The current state of Real Estate is no joke!

“Spring buying has sprung, and it’s wild and it’s crazy out there. It is causing some frustration at this point in the real estate market,”

Devyn Bachman, vice president of research at John Burns Real Estate Consulting

We typically think of Spring as the time when we get a lot more inventory on the market, but so far we are still seeing inventory decreasing.

In the Portland Metro area, the current inventory rate is .7 months–this means that if all of the houses were bought up it would take less than a month for them to be gone (Dying know more? πŸ€“Read up on inventory rate calculations here)
