What Did That Home Sell For?!? How Multiple Offers Raise Prices Up in Portland

What did that home sell for?!?

How Multiple Offers Raise Prices Up in Portland

If you’ve been looking for a home in Portland Oregon lately you know it’s not easy being a buyer. The inventory is so low that most good homes in close-in areas are getting multiple offers.

When more than one offer is written on a property you know the price is going up, but how much more, over the list price, are homes really selling for?

I took a look at one month of sales in Portland for homes with RMLS remarks that said there were multiple offers or that the seller was reviewing offers a couple days after listing the house. Here’s what I found:

For homes sold in Portland with multiple offers in Winter/Spring 2015

North Portland: 104% of asking price
North East Portland: 106.5% of asking price
South East Portland: 107% of asking price

Now take the average list price and see how much that pushes prices in dollars:

North Portland: $282,000 average list price = $11,300 over list
North East Portland: $371,000 average list price = $24,100 over list
South East Portland: $383,000 average list price = $26,800 over list
