Hi James and hope you're staying warm & dry (and, still enjoying the holidays)!! Yes, if you have a real estate agent with which you work (or if not, call or write me), you can set up a search on our Realtor's Multiple Listing Service (be sure to include the "Summary Report", that will indicate DOM/days on market). That will give you a good read on the areas you are considering. But, remember DOM does include properties where the sellers and/or Realtors have not come to the realization that our market has changed (and, remain on market at pre 2008-soon to be 2009 prices)! And, in all fairness, pricing is very difficult in this market as there is less comparable data. However, if you are attempting to track particular properties this would be an easy way to do it (plus gain valuable information about the price point that dictates a "sale").
all the very best in this snowy "winter wonderland" we call Portland...
