JULY 2021
Hi Friends,

Happy 4th of July Weekend! We hope your weekend plans involve a pool, river or trip to the coast to have some cooler temps and much-deserved down time after the stressful past year and recent record-breaking heat spells.

This month we're proud to feature Backline (a mental health & wellness resource for the music industry founded by a PDXer) and the market recap is brought to you by Jamie! 🔮

Also, some exciting news:  A few months ago we submitted a few of our spectacular listings to HGTV's Ultimate House Hunt 2021 and we are thrilled to report that our Dolph Park Georgian Colonial is now a finalist in the category of Amazing Kitchens! So if you could spare a few seconds we'd love for this stunning kitchen by @reillysignaturehomespdx to get your vote.
Vote Here!

Have a fun weekend, stay safe & wishing you continued health,
Susie, Matt, Jamie and Josh
This month's community spotlight is brought to you by Jamie:

My dear friend, Hilary Gleason is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Backline, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that connects music industry professionals and their families with mental health and wellness resources. Hilary launched the initiative in October 2019 after a series of tragic losses illuminated the need for a better way forward.
Life in the music industry can be incredibly isolating and difficult, with long stretches of time away from home, inconsistent income and lack of access to health insurance. Backline provides a safe, private and immediate place to go for help, serving as a critical safety net for all those who have a hand in making the music happen. 

In April of this year, Backline put together a star-studded lineup of artists to call attention to the issue. Performers included Alanis Morissette, Leon Bridges, Black Pumas, Dawes and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead. Backline's mission continues to gain momentum as they support the music industry following more than a year of closures as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Hilary lives in the Rose City Park neighborhood in Portland. She loves playing with her dog Bernie, hiking and exploring the PNW. I am so inspired by Hilary's entrepreneurial and philanthropic spirit! If you’d like more information about Backline, please visit:

July's Market Recap is brought to you by Jamie:

Although we’d never claim to have a crystal ball, lately we’ve been feeling some supernatural powers and want to give you our take on the near future for Portland real estate:
We’ve started to see a slight shift in the market as more and more people are vaccinated and summer travel plans get back on track. The picture perfect “cream puff” houses are still selling with multiple offers over a quick weekend, but other great homes are being overlooked and staying on the market 7-12 days or more!

In fact, we’ve seen quite a few price reductions on overpriced homes. Record-breaking high temperatures in the Portland area, and the opportunity for people to get on an airplane and get out of town are likely contributing factors.

Our lender partners say refinance applications have slowed, but they are hearing from buyers who are ready to jump back in after taking a break from the highly competitive Spring market. Currently, mortgage rates have not spiked, but may be creeping back towards the high 3’s into 2022. Currently, the rate for a 30-year conventional purchase with 20% down is around 3% to 3.125%.

And now, to conjure the spirit of the future: we may experience a brief slowing as the heat & vacations take hold, which will allow for a strong late-summer/early-fall market with a bump in inventory, a steadying of prices, and an influx of refreshed buyers.

If you’re considering buying a home, quit shaking that Magic Eight Ball and give us a call! We have the inside scoop and some tricks up our sleeves to get you into a great home on any budget.

If you’ve been considering selling, let us work our magic to create a personalized strategy with a combination of competitive pricing, marketing and pre-market prep to dazzle any audience and get your home sold for the best price and terms available.
In the newest episode of “Monday with Matthew,” Windermere Chief Economist Matthew Gardner explains why there is more to the significant increase in home prices over the past thirty years than meets the eye by digging into data on inflation rates and mortgage payments.
