According to RealtyTrac's September and Q3 2014 Residential & Foreclosure Sales Report, Portland's median home price is up a little more than 7 percent over last September. According to RealtyTrac, the Rose City is one of several markets that has eased up a little on appreciation and settled into a sustained pattern of single-digit increase for the last five months.
The Regional Multiple Listing Service reported that the median price for homes in Portland in September was $285,000, up from $265,000 in September 2013.Data released this week by S&P Dow Jones Indicies for its S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indicies, also showed a deceleration in home price gains across the country. Despite the slower gains in appreciation, however, S&P/Case Shiller reported that September figures for housing starts, permits and sales of existing homes were all up.

In Portland, the 2,378 closed sales in September was a 10 percent improvement over the same month last year.
