With interest rates being as low as they have been for some time now and rents continuing to rise rapidly, more and more buyers have been entering the market to search for a home. Renters in the Portland area are realizing that a mortgage payment is often more affordable than paying rent each month and are taking action to secure financing and begin their search.The good news for buyers is that the number of active listings has been on the rise. That means more homes are available this summer than have been all year. Sellers are finding that this summer is a great time to sell as the average time on the market has continued to decrease. When a home is strategically priced well, it should sell quickly, often with multiple offers above list price! If you are looking to buy and sell, there are a quite a few insider tips to make your transition as seamless as possible.
There is speculation that the great interest rates we are currently seeing could soon be on the rise which could greatly affect the purchase power for many buyers pricing them out of the areas they live and work.

"Jesse Barkhurst grew up around the area and volunteered a LOT of historical and other fact information. Through the process I never had a question about what was next. He was a genuine partner. His list of contacts is deep. The inspector he recommended was extremely thorough, saving me well over $10K in issue discovery (the house was built in 1946). In the months that followed he has periodically checked in on me and my wife, providing additional contacts when we have needed them. We are very, VERY grateful to Jesse for helping us locate a home that fit our dreams and our budget!"
