THE ASTORIA BICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION Did you know that: Astoria, Oregon was established in 1811 by the John Jacob Astor fur trading party, and became the first permanent U.S. settlement west of the Rocky Mountains. City leaders began planning for a huge 200th. birthday celebration as early as 2008. Committees have been actively planning for the event, which will include many educational & community-wide events of interest to the entire family. A permanent exhibit at the Heritage Museum will enlighten us on the founding of Astoria, John Jacob Astor & the race for the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Like many (0 comments)
NAR Benefits - Did Ya Know? - 11/30/09 05:48 PM
I typically spend this time of year reviewing, reading, pondering & setting goals for the New Year. To that point, I perused the NAR website for the first time in a long, long time. It dawned on me that they have so very many resources available to us as real estate agents. One particularly noteworthy addition is that of a new website called: House Logic which is available at: www.houselogic.com This wonderful resource offers tons of informative articles on everything from the value of adding a deck to your home to energy efficiency. Tabs include topics on improvement, maintenance, engaging, taxes (2 comments)
The beautiful North Oregon Coast is more than just a day at the beach! Clam digging for the highly coveted razor clam or crabbing for the ever popular Dungeness crab are but a few of the coastal pastimes that this area has to offer. These hobbies have been enjoyed for generations by people of all ages. To that point, I thought that I'd publish the tide guide for the remaining portion of the year. Additionally, I've included a few helpful links includding one to the Oregon Dept. of Fish & Wildlife. November - Seaside, 12th Avenue bridge, Necanicum River Date Day Time Height (0 comments)
I have the pleasure of living near the quaint Gearhart Elementary School located in the small berg of Gearhart, OR. This great little school happens to be rated exceptional by the State of Oregon. Additionally, GreatSchools.net rates GES with a rating of 8 out of 10. It's my understanding that very few Oregon public schools receive the distinguished rating of an 8!
This school is beloved by many as the student to teacher ratio is 16 children to every teacher, making it a sought after school by local parents. Currently 280 students are enrolled in the K-5th. grade school where there are (2 comments)
As you can see, upper tier sales have been soft in the Seaside marketplace due to a lack of secondary home buyers. Seaside has been impacted by the economy as secondary home buyers took to the bleachers when the stock market collapsed in 2008. Trends reflect that there were two additional sales above $ 500,000 with the biggest sale y-t-d being an ocean view property that sold at: $ 810,000. Opportunists should be aware that for the first time in many years deals are abundant on ocean front homes that have historically listed for atleast 1 million + Today, a (0 comments)
Warrenton remains the land of opportunity. Economic growth is concentrated in this marketplace as we anxiously await the opening of the biggest Costco ever. One cannot fathom the introduction of such retail giants as Wal-Mart & Big 5 coming to our area. The growth is welcomed as it brings employment opportunities to our needy area. That being said, Warrenton remains the land of affordable homes. New home construction has been the driver as first time homebuyers enter the market. One needs to look only at the Warrenton market for evidence of impact of the governmental First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit. I (0 comments)
As you can see from the sales trends above, the highest concentration of sales is in the $ 200,000-250k price range for the second year in a row. The introduction of the First Time Home Buyer's Tax Credit is to be acknowledged for the growth in these market segements. For the first time in many years we're seeing the re-introduction of home listed below $ 200,000. This is due in part to the entry of bank owned properties & short sales. Inventory in our area continues to drop from the record highs of 2008. Continued inventory declines are to be expected (2 comments)
