Moreland Sales Meeting 6.11.2013

                          Moreland Sales Meeting 6.11.13

For your Blog:

Oh sure, even when home prices are going up we have a problem – Affordability issues haven’t hit Portland yet, but with demand so high, it is something to keep in mind. One very interesting point in this article is that the most unaffordable areas BEFORE the 6 year ‘adjustment’ are the ones with the highest appreciation. Mmmm

22 out of 23 ain’t bad!  –  That’s construction activity for single family homes. And the Home Builder Association feels it would even be stronger if financing for construction loans would loosen up a little. Loose away!

A Greenhouse made of candy?? – Well, Portland would seem like a great place for one of these. It’s NOT where it’s located, but maybe one of our naked bike riders will make one!   

I’m not sure why Household Wealth Topping pre-Recession levels isn’t bigger news!  I guess this means we should all do what we haven’t done in the past 7 years – check our investments. Maybe it won’t be scary this time.
