Key Market Indicators – December Recap 2020
Portland Metro Housing Update - Resale Only
The unique housing market in 2020 continues into 2021, with frenzy-level sales activity intensity for each new resale listing, fueled by low interest rates and a huge backlog of buyers. Now that the holiday season is complete, Portland will see a power surge of home buyers enter the market in 2021. The intensity of the local housing market is higher than it was a year ago, with more homes going under contract than new listings entering the market. We’re virtually sold out up to $1 million, with predominantly surge sales activity intensity in that price range.
