RPR valuation from gives it a median value at $295k and nothing currently in the Eagle Crest Dr condo area comes close to it's fine condition, excellent exterior and sun light exposure or offering a 502 s.f. outdoor living deck. I'd need to do more CMA research, but the immediate information at hand suggests the opposite - a decent buy. ... more

A good idea might be to place a local ad in the neighborhood or community newspaper stating that you have qualified buyers and their specific needs.

My prediction is the market is going to stabilize. What I mean is we will be moving out of a "Seller's" market with an increase of inventory. Prices will not sky rocket like last year's 12% gain instead will gain a more normal 5 to 6% value year over year. Homes in Lake Oswego in particular will keep there value as it is one of Portland Metro's most popular areas. I also believe interest rates will continue to rise slowly but banks will loosen lending standards to compete. Hopefully we will see an increase in consumer confidence so the days-on-market decrease especially in Lake Oswego where they can be numerous. ... more

I agree with Linda, it depends! Best if you ask me 97034 is better overall. 97034 is the North side and 97035 is the South side of the lake. (Generally speaking)

97034 best ares include: First addition, Old Town, Country Club, Forest Hills, Village on the Lake, North Shore, Chandler. Homes in these areas are priced anywhere from $400 - over $1 Million. On the lake or lake access pulls the most value. Here's a tip - Home's in First Addition and Old Town do not have coveted lake access. Village on the Lake has many modern homes 1980 or newer. First addition has lots of new construction and old charm. Walk to downtown!

97035 best areas include: Palisades, Mountain Park, West Lake, South Shore, Bryant, Lake View, Lake Grove: West Lake is super family friendly with sidewalks and parks. It is the most modern neighborhood in Lake Oswego. Mountain Park comes equipped with a Rec Center. The more affordable neighborhoods are located in Palisades, Lake grove, and homes off of lower Boones Ferry.

That sounds like a awesome ideal. I would advise you to do your home work on the contractor, the cheapest is not always the best and make sure you get a completion date. I think it is a great selling point to have a bath ( full or half ) next to the master bedroom. Thumbs up !!! ... more
