Portland Area Homes Visited August 26, 2018

While on travel to the Portland area, and knowing that many Californians have moved north in retirement, I visited a few open houses just to compare homes and property values. Here are two from Happy Valley, a suburb of Portland. Happy Valley and neighboring Clackamas, the County Seat, are about 15 minutes drive from Portland International Airport and 10-15 minutes from downtown Portland. The area abounds with outdoor activities – hiking, cycling, and any number of water-based sports including fishing, tubing, sailing, etc. Daytime high temperatures in the summer range from the 70’s to upper 90’s (for a week or so at a time). Winters, they tell me, are mild, with an occasional snowfall of 1-3 inches that melts away quickly with usual nighttime lows in the mid 30’s in winter. Nearby is Lake Oswego with waterfront homes ranging from $1M to $15M. If you, or anyone you know is considering retiring to, or simply moving to the Portland area, please feel free to contact the listing agent/agency, but please let them know how you found out about these homes.  — Jim Brady
