Distress Free Portland Oregon? Almost…

by | Feb 5, 2019 | Market Reports

3,710 properties are currently available or in contract in Portland Oregon today. With much talk lately of a slow down in real estate after a very slow December it might lead you to believe that the cracks are starting to show in the real estate market.

I took a look at how many bank owned (REO) and short sale properties there currently are in the Portland, Oregon either on the market or in contract and the number will surprise you.

Currently there are 50 bank owned properties are available or pending, and that’s only 0.13% of the current real estate market

Currently there are 34 short sale properties are available or pending, and that’s only 0.09%

To give this context, at the bottom of the Portland real estate market from June through December 2011, Bank owned properties accounted for 877 of the 5,561 sales, or 16% of all sales in that period.

These very low distressed property numbers point to a positive 2019 in the Portland, Oregon real estate market.
