10 Must-See Open Houses in Portland this Weekend (4/29-5/2)

In this hot seller’s market, it’s more important than ever to be on top of open houses. Recently, this top real estate blog found that it takes an average of 25 showings to sell a home in Portland. That high number might make it sound like the ball is in the buyer’s court. But before you come to that conclusion, consider the fact that mid-priced homes are selling at an average of 7 days on the market, according to our latest RMLS data. What you can conclude, as this podcast does, is that buyers are actually seeing more and more listings as they try to beat out the competition.

Many of the houses on this list are newly on the market. That means they expect to take advantage of how quickly homes are flying off the shelves by having an open house. The sellers likely expect multiple bids by the end of the weekend. So, if you’re buying, it’s in your best interest to know what’s out there and keep on top of those open houses!

So let’s take a look at some of the most exciting prospects you can easily view this weekend.
