up. The seller then has 5 days to fix the issue. If the seller can’t fix it, then the buyer can terminate and get their earnest money back. The sort of issue that might create this situation would be something like a judgement for alimony that must be proven to be current. That sort of thing.

Escrow lasts 30 to 45 days, typically. During this time the escrow officer will collect the needed information to close on the sale. They are the people who receive the lenders wire of funds from the new mortgage, and who contact the buyer to let them know how much money to bring to closing. They make appointments with the buyer and the seller and are in charge of everyone signing all of the documents correctly. They use the money that they have received to pay off any current liens and then they are the ones who take the new deed to the county and have it recorded, along with the new mortgage. Today this is done electronically.

On the day of closing they do the final title report to confirm that no knew encumbrances have been recorded on the property. With this in hand they issue a title insurance policy. This insurances benefits the buyer and is the title companies evidence that all of the seller encumbrances have been removed and the buyer is receiving the property with clear title and only the encumbrances that they place upon it, such as their new mortgage.

To a person, every single escrow officer I have ever met or worked with has been the utmost professional, competent and friendly person. In addition, the title companies perform these services for a very reasonable charge. Combining title and escrow charges, the average transaction earns the title company, perhaps, $3500. The charge for the title insurance is regulated by the state of Oregon. Escrow charges are pretty uniform between companies. The charges are split approximately 60/40, with the seller paying the larger amount because seller paid title insurance to benefit the buyer is more expensive than buyer paid title insurance to benefit the buyer’s lender.

If you ask any Realtor who their favorite title company is, every single one of them will have an immediate answer. For me, it’s Roni Winters at Fidelity National Title in Lake Oswego. But I would trust any of the companies and escrow officers in the metro area. They are all that good.

Stay cool in this heat, and as always, thank you for reading the blotter.

Market Activity July 13-19, 2020

The Lake Oswego real estate market is on fire! It feels like we are having our spring market in July. I’m sure it’s because in the spring the pandemic had just hit us and we all felt a sense of decision paralysis. But as time has gone by, and we’ve all adapted to the new normal, our confidence has come back. The Lake Oswego market truly is booming. Last week we had 26 properties come onto the market, 28 go into pending status, and 20 sold/closed purhases.

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:
