First, some fun!

See the St. Johns Bridge from a bird's eye view

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Seattle has the Space Needle. New York, the Empire State Building. But the defining feature of Portland's skyline isn't a building – it's the eleven unique bridges that cross the Willamette River and connect the east and west sides of the city.

The St. Johns Bridge is arguably the most beautiful bridge in Portland. The steel suspension bridge's painted green frame rises higher than any other bridge in the city, and more than 20,000 cars travel across it every day. http://www.kgw.com/story/features/2015/01/19/video-shows-st-johns-bridge-from-a-birds-eye-view/22024981/

35 Awesome Things To Do In Oregon

There’s a whole lot more than Portland that’s keeping Oregon weird (and totally wonderful.)

1. Jump Into The Deepest Lake In The United States

Crater Lake, besides being the deepest lake in the United States with a depth of 1,946 feet, is also incredibly beautiful. The water is so blue that it’s almost surreal.

2. Finally Cross “Climb A Mountain” Off Your Bucket List

From beginner trails like the Dog Mountain Trail to death defying climbs up Mount Jefferson, there’s a mountain for everyone in Oregon. Just wait until spring when the weather is right so James Franco doesn’t end up playing you in a movie.

The “Peter Iredale” is one of the most accessible shipwrecks on the Pacific. It’s been over a century since the wreck, but the remains are still visible on the Warrenton, Oregon coast.

Pumped up kicks...

Nike's expansion: two buildings, two parking garages and at least $150 million

Nike has filed plans in Washington County for an ambitious expansion that includes two new buildings, two parking garages and the possible extension of a giant berm around another corner of the company's sprawling corporate campus.

The campus expansion has been expected since 2012, but the scale of the new plans is more than double a previous plan Nike submitted last year before shelving it.

Included in the new plans:

  • A 412,000-square-foot office building with 500 parking spaces underneath the building.
  • A second office building with 649,000 square feet of office space, 238,000 square feet of "accessory space" and 500 parking spaces underneath the building.
  • A parking garage with 1,400 spaces, 50,000 square feet of accessory space and a "district utility plant" inside the garage.
  • A second parking garage with 1,100 spaces.
  • A "permanent berm" adjacent to 158th and Jenkins, which suggests Nike will extend the berm around the majority of the campus to its southwest corner.

And last but not least, a bit about Portland's housing inventory. Clients who wanted to look at homes last weekend gave me a list of 9 homes. I went to make appointments and within half an hour as I made those calls, 2 went pending. The following day, another went pending. Of the 6 we did look at, they decided to make an offer on one of them. By the time we did, it had gone pending. It's a seller's market for sure, and it certainly doesn't feel like a slow season to me!

Supply of Portland-area properties for sale hits 8-year low, median home prices up 8.5 percent in 1 year

It's a seller's market in the Portland area, according to the latest figures from RMLS. (Mike Francis / The Oregonian)

Just 2.3 months' worth of residential properties are for sale in the Portland area at normal rates of turnover, according to December figures from the Regional Multiple Listings Service. That's lower than at any time over at least the last eight years.

Dustin Miller of the Realty Trust Group in Lake Oswego said Wednesday that Portland-area real estate brokers are feeling desperate.

"It is like we are African animals in the center of the Serengeti watching the oasis get smaller and smaller," he said by email. "We are losing that Christmas and New Years fat quickly while running all over town!"

Decembers tend to be slow months in the real estate business, anyway. But new listings and pending sales in the metro area declined last month, while the number of completed sales rose to 2,239, according to RMLS. Taken together, the trends mean an already tight inventory was squeezed even more.
