How does Portland Real Estate Measure Up with the rest of the country?
Over the past year or so, I have been reporting that Portland Real Estate has been experiencing a mini boom. Inventories are low and so are interest rates, so prices have been going up. It is getting harder and harder to find homes for buyers and sellers are moving into the power position... especially in the close-in neighborhoods.
An article on the Spot Property website ranks Portland as the 6th best place to sell a home out of the 33 major metropolitan areas that they track....
Here is some information about Condos in Portland, but if you would like for us to give you more detailed information about these or any other Portland Condos, just give us a call at 503-810-2219 or click here for more information about Brian Porter.
The Meriwether West
is one of a few moderately priced condos in Portland, but it is an established building because it was one of the first condos built at the South Waterfront. It did not suffer the auctions like the John Ross or the Atwater, so prices have been more stable. It shares underground parking, a party room and outdoor space with the Meriwether East. However, it has its own concierge. It is a quality building with less impressive views that the Meriwether East and the Atwater but it represents a great value compared to the Pearl District.
The McKenzie Condos
are located at the corner of NW Glisan and 12th Ave above the Starbucks. The main floor of the building is retail, and floors 2 to 6 are condos. There are 68 condos in the McKenzie and 13,500sf of retail. This building is a good combination of quality and value. No frills, but nice features. No concierge, but it does have a nice lobby with finished concrete floors that give the condos an industrial and modern feel. The McKenzie is a John Carroll development that was finished in 1998. Condos come up for sale from time to time, but they sell quickly when they are priced at market value.
The Benson Towers
are located in Southwest Portland at 11th Ave and Clay, 2 blocks from Safeway, 2 blocks from the Park Blocks and close to the cultural district and PSU. Public transportation is free on the streetcar that stops right in front of the condos. The units are somewhat small, but they make excellent use of the space. The condos at the Benson have walls of windows and beatuiful views, terraces, teak floors, quartz countertops and other high end finishes. The common areas of the building include, fountains, gardens, secure parking, a library, and a fitness center with a Jacuzzi; however there is no concierge. This building was finished about the time the crash occurred, but they managed to sell all of the units, and currently the only units available at this time are resale.
The John Ross Condominium
is a fantastic value. At 20 to 40% less on a price per square foot basis than the pearl district, it is quite a bargain. Many units have views of the Willamette River, others have views of the west hills. There is a concierge, a party room, a BBQ area on the rooftop of the podium level and a beautiful foyer with comfortable seating, high quality art and free wifi. It is steps away from the streetcar to downtown and the tram to OHSU, so many residents work downtown or at the Hospital. It was built in 2006, and it finally sold out in 2010. Due to the decrease in property Values at the John Ross, in 2011, there were quite a few short sales in. In my opinion, the John Ross is one of the best values in high rise condos in Portland.
