There is no guarantee of safety when you are dealing with Mother Nature!  Look closely at the deep crevices in the sand, this cliff could fall without warning. I expect that this section of cliff may be gone the next time I visit this listing which is located just north of Newport, Oregon... Wat...
I received this email from a Newport, Oregon lender I work with. He wants agents he works with to write in a 45 day close on every transaction. He has given me permission to post it because he wants to get the word out to everybody in the hopes that it will make his life less stressful! Here it i...

If you are sti...

When the weather looks like this in the dead of winter, it is time to dust off the boat and take her out for a spin. This photo was shot at the Toledo boat launch, located a short drive from the restaurants on historic Main Street.  Boaters in the know will come here and have breakfast, then lau...
This may not look like much of an issue, but left unchecked, can become a delay which can cause a buyer to lose a loan lock if not taken care of before the bank loan underwriting department demands that it be fiixed before closing. If the buyer does not ask that it be repaired before releasing c...
Today I bring to you a photo of a sunny winter day in Lincoln City, Oregon.
