Lake Oswego Real Estate Westlake Stats First 6 Months 2016 vs. 2017

It has been a while since I have broken down stats for specific neighborhoods.  Of course, since I live and work in Westlake my first post for this time period is for the Westlake neighborhood.

The stats below represent single family homes only in the Westlake neigborhood.  Westlake has some children going to two different elementary schools – Oak Creek and Lake Grove.

Below is a comparison of the first six months of 2016 vs. 2017.

Westlake Stats 2016

Westlake Stats 2017


Comparing the first six months of 2016 vs. 2017, there were more houses sold in 2016 (69) than during the first six months of this year (66).  Our inventory has been extremely low and the inventory of homes for sale was only up slightly in 2017 – 1.6 months vs. 1.5 months in 2016.

Days on the market were also similar.  It took 64 days in the first 6 months of 2017 vs. 63 days in 2016.

However, it was a “hotter” market in 2016 as the final sales prices vs. orginal list price were 100% in the first six months of 2016; whereas, in 2017, buyers negotiated their final sales price to 96.11% of the original list price during this first six months.

Price per sq. ft. also has dropped in the first six months of 2017.  In 2016, price per sq. ft. was $270 while in 2017 thus far the price per sq. ft. is at $267.

Again, as I always say, stats vary street by street, and neighborhood by neighborhood.  Just because homes are selling quickly in one neighborhood within our Lake Oswego real estate market, does not always mean they are selling quickly in another neighborhood within Lake Oswego.
