Oswego Lake

In the heart of Lake Oswego is Oswego Lake. I decided that today I’d focus on the homes that are actually on the lake. I’m going to share with you a bit of what I have learned over the years.

When I got my real estate license in 1987, one of my very first clients was my former boss, and he bought a home on the lake. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of working with both buyers and sellers who were involved with properties on Oswego Lake. I’ve learned a bit about the types of housing and the various waterfront options.

There are actually 3 different waterfront options. There is the lake itself. Oswego Lake is a natural body of water that was enlarged by development. The most valuable homes are on the lake itself. Then there are 2 “bays”. The bays are extensions of the lake, but not on the lake itself. There is one at the East end of the lake, Lakewood Bay, and one at the West end of the lake, Westbay. The bays have slightly less value than the main lake, but not by much. Then there are the canals. One of the canals is natural and it is where the water comes into the lake from the Tualatin River. There are two more canals, one at Kelok and one at Blue Heron. The canals are the least expensive of the waterfront homes.

I will also mention that on the main lake, the Northside tends to have higher values than the Southside. This is because the sun exposure is better on the Northside, and the sunlight directly benefits the waterfront exposure. There are a couple of streets on the Southside that pretty much don’t get sun exposure at all.

In the last 12 months 47 lake front properties have sold. The least expensive was in the condominiums “Villas on the Lake”. It was 1 bedroom, 1 bath, and 636 square feet. It sold for $215,000. These condominiums share a community dock and several of them have boat slips. The most expensive home that sold on the lake was a 6675 square foot home with 4 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. With a gated entry and 100 feet of lake front, it sold for $6,175,000.

I think that the condominiums are a bit on an annomoly because most of the lake front properties are just so much more expensive. The average sales price is $2,388,000.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this over view. Please let Linda or I know if you have any questions or are interested in learning more.

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!

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,

Dianne

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.

See below for RMLS data.

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 www.lakeoswego.city/ecohomelo 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

Transportation

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,

Dianne

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.
