How do Lake Oswego Neighborhoods Compare?

When you are looking to buy a new home, you can’t always do what one of our neighbors did.

Before she wrote an offer on a house on our block, she knocked on a few doors, including ours, to get a sense for whether her potential new digs were kid-friendly, quiet, and safe.

As a Realtor who has lived in Lake Oswego for over 25 years, I try to give my clients a “feel” for the area in which they are looking to live.

But one place to start looking, short of knocking on doors, is just the facts—what do homes sell for in that area? How many homes are available? What are some of the assets unique to that particular area?

I’ve tried to outline some of these considerations in a series of comparisons I’ll be offering over the next few weeks. At a glance, you can see where homes might be more affordable, what neighborhoods give you access to a swim or boat easement, or where you should look if a short commute is important to you.

This week we’ll start with a look at a few neighborhoods on the southwest side of town: Bryant, Blue Heron and Rosewood/Rivergrove. You can also find out more about Bryant on one of my earlier posts.
