Tree Lighting Ceremony

Here in Lake Oswego, the annual Christmas Tree Lighting is quite the celebration. This year it is happening on November 25th from 3:00-8:00. This is the 58th year that this even has taken place.

The event takes place at Millennium Plaza Park, 200 1st Street in downtown LO.

Starting at 3:00 vendors will be set up to sell holiday crafts and foods, there will be visits with Olaf and Cham-bear, as well as an ice-carving demonstration. Escorted by the LO Fire Department, Santa will arrive at 5pm and be available for photos until 8:00. The LO Police Department will be on hand to help children write letters to Santa. They will also have a mailbox set up to mail the letters. The tree lighting is scheduled for 6pm.

All in all, it will be a great way to kick off the season. For all of the details on this event, click here.

Holiday Decorations and Selling Your House

Do holiday decorations help or hurt the marketing of your house? I have some thoughts on this that I am eager to share.

I do think that holiday decorations enhance the showing of your house to potential buyers. Taking the time to decorate helps the potential buyer feel that you love and appreciate your home. It also creates a cozy environment as we experience shorter daylight hours and colder temperatures.

I don’t think that it helps with your marketing. By marketing I mean the photos that will appear on the Internet, in the Multiple Listing Service, and on fliers and in emails. The photos need to be timeless. You simply don’t know how long it will take to sell your house. Today, if on-line the photos are full of witches and ghosts, it immediately conveys to the public that you’ve had your house on the market since before Halloween. November 25th you don’t want the photos to be full of turkeys and cornucopias. So, have the professional photography done before you put up holiday decorations.

For the same reason, take down the holiday decorations in a timely fashion. Enjoying them for a week or so after the holiday is fine, but beyond that, take them down.

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

Market Activity October 10-16, 2022

The last day of summer was yesterday. We have been enjoying temperatures in the 80’s all the way into mid October, but today that changes. High’s in the 50’s and rain in the foreseeable future.

With the arrival of fall, our market remains balanced but starting to slow down. In Lake Oswego last week we had 8 new listings, 4 of which sold quickly and appear in this report as pending sales. 15 properties went pending and 14 transactions sold/closed.

Open House Sat & Sun, Oct 1 & 2, noon-3:00

I am thrilled to introduce you to my new listing at 4704 Cambridge Ct in the West Lake neighborhood of Lake Oswego.

With the primary bedroom on the main level, it is a wonderful floorplan with a huge kitchen that is open to the family room. The Southern side consists of walls of windows that allow you to enjoy expansive Southern views of the greenspace behind and also across the West Lake neighborhood.

There are 3 large bedrooms plus a bonus room. In addition to the great room, there is a formal living room and formal dining. The primary suite has a fireplace and a huge bathroom with double sinks, a jetted tub, and a custom walk-in shower. There is also a huge walk-in closet.

As part of the Devonshire Home Owner’s Association, the exterior maintenance and landscaping is maintained by the HOA for easy-care living.

Priced at $985,000, it is an opportunity to own a newer home in Lake Oswego with a primary bedroom on the main.

I will be holding it open this Saturday and Sunday from noon to 3pm. Please park on Peter’s Rd.

I’m looking forward to seeing you!

Dianne
