Not-so-great if you've got a home you want to sell? Or just right — for everybody? Home values provide some answers. They indicate that the market in Oregon is heating up, according to Zillow, though you might find vast differences from one city or one corner of the state to the next. Current home values in Oregon Home values have been rising throughout Oregon and are up 3.14% from a year ago. Statewide, the median value for a single-family home — meaning half are worth more, half are worth less — is currently $347,800, Zillow says. Could you afford that? Let's say you want to buy that mid-priced home using a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at this week's average interest rate, which is a low 3.57%, says mortgage company Freddie Mac. With the 30-year mortgage rate at 3.57% and the median home price for Oregon at $347,800, a representative monthly mortgage payment would be $1,575. How the Oregon housing market stacks up:

Property values in Oregon are high by historical standards and are highe ...
