Lake Oswego is getting an Aquatics Center!

In all of the years that I have been writing this blog, I’ve had a dirty little secret. I’ve been driving into Portland to the SW Community Center at Gabriel Park to swim. I don’t swim daily, or even monthly, but when I am in the swimming mood, I love it. I was an aqua-aerobics instructor for about 8 years and I once taught swimming to small children. So being in a pool is something that I really enjoy.

When I moved to Lake Oswego in 1998 I tried to use the pool at Lake Oswego High School. I really did try. But the pool is old and dingy. There is not enough chlorine in the world to make the water look inviting. It’s also just a lap pool, built to benefit the school’s swim team. This also meant that the public use hours were very limited.

The new pool will be part of a large (60,000 square feet) aquatics and recreation facility. It will be located adjacent the the Municipal Golf Course at the corner of Overlook and Stafford Roads. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2022.

Amenities will include:

  • A competition pool with spectator seating for 300 people
  • A lap pool
  • A recreation pool
  • A spa
  • A basketball court
  • A weight room with cardio equipment
  • 2 multi-purpose rooms for classes and group excercise
  • Locker rooms

Yep, I’m pretty stoked. The one thing that this town has been missing is being rectified and I am really excited. See you at the pool!

News & Notes ~ August Numbers 2021

Here is the latest look at the overall Portland area and how Lake Oswego fits into that picture. Don’t miss the Portland Neighborhood Report (below) with values, time on market and appreciation rates broken out for our Property Blotter readers.

Overview/Fluctuations ~  Market Data Aug 2021:                                                                                            August is never a robust month in Portland, but things are moving right along. With the exception of some slight shuffling, we saw a pretty “no-drama” month in terms of pricing stability and sales compared to July. Market time remains only slightly different than July, at 23 days compared to July’s 20 days overall. New Listings dropped off for a bit as we’d expect, and Inventory rose slightly to a whopping 1-month’s supply (just a tad under last August).

Rates are hanging right at 3.0% as of today, but there is pressure on rates to move higher.

According to the RMLS Market Action Report  for the Portland Metro Area, Aug 2021:

  • There were 3,698 New Listings in Aug 2021 dropping 4.8% from Aug 2020’s 3,885 and 13.3% from the previous month/July’s 4,267.
  • At 3,219, Aug 2021’s Closed Sales are up 2.2% from Aug 2020’s 3,149, and fell 6.4% from the previous month/July’s total of 3,439.
  • At 3,535, Aug 2021’s Pending Sales decreased 4.4% from Aug 2020’s 3,697, and are also up 5.4% from the previous month/July’s total of 3,354.
  • The Average Sale Price in Aug 2021 of $583,600 is up $72,600 from last year/Aug 2020’s $511,000, and down $9,500. from the previous month/July’s $593,100.   
  • The “Median” Sale Price (the price smack dab in the middle of all sales) in Aug 2021 of $525,000 rose $76,000 from last year/Aug 2020’s $449,000, and also increased $3,000 from the previous month/July’s $522,000.


  • 161 Active Listings (July 165)
  • 168 New Listings    (July 214)
  • 163 Pending Sales (July 177)
  • 171 Closed Sales    (July 184)
  • Average Sale Price for July: $878,000 (July $1,020,600)
    • NOTE: Higher-Priced vs Lower-Priced Homes Sales can skew the “Average” in any given month.  Lake Oswego has quite a variety, so this tends to be a less meaningful stat, generally speaking, in this niche.
  •  23 Average Days on the Market   (July 19)

What’s in a Name?

A bit of trivia about the Property Blotter. Linda and I started our blog many years ago. Blogging was new to real estate and we had the good fortune of working with someone who was in the know about how to do it. Ron Ares, the son of our principal broker was a new agent who was interviewed by the New York Times because of the blog he had for Portland real estate. I was like “What?!” At that point I had a couple of decades in the business and realized that the power of the blog was pretty incredible for the recognition that Ron got as a result of his efforts. So Linda and I were on board.

Then it was time to choose a name. We knew we wanted to have a name that was uniquely LO. We brainstormed lots of options and came up with the Property Blotter. The name comes from the Police Blotter that was published weekly in the Lake Oswego Review. The Lake Oswego Police have 100% response policy. If you call them, they show up. The police calls are then reported in the local newspaper. What they respond to can be pretty funny. So the local blotter has been a source of local entertainment for many years.

Here is a sampling of what was reported in the August 12th edition of the LO Review:

7/31 9:43 A.M.

A dead squirrel was seen near the 18400 block of Deerbrush Avenue

7/31 12:54 P.M.

A man was seen laying sideways on a step near Boones Ferry Road and Kruse Way Place

7/31 1:19 P.M.

A caller believed someone was selling dogs our of cages in a truck near the 40 block of McNary Parkway. It turned out to be a part of an adoption program.

7/31 9:34 P.M.

Someone was seen walking in the middle of the street near SW Lesser Road and Jefferson Parkway

8/1 7:00 P. M.

A resident said she was being followed by two people at a store near the 90 block of B Avenue. Police made sure she got home safely. (I love this one. Who doesn’t want a police escort if you feel unsafe?)

8/2 12:55 A.M.

Intermittent “constuction-type noises” were heard near the 1000 block of Westward Ho Road

As you can see, it can be amusing. There is actually a book that was written about the blotter. It’s a good read that I highly recommend.

I feel very fortunate to live in a community with relatively low crime and whose police department is 100% there to serve and protect. It’s one of the many things I value in my community.

My best to you,


Market Activity August 30-September 5, 2021

This is the time of year, as school starts, when the market typically starts to let off the gas a bit. I just don’t see that happening. Last week in LO we had 10 new listings, 32 properties (!) move into pending status, and 32 closed/sold. We are winding down the summer in an all steam ahead fashion.

History of Labor Day

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894 under President Grover Cleveland.

Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader and Matthew Maguire were the two who who came up with the idea for Labor Day. They thought American workers should be honored with their own day. Peter was the vice president of the American Federation of Labor and Matthew was secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. Some stories say these men with similar last names were actually brothers. In any case, they chose a date midway between the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving. The weather would be ideal for parades and picnics, two events we still enjoy on Labor Day today. They proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too. This holiday was in response to a series of worker strikes in the late 19th century as workers protested against unfair working conditions.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.

EcoHome LO

The City of Lake Oswego is starting a brand new program to help residents learn to live a more sustainable life by reducing their carbon footprint, engaging as good citizens, and recycling. At you can sign up to partcipate and learn details of the program.

The program is administered on line. You’ll find check lists that address:

Reduce Reuse and Recycle

Energy Conservation

Water Conservation


Social Equity

Ecological Conservation

Civic Engagement

Emergency Preparedness

Construction & Renovation

Apartments and Rental Housing

& Encouraging Others to Participate

Upon accomplishng a preset number of goals, the house will be awarded a lawn sign that states that it is an EcoHome.

I suspect that we will start to see these signs popping up in our neighborhoods, and now you know what they are all about. I also think it’s a terrific program because of what it encourages, but also because it is so comprehensive.

As always, thanks for reading the blotter,


Market Activity August 16-22, 2021

It is certainly feeling like the dog days of summer. Numbers in Lake Oswego were down last week. Still healthy, but not quite as frantic as it was just a couple of weeks ago. We had 12 houses come onto the market, 26 move into pending status, and 16 closed/sold properties.

See below for RMLS details.
