Here are recent price decreases in The Dalles residential real estate market.  These price decreases occurred from July 1 through July 31, 2019.It is interesting to note some properties have had multiple price decreases while others have reduced price shortly after going on the market.  This indicates the property was not priced at market, the market is in transition or both.  Recently, there has been a meaningful increase in The Dalles residential property inventory. More inventory means more competition for buyers. If you are selling, it is critical to price your property correctly.In July 2019 there were a total of 28 homes in The Dalles which experienced a change in price. One saw a $97,000 price reduction.

  Speechless Sunday - Pups Patiently Waiting   Mel took this shot of some adorable pups patiently waiting for their owner outside the Grocery Outlet in The Dalles, Oregon. It's not uncommon to find dogs waiting in pick-up beds, but this is the first time I've seen some move up onto the cab for a better view. I love how diligently and eagerly they await their master's return.

  Speechless Sunday - Youth Football Jamboree... Let the Season Begin!   Yesterday, our 11 year old, Ben, played for Hood River in The Dalles, Oregon in his football jamboree, the official kick-off of the 2012 football season. Youth tackle football is vastly popular in the Columbia River Gorge, starting in the 3rd grade. It's such a great community experience. This photo is the first play of the first game on which Hood River scored its first touchdown against Goldendale. Go Hood River!
