Aurora, Oregon Real Estate: Steady

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%.

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.

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.

Aurora Real Estate: Breathtaking

There are many possible words to describe people, places, things and events. A recent shift in Oregon real estate brings to mind the word ‘breathtaking.’

Ingrid Style
A different kind of breathtaking: Film star Ingrid Bergman in 1946  (1915 – 1982)

And while that’s a term normally reserved for the Grand Canyon or certain Hollywood starlets, ‘breathtaking’ also conjures the notion of astonishment, breaking fresh ground, being out of the ordinary, or of something newly discovered.

Rarity Underscores Breathtaking
Given the new and dramatic change in one particular key Oregon housing factor, what we’re now observing as a regional housing trend surrounding Aurora, Oregon is ‘breathtaking’ to many real estate professionals. One reason is because the last time we saw a similar shift was clear back in the 1990’s, nearly two decades ago.

Oregon Housing Inventory
‘Normal’ real estate markets are calculated in months of supply and typically range in the neighborhood of 3 to 6 months of housing inventory. Remember that 3 to 6 month range, then see where we are now:

PortlandMetroArea-page-001-242x300 (1)
Portland Home Inventory

Simply put, this new data indicates that where things sit today, greater Portland would be ‘out of homes’ to purchase in a mere 36 days. And not even greater Salem, which routinely sees higher inventory levels than greater Portland, has escaped the drop:

PolkandMarionCounties-page-001-230x300 (1)
Salem Home Inventory

What This Means
Given our location equidistant to both Salem and Portland markets, the Aurora, Oregon housing market is a bit mixed in how we’re affected. As a general rule of thumb, if your Aurora property is located within Clackamas County, expect to more closely reflect the Portland market. Marion County properties typically align more with the Salem market. Either way, housing demand is up and supply is way down.

A Big Question
Could these current low inventory figures significantly increase anytime soon? Certainly. But they could also drop even lower. For the moment and with fewer properties available for purchase, such drops in an already-low home supply routinely bring with them a rise in prices. This further stokes a ‘seller’s market.’ 

Advantage: Sellers
With both major regional housing markets in such short supply, now could be the time to consider selling. A seller’s market is typically the best time of all to sell real estate. In addition, interest rates remain near all-time lows. This makes your property even more attractive, since buyers can afford ‘more house for less money.’
