A Tale of Two Markets [INFOGRAPHIC]

MARKET UPDATE!!! Demand continues to rise with lower-than-normal inventory levels in the starter and trade-up home markets, causing prices to rise on a year-over-year basis for 85 consecutive months.

If you have been thinking of SELLING contact me #503-949-2411 and I will be happy to do a report to show you what your home is worth and how you can make the next step to your new home a reality.

Buyer Demand is Surging!!! This is never more true as I have experienced first hand over the last few weeks.

Homeowners: Now Is A Good Time To Sell Your House

I thought some of these statistics and graphs were interesting, here are just a few but check it out:
-The number of people who moved last year is half of what the rate was in the 1980s.
-The number of years someone owns a home before moving again among existing homeowners has increased. It has risen from an average of 6 years from 1985 to 2008, up to 9.5 years over the last few years.

This means there is pent up demand for properties...more Buyers than Sellers!!!
