Hi James,

I would agree with Dirk Knutsen.

Sales price is the most important for sellers, and you need to be the best priced for your neighborhood.

Days on the market will vary depending on the neighborhood, house style, condition, price.

Any other questions please feel free to email or call.

Happy Holiday,

Cindy Korstad

Thanks all! I appreciate the feedback. I'm doing research in the residential market because it seems more straight-forward than the commercial market (which seems to have a lot of information tracked in more places).

I am particularly interested in multifamily stats as well as stats on commercial buildings. Any resources you know about in the commercial arena would be much appreciated.

again, thanks!

Hi - If you'll click on the link below, it will take you to the most current monthly Market Action Report created by RMLS. It's not based on zip code - but by area and will give you a good feel for what the market is doing all over the Portland metro area.....not only days on market, but also appreciation/depreciation, number of listings, etc. It's a helpful report. If you'd like to be on an email list to receive this report each month when it's published, just send me your email address and I'll sign you up.

Days on Market means nothing. The listings are being pulled on and off and all kinds of tricks are being used and many times the agents have changed many times as well. The only thing important to look at is the recent sales and look at why they sold and how much psf and days on market are important follow up questions.

The devil is in the details.

Dont let anyone fool you. We drove to the airport in 15 minutes from beaverton. No getting out of the airport that is another matter.

This whole mess is a result of nobody having any de-icer. Wow!! Tens of Millions in lost revenue all over a cheap chemical.

If I can help let me know.

James, Right now the only part of Portland that is moving are the people with chains for their cars.:o)

I myself live in Oregon and as you know everyone in Oregon is honest and forthright.....Except the people in Eugene with that Uof O football team that knocked the superior team out of the Rose Bowl (OSU)

With that being said all those who have commented are giving you excellent help but I thought you might like to check this site out if you're trapped at home for the moment...
It will give you housing trends,median prices, average prices,how many sold in 3 month increments,crime statistics,ect,, and you can break it down in neighborhoods or zip codes..taken from public records..

Also this might be fun to play with..
An interactive map provided by Trulia, try it out..

Good luck and stay warm, Dunes

If you will go to my website you can map certain area's and see what is moving and what area's are not moving. Your map does not have to be a zip code, it can be an area you draw yourself. division to 52nd to burnside to 32 to division. very easy to do Let me know if I can help you in any other way. I can also set up a file that will be sent to you whenever a properety goes on the market or changes prices. Have a Merry Chritsmas and stay warm. Jean Pritchard 503-680-4449

Hello James,

I would agree you could use the RMLS or if you want a more detailed search (and if you are not yet working with an agent, but are looking for one), I would be happy to set you up on my personal custom and exclusive Market Tracker program which does exactly what you want and more. I have an equally effective report called the Property Investment Profile which will do even more than that; I can give you pending, sold, active and d.o.m. data specific to a defined redius around any particular address you choose so you can track home values. Let me know by contacting me at my email address if you would like this information. I will only need your zip code and email for the Market Tracker report. For the PIP report I will need whatever address you want me to use as a central point and the distance fo the radius you prefer as well as your email address where reports will be sent. Best to you!

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...

Is there a specific part of town you are looking at? I am working on adding these statistics to my website, though right now you can not quickly compare zip codes. But I do have dynamic statistics by area. Check out the link below and click on the part of town you are curious about. No registration or anything like that. Just free data. If you have a specific zip code in mind, we can always run reports for that zip specifically.
