Homes sales during 2016 barely increased from the previous year by 1.1 percent in Clackamas County and fell in both Washington and Multnomah counties by -0.4 percent and -4.7 percent, respectively.
Experts in the industry report that homebuyers face a narrow supply of homes in the Portland Metro area with new-home construction slow to ramp up and a shortage of existing homes on the market. This situation is keeping prices elevated while dampening the number of sales in the region.
