“Hottest Market” Status Brings Competition and Drives Competition Down to Corvallis, Albany and Eugene!

- fastest rising prices
- least available inventory
These markets are inflating at the annual rate of 4.3% and less.
What was the normal annual rate of inflation for single family properties prior to the great recession?
This chart shows that more than 5% on average in the last 40 years.
US Housing Price Index
These statistic show that based on median house price for the last ??? years:
As you can see in this recording of price change of the median price since 1968, the housing average inflation has been 6.41 percent! One might want to use that national statistic to hedge their investing bet on over the long haul, not to mention the tax breaks that also save you a ton of money. Yes, there are losses in some years, and some years are bubble great times! (Note: This chart ends before the decline of 2006.) So, today’s 4.7% in Nashville is a hot deal! Here in Oregon, we are stable or in an increase in Portland. Many of our fellow investors in the Portland area are looking to invest south, so watch out investors in Albany, Corvallis and Eugene! –
