Predictions for the second half of 2012 in Portland Real Estate

by | Aug 13, 2012 | How to Guides, Market Reports

Summer is typically the peak of the market and this year is no exception. But what happens when we head into Fall and Winter?? Here to share his predictions on the second half of the year is real estate expert Nick Krautter from Keller Williams real estate and sellpdx.com

Q. What do you think the big trend will be for Fall and Winter?

A. I think we will start to see fewer new listings like most years but I predict a robust Fall and Winter. Interest rates and high rents are motivating investors and buyer to make moves this year.

Q. Do you think the inventory will go up?

A. I expect to see a bit more inventory but right now we’re selling almost as many homes per month as are coming to the market. About 1200 new homes were listed last month and 800 homes sold.

Q. What’s the wild card that could change the market?

A. If pricing keeps going up it will allow more people to sell that are now underwater – that could create more inventory but I don’t see it lowering prices.
