Featured Neighborhood: Uplands

Lake Oswego has 24 distinct neighborhoods, each with its own characteristics and features. Today I am going to focus on Uplands.

Uplands is centrally located and very close to Lake Oswego High School and Lake Oswego Junior High School. It is South of Country Club Rd, North of Iron Mt. Blvd., West of Lake Oswego Country Club, and East of Boones Ferry Rd.

I think its most distinguishing characteristic is that it is quiet and wooded. There really are no busy streets in this area with traffic consisting primarily of people who live in the area. There are two nature parks: Springbrook and the Iron Mt. Natural area. There is also a little park, probably the smallest in the city: Prestwick Park. Springbrook Park has a wonderful trail system that is enjoyed regularly by locals. It is 52 acres and full of Big Leaf Maples.

The housing is diverse. It is an established area with many homes dating from the 1950’s and 1960’s. The location and the large lots really appeal to buyers and over the years many of the small homes have been enlarged or torn down and had new homes built. This creates a mixture of old and new, large and small.

There are currently 11 homes for sale in the neighborhood. The least expensive is 2039 square feet, built in 1995 on a very small lot (unusual for the area). It has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a 2-car garage, and is priced at $339,000. The most expensive home for sale was built in 2009. It is on nearly half an acre and has 6490 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 half baths. There is a 3-car garage and it is priced at $1,895,000.

Also located in Uplands is the City’s Indoor Tennis Center. With our cold and wet winters, this is a real feature. There are 4 indoor courts that can each be rented for $16 an hour. The center has a wide variety of competitive and social events that include a City Tennis League, USTA League, group mixers, Tiny Tot Tennis, and more.

This neighborhood, while it feels like it is isolated, is actually very close to pretty much any part of town you want to go to. From Uplands you are just minutes to both downtown Lake Oswego and to Lake Grove. It has quick access to Hwy 217 and I 5. It also is pretty close to the lake and many of the homes have boating easements.

So when looking for a home in Lake Oswego, be sure to consider the Uplands neighborhood. And please let Linda or I know if you would like more information.

Showing Tips

So you’ve put your house on the market and are planning to jump on the spring bandwagon and take advantage of the thawing market. Let’s talk about how best to show your home & what your options are.

You’ll be talking with your agent about the listing’s “Showing Instructions”. You have several options including “Call 1st”, “Call Agent”, “Call Owner” and “Appointment Only” among others. My recommendation to my clients is to veer toward the “Call 1st” option if at all possible. My reason for this is that you want to remove as many barriers as possible to getting a potential Buyer into your home. While there is often very reasonable rationale for choosing others of those options, the one that makes it easiest for your potential Buyer is “Call 1st”. This Showing Instruction lets the Buyer’s agent know that he or she may call your number, and if no one answers, leave a message with the approximate time of the desired showing and the request for a call back that if that time will NOT work for you. This makes it very easy for the Buyer’s agent and the Buyer…. and that’s what you want! It also gives you the opportunity to say “No… 2PM this afternoon would work better for me.”

Now let’s talk about how you leave your home when you have a showing. Obviously you want your home to he “the one” for the Buyers looking it over. I know you’ve heard all the admonitions before about making things neutral so that Buyers can picture themselves and their “stuff” there; taking down family photos/neutral wall colors/cleared counter-tops etc. I also want you to consider those things that are probably invisible to you as a homeowner… Pretend you have never been in your home before, and walk in the front door. Is the entry open with a clear view to the rest of the home? Is the porch littered with shoes or other “normal” things like miscellaneous gardening objects (trowels, gloves…), dead potted plants, etc? Are your toothbrushes in cups on the counter for visitors to admire? Dentures in a glass? Are your medications out on the counter in the bathroom or your vitamins out on the kitchen counter?? Is there a stinky kitchen sponge decorating your sink? Are those pesky box beetles trying valiantly to get in under your back door & warm up a little? (PLEASE call Orkin…) How about your mud room… is it muddy? If so… transform it into a showplace for cleanliness w/ hooks for clothing & bench-seats for cleaning up…. but leave the mud for peoples’ imaginations. The whole thing is about creating ambiance. I’ll say it: “The way you live in a house is not the way you ‘sell” a house.” Just do a little “I’ve never been here before” exploring around your home… it will probably amaze you!

How to make it all easier?
There are professional organizers who can come in and help you with streamlining your home. I’ve used this method with clients, especially busy ones. It lifts a huge weight off a Seller’s shoulders during the process of sorting and deciding what is staying and what is going into storage during the sale period or to Goodwill.

Once that phase of preparation is complete, I suggest hiring a professional cleaning company to come in and do a once-over on your home. It is more of what we discussed above; things you don’t tend to notice as you live in the house. After this, attempt to keep things the way they are… hopefully streamlined and clean. Then just keep a bottle of window cleaner handy and go through the house lightly touching all the sinks’ hardware so it shines before you leave. Once the initial work is done in preparing your home for sale, maintenance is key, and not as hard as you think.

My main message here? You’ve heard all of the obvious advice on staging, colors etc. Remember to look at the little things. They make a big difference!
