Monday Morning Inspiration

by Liz Warren

Hit the coffee below for some Mt. Hood inspiration for the day.

It's a dream come true. Secluded setting on Salmon Riverfront acreage with a custom built house. Cedar siding with a wall of windows facing the river, hardwood floors and a floor to ceiling fireplace. Open floor plan that is perfect for entertaining and plenty of square feet to sleep your family and friends. Gourmet kitchen to cook up the big meals including granite counter tops, tile, gas stove top and stainless steel appliances. Master bedroom on the main level with French doors to step outside and enjoy the river. After entering a private gated road and crossing two branches of Boulder Creek in Brightwood, you'll come to this secluded location off Twin Bridges Road to your little piece of paradise.

The Big Bonus for this location is that it borders a 100 plus acre BLM park with trails for hiking, play area for kids, ball fields and volleyball too! Who wouldn't want a BLM park in their backyard? Only 25 minutes to premium ski slopes and the Mt. Hood National Forest surrounds the area for tons of hiking trails throughout the forest.

Only one hour to your Mt. Hood Cascade paradise. A quick drive to the airport too.

Inventory soared with 33 new properties for the Mt. Hood market this June! Pending sales are up 83% over June's 2012 sales. And total pending sales are up about 6% from last year at this time. What a difference an upturn makes. Not a large number of sales closed though with five total.

<$200,000   35 Sales

$200,000-$300,000  14 sales

RMLS chart for June 2013

Mountain Closings Down for June 2013!

by Liz Warren

It came as a complete surprise when June 2013 sales info came out this week. Only five properties went to closing for the month according to RMLS statistics. July numbers will certainly make up for the slow down with 25 sales currently pending. The jump in interest rates slowed applications for mortgages according to lenders but I wouldn't exactly say that is reflected in our current pending sales information. We expect the surge in inventory to keep prices very affordable as many second home sellers have been waiting for an improving market.

Government Camp: Little Log Cabin New on Market

by Liz Warren

It's an often sought price range for Government Camp and this little log cabin is a gem that sits off of Camp Creek Trail and boarders the Mt. Hood National Forest. Originally built in the 1930's it is a short distance from downtown Govy yet a nice location to getaway from the buzz of downtown. Family owned for a log time too. Metal roof for easy snow load off the roof too. Just the basics at the cabin with a living room, kitchen, bedroom on the main level and a ladder to get upstairs to a double loft. Warm your toes in front of the fireplace. Pull up a log stool for the pancakes coming off the stove. Sit on your deck and enjoy the trickling river outside. Pick huckleberries in the Mt. Hood National Forest out your back door.

Offered at $235.000. Government Camp Log Cabin

Government Camp Fire Station New in 2014

by Liz Warren

Government Camp is slated for a new fire station in 2014 according to Dave Queener Senior Project Manager at Clackamas County. This will help lower rates and make emergency fires receive a quicker response time.  Construction could begin as early as spring next year. Chief Mik Eby of the Hoodland Fire District is hoping it would be operational by fall 2014. The land will be leased from the USFS for 99 years at a cost of $1.00
