Mt. Hood Real Esate Sales for November 2016

by Liz Warren

There were 22 sales of homes for November 2016 in the Mt. Hood area. From Government Camp down to Brightwood Oregon sales continue to soar. Record breaking numbers for Mt. Hood sales this year just continues to grow to levels not seen since 2005 and 2006. We don't foresee a slow down for 2017 with continued high demand and minimal supply the area should continue to produce escalating levels of demand. This should cause prices to rise and hopefully we will have a supply to satisfy buyer demand. 

Every pricing point is in a seller's market vs. a buyer's market. Most pricing points have a two month supply which may predict even higher prices coming for 2017!

Log Home on 10 Acres

by Liz Warren

Rarely available ten acres of flat usable land with three bedroom log home with fireplace.  With nearly 1750 square feet of living space, the home has high vaulted ceilings and a floor to ceiling brick fireplace. Open floor plan is great for primary or second home living. Tons of room to roam with 10 acres of land! 

The house needs some updating inside with new carpeting and paint but has good bones. A detached three car garage is perfect for toys or hobbies with tons of room and cement floors. 

The location is close to the Mt. Hood National Forest with hiking and cross country skiing just down the road. Only a 25 minute drive and you are at the first of three premium ski areas on Mt. Hood. Rhododendron is at the foothills of the Cascade mountains with services including shops and restaurants, 27 hole golf course, and  the new Sandy Ridge Mountain Biking park. Its a recreational dream only one hour from Portland. Asking $449,950

Mt. Hood November Real Estate Sales

by Liz Warren

Multiple listing service just came out with sales info for November on the mountain. A shrinking inventory with only 55 total listings on the market shows prices will rise in 2017 unless new inventory comes on the market. 

 The average sales price is inching up. There’s only eight properties currently on the market under $200,000 and half of those are on leased land. Since leased land cabins are cash only that doesn’t leave much inventory for buyers who need to obtain a mortgage for purchase. 

 Twenty one home and cabin sales closed in the Mt. Hood area. Seven of those were Mt Hood National Forest cabins. All were under $200,000 and driving the sub $200,000 market. The balance of sales were scattered through Timberline Rim, some near the Resort at the Mountain and the rest scattered through other mountain neighborhoods. 

 Three lot parcels closed this month. The interest in land and acreage has increased substantially this year as inventory is depleted and many people are realizing the scarcity of Mt. Hood properties will continue with the pressures of the Portland Metro population putting higher demand on vacation homes that are easy to get to. Our Mt. Hood area is very well developed and future growth is restricted by the bordering National Forest and large timber parcels.

It’s the best time to buy while prices are still affordable!

Inspiration For Today

by Liz Warren


"Forgiving those who hurt us is the key to personal peace."
~ G. Weatherly
You've been hearing about this sort of thing on the news lately - people who have suffered a terrible loss at the hands of violent criminals, but still find it in their hearts and minds to forgive those who have trespassed against them. Their interviewers pose questions like, "How in the world can you forgive the man who killed your daughter?" or "How do you find the strength to be pardon someone who has wronged you so horribly?"
These people are often guided by their faith, but they sometimes surprisingly answer that their anger and hatred would simply kill them if they did not find a way to get rid of their negative emotions. Before they find a means of forgiveness, they develop ulcers, grey hair, migraine headaches, digestive disorders, and so on.
These people end up realizing that the only way back to health - both mental and physical - is to come to peace with the tragic events that have affected them. They come to realize that they have no control over these events, and they even discover a way to erase any of their own guilt associated with the events. Anger, accusation, guilt, hatred - we all know the mental toll that these emotions take, but all these emotions eventually manifest themselves physically as well.
Hopefully you haven't experienced the kind of loss that these people have, but you can try to learn their difficult lesson. Let go of negative emotions associated with things that are out of your control. You can find personal peace and well-being in the satisfying feeling of forgiveness. It may not even be a specific person that you are forgiving, but maybe just a set of unhappy circumstances.
Take steps this week to identify something or someone that you feel negatively about. Search your heart and your mind for a way to understand that the longer you feel so badly, the worse it will continue to make you feel. Take back the control you've relinquished to people and circumstances around you. You can rise above the negativity around you and create something positive and inspiring.
