Government Camp Recent Small Earthquakes

by Liz Warren

This past weekend a series of small earthquakes have been hitting the Government Camp area with up to 30 quakes from a magnitude of .3 to the largest at 2.3 on the Richter scale. Residents have not been able to feel the quakes but scientists are paying attention because this is a new fault that they were not aware of. This fault is now on the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network list of faults to watch. This map is direct from the PNSN website showing the location of the mini-quakes.

If you love the sun and seclusion with the sound of a river in the background and a beautiful territorial view, you will love this home. Very well built modified A-frame with open spaces that are perfect for full time living or a vacation getaway right on the Sandy River. Sunny decks, a garden area, fruit trees and plenty of room to wonder your property. The original A-frame was built in 1966 and an addition added at a later date giving the property over 2,000 square feet of laving space. 

Lots of wood throughout. A huge master bedroom is on the main floor with walk in closet and spacious master bathroom with shower and jetted tub. A cozy loft upstairs for guests with a view to the mountains across the Sandy River. 

The green house will get your plants ready for spring. If you have toys, the four car garage/shop is the perfect hang out for a man cave. 

Amenities abound with the Mt. Hood National Forest down the street, premium ski areas just 25 minutes away, the Sandy Basin Trail for mountain biking a quick ride nearby and the 27 hold golf course at the Resort at the Mountain. With Portland only one hour away, it's tough to beat this recreational paradise. 

New on the market at $369,900!

The RMLS multiple listing service recent published the total sale numbers for February 2014 and they are rolling in at 15! Considering it's winter time with a mix of crazy freezing weather and recent monsoons, 15 sales is exceptional for this time of year. Pending sales are up 400% compared to February 2013. This should be a great year for mountain sales if we maintain this pace.

Flood Insuarnce Update

by Liz Warren

The house just voted on a bill 306-91 to approve the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act with amendments.

The bill would repeal FEMA's ability to raise rates and use new flood maps. It will also cap rates at a max 18% per year. Refunds would be given to flood insurers who were unaware of the new increases without warning. The Senate must pass the amendment before the bill would become law. 

Read the Homeowner's Flood Insurance Affordability Act Fact Sheet from NAR This will get you up to speed on what this act means to anyone in a flood area.
