Real Estate Agent with Bella Casa Real Estate Group

 After being asked the question many times as to how much have property values decreased, I put together this chart based on year end data from the MLS.  This has helped sellers significantly understand the impact of 2009 on their properties and calm some fears after hearing some of the low prices that properties have sold for.  This  chart shows that on average, values lost in the Portland Metro Region of Oregon ran -12% to -15% in 2009.  It helps clients understand the actual $ impact on average sales prices are and the long Days on Market that are still dogging us here.  We, as brokers here in Yamhill County Oregon, are planning for an improving market.  Stay tuned as the year moves along and Please share with me how your market is trending.

Wow.  Similar stats for Jackson county here in Southern Oregon.  I think we are bouncing around at the bottom here.
