The real estate market is moving right along in the Portland metro area. Look at those numbers! All of the indicators are running hot and we are not even in the prime selling season yet. I expect the inventory level to rise a bit once school gets out and more sellers list their homes for sale. That said, we are still running very low on inventory locally.
These trends seem to be consistent across the country. The U.S. housing market is improving at such a rapid pace that some experts are saying that home values are approaching pre-recession highs in many major cities.
