Today our RMLS™ released the most recent market action update.  This report is important as the report represents June stats – and we are at end of 6 month market activity.

Most of us here in the Portland metro area have noticed a slow-down.  I am writing more in detail about that in my Jung’s Journal – my real estate newsletter this month.  If you don’t receive my Jung’s Journal,  please send me your email and I will be happy to share what I write to my clients about our real estate activity in the Portland metro areas.
