Aurora, Oregon Real Estate: Steady

22 Mar

Fresh figures were just released on Oregon’s real estate market by the Regional Multiple Listing Service, or RMLS. To put the results in a nautical vernacular, we remain ‘steady as she goes.’

Woodburn, Woodburn Oregon, Woodburn OR, 97071, Woodburn Homes, Woodburn Real Estate, Woodburn Houses, Oregon WoodburnFor a helpful comparison, here’s a summary of our regional markets, including Portland, Salem and greater Aurora.

Portland Metro
Let’s begin with greater Portland, where our backlog of home supply is unchanged at 1.8 months.

Willamette Valley, Willamette Valley Real Estate, Oregon Real Estate, Willamette Valley Homes, Oregon Economy, Oregon Housing

This means greater Portland’s housing supply remains well below the oft-suggested ‘normal’ range of 3 to 6 months, especially when compared to years past. When the pipeline of homes is this low, it suggests we remain squarely in a ‘seller’s market.’

Along with housing inventory, home prices are another helpful indicator of market direction. The above chart is evidence of greater Portland’s sustained price growth, providing more confirmation of a ‘seller’s market.’ Most recent figures show an overall regional home price increase around greater Portland of 7.1%.

Greater Salem is also experiencing stable growth, as evidenced by little change in a relatively modest housing supply of 3.9 months as seen above, matched with an overall trend of increased home prices, seen below.

Given our location between Salem and Portland, Aurora routinely experiences a mix of both markets. While figures specific to Aurora are sparse, the bottom line is that greater Marion County home values have risen a grand total of 7.8% over the past year.

Neighboring Community Comparisons
Greater Canby came in with an annual home price increase of 11.2% and neighboring Wilsonville saw a home price increase of 9.5% during that same period. As a result, Aurora and our region remains on an upward trend. Click here and view page two for specifics about the latest housing figures that include Aurora.
