Housing market report for October 2021: Portland

October 2021 highlights

With most measures seeing little month-over-month change in Portland, Beaverton, and Hillsboro, the slower fall season seems to have set in. 

  • Portland single family homes sold slower than they have all year. Median days on market rose 29% month over month to 9 days, the highest since December. Judging from previous years, this trend will continue as the number of properties listed and pending tends to drop sharply in November and December. 
  • Beaverton and Hillsboro saw a drop in listings. The number of single family homes listed dropped 12% month over month and 10% year over year, while condos fell 31% month over month and 25% year over year. October saw increased condo listings for the prior two years followed by falls in November, so this year’s decrease may have happened a month early.
