Overview/Fluctuations ~ February 2024 Market Data

OK! We still need more Inventory but, noting the usual surge at the beginning of the year, we’re still in decent shape compared to recent history. More people are Listing their homes than at this time last year, and Buyer activity is up as evidenced by the rise in Pending sales/Accepted Offers over last month. East side prices all appear to be rising and we see West Portland, Beaverton, Tigard and Hillsboro areas all seeming to take a little dip.
