News & Notes ~ March 2021 Numbers

Here is your wider Portland Market Report according to RMLS data, with overall Neighborhood changes and Lake Oswego data broken out below.

Overview/Fluctuations ~  Market Data March 2021:                                              

Low Inventory continues to be the driver of competition in the greater Portland area where we see price increases in most neighborhoods/areas from the prior month & all areas increasing over 2020. (See below for breakdown). Comparing 2021 to the same period in 2020 thru March, Overall Average Price has increased 16.6% and Median Price 14.9%.

My trusted Mortgage Advisors say Mortgage rates are hovering around 3.125%. This rate varies and can be reduced with a buy-down, or affected by individual qualifiers. I’m happy to connect you with someone to discuss your particular situation.         

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

  • There were 3,465 New Listings in March 2021 decreased only slightly at 0.1% from March 2020’s 3,468 and increased 40.1% from the previous month/February’s 2,474.
  • At 2,556, March 2021’s Closed Sales are up 8.5% from March 2020’s 2,356, and also up 29.2% from the previous month/February’s total of 1,978
  • At 3,346, March 2021’s Pending Sales increased 42.6% from March 2020’s 2,347, and also jumped up by 51.5% from the previous month/February’s total of 2,208.
  • The Average Sale Price in March 2021 of $554,300 is up $88,800 from last year/March2020’s $465,500, and up $12,300. from the previous month/February’s $542,000.   
  • The “Median” Sale Price (the price smack dab in the middle of all sales) in March 2021 of $488,000 rose $63,000 from last year/March 2020’s $425,000, and also increased $8,900 from the previous month/February’s $479,100.

LAKE OSWEGO

The combined areas of Lake Oswego and West Linn for the month of March 2021 reported:

  • 112 Active Listings (Feb 82)
  • 188 New Listings    (Feb 97)
  • 156 Pending Sales (Feb 92)
  • 112 Closed Sales    (Feb 92)
  • Average Sale Price for Mar: $944,100  (Feb $876,900)
    • 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.
  •  77 Average Days on the Market   (Feb 77)

News & Notes ~ Feb 2021 Numbers

Here is your wider Portland Market Report according to RMLS data, with overall Neighborhood changes and Lake Oswego data broken out below.

Overview/Fluctuations ~  Market Data February 2021:           Inventory is holding steady with one month of supply available.  Competition is heavy, though we finally see more properties hitting the market now in March, which should alleviate that a little.  Competition pushes prices up as you can see in the Neighborhood Report below comparing January & February prices. Rolling 12-month Appreciation rates in all areas are up.

Mortgage rates will be rising inspired by the economy’s steady recovery. Today’s rates are hovering around 3% or a little higher based on a number of factors, but most can “buy the rate down” a bit & get it lowered. My trusted Mortgage Advisors can give you  more info.      

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

  • There were 2,474 New Listings in Feb 2021 decreased  10.3% from Feb of 2020’s 2,759  and also dropped 4.1% from the previous month/January’s 2,579.
  • At 1,978, Feb 2021’s Closed Sales are up 4.3% from Feb 2020’s 1,897, and also up 7.1% from the previous month/January’s total of 1,847
  • At 2,208, Feb 2021’s Pending Sales are down 15% from Feb 2020’s 2,598, and also down 11.5% from the previous month/January’s total of 2,496.

  • The “Median” Sale Price (the price smack dab in the middle of all sales) in Feb 2021 of $470,100 rose $63,100 from last year/Feb 2020’s $407,000, and also increased 10,100 from the previous month/January’s $460,000.

Market Activity ~ Feb 22-28, 2021

Last week we saw only 5 properties enter the market, 13 moved to Pending status and 20 Sold/Closed. There are 66 fabulous properties available right now in Lake Oswego! The market is very tight. This is the time of year we start to see properties hit the market so time will tell if we’ve got a wave of properties coming up, but for now, rates are low & inching higher… its a good time to call a skilled Realtor to help you secure a home. Dianne and I are always a phone, text or email away.

Here is the latest overview of activity in Lake Oswego according to RMLS:

News & Notes ~ Jan 2021 Numbers

Overview/Fluctuations ~  Portland Area Market Data Jan 2021: 

The big story in January is that our Inventory increased from .8 to 1.0 months of supply. If you  think that’s not much, you’re right! We continue to be at record lows in available homes. Last year in January we had 2.2 months of Inventory, which was low. The previous year (Jan 2019) we had 3.3 months of Inventory. So, the field is still competitive out there which means it is a terrific time to sell a home and if you’re buying, rates are still low hovering around 3.125, so better not to wait!

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

  • There were 2,579 New Listings in Jan 2021 decreased  6.4% from Jan of 2020’s 2,754, and increased 48.2% from the previous month/Dec’s 1,740.
