Froth fading from condo boom

I know some of the more debated markets (Miami, Las Vegas, etc) are potentially facing condo busts due to the high amount of flippers.

This article looks at if that is a possibility within the Portland condo market as some prices are beginning to flatten and even decline.

I think that there may be some flattening in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale market, but it won't sink too far down. Too many people want to live near the water. I think that Portland may be similar in that people naturally want to live in attractive places and will pay to do so. Of course, I'd hate to see Portland be ruined with insensitive development.

Tombarnes -- I agree, I dont think there's really a bust, but that the prices are simply becoming... more economical? I think Portland is such a great city that it wont incur a huge bust market, but at this point developers may have to put a little bit more into their planning before throwing up another tower.

Judging by the amount of cranes currently up and the multiple new condos in the Pearl District, doesn't look like a bust anytime soon. Portland is sooooooo reasonably priced compared to other West Coast cities. :thumbsup:
