Sherwood, Oregon Real Estate Market 2023 Forecast

While on a smaller scale, Sherwood is mirroring what we’ve been seeing across the board in Portland suburbs, and to some degree, across the country. The real estate market is starting to cool off this late summer after a scorching hot spring, and while the fall / winter season typically favors home buyers and the spring / summer typically favors home sellers in our area, the dramatic turn in the seasonal real estate market this year has been much more significant than in prior years. This has led to downrated real estate forecasts across the board. While Portland city property may be lucky to break even in 2023, we believe the suburbs around Portland will continue to outperform the city center as they did in 2021-2022, and forecast Sherwood, Oregon to having increasing prices in 2023 at a rate of 5%.
