Portland Home Buyer Class, March 28, 12pm – For Real Estate Sellers and Buyers

March 23rd, 2015 by Jen Woodbury, MBA

There is one constant in the Portland real estate market and that’s change! Are you looking into buying or selling a home in Lake Oswego, West Linn and the Portland Metro area? Then you should know what to expect. Houses move quickly and buyers should too. Sellers are still sitting in a “position of power” but within reason.

Recently, I heard of a brand new real estate agent taking in 19 offers on her seller’s Portland real estate listing, a different seasoned agent taking in 7 offers on his Tigard listing and another agent writing up a 5th offer for his buyer because they can’t get a contract accepted even when they offer above list price. Welcome to Portland real estate. Buyers need to be pre-approved if they’re not a cash buyer, be willing to take action quickly, know the market (this is where you need an experienced agent) and have their action plan in place before they view the first property. Seller’s need an experienced Portland real estate agent to help them sort through the multiple offers and buyer contingency periods. Both buyer and seller find the market a bit daunting these days. And the secret is, so do many real estate agents.

Do you need clarity on buying a home? Sellers, are you confused about the process?

An Ever-Changing Portland, Oregon Real Estate Market

July 1st, 2013 by Jen Woodbury, MBA

What a dynamic real estate market! With a blink of the eye, we go from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market, in another blink, the interest rates shoot up in a week, then blink again while the house that was listed today is sold tonight with multiple back-up offers.  I’ve been in real estate a long time and this is an amazing market and a “moving target” that requires experience, patience and a professional real estate agent.
