Everyone keeps saying how the market is great and it's time to sell. Wondering WHY though?   There are TWO main reasons #1-Inventory levelsThere is a very limited amount of inventory in the Portland Metro Area. As a general rule of thumb, anything under 4 is considered a "seller's market" and anything above 6 is considered a "buyer's market".  4-6 is considered a "normal market".  This number simply means how many months it would take to run out of homes for sale if no new homes were listed.         #2-Interest Rates Interest rates have been at historically low levels for a few months now. When rates are lower, the buyer can actually afford more house. So they can spend more for your house now vs when rates are higher.   What this means Simply put, low inventory levels means LOW competi...

Perfect Trifecta:  Nat'l Cookie Day, Fred Armisen & Comedians in Cars Dear Diary: Today is December 4 in The Year of Our Lord 2014.   My head hurts with all the excitement going on today. First, it's National Cookie Day!  My teeth actually started to hurt just thinking about this! I just did a GOOGLE right now and accidentially typed: National COOTIE Day Maybe we should have one of them too!?! Second, the latest episode of Comedian in Cars Getting Coffee is out!  And it's with Portlandia's pride and joy . . . that little cutie Fred Armisen.   I wrote a blog about Fred in June 2011.  He never even acknowledged my existance, let alone bought a house through me!   I'm ever so slighted.  Why can Portland's real estate super star, Peggy Hoag, hang out with the former first lady of Oregon, Sh...

answer: Nansen Summit   If you're looking for one of the best views in Portland you must venture out to this high point in Lake Oswego Weather and climate information is very important to Portlandia because it changes so quickly PLUS many of us like to be outside enjoying all the outdoor activities. The key to success with this is to be prepared for what's on the horizon. If you don't own one of the scenic homes on Nansen Summit and able to watch the weather roll in maybe the renowned climate station can help. The sophisticated weather equipment at Nansen Summit is atop Mount Sylvania   The summit elevation was created by a volcano a very long time ago. Consider this...water runs from way up here all the way to the Pacific Ocean via Tryon Creek watershed running into the Willamette Rive...

Filling Up With FUEL New Jersey and Oregon do not allow people to pump their own gas. These states will ticket people that break the law and I have heard that fines can be $1,000. I suppose you should just relax and let the professionals do it. Back in 1951 the law was passed restricting people from pumping fuel at service stations. Historically all gas stations were full service and California was one of the pioneer states that opened self serve gas stations in 1947. This became popular across the country except in Oregon and New Jersey where claims are that it's safer and jobs are created with the gas pumping law. New Jersey passed the law in 1949 because pumping gas is dangerous. in the interest in public safety. Motorcyclists have been able to pump their own fuel since new law was p...
