NEGATIVE HOME VALUE GROWTH in Portland, OR & the surrounding cities! ๐Ÿก๐Ÿง๐Ÿ“‰

Real Estate is an amazing way to build wealth, but it's not a get-rich-quick scheme. Unfortunately, the hyper-aggressive markets over the last ten years have sent the wrong message regarding the financial benefits of homeownership.

The Housing Market has been rocking and rolling for the previous few years. This current decrease in home values is the equivalent of steadying the ship or bringing home values back within the appropriate growth ranges. The average annual appreciation (i.e., the increase in your home value) should be approximately 4% to 6%. An annual appreciation of 20% is not the norm or sustainable, and negative appreciation brings the average appreciation back within the benchmark. Let's prove this theory by looking at our appreciation maps. In 2023, so far, every location is below the benchmark. The five-year average shows North Portland and NE Portland below the benchmark. The 10-year average shows all locations within or above the benchmark. And the 20-year average shows all locations within the benchmark.

Anything above 4% to 6% is an amazing gift but should not be expected or missed during a short-term market fluctuation. This will be a fun trend to watch during 2023.
