Market Activity ~ Sept 28-Oct 4, 2020

Last week in Lake Oswego we saw 16 New Properties come on the market, 22 move to Pending status, and 28 Closed Transactions. There are currently 170 properties to choose from in Lake Oswego!

NEW Sept 28- Oct 4, 2020

PENDING Sept 28-Oct 4, 2020

SOLD Sept 28-Oct 4, 2020

Featured Property: 45 Eagle Crest #212

I am super excited to tell you about this wonderful condo in the Eagles Crest Condominiums. It is 780 square feet with 1 bedroom and 1 bath. It has a 26 foot deck for outdoor entertainment and relaxation. OK, those are the basics, but there are two features that make this property a stand out.

First, it has sweeping Easterly views. You look out across the metro area to the East where you can see the Willamette River and twinkling lights of the city. The owner will get to wake to sunrises and have serenity of the sky from the main rooms of the home.

Second, this Home Owner’s Association is pretty great. I’ve sold lots and lots of condos. It just isn’t very often that an HOA impresses me. This one impresses me because with all of the features it offers, the monthly fee is relatively low. For $333 a month you get a pool, sauna, party room, game room, exercise room, sauna, on-sight management, water, sewer and garbage. Then, and this is unusual, the HOA owns half a dozen guest suites. They are basically hotel rooms that you can rent if you have house guests. The rent is $50 for the first night and $20 for each subsequent night. That is a deal! Suddenly the one bedroom condo is bigger than 780 square feet.

This sweet condo is priced at just $189,900. The price makes it ideal as an investment (there is no rental cap), or for someone wanting to live in LO for under $200,000. It’s also ideal for an older person who needs easy living with no stairs. Entry into the building is on the same level as the condo. So for basic coming and going there are zero stairs. But if you do need to go downstairs to get your mail or to retrieve something from your storage unit, there is an elevator.

Please give me a call if you have any questions. I’d love to show it to you. -Dianne, 503-803-6298.

8 Ways to Make a House Feel Larger

I think it is pretty well understood that proper staging of a house will help it to sell both more quickly and also at a higher price. One of the key elements in good staging is to make the rooms in the house feel as large as possible. In some houses this is easy because they already have large rooms. In other houses it needs to be enhanced and here are a few tips to help get this accomplished.

1. Think vertical. Decorating elements that draw the eye up to the ceiling will help the room feel taller. This can be done with a book shelf that goes all the way to the ceiling or a pendant light fixture that hangs down from the ceiling.

2. Use furniture that you can see under or through. Sofas and chairs with legs rather than skirts allows the eye to see under and beyond them. A glass coffee table or dining table also accomplishes this.

3. White walls and trim lightens the room and gives a sense of soaring, bright space.

4. Go with a few big accents as opposed to a bunch of little ones. A big piece of art or a single large chair has more impact than a bunch of little stuff that makes a room feel cluttered and cramped.

5. Get away from the wall. Pull furniture way from the wall and into the room to create conversation areas. When a sofa is pushed up against a wall, it drawers your eye to the wall, which brings the walls forward and makes the room feel smaller.

6. Simplify the color scheme. When walls and furniture are complimentary shades of the same color scheme it makes the room feel unified and more spacious. A bunch of different colors draws the eye to each individual object as opposed to a unified and uncomplicated space.

7. Don’t hang curtains. Curtains obstruct views to the outside and block natural light.

8. Bring the outside in. See #7 above, but also consider having a few house plants and decorating with natural objects and fibers. This helps to bring the outdoors inside to combine the space and enlarge the feeling of living area.

One of the services that Linda and I provide is that we go through a house with the homeowner before it is listed for sale. Visiting each room, we advise what to do to get that room ready so that it will show at its very best. Please don’t hesitate to give one of us a call if you are wanting to get your house ready to sell.

I hope you have found this information helpful. As always, thanks for reading the blotter.

Market Activity Sept 7-13, 2020

The Portland Metro area has been all over the National news this past week due to the intense smokey conditions from the surrounding wildfires. I am happy to say that heavy rain yesterday has cleared the air and we are enjoying bright blue skies. Hallelujah!

Despite the smoke, last week was another busy time for Lake Oswego real estate with 16 new listings, 28 pending sales, and 25 closed sales.

Lake Oswego and the Clackamas County Fires

Pardon me for this brief post. We’re all very busy with real estate amidst the wildfire situations that are hopefully subsiding. Our beloved Lake Oswego was poised to be on alert, but has now been taken off that alert status.  All of us are balancing normal lives with this additional set of circumstances.  You can set yourself up to receive alerts at this link: CLICK HERE

For now we all are thinking of our friends and loved ones in less protected areas who have needed to evacuate.  We’re grateful to only be dealing with the smoke and know that our blue skies are slated to return this week with some much anticipated rain.
