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.
