Market Activity Jan 18-24, 2021

The real estate market is really heating up. Buyers are out in hordes wanting to take advantage of the lowest interest rates in decades. They have gotten themselves pre-approved and are ready to go. The issue is, inventory is incredibly low. For every property that comes on the market, there are half a dozen buyers ready to buy. The result? Houses are selling fast, often with multiple offers. It is very much a sellers market. With multiple offers houses are frequently selling at or over the list price. So yes, this late winter and spring market truly is an amazing time to sell your house.

In Lake Oswego last week we had 6 properties come onto the market, 12 move into pending status with an accepted offer, and 16 closed sales.

See below for RMLS data and an explanation of this chart.

Bridgeport Village

OK, technically Bridgeport Village is not in Lake Oswego. It is just across the city boundary line in Tigard. But it is one of the great features of living in Lake Oswego. Built in 2006, Bridgeport Village is a lifestyle mall. It is designed to be walked in and enjoyed like a small town. There is plentiful artwork, light displays at night, and a playground in the center.

You will love shopping at Bridgeport Village. There are 24 shops that sell women’s apparel and 13 that sell mens. Some of my favorites include Anthropology, Chico’s, and Coldwater Creek. There are 13 stores that sell home furnishings including Crate and Barrel’s first store in Oregon.

For entertainment there is the Regal Cinemas Bridgeport Village Stadium which has 18 screens plus IMAX. In addition there are 11 restaurants and 4 cafes, making dinner and a movie both convenient and fun. Some of the better known restaurants are California Pizza Kitchen, McCormick and Schmicks Grill, PF Changs, Pastini Pastaria, and Sinju.

The shopping and dining experience at Bridgeport Village is a treat to be enjoyed. From the fresh Italian Gilati on a hot summer’s day to the snow fall that is guaranteed to be happening at Christmas. And it is so close to Lake Oswego that, well, it had might as well be in Lake Oswego.
