There has been a lot of discussion in the real estate community about a slow-down in our marketplace.

The other day I posted our latest RMLS™ stats for May. Those stats are obviously 30 days behind the current data. The stats I am posting below are from Altos Research and are the most recent stats as of today. There will be a future blog post about our 97034 Lake Oswego zip code too.

In July, when the June RMLS™ stats are posted, I will write a blog post on what the appreciation rate has been for the past 6 months, as I have been following that data for the year.

This Week Stats Zip 97035

Per the stats above, prices in zip code 97035 – Lake Oswego, have increased by 4% but the increase has been cooling. Inventory continues to increase too. While it is still a sellers’ market, that too is slowing. If the inventory in zip code 97035 continues to increase, it will slowly edge towards a buyers’ market, albeit, we are still a long ways off.

Typically, the month of June is not always a busy month here in real estate.  That is mainly because of graduations, weddings, and people starting their vacations.  I am not an economist, and cannot read the data beyond what is presented at the time.  None of us know for sure if this a definite slow-down or if it will be a continuing trend, or if it is only a seasonal blip.

Looking back is far easier to see what the trend has been. Looking forward is far more difficult.  Again, no one has a crystal ball and none of the economists seem to ever get it correct either.

Short Sales & Foreclosures

While this most certainly is not on our radar, I have seen several short sales and approximately 5-8 Lake Oswego foreclosures lately.  This, at this point in time really doesn’t mean a lot in its entirety, but I am also watching those properties.
