Buying, selling and operating apartments in Portland

Individual Portland Apartment Sales >$450K – Jan 2013 | 8 April 2013



Attached is a list of individual Portland-area sales of apartment complexes greater than $450,000 in January 2013.  We’ve included $/unit, $/sqft , unit count, year built and CapRate (as reported) and a comparison to December 2011 averages.  January 2012 had 1 sale of 140 units (plus retail)  at $55M that  skews averages.


Hot Markets – Multnomah county and Beaverton-Hillsboro are in demand due to jobs, average income and proximity to amenities

Interest Rates – Recently the economy has show some initial signs of strength (after four years we should hope so) and long T-bills have begun to drop in price (which means yields go up).  Both of these are indicators of a rise in interest rates.  If you have not locked in a long-term loan on your property – DO IT NOW!

We’ve issued our 2007-2012 history broken down by county.  If you’d like a copy, eMail me and I can send under separate cover when done.
