Oregon Housing Market-

The median home value in Oregon is $372,868. Oregon home values have gone up 3.5% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will fall -1.5% within the next year. The median list price per square foot in Oregon is $218. The median price of homes currently listed in Oregon is $378,900 while the median price of homes that sold is $359,600. The median rent price in Oregon is $1,850.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Oregon 1.1 homes are foreclosed (per 10,000). This is lower than the national value of 1.2

Mortgage delinquency is the first step in the foreclosure process. This is when a homeowner fails to make a mortgage payment. The percent of delinquent mortgages in Oregon is 0.6%, which is lower than the national value of 1.1%. With U.S. home values having fallen by more than 20% nationally from their peak in 2007 until their trough in late 2011, many homeowners are now underwater on their mortgages, meaning they owe more than their home is worth. The percent of Oregon homeowners underwater on their mortgage is 4.1%.

What does this mean for you? With so many out-of-state buyers coming to Oregon, and Central Oregon specifically, houses are barely on the market before they are swooped up, so if you are thinking of selling, it’s a great time to do so, even though with the pandemic, it may seem otherwise. 

Give us a call so we can help sell your current home, and get you into a new one, and as always, don’t hesitate to call or email us with any questions you may have!
