Oregon Real Estate Market Trends & Analysis

The Oregon real estate market serves as a testament to national housing trends. As one of the hottest markets in the country, real estate in Oregon owes a great deal of its recent success to inbound migration. The state of Oregon has netted a positive migration pattern for more than a decade, and there’s nothing to suggest the momentum won’t continue moving forward.

Combined with a strong economy, relatively affordable housing, some recent adjustments to single-family zoning laws, and a continuous influx of prospective buyers, Oregon should remain a balanced and active market. Whether buying, selling or investing, the Oregon real estate market should facilitate a healthy amount of activity for the foreseeable future.
