Lake Oswego Real Estate RMLS Market Action Report January 2018

Our most recent market action report was issued yesterday.

January 2018 RMLS™ Market Action Report

January Residential Highlights

The Portland metro area saw plenty of pending sales and new listings this January.

Pending Sales

Pending sales at 2,311, outpaced January 2017 (1,990) by 16.1% and December 2017 (1,757) by 31.5%. It was the strongest January for pending listings in the metro area since 2007, when 2,544 offers were accepted in January.

New Listingshttps://bettyjung.com

New listings, at 2,486, outpaced January 2017 (2,212) by 12.4% and December 2017 (1,617) by 53.7%. I am not surprised that there was an uptick of listings in December and January.

Weather plays a big part in our real estate activity here in our area.  December saw only a dash of snow Christmas eve, compared to none in January.

Closed Sales

Closed sales, at 1,628, cooled 11.9% from the 1,847 closings recorded last year in January 2017 and 30.7% from the 2,350 closings recorded last month in December 2017.

Inventory

Inventory rose a bit in January, ending at 2.2 months. During the same period, total market time increased by five days to end at 60 days. There were 3,518 active residential listings in the Portland metro area in January.

Average and Median Sale Priceshttps://bettyjung.com

Comparing the average price of homes sold in the twelve months ending January 31st of this year ($430,100) with the average price of homes in the twelve months ending January 2017 ($399,600) shows an increase of 7.6%. In the same comparison, the median has increased 8.6% from $350,000 to $380,000.

Lake Oswego Real Estate Inventory

Here in Lake Oswego, we have a 3 month supply of houses for sale, up from 2.9  months in December.

Prices continue to increase and we are still in a seller's market. Although interest increases have started, I won't know until next month how that impacted our February 2018 real estate activity.

I am seeing more and more houses come on the market for sale, while not as much activity in the pending or sold categories.  But we are heading into prime selling season, and I know many sellers are getting their homes ready for sale, and with interest rates increasing, buyers are also ready to act.https://bettyjung.com
