What should a home shopper expect to pay to buy into the West Linn-Lake Oswego area? The Regional Multiple Listing Service’s January housing report found the average sale price was $812,700.
That’s a big gap between usually close second West Portland, which came in at $699,900, according to Dustin Miller of Windermere Realty Trust in Lake Oswego.
The suburbs, which have long been attracting buyers who want more living and yard space, are even more valuable during COVID 19-driven confinement.
Years of declining inventory of Portland metro homes for sale have also been pushing prices higher to sellers’ benefit.
