Home prices still on the rise in Portland but slowing down

by | Nov 28, 2018 | Market Reports

Home prices have been on the rise in Portland since early 2012. From 2012 to 2018 prices have come close to doubling and that is a pace that is not sustainable. The median home price in Portland is now $392,500 according to RMLS.

The latest Case/Shiller report shows Portland and the rest of the US starting to cool off a bit. Currently prices are up 5.1% which is still above the long term average of 3% appreciation per year. This slow down coincides with interest rates rising to just under 5% which, along with rising prices, is keeping some buyers on the sidelines.

Another new factor that has some buyers waiting is the Portland rental market which is seeing lower rents and higher vacancy.
