Consistent Numbers of Mountain Sales for Fall 2012!

by Liz Warren

It's been an active fall for sales in the Mt. Hood area. Here are the market action stats for this past October. As November is quickly coming to a close we expect current trends to continue in a postive manner. 

RMLS market action shows that pending sales are up 66% for the month of October. There are 25 pending sales currently in RMLS . Part of this high number of pending sales are short sales waiting for approval from lenders and they carry over for months. This could definitely give a false sense of a realistic view of the market.  The good news is that by the end of October we have as many sales as we had in 2011. We will likely see an increase of 20% in number of sales over last year by the end of this year.

The eleven sales show average marketing days as 315! Plenty of inventory shows we have not come close to a buyers market yet. The monthly cost to purchase today is incredibly low historically. If you are looking to purchase on the mountain today's inventory has a lot to choose from! Check out the stats below!

Two Great Mt. Hood National Forest Cabins

by Liz Warren

Have you ever thought about buying a leased land cabin in the Mt. Hood National Forest? Skiers and snow boarders who visit the Government Camp area in the winter often find these forest cabins a much more affordable choice than the condos and larger homes in the snow zone of the mountain. Here are two great cabins currently for sale:

Located near Rhododendron and pretty good winter access for skiers: This cabin has a newer addition with an updated kitchen, two full bedrooms and a loft that kids go crazy over! It's located on the Zig Zag river. A hot tub comes with the cabin too. $130,000

This classic original has one of the most amazing fireplaces on forest service land. It goes from floor to ceiling. The cabin has very tall ceilings and all updated windows too. It's not too far from the slopes and entire ski teams would stay in this cabin when competing on Mt. Hood. The Zig Zag river is steps from the cabin and a big detached deck is perfect for summer barbeques. Government Camp is only about seven minutes away for skiing. $180,000.
