Mt. Hood "Hidaway Inn" 1935 Cabin New on the Market

by Liz Warren

This charming cabin built in 1935 was called the Hidaway Inn by the original owners. Hand built about 80 years ago the cabin has wood floors, log beams in the living room a bedroom on the main level and a sleeping loft upstairs. The fireplace was made from stones brought down from Mt. Hood. Skylights bring lots of light into the main living area. The bathroom has been remodeled and has a washer and dryer too. A huge garage and shop are also on the property which is nearly a half acre. The current owner's son, a stone mason built the patio off the back with stone benches and circular bricks. The seller has a nice garden in the back yard. 

This would make a great home for a couple or a vacation home close to all Mt. Hood activities. It's not that far from the Salmon River and a quick drive up the mountain for skiing.

February 2016 Sales on Mt. Hood

by Liz Warren


February saw eight closed sales  for 2016. Two mobile homes at Mt. Hood RV Village, two Government Camp condos at Collins Lake and one Shadow Hawk Condo in Welches rounded out the month. Twenty six sales are pending so I suspect the numbers to increase substantially for March and April. Spring is in the air and sellers are tidying up their properties to bring to market. All indicators are pointing to  a busy year for the Mt. Hood market. 

Real Estate Sales on Mt. Hood for February 2016

February Market Stats from RMLS o the Mt. Hood Area

by Liz Warren

Here are the numbers for February 2016 sales and listings recently released from RMLS. Inventory increased by 23 properties for the month and pending sales were up a whopping 77.8% compared to the same time in 2015. This shows buyers are out early this year with minimal properties available and increased demand. The market time is reduced for this past month down to 73 days. Since the start of the year pending sales are up 45% from last year. Homes under $250,000 are seeing bidding wars.

One challenge for today's conventional home sales are getting appraisers to come to our area. Since we are not a cookie cutter community of homes many appraisers find the mountain more work, charge higher fees, and some turn down the jobs completely delaying the process. Getting to the thick of spring and summer hopefully will not delay our closings because of this but it potentially could.
