Summer Peak Starts Early | Portland Sales Volume Report | June 2015

Summer Peak Starts Early

1013 homes were sold in Portland in May, which is 85 more than April. The market pulled out of the January and February low in grand fashion. Pending activity is picking up so expect the number of sales to be higher for June 2015.

Wild cards: As prices go up more buyers are priced out of the market which could slow the pace of sales. Interest rates remain low. Inventory is still very low.

I’m predicting around 1,100 closed sales in Portland (RMLS areas 141, 142, 143 & 148) in June.

Sales volume is a leading indicator for price. To help predict where the market is going I publish this sales volume trend report. The wisdom is that price follows volume so when you see a market trending higher in sales, prices will soon follow up and when sales volume is low, prices will stay flat or fall.
