Jan 2024 – Stats for Portland Area + LO

Here is your breakdown from the previous month/January for Portland and surrounding areas including LO broken out at the bottom. ***Be sure to check out the Neighborhood Report which categorizes down into smaller pieces.

Overview/Fluctuations ~ January 2024 Market Data: 

The big stories are that the Portland Metro area saw a jump in overall inventory, and New Listings shot up over last month by 89.2%.  Neither of these things is unusual as we move past the dividing line into the New Year, and/but there is a general feeling that this is just the beginning of a new trend. We’ll have to see what the numbers are for Feb once they’re available.  We also see downward motion on the overall sale price numbers from December… That is not necessarily unusual either because the end of the year is a notorious time for people to want to negotiate aggressively for various reasons.

Lake Oswego sale price average can vary widely from month to month affected greatly by the sale of one or several high dollar or low dollar properties that tend to skew the real meaning of following that particular stat in LO.

Rates: “Rates have stabilized in the low to mid 6% range. I don’t anticipate major movement in the next few weeks”         Gary Boyer, Regional VP, Directors Mortgage
