Summer Buying Trends With Urban Nest's Own Rachel Freed

In this series, we share home buying and selling advice, insight, and trends from our esteemed agents that keep their fingers on the pulse of Portland's real estate market.


"This summer is proving to be a great time for buyers.  About five weeks ago the market began to slow and we started to see homes sitting on the market for longer periods of time and sellers becoming more negotiable.  I actually found myself writing an offer for a great house at $520,000 in a quintessential SE Portland neighborhood and we didn't even have to compete in a bidding war! It really is a great time to be a buyer."
