RMLS reports on the lockbox activity on a bi-weekly basis. Although real estate takes place 24/7/365, most took a break on Thanksgiving.
Showings have dropped the last three non-holiday weeks reported. About this time last year the local real estate market ground to a near halt as winter storms shut most of the city down for nearly two weeks coupled with usual toll that the holidays take on real home selling and buying. If we avoid a repeat the weather, the holiday season for Portland real estate should be much brighter.
