All data is deemed accurate, but is not guaranteed.

 

I expect short sales and foreclosures (Bank owned properties) to remain a significant portion of total sales in Tigard through 2011 and most of 2012. This will keep a downward pressure on sales prices. I am not expecting appreciation to return until at least 2013. The average median price being lower than last year indicates that the home sales are in the lower price ranges. Not many expensive homes are not selling right now.

  • Now is a great time to buy because there are some real values in housing available now, but don’t buy if you expect to move within 5 years. Prices are going to stay flat or slightly decrease for a while. If the time is right for you or your family to buy a home, do it. Don’t try to play the market.
  • If you are a Seller, don’t sell unless you have to. You are going to get beat up in this market. If you must sell, price your home right when you put it up for sale, and make sure your home sparkles. It has to stand out from all the other homes on the market.
  • The real estate market is not going to improve until the unemployment rate goes down. Buyers need jobs.
