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.

Re: my earlier comment, I meant, of course, sunshine during the winter season. Living on the north side of the lake also gives a reflection of sunshine from the surface of the lake.

Actually, 97035 includes a lot of the north side of the lake. If you live near the lake (with a view of the lake), you have sun for more hours than if you live on the south side (on the north side of the hills.) Also, if you live near the lake, you will have access to a boating easement which gives you access to private Oswego Lake.

Great question, but almost impossible to answer. What is your price point? Are you willing to rehab a home? Having a good agent who knows the area and is able to identify a great opportunity is your best bet. But be prepared for competition as the best homes (represented by price & location) will get snapped up very quickly and usually in a competitive fashion. We have developed some excellent strategies for our buyers to ensure winning bids on these value oriented properties.
