The Most Expensive Homes for Sale in Oregon

Rapidly shrinking inventories, a severe shortage in new housing developments and a continuously growing population have made their impact on Oregon’s housing market, especially in the Portland metro area. First-time home-buyers are struggling to find affordable homes here, even middle-income earners. As prices and interest rates continue to climb, while the supply of available properties shrinks, especially as fewer buyers trade up their homes, homeownership is becoming increasingly difficult in what was once the last affordable bastion for housing on the pricey West Coast.

As Millennials enter the home-buying market in increasing numbers – and 2017 is predicted to be a big year for releasing pent-up demand from Gen Y – the Pacific Northwest is expected to see continued price expansions and ever-diminishing time spent on the market.

Dubbed the 8th hottest housing market for luxury real estate globally in 2016, thanks to a significant uptick in luxury property sales to deep-pocketed tech buyers, Portland’s luxury market was also marred by limited inventory. Although the state’s residential luxury segment has contracted noticeably, Oregon still has uber-pricey real estate up for grabs. Ranging in price from $10,000,000 to $24,000,000, the most expensive homes for sale in Oregon right now are a blend of wine country estates and sprawling working ranches.

Wine cellars and wine production facilities abound at the upper end of Oregon’s real estate market, as do endless acreages of Oregon wilderness, teaming with animals– including big game. Sprawling ranching operations showcase equestrian and cattle facilities along with show stopping high-end homes with all the swanky amenities deep-pocketed buyers might want. Pools, home theaters, game rooms, oversized suites, vineyards, gourmet kitchens and high-quality craftsmanship characterize the state’s most luxurious homes on the market right now.

As for the most expensive home for sale in Oregon at the moment, two pricey properties tied for the title. Scroll down to check out the two sprawling ranches, both of which come with dozens of bedrooms and fully functional ranching operations.
