It has been a really busy Spring real estate market and forgot to post that I have now been writing my blog for 10 years (originally on a different site that got lost over 7 times in cyberspace!). Who would have guessed I had that much to write about – and I’m not done yet!

Real estate is ever-changing – people are all different, houses are different, situations are different and laws and rules are always changing.

It has always been my belief that the more you know, the better decisions you can make.  Since 1978 I have been writing a newsletter – Jung’s Journal – that I send to my past clients, people I know and to certain neighborhoods in Lake Oswego.  My newsletter contains information that you won’t find here and this blog has information you won’t see in my newsletter or on my Facebook blog either.  I try to make my writings interesting and informative and change things around.

Lake Oswego Real Estate Blog Anniversary

My blog’s formal name is ALL ABOUT…..Lake Oswego Real Estate.  You may be wondering why I called my blog that and why I type the title in a certain way.

You’re probably thinking that since this blog is all about real estate and Lake Oswego thus the name. DO NOT COPY! Well, that isn’t the reason at all. There was a series of children books in the 1950s (now https://lakeoswegorealestateblog.wordpress.com/collectibles) entitled “ALL ABOUT….” Each book was written about a specific and different subject; i.e. “ALL ABOUT…..Park Rangers”, “ALL ABOUT…..the Sea”, etc. Therefore, since real estate is such a vast subject with so many topics, I thought that would be a great name.

My hope over all this time was and still is to keep you informed on the latest real estate happenings in Lake Oswego, its surrounding areas and neighborhoods, writing about Oregon and national real estate trends as well. With my experience and education, I have lots to share and, hopefully, you will personally benefit from all that I have learned. In addition, Lake Oswego, Oregon is a wonderful place to live and I’d like to continue to introduce it to you through my eyes, photographs and words.

Thanks for your continued support and readership.

Lake Oswego Hazelia Dog Park

Today was National Pet Day.  While I am a bit late posting for today’s holiday, I did go to Hazelia Dog Park in Lake Oswego to check out all the dogs at play.

I had been there before but it had been quite a while and wanted to do some more checking around.  There were only a few dogs there but one of the dog owners said “you should see it on a Saturday”.

Many people have told me it is the best dog park because it has 2 separate large fenced areas for big and small dogs or as their signs say “timid/shy” and “active” dogs. There is also a good mix of grass and bark.

In addition, there is room for dogs to run and the park has play structures.  For the fur baby owners there is a sitting area, shaded areas and restrooms.  The park is nicely maintained with separate areas for small and large dogs, an area where the dogs can be rinsed off during our rainy days and lots of areas that have water to quench the dogs’ thirst.

Of all the dogs today, this cutie in the picture, came racing up to me wanting a “meet and greet”.bettyjung.com

New Dog Park Coming In Lake Oswego

There is a new dog park that will be opening soon in the Lake Grove area – the West Waluga Fenced Dog Park.  Watch here for the grand opening info.  There will then be eastside and westside dog parks.

I have been reading posts on my local NextDoor Neighborhood app, where residents have been complaining about their high water bills.

With Spring and Summer just around the corner, now might be a very good time to have a water audit performed at your home in Lake Oswego.  There could be a tiny leak, or a major one, that you are not aware of increasing the cost of your water.

One of the most important things that a homeowner can do to save water is make sure that equipment is functioning appropriately and is efficient.  The City of Lake Oswego offers free Water Audits to help citizens find ways to use less water.   Water audits are performed during the spring and summer seasons when watering yards begins.  Watering your yard is the main way that water is lost either through over watering or inefficient systems.  The Water Conversation Specialist can also help someone with understanding water efficient appliances, conservation tools and leak detection, many times over the phone.

Scheduling a Water Audit

Stay connected, water audits will start back up Spring 2018.

We have had a different than normal spring this year. Lots of rain, some flooding, some landslides and some really saturated landscapes. The snow pack looks great which means we have a better than even chance of having a good summer this year. At present, there is a tremendous amount of moisture in the soil and the extended forecast is predicting even more over the next month. Using this time to get your sprinklers up and running, your backflow preventer tested and getting your yard ready for the season is great…….  just don’t run the sprinklers yet. Save yourself a buck or two and wait until Mother Nature extracts a bit of that moisture for us as we move into summer. This is one of the best ways to get your watering issues under control before the big dry spell in July and August.

Most residents that have had an audit and followed through with some or all of the recommendations are enjoying summertime water savings exceeding 20% an more. Customers that are high water users and whose bill typically are the tier 2 or 3 are strongly encouraged to call an set up an appointment. Customers that have received an audit in previous years will not qualify for another.

If you would like to receive a notice that Water Audits are being scheduled and receive information on any new free conservation item available please sign up for the Conservation e-news subscription at www.ci.oswego.or.us/newsletter/subscriptions . Signing up will help you remember to review and implement conservation measures before the summer months arrive and water usage increases.

Schedule your Water Audits by calling Kevin McCaleb at 503.675.3747 or email (link sends e-mail) him to set up an appointment.

What is a Water Audit?

Saving money and saving water is what a water audit is all about.  During a visit to your home or business, the City’s Water Conservation Specialist, Kevin McCaleb, will assess the water using equipment both inside and outside your home.  The Water Conservation Specialist will offer suggestions to help improve the way you manage your water so you can save money and resources.

Though the Water Conservation Specialist won’t look specifically for leaks, he can generally detect if a leak exists and often it’s most likely location.  When finished, he will provide you with a copy of the recommendations to help you begin to make changes.  An audit will identify not only the problems, but solutions as well.  This service is offered to any Lake Oswego water customer for free.

Water Audits Not Performed During Rainy Months

Water audits are not performed during the rainy months because the majority of water loss and inefficiency can be found from yard watering habits and tools.

During the rainy months,or even when there is periodic rain, customers are urged to discontinue watering as it is not necessary for the health of the yard.

Wondering how to dispose or recycle your Christmas tree Lake Oswego?Copyright Betty Jung, MORE Realty, Inc.

A lot of it comes down to the preparation.  Most trees are recycled into wood chips or compost, so it’s important to remove all lights, tinsel, ornaments, nails, stands and other non-organic materials. Flocked trees may not be accepted at all locations and over-sized trees should be cut in half.  If in doubt, call ahead for additional information and fees.

Republic Services provides curbside tree recycling through your weekly yard debris collection service.  Trees must fit completely inside your green yard debris collection bin if using your regular weekly service, so you may need to cut them up. Customers with no yard waste service or with trees not able to fit in yard waste bins, can contact Republic Services at 503-636-3011 to schedule a pick-up for a fee.

Lake Oswego And Our Trees

https://lakeoswegorealestateblog.wordpress.com/When I first started selling real estate in Lake Oswego in 1978, and buyers were looking for newer homes with trees, one of the only newer areas that had trees was Mt. Park.

Trees have always been a draw to buyers especially those moving into our area from out of state. Of course there are many benefits to having trees in your yard not to mention the million shades of green there are.

However, over the years, and still to this day, Lake Oswego has become known as a town where it is almost impossible to have a tree removed from your property.  Not unlike other areas, there are rules as to which tree, or what kind of situation will allow you to remove one.

In addition to the City having rules as to which tree(s) can be removed, your HOA could be like mine, where you need to get approval from your HOA as well before any trees are taken down.

Tree Protection and Removal Workshop

While I think I know what the rules are to remove trees, I need a refresher.  I have several trees now that I would like to remove but not certain if I would be allowed to.

If you are like me, you might like to know there is a workshop scheduled to explore the City’s tree code requirements for tree protection and tree removal permits.

This workshop will take place at Lake Oswego City Hall, 380 A Avenue and will include:

  • An indoor presentation to explain the various types of tree removal permits.
  • An outdoor demonstration with examples of measuring tree diameter, tree protection fencing, techniques for protecting trees during construction and more.

Please email planning@lakeoswego.city or call 503-635-0290 for free registration.  Visit http://www.ci.oswego.or.us/planning to learn more about the Urban & Community Forestry Workshop series.
