News & Notes ~ Dec 2021 + Year-End Comparison

Every year I like to add in a comparison at the end of the year to the year prior being as the December report offers a unique opportunity to look at just that. So, below you’ll find our usual monthly overview & Neighborhood Report along with a comparison; 2021 to 2020.

As always, Lake Oswego info for Dec 2021 is broken out below as well.

Overview/Fluctuations ~  Market Data Dec 2021 (+2020):    

Inventory is now at a stunning 0.6 months of supply in the Portland area for December. Our supply has simply never been this low… a little more than 2 weeks of Inventory available. Rates as of this writing are hovering around 3.5%, and the Fed is signaling that rates will be rising.                                      

The twelve months of 2021 compared to 2020:

New Listings, (40,531) increased 5.4%.Pending Sales (35,405) increased 7.8%, and –Closed Sales (35,182) increased 9.8%.   ***By Comparison, Twelve months of 2020 (to compare to 2021 above) from last year’s December report read: -New Listings, (38,442) decreased 5.2%, -Pending Sales (32,849) increased 7.9%, and -Closed Sales (32,031) increased 7.8%.

LAKE OSWEGO:

63 Active Listings (Nov 92)
71 New Listings  (Nov 99)
82 Pending Sales (Nov 124)
134 Closed Sales  (Nov 127)
Average Sale Price for Nov: $1,024,400 (Nov $964,300)
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.
29 Days on the Market   (Nov 36)

Market Activity ~ Jan 3-9, 2022

This first full week in the New Year we had only ONE property go on the market in Lake Oswego, and that one is a major fixer/possible rebuild over by George Rogers Park (per the Listing). In my Master’s Group, Realtors are begging each other to list the properties they have in their pockets. My guess is that Sellers are seeing the news of Omicron likely hitting peak soon to then taper off… and so are holding on a bit longer. IMHO there may be a flood of new properties hitting the market in the near future, and anyone in their right mind ought to list their property *now*. All in all, if you’re Buying… hold ‘yer horses! Things will change soon.

There were 11 properties that moved to Pending status and 16 that Closed/Sold last week as well. Right now there are 38 homes available in Lake Oswego.

Here is the data according to RMLS:

News & Notes ~ November Numbers 2021

Here is your look at what’s been happening in the overall Portland area including individual areas of the metro, and with Lake Oswego broken out below:

Overview/Fluctuations ~  Market Data Nov 2021:   

What I call the Black Hole of the Holidays is upon us! Meaning- while it is an amazing time to buy a home, there is also shrinking inventory even from the low levels we already had. So… great time to buy- just fewer homes available from which to choose. All that said, when you look at previous years, you can see inventory always takes a dip this time of year as both Buyers and Sellers become distracted with all the trappings of the season. So…nothing out of the ordinary, except for how low supply has fallen. Right now if you’re selling, you can be sure that the Buyers who are looking at your home are savvy, serious, and probably a bit sappy : ) That means…get the cookies in the oven and play those old timey holiday tunes in the background!

Rates: “Rates are being pushed up a bit with continued inflation concerns. Right now they are at about 3.375%.”   Gary Boyer, Regional VP, Directors Mortgage                                                                                                                            

According to the RMLS Market Action Report  for the Portland Metro Area, Nov 2021:

  • There were 2,229 New Listings in Nov 2021, down slightly at 0.4% from Nov 2020’s 2,238 and also down a whopping 31.0% from the previous month/Oct’s 3,232 (normal, seasonal stuff).
  • At 2,832, Nov 2021’s Closed Sales are up 3.2% from Nov 2020’s 2,745, and dropped 9.5% from the previous month/Oct’s total of 3,129
  • At 2,660, Oct 2021’s Pending Sales increased 4.0% from Nov 2020’s 2,557, and decreased 16.5% from the previous month/Oct’s total of 3,187.
  • The Average Sale Price in Nov 2021 of $575,600 is up $54,400 from last year/Nov 2020’s $521,200, and nearly the same as the previous month/Oct’s $575,200.

Tinseltown Trolley

The Lake Oswego Trolley is a favorite of mine. The trolley runs from State Street, along the Willamette River to the South waterfront in Portland. It’s a blast! One year, I packed a picnic and took my Mom for a trolley ride for her birthday.

The scenery is lovely. It meanders along through Dunthorpe ( a gorgeous neighborhood!) and has expansive views of the river. There is also a long tunnel that is pitch dark inside, except for the lights of the trolley.

This year the trolley is offering a Tinseltown experience. The event is December 10, 11, and 12. Departure times vary with 3 rides on Friday the 10th, 6 on Saturday the 11th. and 6 on Sunday the 12th. The cost is $20 for adults and $17 for youth (0-17). The trolley is decorated for the season and there is a special guest on board from the North Pole. For more details, click here.

What a fun holiday event for everyone!

Seasons greetings, and, as always, thanks for reading the blotter.

Worshipping options in and near Lake Oswego

I once worked with a family who was being transferred from another part of the country. One of the first questions that I was asked was, does it matter what church you belong to? It was the one and only time that I’ve ever gotten that question. And it’s a fair question.

My answer was then, and still is today, no. There is no social pressure to be affliated with an organized faith group. However, there are quite a few worship options should you be inclined to want to join one.

Lake Oswego has 25 christian churches, including a Mormon Temple. There is also a Jewish Synagogue. 2 miles South of Lake Oswego is the Cambodian Buddhist Society. Within 5 miles of Lake Oswego there is a Hindu Temple and 3 more Jewish Synagogues.

I hope you find this information helpful, and, as always, thank you for reading the blotter.

Market Activity Nov 8-15, 2021

The market is moving right along. I feel like the 12 new listings, 19 pending sales, and 16 closed sales is actually pretty active for the holiday season. People buying or selling this week are hoping to be moved before Christmas. Timing is pretty motivating.
