Happy National Dog Day!
Every Day is Dog Day! 
Heading back from a hike with Mt Hood in the mirror. Every day is a ball day, or a frisbee day, or a hike day, or some combination; a day with my dog.
Or sunset at the waterfront in Hood River
Let's see a picture of your dog(s)

mel ahrens: South Wasco County Real Estate Market Price Changes July 2019 - 08/13/19 12:41 PM
Here are recent price decreases in the South Wasco County Residential Real Estate Market, including Maupin, Wamic, and Tygh Valley.  These price decreases occurred from July 1 through July 31, 2019.
It is interesting to note some Wasco County properties have had multiple price decreases while others have reduced price shortly after going on the market.  This indicates the property was not priced at market, the market is in transition or both.  Recently, there has been a meaningful increase in Wasco County residential property inventory. More inventory means more competition for buyers. If you are selling, it is critical to price your property correctly.
