Village On The Lake Real Estate Update June 2013 Lake Oswego OR: Village On The Lake

It’s the last day of June 2013 – hard to believe it!  There has been a swarm of Village on the Lake real estate activity recently!  Some has been off market and some on market by Realtors in the MLS.  This information is on both.

Active Village On The Lake Homes For Sale: Currently there are two homes for sale in the Village On The Lake Neighborhood in Lake Oswego, Oregon. One of them located on Village Drive has a sign up, but is not listed in the MLS as of yet, however in speaking with the agent it is just under $900,000. Now that the tenants have moved out, I believe it may be going on the public MLS.   The other one of theVillage On The Lake Homes for sale is a two bedroom on View Lake Court that has been listed for about a month with an asking price of $1,295,000.  Both of these homes have great views of Oswego Lake and the neighborhood as a whole has one of the best Oswego Lake easements and marinas on the lake.
