Wilsonville Real Estate News

Wilsonville Meadows

Recent information on our local Wilsonville real estate market is now available. With school beginning as we move toward Autumn, it’s reasonable to expect a somewhat less robust pace of home sales.

Many, though certainly not all, 2014 buyers have bought their home by now. This brings “empty-nesters,” relocating transferees, singles, and young families to the forefront as a bigger slice of the buyer pool for the remainder of the year. For sellers, Autumn can bring more motivated buyers with less competition from other home sellers, when compared to Spring.

Wilsonville’s housing market is on the upswing

Partly because the inventory of homes for sale throughout the area is unchanged, Wilsonville’s housing market is relatively stable. There remains a 2.8 month supply of homes throughout our region.

Take Our Poll: Build A Wilsonville Aquatic Center?

Wilsonville residents have discussed building a swim center for many years. Now it appears the opportunity is gaining steam. A recent news article provides background on current prospects for a Wilsonville aquatic center.

Wilsonville Homes, Wilsonville Oregon, Wilsonville Real Estate, Wilsonville Properties, Wilsonville Aquatic Center, Wilsonville Swim Pool, Wilsonville Swimming Pool, Wilsonville Oregon
Many Wilsonville Residents Support An Aquatic Center

There are plenty of reasons to consider the construction of a swim center in Wilsonville. Learning to swim is a potentially life-saving and healthful activity, plus an aquatic center further promotes youth sports and senior exercise. In essence, a new swimming pool offers benefits for virtually everyone in our community.

Wilsonville Homes, Wilsonville Oregon, Wilsonville Real Estate, Wilsonville Properties, Wilsonville Aquatic Center, Wilsonville Swim Pool, Wilsonville Swimming Pool, Wilsonville Oregon
Learning To Swim Can Be Fun

One primary reason against such an aquatic center is cost, and how best to raise the necessary funds.

Take our poll. Should Wilsonville move forward and build an aquatic center?

 

 

Wilsonville Home Sales Down, Average Price Up

A recent report on Wilsonville area real estate shows a continued solid increase in local home values. Compared to last year, Wilsonville home prices are now up 8.1% over this same time last year. If this trend continues, we could be well on our way to a good year for Wilsonville real estate.

What Is And What Should Never Be (With apologies to Led Zeppelin) But the real story is that Wilsonville home values have some of the lowest increases in our entire region. On top of that, Wilsonville pending sales changed -3.8% for the recent month measured and -15.7% compared to last year! As a result, Wilsonville’s solid home prices are still creeping upward. But fewer Wilsonville homes are now being sold.

Wilsonville Homes, Wilsonville Properties, Wilsonville Real Estate, Wilsonville Oregon
Home Prices Are Up 8.1% Around Wilsonville – Click Image to Enlarge

With our 8.1% annual home price increase, Wilsonville now finishes ahead of only West Portland (7.1%) and Lake Oswego/West Linn (7.9%). Every other community in our region fared better than Wilsonville for home price appreciation.

But there’s an explanation. Perhaps not surprisingly, these three areas sport some of our area’s highest average selling prices, with Tigard/Wilsonville at $306,000, West Portland at $379,900 and Lake Oswego/West Linn at $440,500.

Both Sides Now (With apologies to Judy Collins) The flip side of the equation is interesting, especially if one looks where our area’s price appreciation is greatest. As expected, those communities have lower average sales prices. They include SE Portland with 15.4% (($249,000), Milwaukie/Clackamas at 14.8% (($275,000) and Columbia County an astronomical 25.9% ($188,700).

Like Wilsonville, Regional Home Prices Are Rising Too, As Seen In This Chart

Feeling Stronger Every Day? (With apologies to Chicago) The bottom line is that Wilsonville home prices continue to increase, and that’s one good sign of a strengthening market. There are several factors helping to boost Wilsonville area home prices. These include our area’s real estate seasonality, which brings improved home buying weather this time of year.

Gains are also due in part to a continued recovery from the Great Recession which began around December, 2007. However, perhaps the key reason to explain our real estate boost is a significantly reduced inventory of homes for sale.

Our Region Would Run Out of Homes in 2.8 Months

This Charming Wilsonville Home Is For Sale With Certified Realty

What Does This Mean For Wilsonville Homebuyers & Homesellers? Low home inventory means there are fewer houses for sale. A main effect of having fewer homes for sale typically means less selection and higher prices. This is the classic ‘seller’s market,’ where buyers lose a significant amount of leverage. This means buyers have to compete more against one another to find a desirable home. As a result, home prices rise. If you’ve thought about selling your Wilsonville home, this may be your best opportunity for the foreseeable future. However, if Wilsonville home owners en masse begin sensing the time is right to sell, such a concomitant increase in supply could cancel projected home price gains.

Wilsonville Homes, Wilsonville Properties, Wilsonville Real Estate, Wilsonville Oregon
How Low Will Our Wilsonville Area Home Inventory Go?

Limbo, How Low Will We Go? (With apologies to Chubby Checker) Another reason for our home inventory’s newsworthy nature has to do with the time of year. We’re already trending slightly ahead of 2013 given our latest inventory figure of 2.8 months from April.  Last year, the months of May, June and July were lowest for regional inventory. So the lowest number of available homes for sale may yet be ahead.

Wilsonville Homes, Wilsonville Properties, Wilsonville Real Estate, Wilsonville Oregon
Timing The Market Perfectly Can Be Difficult

Timing The Market Based on last year’s performance, homeowners may have another few months before the supply of homes begins climbing back up. So if you’re considering a Wilsonville area home sale in 2014, acting sooner is likely to be in your favor before inventory rises and other events are factored in, like families purchasing before the school year begins.

3 Reasons To Sell Your Wilsonville Home Now

With the arrival of Spring’s beautiful weather, many Wilsonville homeowners are hearing others say: “Now is an excellent time to consider placing your home on the market for sale.”

Wilsonville Homes
Wilsonville Field

However, you may have wondered why exactly is now such a good time to sell your Wilsonville home? Is it all about sunny skies? So if you’ve ever thought about selling your Wilsonville property, this article is for you. And here are three good reasons to now sell your Wilsonville, Oregon home:

Reduced Inventory
There are fewer homes on the market right now. Our 3.1 month supply of homes means demand is stronger. That frequently translates to higher home prices. And with fewer competing sellers, you may need to negotiate less for your best deal.

Our Housing Inventory Drops During Spring & Summer

Seasonality
Many home buyers shop in earnest during better weather. Why? It’s easier, more fun and there’s more daylight to work with. But there’s one other reason you may not have considered: School is out soon and that is a great opportunity for families with kids to move during Summer Vacation. Don’t miss out on these buyers!

Interest Rates
One of the big factors affecting home affordability is the interest rate your lender charges. Interest rates remain near historic lows. This means even with rising prices, buyers can find homes to be more affordable if interest rates stay attractive.

Wilsonville Home Prices Up, Sales Drop

A new report on Wilsonville area home sales reveals fewer local properties have sold so far this year, with Wilsonville home prices still up nicely. The number of home sales for greater Wilsonville changed by -17.9%, with the average selling price up 9.0%.

Wilsonville Homes, Wilsonville Real Estate

Part of the reason behind the drop in sales is likely due to a decrease in our regional supply of homes.  That’s because our market would now run out of homes to sell in 3.1 months. This is considered a relatively low supply by historical standards, but not uncommon during Spring and Summer months.
