Felida Market Report

We enjoy visiting the Clark County community known as Felida. Its name has an interesting story too. When the Post Office was established in 1890, the name Powley was submitted to honor an area resident. The name was denied, but the Post Office suggested instead, "Polly." The postmaster thought the name sounded like a parrot and remarked, "they might as well name the post office after my cat." Therefore, he submitted "Thomas," the cat's name, as well as, "Tomcat, and "Felidae," Latin for big cats. Felida was approved!

Felida, long known for its pastoral settings, is changing because many of the area's farms were purchased by developers in recent years. Therefore, farmlands have been replaced with large subdivisions. Homes on larger parcels are generally resale, as most builders tend to minimize lot size in new construction projects to increase their bottom line.

However, there are some new custom homes being built on larger lots in Felida. For example, in Ashley Ridge there are some new homes on one-half to one-third acre lots sited with greenbelt backyard views. Many of the homes we enjoy in the area have views of Vancouver Lake, Salmon Creek, or peaceful territorial vistas.

Points of Interest: You can access the Salmon Creek Greenway Trail from the Felida bridge at NW 36th Avenue. The trail offers a scenic natural getaway in northern Vancouver. Paved, tree-lined trails wind along the creek and through wetlands for 3.88 miles and give runners, walkers, and bikers sightings of deer, rabbits, raccoons, beavers and many kinds of birds.

Hi Debb & Bernie - Excellent market report. We're seeing the same kinds of lot size choices being made in our newer subdivisions, but part of that is municipal priorities on density. Whe builders find ways around those to offer bigger lots, the response is usually very positive.
