Dialed Homes Still Fetching A Premium in the Portland Real Estate Market

By Virginia Barden, September 23, 2021

The word on the street the past few months is that the Portland Real Estate Market has cooled off. While the average number of offers and the price over asking a home sells for has lowered in the months of August and September, pristine homes with stylish updates are still setting records.  This 2 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, 1212 sq ft home just sold for $605psf- that’s a record for this neighborhood! The sellers even earned a much less stressful transaction because the buyers waived the inspection contingency altogether.


If you’re considering selling your home, you’ll be doing yourself a big favor by strategically investing some time and money in getting your home prepared and looking it’s best prior to listing. Not all improvements will earn you a return on your dollar. Choosing an agent who is in touch with what brings value to buyers is key to earning the most money and stress-reducing terms you can.


Congratulations to my very happy sellers! Your hard work paid off.
