Mt. Hood Summer Sales Boom!

by Liz Warren

Mt. Hood summer sales boomed with 20 closed sales for the month of August! Believe it or not there were a few sales under $100,000 which is nearly unheard of these days. 

Mt. Hood National forest service cabins dominated the closings with seven sales! One cabin broke all sale records for a price of $337,000! Cabins maintain their popularity on the mountain for their uniqueness and pristine settings which can't be matched by any other properties in the area. 

On another note, Timberline Rim prices are escalating nicely. There's a lack of inventory and with the Rim having a more affordable pricing point, many folks are opting to purchase here for full time living and as a vacation spot. 

Listed below are the 20 sales for August 2017.

Eclipse Update from Hoodland Fire

News Release from Hoodland Fire Dist. #74

Welches, Or - Our Fire District is expecting thousands of visitors from all over the world to travel through or view the eclipse near Mt. Hood. Although the eclipse does not occur until Monday, the influx of visitors is expected to impact our area throughout the weekend starting today, August 17. Highway 26 through the Hoodland corridor could see traffic congestion to the point of gridlock. The public needs to be aware that there are no other major roads to bypass Highway 26 between Sandy and Government Camp.

To prepare for gridlock on Highway 26, Hoodland Fire District is implementing the use of two (2) BMW adventure sport motorcycles staffed with a Paramedic and EMT to respond to emergency incidents ahead of larger fire engines. The two motorcycles were rented from Cascade Back Road Adventures and Rentals out of Wahkiacus, Washington. The "motor-medic" crews will provide advanced medical care as well as scene management or landing zone support and will be equipped with medical, traffic control and landing zone equipment. The Fire District is also utilizing their side-by-side ATV out of the Government Camp substation to reach visitors camping on National Forest lands around the Government Camp area.

Hoodland Fire District would like to remind Fire District residents to be prepared for the Eclipse that will occur this Monday, August 21. Residents are asked to take some proactive measures to minimize the impact. Use common sense. Do not travel over the weekend and especially Monday if you do not have to. If it is necessary, allow yourself plenty of extra time to get to your destination. Remember first responders may also have trouble traveling to calls for service due to roadway congestion; however, there may be some delays in response time.

Heat Wave and Haze

by Liz Warren

There's smoke in the air and a recent trip to Summit Meadows in Government Camp showed how hazy the view is around Mt. Hood. Mt. Jefferson has contributed to our local haze. Washington state is in the same boat with over 100 wildfires sending smoke south from Canada.

Seven day forecast does not show a lot of improvement until next Thursday when we will receive a little bit of rain (we hope). 

Scorching heat for the Welches Mt. Hood area doesn't show percipitation for another week!

Check out the June sales statistics from RMLS! The average price of the 14 sales reached $343,300 with year to date average sales price hitting $312,200. These numbers tell the tale of less inventory and rising prices on the mountain.

As of today there are 66 properties for sale with 26 of those over $400,000. Twelve properties are under $200,000 with several in parks, which have rental fees or on leased land in the Mt. Hood National Forest. June saw 32 new listings hit the market and for July there's been a steady stream of new listings.

The rainy spring really delayed sellers getting their properties ready for market. With the shortage of contractors, landscapers, and general services on the mountain getting work done has been a real challenge bringing late comers to the summer market.
