It has been awhile since I have shared what the price appreciation has been in each of the Portland metro real estate markets.  Since our latest stats were just published, I felt now would be a good time, especially since not all areas saw appreciation.

Price Appreciation by Portland Metro Real Estate Markets

  • North Portland = 1.2%
  • NE Portland = 1.8%
  • SE Portland = 1.7%
  • Gresham/Troutdale = 5.1%
  • Milwaukie/Clackamas = 3.4%
  • Oregon City/Canby = 4.0%
  • Lake Oswego/West Linn = -0.7%
  • W Portland = -0.7%

  • Beaverton/Aloha = 5.7%

  • Columbia County = 4.2%
  • Yamhill County = 5.7%

How To Use This Information?

If you are a buyer for any of these areas, and are considering a “super low” offer, just know a seller, who is experiencing good appreciation in their area, may not accept your offer based on the current market conditions.

If you are currently a seller and thinking of putting your home on the market, this information will assist in properly pricing your home.  Likewise, if you currently have your house on the market for sale, keep in mind what direction the prices in your neighborhood are heading.


We are STILL in a sellers’ real estate market and have a long way to go before we even reach a normal market.  With 2.3 months of inventory currently for sale, we are far from the 5-6 months of inventory considered to be a “normal” real estate market, let alone a buyers’ real estate market.  Our lack of inventory is pushing prices higher.
