Gresham, Troutdale, Fairview & Wood Village; You’re up to Bat!

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Just finished the real estate market tracking report for Gresham, Fairview, Troutdale and Wood Village…This is again, only 10 days worth of data so not super reliable yet (give it a few weeks; trends and real usable data will show itself); with that said Gresham seems to be where only those looking for deals are buying as the average sale price in Gresham (and the mentioned towns in the Gresham area) are below the $200,000 mark:




Portland Homes for Sale: Portland’s Foreclosure List for Today, great home in Persimmon (the fine part of Gresham)

Friday, July 30th, 2010

The list for Portland’s Bank Owned just listed/ price reduced is smaller today. I noticed alot of homes listed in Gresham and Gladstone in this batch. Occasionally I see a home worth noting.. there is one in Persimmon (everyone’s heard of Persimmon Golf Course right?).  At one point this home was listed as high as $630k, close to it’s taxed assessed value, now you can catch it $400k.  The elementary is Hogan Cedars,  I hear good things about that one…. call me if you want to tour! Below is a link, remember it’s only good for 2 weeks and I Twitter the REO lists everyday on my Twitter account! -Kristie McD.  (503) 577-9395

Interesting list today. Remember I post the REO properties almost daily on my Twitter account.  Anyhow, we have a home in Persimmon here (very nice neighborhood in Gresham), a few homes (although overpriced) in Happy Valley, and of course our HUGE variety of broken down homes under $200k.  There are certainly plenty of first time home buyers to pick those up out there right now!  However the inner Portland Bungalow that everyone REALLY wants is in limited supply.

Incase you are curious, we are seeing multiple offers on homes in that $200k and under price range on a regular basis; if you are that first time home buyer don’t wait until the last minute to purchase and get that credit! -Kristie McD.


Gresham – a city with great potential

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

A while back, I read this interesting editorial piece in the Oregonian about the city of Gresham, past, then and now. As Gresham has changed from a town of 10,000 to a city of 100,000 over the past 50 years, there have been a lot of very positive developments alongside with some minor concerns. Here’s a summary of the article’s main points.

Historic Downtown Gresham
There are a lot of attractive townhomes and condominiums close to downtown Gresham now, but there is not enough population density to attract a decent market , yet, and the quality and variety of shops aren’t quite there yet, either. This development is happening and downtown Gresham presents a good opportunity for potential home buyers.

Mount Hood Jazz Festival Site
The two-acre grassy site of the Mt. Hood Jazz Festival is proposed as the home of the Gresham Center for the Arts. With approval from the City Council, the project would bring a full complex of indoor and outdoor entertainment and event sites as well as a promising public-event plaza.

Leadership at City Hall
There now is unaccustomed potential at City Hall, too. For the first time in a long time, there is a uniformly bright, reasonably experienced and business-oriented council. There is great potential for quality development.
