Market Action Statistical Summaries Receive a Refresh


The archive of RMLS™ Market Action statistical summaries on RMLSweb has a fresh new look, thanks to RMLS™ Business Analyst/Policy Manager Christina Smestad.


If you have never seen them, statistical summaries compile many years of data from our Market Action newsletter for most areas in the RMLS™ region so readers can compare long-term market movements in key areas.

In order to improve the statistical summaries we standardized the data, added a few numbers not previously compiled, and reworked the layout to be more readable and printer-friendly. Our revised versions combine average and median sales price into one report and add inventory counts to the summary report. We think you’ll like what you see!

Available reports include average sales price, average and median sales price by area, closed sales, market percent and time by price, median sales price, new listings, pending listings, and a summary report. Affordability summaries are available for the Portland metro area, Clark County, and Lane County. Statistical summaries are currently available for those areas as well as Baker County, Columbia Basin, Coos County, Curry County, Douglas County, Mid-Columbia, Union County, and Wallowa County.

StatSumFolderThe treasury of statistical summaries may be accessed online two ways. Currently, subscribers logged in to RMLSweb may navigate to Toolkit->All Documents, then expand the folder titled “Market Action Statistical Summaries” on the left sidebar to find subgroups of specific geographic regions (see image at left).

As of March 28, a shortcut will be available allowing users to access quick links to statistical summaries directly from the RMLSweb menu. Subscribers logged in to RMLSweb may navigate to Statistics->Statistical Summaries for a more navigable list of geographic areas.

Moving forward, RMLS™ will update the statistical summaries more frequently than the annual updates of the past. We’re also working to expand the reports into other areas: Polk and Marion Counties, Grant County, North Coastal Communities, and Cowlitz County are planned additions for the future!

    Hi Heather,

    thanks for the update on the real estate statistical summaries.

    One of the Clark County graphs has an error. Who do we report this to?

    Hi, Sure would be nice if “Yamhill County” area 156 had it’s own stats., rather than being lumped into Portland Metro Area. Any chance we could accomplish this?

      Thanks for the feedback! I’ll pass it along to those who make decisions about our statistical offerings.

      I would like to see Yamhill County as a separate stat too. I will send a note to as I do not see any response otherwise to Ron’s request.

        In the time since Ron originally left his comment (March 2017), RMLS™ has broken out Yamhill County in the statistical summaries documents on RMLSweb. Information for Yamhill County is still separated out on a monthly basis in Market Action, under the Area Report.
