Lake Oswego Real Estate This Week Stats as of Monday July 3, 2017

I have been trying to post the report for This Week Stats often because the information is much more current than even some of the RMLS™ information I post here.  Our RMLS™ Market Action Report is always one month behind the market, while This Week Stats reporting is weekly.

There are a few other key things to be aware of that makes this data a bit different than direct from our RMLS™.  It is focused on a 100% active market. Absorbed is commonly referred to as “Sold”. In this report “absorbed” refers to anything that differs from that 100% active state (i.e. pending, expired, removed). Things like DOM (days on the market), are active to “absorbed” (absorbed in the report’s terms). Also this report provides both a 90-day average (trend) and 7-day average that may differ from what a single source provides.

This Week Stats

On June 23, I posted This Week Stats and it showed  Lake Oswego’s Median List Price was $985,000.  This week, the median list price dropped to $897,000.

Also, in that June 23 report, it showed that 36% of properties had a price reduction that week; whereas, this week it shows 37% of listings had reduced their price.

The report this week also shows that days on the market dropped – good for sellers. This week listings were on the market 91 days before they sold (closed) and my last report it took 97 days for a home to sell in Lake Oswego.

How’s The Lake Oswego Real Estate Market?

In this report “How’s the market?” is measured by  the current rate of sale verses the amount of inventory. With 30 being the base, neither buyers market nor sellers market, when the index goes above 30 it implies a sellers market.  Below 30, conditions favor the buyer. It’s supply and demand using a variety of statistics including # of new listings and # of absorbed listings.

However, my June 23 post shows that the index was at 35.3 in June and this week it is 34.6 which means it is slowly trending downwards towards either a balanced market or if it continues to drop below the 30 market, it will be leaning towards a buyer’s market.

I had also reported that as a result of conversations in many of my real estate Facebook groups, agents have been noting a slow down in the market.  I had also stated that I didn’t know if this was just a summer blip or the beginning of a downward trend.  Again, it is way too early to determine whether it is an ongoing trend of just a short-time slowdown.  As the summer continues, I will be watching that and reporting on it here.
