Just Sold - Kenton Dream

2806 N Watts, Kenton
Closed - July 3, 2013 - $298,500
My clients just closed on this adorable home in Kenton, North Portland and they couldn't be more thrilled. It's fabulous newer construction with all the bells and whistles that modern homes bring BUT it also has charm, bright natural light and a solid structure. It's just 10 blocks from "downtown" Kenton and 5 blocks from the brand new Green Zebra now under construction. Interested in this neighborhood? I'm getting to know it quite well. Give me a shout via phone, 503.449.1630 or email, and  I'll show you what's on the market.

So Much Real Estate, So Little Time!

It's been a busy summer for real estate. Many of you have asked if the market is improving because there have been so many "For Sale" signs in your neighborhoods. According to the RMLS Market Action Newsletter times are changing. As of June 2012 there were 21.7% more accepted offers on homes than one year ago and 14.6% more closed sales than last year - the highest number of closed sales since May 2007! The median sales price is up by 8.6% from 2011. As of today, there are 8,977 active listings on the market which represents a 3.9 month inventory. I'll have more useful information for you in the next installment of my newsletter which will be sent out later this summer. In the meantime, I've been busy moving property!
