Celebrate National Trivia Day With Some Real Estate Trivia

January 4th is National Trivia Day so I’m bringing you some real estate trivia that you might find useful and/or amusing.

  • You might think Lake Oswego prices are high but Buckingham Palace is the most expensive house in the world, valued at $4.9 billion.
  • Red doors in Scotland have traditionally been the homeowner’s way of saying, “I’ve paid off my mortgage!”
  • From 1908–1940, Sears, Roebuck and Co. sold about 70,000 – 75,000 homes through their mail-order Modern Homes program. Some were no-bath cottages, for which a separate outhouse could be purchased.

If you’d like to know what your house is worth or how much it might cost you to move to Lake Oswego, give me a call at 503.939.9801 and/or email me at kevin.costello@cascadehassonsir.com. I’d love to put my 30+ years as a Lake Oswego Realtor and homeowner to work for you!
