To download the individual sales report, right-click the link below and “Save As”:



  • CapRates reported are still in the mid 5% compared to 2015 in the high 5% range. 
  • $/unit Sept 16 YTD is a 8.8% increase over Sept 15 YTD.
  • $/SqFt Sept 16 YTD  is a 7.6% increase over Sept 15 YTD.
  • Sept 2016 YTD sales = $1459M vs. Sept 2015 YTD sales of $1784M

We’re still behind 2015 YTD sales numbers.  There will be a noticeable dropoff in gross sales dollars for 2016 vs. 2015.  This is mainly due to a reduction in the >100 unit complex sales.  Here’s a history of ratio of >99 unit / <100 unit sales:


There is a noticeable slow-down in SFR sales in Portland.  We anticipate that multi-units will reflect this with pricing and rent pressure moderating compared to 2016YTD.

Interest rates may show a slight increase by EOY.  This may be one more chilling effect on the market.
