tigard real estate agents: Grand Hotel - 10/09/09 07:14 PM
Was anyone besides me wondering what in the world they've been building behind the Bridgeport Whole Foods?  Well the Tigard Times tells me that it is a new hotel.  Someone didn't get the news about the economy.  But sometimes a down economy is the perfect time to act. 
A family-run Salem company called VIPS Industries opened up the Grand Hotel in August.  They used to own a restaurant on this same spot but it did not work out.  Then Bridgeport Village moved in and an opportunity arose.  VIPS Industries always knew this location would be great, that is why they held … (2 comments)

tigard real estate agents: Hollywood Calls On Tigard - 07/15/09 01:54 PM
“Public Enemies,” the movie which just opened Wednesday, Johnny Depp’s plays John Dillinger who holds up banks and fights off FBI agents.  If you find yourself admiring his sleek gun holster, it's because it was made in Tigard, Oregon.
Ted Blocker Holsters produced the leather holsters worn by Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Jason Clarke and several others.
Don and Shelley Brown have owned the holster company since 1999 and produced props for several other movies. So it is nothing new for them but it does make them proud to see their products out there.
California prop house Independent Studio Services contacted … (1 comments)

tigard real estate agents: New Rules Could Cost Oregon Sellers - 03/18/09 06:45 PM
According to this article, when a home's soil is test to see if the oil tank is leaking they are testing for a carcinogen call benzene.  If too much benzene is found the oil tank has to be decommissioned.  This just means making sure that chemicals are not leaking to the home or groundwater.  Most of the time this does not require much soil removal to comply with guidelines but two new chemicals have been deemed carcinogenic by the Environmental Protection Agency. 
Naphthalene and ethylbenzene are now considered carcinogens and are a part of the updated screening test for leaky oil … (6 comments)

tigard real estate agents: Score A Deal! - 03/10/09 04:33 PM
Before recently most people had never even heard of a short sale, now buyers are out looking for them to make sure they are getting a deal. 
A short sale is when the bank agrees to discount the loan balance for a seller who owes more on his mortgage than the home is currently worth.  And since nowadays these are everywhere, you are going to find one on your house hunting trip whether you want to or not. 
So there is a down side to these things, you have to work for them.  There is the extra step of getting approval … (25 comments)

tigard real estate agents: Choosing Foreclosure - 03/06/09 05:52 PM
It is said that 20% of home owners are "underwater" on their mortgages and more and more homes are going into foreclosure every day.  For many the best financial option is to let their home go into foreclosure instead of throw away thousands of dollars that the home has lost in value. 
The prediction is that most of these home owners will do just that but some think that people aren't always so rational. 
One reason is that people tend to over value their own home.  That makes it to valuable for them to just walk away from. 
Secondly, people tend … (2 comments)
