Oregon Catches Up with the National Real Estate Market

Oregon Catches Up with the National Real Estate Market- and not in good way.  KGW.com has an online story on foreclosures this morning from the AP:

Associated Press
 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Like
the rest of the U.S., Oregon saw home prices soar during the housing
bubble despite relatively stagnant wages.

 

 

Now it’s becoming apparent that many Oregonians bought places they couldn’t afford. 

The foreclosure listing service RealtyTrac says Nevada, California,
Arizona and Florida had the nation’s top foreclosure rates in January.

But at No. 5 is Oregon, which is making its first appearance on
RealtyTrac’s monthly list of foreclosure hot spots.

Rounding out the top 10 were Illinois, Michigan, Georgia, Idaho and Ohio.

  1. Arizona is THE best place to be buying right now in my opinion. Home prices are cheaper than they have ever been and the market is saturated with foreclosures BUT not for long. I dont think that it will be like this for long at all. More investors are buying and there will be a lot of money made here.
