There is an understood economic theory that when the luxury home market slows down, eventually the mid to low-end local real estate market follows suit. Since I have not posted stats for the Lake Oswego Luxury real estate market for some time, I decided to do some checking as we are seeing a slow-down in some areas of our Portland metro real estate markets.

What I found, was 2018 has been a very robust high-end, luxury real estate market compared to last year.

The following stats are YTD comparing 2017 to 2018 for zip codes 97034, and 97035. These luxury home sale stats are from RMLS™:
