The Oregon real estate market in 2024 is experiencing dynamic changes, and with Privy now having first-party MLS access through the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS), users can access even more precise and timely data. Privy, a comprehensive real estate investing platform, helps investors filter down to the best deals and provides precise analysis to minimize risk and maximize profit.

Market Overview

Rising Home Prices

In 2024, the median home price in Oregon rose by 3.9% year-over-year to $482,200. This increase is driven by high demand and limited inventory, with cities like Redmond and Tigard seeing significant price hikes. Privy’s MLS access allows users to track these trends in real time, ensuring they have the most accurate information when making investment decisions.

Increased Sales Activity

Despite higher interest rates, the number of homes sold in Oregon has increased. Buyers remain active due to Oregon’s attractive living conditions and economic opportunities. Privy helps investors stay ahead by refining thousands of listings into their preferred buy box, making it easier to identify profitable opportunities.

Limited Inventory and Competitive Bidding

Oregon’s low inventory has created a seller’s market with competitive bidding. Homes in urban areas like Portland often receive multiple offers and sell quickly, sometimes above the asking price. Privy’s platform allows users to analyze these competitive environments, providing confidence in the numbers and helping investors make informed decisions quickly.
