Happy New Year From Mt. Hood!

Happy New Year from Mt. Hood

Mt. Hood Land Swap

by Liz Warren

The "Mt. Hood Cooper Spur Land Exchange Clarification Act"is heading to Trump's desk to get signed into law. It's been a long time coming and was actually originally passed in 2009  as part of a wilderness designation. It was to be implemented within 16 months of passage by the Forest Service but so many delays, including a law suit against the forest service, as pushed this out for many years. 

This bill was written to protect land conservation and recreation in the Mt. Hood National Forest. The trade is for property in the Cooper Spur ski area swapped for  around 100 acres of land near Government Camp.  Here's the approximate location for the swap near Government Camp.

More information can be found about the swap in this Hood River News article. 

Environmental Impact Statement

This could bode well for future development areas in Government Camp which is lacking in further land available for building homes and condos. Skiers will relish having more choices in the future and perhaps more affordable options down the road.

November Real Estate Sales for Mt. Hood area in 2017

by Liz Warren

Mt. Hood sale numbers have surged this year and the minimal inventory has caused prices to continue to climb. As seen with this November 2017 report from multiple listing, compared to 2016 our prices have climbed nearly 19% over last year. The average sales price has bumped up to $309,400!

Oregon seems to be fairing very well in the scheme of things. Take a look at this map showing price appreciation of the whole state over the past year compared to the rest of the country. There's nearly a 9% difference from last year!

Here's another interesting map of home affordability, or should I say unaffordable as compared  to late 1990's. Oregon ranks right up there with California, Hawaii, and Washington DC. This shows how much Oregon's prices have gone up recently. It actually shows that the state was probably at dirt cheap prices in late 1990 but we've really escalated over the past two decades!

Mt. Hood Foxglove One Most Interesting Hole

by Liz Warren
The Oregon Golf Association recently added the Foxglove fairway hole number one as one of the most interesting holes of Oregon gold courses. The course, located in Welches at the Resort at the Mountain, is one of three including Pinecone and Thistle.
The tee box sits facing West with the scenic Salmon River which wraps around on the left of the fairway, a steep hill on the right, and smack dab in the middle a monolithic boulder spit from Mt. Hood's eruption in the late 1700's. It's always a challenge for golfers to get over it, let alone around it!
The Mountain View Golf Course just down the road in Boring also  made the list with hole number twelve, a par three, shooting high above a majorly steep canyon to the green below. 
I particularly enjoy a drink and a bite after golfing at Mountain View at the Leaderboard Restaurant where you can sit out side and take in a picture perfect view of Mt. Hood while watching golfers teeing off on the first hole. 
Speaking of golf courses, if you are looking for a home or Condo around the Resort at the Mountain, here is the place to find one:
