When I left a home inspection today, the car thermometer said 104. By the time I got home it had dropped to a more pleasant 99. There aren’t a lot of days where AC in Portland is needed but today is one that it would be nice to have.
Using our trusty SE Portland RMLS area 143 we find the following for houses sold in the last 90 days (I only used central air as a criteria, no heat pumps or window units:
0-$300,000: 724 total sales, 112 with AC; 15%
$301,000-$500,000: 316 total sales, 75 with AC; 24%
$501,000-$700,000: 41 total sales, 9 with AC; 21% (surprised at the drop)
Over $700,000: 14 total sales, 7 with AC; 50%
