What is a ‘Shadow Inventory’, and is it being the lowest number since 2008 a good thing?   We’ve been hearing a LOT about the foreclosed or soon to be foreclosed home hitting the marketplace and how that may impact property values. As I’ve said before, stats can be read many ways, and there are positives in this statistic, but it’s important to look at the other details in this report.                                              

The perfect home for you hobbyists out there.     At a mere $5,000,000 it might not be enough home for you J, but I’m thinking there is room to have just about any hobby you can think of. I LOVE the quest house that looks like an old Western Town.                               

 Does living in a city NOT in the Top 10 ‘Manly’ cities lower testosterone levels in men?  It doesn’t say in this survey, but it does say if you have a lot of coffee shops, sushi bars (aren’t Ninja’s manly??), and don’t have a rodeo, you might want to have your levels checked. Portland is #32 by the way. So I guess we’re kind of middlin’ manly.                                                                                                            

The Sellwood Bridge project intersects with bike and walking trails – and a decision has been made. The good news is for the bike riders and walkers. And although it still works, the houseboat owners aren’t as thrilled. Check out the nice maps showing the changes.
