Mt. Hood's New Sandy High School!

by Liz Warren

The excitement is building for the opening of the new Oregon Trail School District High School in Sandy scheduled this coming fall. Anyone who knows a student in this district knows the kids are giddy with excitement for this overdue facility to open which nearly doubles the size of the current high school. After traveling to other schools in the metro area, this showplace will boost local pride and will be a major cornerstone to show off the Mt. Hood area drawing more residents who wish to live in an environment that values education and cares about their children and their future. 

​Check out these Oregon Trail High School highlights including a Performing Arts Center, indoor tract, stadium seating for 1800, fully equipped science labs, plus a new library that is three times the size of the current library!

Mt. Hood Real Estate Sales for January 2012

by Liz Warren

The multiple listing service has just released the year to date chart for Mt. Hood home sales for January 2012. A recent Mt. Hood blog post showed a total of four sales for the month. From this same time last year pending sales are down around 16.7%. Don't be deceived by the average sale price for home sales in the Mt.Hood area, the data makes this an unusually high number in my opinion.

Mt. Hood Real Estate Sales for January 2012

by Liz Warren

January 2012 numbers for the Mt. Hood real estate sales have just come in. After a booming fourth quarter in 2011 it looks like we've dropped down substantially in number of closed sales. The first two listed sales are Mt. Hood foreclosures. The third sale located in Brightwood on the Salmon River closed at $195,000 with an original listed price of $275,000 in 11/2010. This cabin had a premium location with a full view of the river. The last property listed was new construction in Government Camp. Anyone who has tried to obtain a new construction loan knows how difficult that process is to get through. Although marketed as a spec home in Government Camp, this property was custom finished to the buyer's tastes.

The majority of the homes in the $500,000 plus price range in Government Camp are not brand new but 10-20 years old. See the current selection of Government Camp homes for sale. foreclosures make up nearly a third of currently pending sales in the Mt. Hood area. Investors are swooping in to purchase in Government Camp-mostly Collins Lake condos, Welches and Rhododendron.
