Portland Market Stats & Neighborhood Report ~ Nov 2023

Overview/Fluctuations ~ November 2023 Market Data:

This time of year Inventory tends to go up a bit, but it’s notable that this is the most Inventory we’ve seen in November since 2013.  I just sat in on an annual presentation of forward projections for the coming year, and the experts participating, which included Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist for NAR, expect rates to drop several times and land around 5.75% by July. There is a lot of pent-up desire to sell among people who have been waiting for rates to drop a bit, and of course plenty of pent-up demand in Home-Buyers waiting for the same. For this reason, it is expected that we will see increasing activity starting in the spring & building as the year progresses.

Rates: “Rates have stabilized in the high sixes and I expect more good news going forward.” Gary Boyer, Regional VP, Directors Mortgage
