Lake Oswego Real Estate RMLS Market Action Report December 2019

This is probably the most important report from RMLS™ as it summarizes the last month of the year 2019.  I will post individual stats later this week for schools neighborhoods, etc.  However, here is the December 2019 RMLS™ Market Action Report:

December Residential Highlights

New listings, at 1,270, increased 1.2% from December 2018 (1,255) and fell 40.0% from November 2019

Pending sales (1,772) increased 10.8% over the 1,599 offers accepted in December 2018, and fell 22.1%

Market time - days on the market to sell - has increased and the overall appreciation rate for the Portland metro area is 2.5% YTD.

Lake Oswego Real Estate Summary RMLS Market Action Report December 2019

Lake Oswego also has a low inventory level.  The number of active listings had been higher throughout this past year but we currently have 2 months of inventory - not a lot better than the entire Portland metro area and a sellers' real estate market is appearing everywhere still.  However, prices in the Lake Oswego market - YTD % change was -2.4%.  I will write a blog post specifically for Lake Oswego in the coming week.

I can say, though, that our January is showing up like a Spring real estate market.  It is crazy busy and the serious buyers are out there.  Don't wait to put your home on the market in the Spring when there is a lot more competition, list your home now!

My Wordpress blogs have been compromised.  I have had to make them private and they are no longer available for viewing.  Go to my bettyjung.com site and click on Betty's Blog - that is where you will find me from here out out.
