For early September, 2012 the median list price for detached homes for sale in Lake Oswego is $632,475 which is lower than asking prices seen earlier in the summer buying season. Home buyers’ activity has also been trending down recently which has contributed to average days on market for mls listings to climb to 206. While nobody can predict the future, flagging buyer demand, settling prices combined with increased market times may tend to indicate a weakening market or at least a slowdown in this year’s home values rebound. Other areas such as Happy Valley, Oregon have seen similar market conditions in recent weeks.

Buying a Home:
Lake Oswego, Oregon
Choosing to buy a home is a big decision. Once that decision is made then come a hundred other questions such as area, must-haves, can’t stands and of course price range. Also, how important is time and condition of the property? If you don’t mind the extra wait or doing some repairs a short sale or a foreclosure listing can often be a way to make your money go further. However, as someone once said “time is money” so for you getting a nice place to live now may be worth more than waiting around for months hunting for the “perfect” deal. After all, if you’re in an expensive rental right now or just need a place to live urgently then getting a good deal rather than a “once-in-a-blue-moon” deal may be worth considering.
