Lake Oswego Real Estate Price Appreciation Portland Metro Areas First Quarter 2018 Year To Date
In January, I posted the price appreciation for the different Portland metro real estate markets. You can view that post here to compare with the following update.
Here are the latest price appreciation stats from the RMLS™ March Market Action Report for the First Quarter 2018.
Price Appreciation Portland Metro Areas First Quarter 2018 Year To Date
Lake Oswego/West Linn Price Appreciation
As many, including myself, have been reporting, our local real estate market has slowed down a bit from the last two years. However, as soon as we turned the page on the calendar to March 2018, the real estate market developed into a frenzy yet again.
Lake Oswego did experience a slower increase in prices compared to last year from 9.4% to 6.1% this first quarter. However, it should be noted prices are still increasing and will, in my opinion, continue to increase as long as our inventory of houses remains so low. Some areas are still seeing higher demand than others and; yet again, not all areas are seeing multiple offers.
I too have been super busy as we enter into the Spring real estate season. Weather has been beautiful and I know buyers are out wanting to purchase, in spite of increases recently in interest rates. We need more houses to sell. The low inventory is making it more difficult to find a home and some buyers are being priced out of the market.
There were a couple clients of mine who I told last year that they should buy as prices would be increasing. They did not purchase, and you can see from the above stats, prices did and are still increasing. Both those buyers thought prices would this year and now are regretting not buying when I suggested they do so. They are still in the market to purchase but their searches have now shifted into different areas and different price ranges.
