I can't remember when we have had such a great selection of log homes for sale in the Mt. Hood area. From fixer-uppers to grand log lodges, there is a fantastic selection. The pricing points are from $129,000 to nearly a million. If there ever was a perfect time to pick a log home for purchase, this is it!

Monday Morning Coffee: Inspiration For Today

by Liz Warren


"It's OK to build castles in the air . . .
so long as you build a firm foundation under them."

~ Henry David Thoreau


Ever dream of becoming a U.S. Senator? Want to become an anonymous benefactor of youth programs in your community? Want to rise to the top 1% of your profession? Inspirational artist D. Morgan puts it this way: "The impossible dream . . . isn't!"

So - how do dreams become reality? Once your dream becomes your passion, you can begin building the foundation that will support the eventual structure of your dream. Begin by reading and studying how others have achieved similar dreams.

For politicians-to-be, there are plenty of biographies that reveal the long road to election. For those who aspire to achieve peak earnings, mentors are plentiful. Hang out with, attend courses with, and "shadow" the real stars in your chosen field. Ask how they began their rise, how they blend their work and family, how they attract and retain clients and customers.

In most cases, you will find that the models you choose have also made hard choices. They have first adopted certain principles upon which their decisions are made. Their actions are congruent with those principles. They are not duplicitous in their dealings with others. Their "word is their bond." Their foundational character sets the tone for the structure of their dreams.

Finally, with the foundation in place - they just build. They create plans, they implement strategies to achieve those plans. They understand that their final success does not occur in one fell swoop. It is the result of many footsteps in the direction of their dreams.

So . . . go ahead and dream! Remember - destiny is not a matter of chance . . . it's a matter of choice!

Ever dream of living in a log home? This charming log home sits in a peaceful, quiet location in Sandy on 3.29 creekfront acres. It's a highly desireable neighborhood that is close in yet a country feel. The setting is parklike with a huge lawn area and lots of trees with a short path down to the year round "kid friendly" creek. Four spacious bedrooms gives plenty of room to spread out. The covered porch entry is charming. High vaulted ceilings and a brand new skylight make the living room a favorite place to lounge. Hardwood floors and a gourmet kitchen that's open to the dining room area make this a great place for entertaining or just visiting with friends and family as you make some homecooked meals.

There's lots to do at this property! Send the kids out to play on the lawn, have tea parties in the playhouse, climb trees or explore the woods by the creek. This is a paradise for youngsters! The home is located at the beginning of a dead end paved road with little traffic....another great benefit of this location.

If you like to build or have hobbies, you are going to love the shop area in the bottom level of the home. Cement floor with tons of room to work

Take a tour of this home to see all of the amenities it has to offer:

Newer Log Home On Acreage Hits Market

by Liz Warren

Hit the brakes! This is a great property on 4.77 acres of land near Sandy. It's close to town but has a very private setting. There's over 3700 square feet of living space. Wood from floors to ceilings and radient heat make this a warm and cozy home. There is a river rock propane fireplace in the living room and master bedroom.

I love the gourmet kitchen with skylights, island, and tons of cabinets. A breakfast bar is handy too. There is a convection over, electric overnand a gas stove for cooking.

The home has an attached oversized two car garage, a handy laundry room, huge deck off living room for outside barbeques. The main level bathroom boasts a clawfoot tub and pedistal sink. All bedrooms are on the main floor.

A sturdy steel shop which is 20 X 40 has a concrete floor. This would park your RV or boat.

The sellers enjoy a garden area, fruit trees and tons of berries!

What kind of a Market does the Mountain have?

by Liz Warren

There's a lot of talk of doom and gloom out in the media of massive foreclosure rates, mortgage fraud, over saturated markets and other issues.. Recently the National Association of Reatlors is seeing stabilization in the national market with some areas still trying to absorb the excess inventory.  Let's face it, real estate is a "local" market and can't be dictated by sweeping "national trends". Take a look at current statistics for area "153" the mountain market straight from the Multiple Listing Service. This area serves statistics  from Cherryville Hill (half way between Brightwood and Sandy) to Government Camp.

The market has a general two month supply of homes. Naturally, many sellers take their homes off the market in winter thinking there are few buyers but recent listings with multiple offer situations prove that there are many active buyers waiting for any new listing to hit the market. Rates are fantastic and with predictions of nearly 7% fixed rates by the end of 2007, NOW is a GREAT time to BUY or SELL!
