Market Statistics for October 2009 in Portland Oregon

Posted by Gerry Mains - Managing Broker on Monday, November 23rd, 2009 at 11:11am.

Comparing this month, October 2009, to last year in October, pending sales were up 64% and closed sales rose 37.1%. The inventory is also declining, with new listings down "4.5%".

Part of what is keeping sales on track is that prices have continued to decline, "The average sale price for October 2009 was down 12.6% compared to October 2008, while the median sale price declined 10.9%."

Inventory is down to an fairly balanced level of 13,101 listings which would take 6.5 months to sell at the current pace. 6 month is considered a balanced market.
