El Portal’s listings are priced all over the place considering the average price per square foot is currently $113 according to this year’s closed sales. The highest and only sale above $200/sq.ft. was for 283 NE 86th Street, selling at $257/ sq. ft. and lowest at $54/ sq. ft. for a foreclosure.
As always, El Portal’s recuperation will depend on sellers’ willingness to price correctly from the start, which will move properties quickly. Please keep in mind that 59% of the current inventory in El Portal are distressed sales (short sales and foreclosures), and 57% of pending sales are also distressed. As soon as the distressed inventory starts decreasing, it will also stimulate recovery in that market.
