September Closed Sales on Mt. Hood Were Huge!

by Liz Warren

September 2016 saw a huge number of closed sales for Rhododendron, Welches, Brightwood and Government Camp. Area 153 in the multiple listing service reported 27 residential sales closed for the month.

Rising equities in Portland, new residents and increased density in Portland has caused an uptick in buyers for the Mt. Hood area. This includes full time and second home buyers heading for the Cascade Foothills. Our properties are much more affordable than inside the urban growth boundary making mountain living very attractive to many!

Timberline Rim, which is Mt. Hood's largest subdivision running along the Sandy River, saw seven sales close for the month. The "Rim" as locals call it, is one of the most affordable areas to purchase on the mountain. Most homes were built within the last twenty five or so years so they are relatively new compared to many of our 1930's and 40's cabin which frequently have financing challenges. 

Speaking of affordable, two tiny homes at the Mt. Hood RV Village Resort changed hands. These properties have recreational amenities with indoor pool and weight room plus gated access for security. Downsizers love these properties and the space rent runs in the area of $550 a month.

forest service cabin inventory is way down with multiple offers on many cabins as soon as they hit the market. Only about five cabins are currently for sale. Three closed in September. These are great getaways for urban dwellers who need space to relax and get away from the crowds of big cities and small spaces. 

Here are the twenty seven sales that closed in September.

Custom Buillt Rhododendonr Home on Over Half Acre!

by Liz Warren

Listen to the sounds of the Sandy River from your front deck at this Rhododendron location in the Mt. Hood Cascade foothills. This home is "like new" and it was just finished. Four bedrooms and three and a half baths gives plenty of room to spread out! I love the great room with kitchen and family room area complete with propane fireplace and tons of windows letting in natural light. An island and breakfast bar is great for entertaining. Granite counter tops, built in desk and butler bar are just a few of the bonuses in this home.

All bedrooms are upstairs with a master bedroom and bath to die for. Tub and tiled shower! All the bedrooms are spacious. Bonus room upstairs great for media room, office or kids play room.  This sun filled area has skylights and a wet bar. 

The property is over a half acre and is flat and usable. Plenty of room for a pole barn too! 

This location is a recreational paradise with Sandy Basin Mountain Biking trail down the road and minutes to the Mt. Hood National Forest for hiking. Skiers will enjoy the easy access to the mountain with a quick 20 minute drive to the slopes. 

Tons of room for family and friends in your new Mt. Hood home only one hour to Portland!  asking $495,000
