Lake Oswego Market Activity – March 30th – April 5th, 2009

blogtreeOk, things are starting to get interesting- Lake Oswego saw 29 new properties hit the market last week (these are properties that are brand new on the market -or- have been off the market for a minimum of 30 days). All told, there were 45 that are either truly new, or have been “freshened” showing as new listings. (Dianne and I will have plenty to see on tour tomorrow!) We had 7 go pending, and 6 that closed, so sales remain steady for now at this rate.

The headlines read: “Mortgage Rates Drop to Record Lows”. According to Bankrate.com, the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage has dropped 6 basis points to 5.13%. The benchmark 15-year, fixed-rate mortgage fell 7 basis points to 4.73%. Mortgage rate applications are up, and many are taking advantage of the 2009 $8,000. tax credit for first time buyers. (Click here for more info from the NAR.)

We can expect to see these factors start to significantly affect market activity. The rise in the number of new listings appears to indicate renewed confidence along with seasonal upswing, and consistent sales activity likely indicates pent-up demand starting to surface, as you’d expect with the incentives of low rates and plentiful options.

Here is the latest market activity for Lake Oswego (see below the tables for additional notes):
