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.’

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

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%.

Salem Metro

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.

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

Most recent figures show an overall regional home price increase around greater Salem of 8.4%. Click here for the free latest complete Salem area real estate report, which includes Woodburn, or on the Market Action image 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.

Beyond The Reef, Aurora Oregon, Aurora State Airport

Approximate Property Location in Red

State corporation documents show the earliest registry date for the organization named Beyond the Reef Theological Center as February, 1977. Since that date, their Aurora location was used as a meeting place for the faith-based organization, which included housing and a worship center, Missionary Memorial Church.

Online information about Beyond the Reef Theological Center underscores their calling as a non-profit organization based in Aurora, Oregon, with a mission for ministry to Micronesians who live in the Pacific Northwest and on Pacific islands half a world away.

No readily available future plans for the property appear to have yet been publicly disclosed.  

A Tale of Two Auroras

14 Aug

New housing figures on our local real estate market were recently released. These stats include both hyper-local and also more regional numbers on things like area home prices, market time and inventory. This first report is from Ticor Title.

A ‘Mixed Bag’
Certain Aurora, Oregon housing figures are mixed, depending on where you live around Aurora. This is because part of the 97002 zip code is located in Marion County and the other part is Clackamas County. This is also essentially where the Portland and Salem markets meet. Depending on where an Aurora home is located can affect school districts and commute times. The good news is that Aurora, Oregon home prices are up, no matter which metric is used. 

Housing Inventory
Housing inventory can help determine how fast and how high a real estate market climbs. With fewer homes for sale, prices typically rise. With just 1.7 months of home inventory, the Clackamas County inventory figures for Aurora suggest a continued distinctly ‘seller’s market’ in that area of Aurora.

Aurora Oregon, 97002, Oregon Aurora, Aurora OR

Portland Metro Home Inventory – In Months

With 4.8 months of home inventory, the Marion County portion of Aurora remains within the normal range for a ‘balanced market,’ distinctly favoring neither buyers or sellers.
