Best Coffee and Espresso Shops in Portland

The Pacific Northwest is well known for its coffee culture, and Portland has some great places to grab a cup of Joe. There are national chains as well as local roasters with fresh brews made from beans roasted in-house. If you are looking for a place to make your new weekday morning pre-work stop or a quiet hang out to meet up with friends, we have a list of the best coffee shops in Portland.

 Best Coffee and Espresso Shops in Portland

1.    Barista

A small Portland chain, with three shops in the downtown area. Barista showcases beans from local roasters all over Portland as well as beans roasted in other locations and sweet snacks from Roman Candle. Hit the Pine Street Market store if you are a tea lover to check out their vacuum-infusion tea system.

 

2.    Behind the Museum Cafe

A great place if you are looking for a serenely quiet atmosphere. It is perfect to catch up on some reading or work. Find a great menu of Extracto coffee drinks and a full menu if Japanese teas.

 

3.    Case Study Coffee

Right downtown serving up their own roasted blends and a large menu of eats from Roman Candle, Petunia’s pastries, and Bowery Bagels. This is a cozy shop with plenty of seating to get lost for hours people watching in downtown Portland.

 

4.    Courier Coffee Roasters

A Portland mainstay and tradition for many longtime Portland residents. Drop in to taste the homemade pastries and house-roasted coffee. In the summer enjoy delicious Japanese shaved ice.

 

5.    Heart Coffee Roasters

Like Pacific Northwesterners, Scandinavians know a good cup of coffee. Heart Coffee Roasters is a Scandinavian inspired cafe specializing in light roast coffees, pair one with a pastry and enjoy the west end neighborhood.

 

6.    Ole Latte Coffee

Okay, so this one isn’t your traditional brick and mortar sit down coffee shop. Ole Latte Coffee is a cart you can find parked outside of Portland State. This is a great place to go for a quick weekday morning jolt and to give some more pick-me-up to your day you can participate in the “suspended coffee” program, a pay it forward program of sorts for anyone in need of a lift.

 

7.    Ristretto Roasters

A unique couple of cafes offering wonderful espressos and teas in the morning and day then come back in the evening for great atmosphere and apres work wine and beer. If you go, order one of their macchiatos or Jasmine Pearl tea.

 

8.    Spella Caffe

Just a tiny little cafe tucked into the bottom of an office building, but don’t let the size fool you it is packed full of customers and for good reason. Grab a coffee to go at this Italian cafe or a delicious Affogato, hot espresso poured over gelato.

 

9.    Stumptown Coffee Roasters

The most popular and widely known coffee shop in Portland. There are multiple locations and you won’t be sorry ordering the famous Stumptown cold brew.

 

10.  Water Avenue Coffee

Now available in two locations, this local roaster is growing for a reason. Their coffee is delicious.

More Growth on the Horizon for Clark County

For many, living in Clark County today can be either good or frustrating: there are a lot of new jobs out there, people and developers are flocking to the area, and housing remains scarce.

But there is little doubt the local economy is expanding and will likely continue to do so through 2018, experts say.

“Everything seems to be improving at a moderate rate,” said Scott Bailey, regional economist for the state Employment Security Department. “So, you know, I don’t see anything on the horizon that says caution, look out. If we keep on this path, it bodes well.”

Preliminary state employment data shows that Clark County added 7,500 jobs last year, a 4.8 percent increase. That rate outpaces the average growth rates of the nation, the states of Washington and Oregon and the rest of the Vancouver-Portland metropolitan area. Unemployment, while not a perfect statistic, dropped from 6.4 percent in January to 4.5 percent in November.

The three biggest growth sectors were construction; trade, transportation and utilities; and professional and business services. Meanwhile, the once-dominant manufacturing sector added only 400.

A closer look at growing sectors reveals how Clark County is changing, Bailey said. Jobs for people without college degrees are still available, but they aren’t growing as fast and neither are the wages.

“We’ve shifted a bit from midrange, a-bit-above-average jobs that are fairly accessible to more professional, higher-wage jobs,” he said.

Bailey added that many workers may see a bump in pay, but it will vary. Initiatives to increase the minimum wage in Washington will lift the lowest rung of hourly workers, while high employment could help many others. It’s higher-paying jobs that tend to have the best gains, though.

“We’ve been seeing for years that lower-wage jobs move up slower than higher-wage jobs, in terms of percent gain,” he said.

Construction workers, nurses and software developers are projected to be some of the most coveted jobs in the coming decade, according to the state Employment Security Department. However, most of the job openings will occur in retail and restaurants.

 

More Bodies, Buildings

Good news for those companies, and potentially tough news for homebuyers, is that Clark County is attracting more than 1,500 new residents per month, according to the state Department of Licensing.

Between 2014 and 2016, Clark County welcomed an average 18,365 people per year. That is 33 percent more than the average 13,773 per year between the years 2000 and 2013 — or 382 more people every month.

Still, the Columbia River Economic Development Council estimates that roughly 60,000 Clark County residents work in Oregon, and 40,000 work in Multnomah County.

While population growth is good for many businesses, it continues to squeeze the local housing market. The median sale price for a Clark County house rose last year by 9.3 percent, increasing from $298,600 in January to $326,500 in December.

Local experts say available homes are so few that it will take years of building to catch up to demand.

Homes, including new and resales, spent an average 48 days on the market last year, according to the Regional Multiple Listing Service.

Quelling demand will mean increasing the supply, a boon for many local homebuilders. The National Association of Home Builders currently puts builder confidence at its highest levels since July 1999.

To scratch the surface in Clark County, one developer is proposing more than 400 homes in Vancouver’s Landover-Sharmel neighborhood. Separately, developer Urban NW Homes said its developments in Brush Prairie have a nine-month backlog.

Batches of new housing could get median housing price increases down to 5 percent, but the influx of new residents, rising costs of building and a shortage of land could keep prices high, according to the Building Industries Association of Clark County.

“In a growing economy and due to the desirable area that we live in, supply will not fully meet demand for housing because people will want to move here and we don’t necessarily have the buildable land supply to support significant population growth,” said Executive Director Avaly Scarpelli.

 

Commerce in County

Consumers seem to be feeling more confident in Clark County, prompting big swings in commercial development. Some bigger projects were also hit with setbacks.

The latest quarterly sales tax data from the state Department of Revenue shows spending is up in every city and in unincorporated Clark County. Vancouver alone topped $1 billion in taxable retail sales for the first time.

Competing for those dollars will be a slew of restaurants and retailers, packaged in big new ways.

Gramor Development, based in Tualatin, Ore., will open two restaurant buildings, an office tower and an apartment complex this summer to kick off The Waterfront Vancouver, a multiyear 21-block redevelopment along the Columbia River.

Upstream, the Port of Vancouver signed tenant No. 1 at its own waterfront site, Terminal 1. That 10-acre project includes a new hotel to break ground in late 2018, apartments, restaurants and a public market.

In the Lower Grand neighborhood, crews broke ground on a 300,000-square-foot plaza that will host offices, new stores and restaurants. Vancouver developer Killian Pacific projects the site will support 3,000 jobs that will earn an average salary of $69,000.

It’s not just big organizations flexing in the current economy. Downtown Vancouver accounting firm Johnson Bixby & Associates plans to knock down its single-story building for a five-story mixed-use development. Even the managers of Providence Academy, built in 1870, revealed plans recently to sell part of its property that will become a 140-unit apartment complex with 7,800 square feet of commercial space.

That kind of growth can build on itself. The Columbia River Economic Development Council, whose job it is to recruit and retain businesses in Clark County, said there is confidence that Vancouver is moving in the right direction economically.

“We don’t predict, specifically, but in terms of the businesses that we’re talking to, everybody seems pretty optimistic,” said President Mike Bomar.

But fortunes this year won’t all be good. Georgia-Pacific is expected to lay off nearly 300 papermakers at its Camas mill by summer. The city doesn’t rely on the mill as much as it used to, but losing that many jobs in an industry paying $77,588 on average is glaring, said Bailey.

“Let’s put it this way: if the CREDC announced a new employer with 300 jobs, averaging $80,000 a year, that’d be a headline wouldn’t it?” he said. “And those folks are going to have a hard time finding replacement jobs. What are they going to do now?”

Likewise, the Port of Vancouver is still pursuing its first tenant for Terminal 5. Don Orange’s election to the board of commissioners effectively doomed a massive crude-by-rail project. While many are happy to hear that, the port will keep searching for an anchor for the 100-acre parcel it has spent more than $275 million turning into prized land for an import/export operation.

The future of the Interstate 5 Bridge likely won’t be solved in 2018, but Bomar said it does hang over a lot of economic discussions.

“The ability to draw from a 2-million-person workforce versus half a million, there is a difference in the types of companies you can draw,” he said. “You’re still seeing growth, but it is affecting the type of businesses that want to move here.”

5 Must-Haves For Your New Home

You're looking for a new house and you don't want to mess this up, right? I mean, buyers remorse after you've spent a half $1 million or more can be gut-wrenching so do yourself a favor and make sure your home has these must-haves.

#1. Enough bathrooms.

With today's brand-new homes the subject is not enough bathrooms is usually not a problem. Many new homes have at least two full bathrooms with perhaps one half bath or a couple half baths or three-quarters bath. But some of the older homes may only have one and will that be enough? Make sure you have enough bathrooms to handle the size of household.

#2. Convenient laundry.

Many people don't even think of this until it's laundry day. If the laundry is all the way out in the garage or in the basement, that can be a pain looking big laundry baskets back and forth all day. Some of the newer homes have laundry rooms upstairs where the bedrooms are, which makes a lot of sense.

#3. A kitchen you can work with.

Is the kitchen workable as it is? Would be sufficient for what you want to do in it? There are people that hate cooking so smaller kitchen is ideal, especially since it doesn't take up much space for other activities in the house, but if you love to cook and you know that it is a common gathering place, make sure it is sufficient for its usage.

#4. A sufficient garage.

Will you be parking the car in the garage or just using it is storage? Regardless, there something to having a garage either attached or detached. It keeps your car cool in the summertime and a little bit warmer in the winter by keeping it in the garage.

#5. The right layout.

Of course, walls can be moved and layouts changed but that's a lot of extra expense so it's important to get a layout that you like right away. Does it work for your family size? Is there a good gathering place for everyone? Is the layout of bedrooms and bathrooms convenient for you? Will you be frustrated because a room is not where you think it should be?

All of these things are important to determine if the home is right for you. Of course, there are 1000 little details that make up the house, but these five prominent points are some of the tops to be considered.

Is Now a Good Time to Sell a House in Beaverton?

The real estate market in Beaverton Oregon is hot right now but it's not as hot as it was over the last year. Things have cool bath ever so slightly but it doesn't mean that it's a bad time to sell.

Especially in Hillsboro and the Beaverton area, home prices have gone up about 5 1/2% over the last year making this an extremely hot market, even more so than downtown Portland.Is Now a Good Time to Sell a House in Beaverton?

The average home a sales price is between $350,000 and $372,000. The median sales price has gone up from a $330,000 with a dip in November and December back up to nearly $360,000 over the course of the last year. The price per square foot has also gone from just under $200 a square foot to about $213 a square foot.

But, it's still winter, so is this a good time to sell?

Yes, because there are just fewer homes on the market, which means you won't have a lot of competition, and most buyers that are out looking this time of year are motivated to buy quickly. There are less than 200 properties for sale throughout the Portland area and there are about 140 homes for rent, which means that whether you're looking at the rental market with a real estate market, it's a good time to be either a landlord or the seller.

But what if you have to buy in the same market?

Buying and selling simultaneously can get a little bit tricky but if you use the same agent (if you're not moving across state lines, that is) it can be an easy move. A lot of times people will roll their equity right into the down payment of a new home and not miss a beat or a dollar on the mortgage payment.

But what does the nation think of the Beaverton and Portland real estate market? A recent report said that our market has the nation's largest year-over-year gains and home values for five straight months between October and February. Because of the low inventory competition is higher than ever and many home prices are above with they were before the recession. The most popular, a three bedroom, two bath bungalow in downtown Portland average is nearly $400,000, which is averaging about $360,000 in Beaverton. But of course, you get Beaverton's great location, excellent schools, and you are out of the city a bit.

So, is a good time to sell a house in Beaverton? Yes, and I wouldn't wait for spring if you are under the gun a little bit. Now is a great time to get on the market before the rush of spring happens. Give us a call if you'd like to know what your Beaverton home is worth check the market updates on my website for free.

Will the Stock Market Affect Your Chance of Buying a Home?

It's been a rocky road the last couple of weeks on the stock market and it has sent some into a panic. It's gotten a lot of people to rethink their investments and take a closer look at their financial picture, but what impact does this have on the real estate market?How will the stock market affect real estate

Experts say that there's not a lot to worry about if you're planning on buying a home even though a nearly 1200 point drop is a little disconcerting. Most financial experts are some sort of correction coming because of the robust market over the last two years. As interest rates rise, the stock market tends to slow down. But most financial experts say that these historical highs over the last two years were bound to result in some sort of balancing act because of inflation and rising interest rates.

The effect on homebuyers or the potential impact on real estate is expected to be nominal. Most experts say the effect will be minimal and temporary. Of course, the stock market is the long game and depending on where you have your investments, you could be worried about the future. If you're planning on pulling out money as a down payment, your down payment may have shrunk considerably. If your goals are more than 10 years away you probably don't have much to worry about. But, if you were going to use that money as a down payment It may be time to reevaluate your portfolio with your financial advisor.

So what is the long-term effect on the real estate market? Publicly traded real estate based companies have moderate losses over the last couple of weeks and real estate investors felt an immediate pinch. While in reality, the effects may not be terminal, the potential for consumer confidence could have a far greater impact than just a few drops in the market.

Confidence in buying and consumerism has a far greater impact on the overall economy.It's not so much what's actually happening but the perception of it. Few people are likely to commit to a large mortgage payment if they feel that the economic future is uncertain. Even if people's retirement funds are not going to be touched for years, lack of confidence can be enough to deter people.

But, even though the stock market went down a bit, the unemployment rate is low and wage growth is picking up. Small upticks in mortgage rates have been slow down the real estate market in a lot of major cities across the US, Portland being one of them. The stability of real estate is an asset should help the industry is real estate is almost always a good investment. So all in all, investing in real estate over stocks right now sounds a lot more attractive. [Source]

Portland's Most Popular Neighborhoods

Our real estate market is not going as gangbusters as it did the beginning of 2017, that doesn't mean that it's cooled off that much. There are several hot neighborhoods that are in high demand. Even though sales in December were down about 10% compared to the prior year, this is primarily due to the low selection of inventory. The 4th quarter of 2017 continued a strong demand in the Portland suburbs and here's where some of the top neighborhoods with the highest demand were located.

#1. Beaverton.Portland's Most Popular Neighborhoods in 2018

There were 114 sales in this code and homes spent an average of just 29 days on the market. The median sales price was $365,512 and they were just nodding homes on the market in this neighborhood at the end of December.

#2. South Aloha.

This neighborhood located just west of Beaverton presented only nine homes on the market itself at the end of December with the median sales price of $496,750.

#3. Vancouver Lake (Vancouver)

Just over the river, this popular Vancouver neighborhood had only six homes on the market at the end of December with the median price of $245,500. This is an extremely popular place for many Portlandians to move to since rent and home prices are so much cheaper.

#4. Tualatin.

Located south of downtown, the price for a home in Tualatin is $436,500. Homes spent an average of about 36 days on the market and there were 90 sales throughout the course of the year but only 12 homes remained on the market at the end of 2017.

#5. Central Beaverton.

Beaverton itself is becoming one of the more popular places on the outskirts of downtown Portland. There were about 73 sales in total in 2017 and only 10 homes on the market remained in December. The median price for this neighborhood was $345,500.

Other popular neighborhoods include Central Gresham located east of downtown Portland, Elmonica located in Beaverton, Hazel Dell in Vancouver, and Cooper Mountain, back towards downtown a little further south.

5 Ways to Boost Your Curb Appeal in the Winter

YUCK... It sure is yucky out this time of year. It seems like we haven't seen the sun in months, and it makes it even harder to boost the curb appeal if you're planning or trying to sell your home. But, all is not lost. There are some very clever things you can do to boost the curb appeal even in the winter months when things are wet, bare, and just plain ugly.

#1. Keep it clean.5 Ways to Boost Your Curb Appeal in the Winter

One of the easiest things to do is just keep the front yard looking clean. This means sweeping up any leaves or debris, and keeping a clear pathway to the front door. Keep bushes and plants trimmed away from walkways and stairs so that people can actually see the house. The landscaping may not be that attractive, but you want people to focus on the house itself.

#2. New paint.

You may not be able to paint the entire house this time of year, but if you can paint the trim, repaint the front steps or railing, and repaint the front door with maybe a new kickplate. It can do wonders for the front curb appeal of your house.

#3. Light it up.

You can never have too much light and because we have such dreary days around here and the days are shorter, it could get dark before people can actually view your home. Make sure there's plenty of light living up to the front of the house, along the walkway, and even near the back of the house. Motion sensor lights are great for this.

#4. Use seasonal plantings.

If your local nursery is still open this time of year, see what plants they have available that can add some color to your porch. Chrysanthemums, early pansies, and even some nice greenery can brighten up the front of the house. Put them in a couple of pots and stay with one color so it really gives a dramatic look to the front of the house.

Related: Why trees are great for your property

#5. Thatch the lawn.

Thatching a lawn might not look great for the first week or two, but it will start to fill in once new grass grows. If you're not planning on selling for a month or so, start now by thatching the lawn, planting new seed, and by the time you list, you'll have a nice, green lawn.

There are a few things you can do this time of year and every home is different and unique. If you're planning on selling within the next month, give us a call. Would love to discuss specifics of your home and how to make it shine this time of year for a fast sale.

7 Things You Should Never Keep in Your Basement (or Garage)

7 Things You Should Never Keep in Your Basement (or Garage)

For many of us Americans, the basement or garage can become a catchall for miscellaneous junk, seasonal items, and, quite frankly, things we tend to forget about. About 25% of us can't even fit our cars into our garage. While we might fit a lot of Christmas decorations, old clothes, and photo albums in places where we hardly ever go, there are some things you shouldn't keep in a basement or garage. This is adapted from a recent MSN Money magazine and I wanted to add my own take on the subject. You are seven things you should probably never keep in your basement or garage.

#1. Propane tanks.

Just about all of us have an extra propane tank for our barbecue lying around but it's not a good idea to leave it in an enclosed place. If the tank were to leak and it's near the car, a furnace, or electrical panel, it could be disastrous. If a fire breaks out, and electrical current happens, or a leak that could affect the health of people in the house, it could be fatal. It's best to keep them outdoors, on a flat, stable surface.

#2. Clothes.

I'm mainly talking about natural fabrics here. We usually store our seasonal items in the off-season but the basement or garage is not the best place. Humidity levels are higher in a basement and because it's underground, it doesn't get heated and cooled like the rest of the house. Cotton and linen fabrics can be given a growing mold at 80% humidity and wool and silk will begin to grow mold at 92% humidity. It's best to keep them in a linen closet or even the attic.

#3. Furniture.

The same with fabric, wood furniture can warp in humid conditions. Upholstered furniture can mold, and it's a perfect place for rodents and other pests to take up residence in. If you don't care what happens to the furniture, it's best to donate it otherwise, keep it inside if possible.

#4. Photo albums.

This also goes for important papers and documents such as passports, birth certificates, marriage license, and medical records. It's best to store these in a dry, central location in your home. If you store these in a garage, burglars and other criminals could have access to them and due to the humidity, they could be damaged by mold, mildew, or chewed on by rodents.

#5. Extra firewood.

Unless you have a wood-burning stove downstairs, it's best to keep the majority of wood outside. You don't want rodents, insects, and spiders making their home inside of your home and because homes are typically more humid, it won't do the wood any good either to be in such a humid, wet environment. A tarp on top of an outdoor woodpile is the best way to store your firewood.

#6. A refrigerator.

You might think that the garage is the best place to store an additional or extra refrigerator but it's actually the basement that would be the better option. Basements, although cooler than the rest of the house, do not have to deal with the extreme temperatures the garage might experience. But, there is actually a refrigerator garage kit specifically designed to maintain the proper temperature for a refrigerator in the garage.

#7. Wine.

Especially around the Pacific Northwest, our temperature fluctuations from season to season can be great and it will have on the fact on items such as wine, candles, and electronics. Homeowners insurance policies usually do not cover damage to items from temperature fluctuation so it's important to keep wine, candles and other items in a temperature controlled environment.

Take the seven tips to maintain all of your items in your home, basement or garage at the perfect temperature for safety and damage free storage.

Principal or Primary Residence - What Does it Mean?

You may have heard this term before "principal residence" or "primary residence" but not really understood what it meant. This is usually referred to when talking about capital gains taxes. If you sell a house you can take advantage of the tax exclusion as long as the property is your principal residence. You might think that just because you live in the house it's your primary residence, but that may not always be the case. And unfortunately, there's no real definition provided in the tax code when it comes to capital gains taxes. Even the IRS themselves admitted that it depends on all facts and circumstances in each case including the operability of the taxpayer.Principal or Primary Residence - What Does it Mean?

Most of the time principal residence refers to homeowners that have lived in the property two out of the last five consecutive years. If this is the case, you can usually benefit from the tax breaks available to you. But, it all depends on if you're selling your home as your principal residence. If you've lived in the home for several years and consider it your primary home, there's probably no question. But, if you've moved out of your house and have been renting it for some time you may not be able to claim the property as your principal residence.

Again, the IRS states that "the mere fact that property is, or has been, rented is not determinative that such property is not used by the taxpayer as his principal residence." [Source]

So why does this matter? Well, let's say that you've lived in the home for some time and buying the home is the easy part, selling it not so much. So rather than risk the financial burden of carrying two loans, you decide to rent out the old one or the new one until the old one sells. So, in this case, is it not your primary residence if you decide to occupy the new home instead of the current one you are trying to sell?

Well, the courts have not really upheld that a taxpayer is required to occupy the old property on the date of the sale. They may have to look at particular facts and on a case-by-case basis. If you can prove that you've tried to sell your old house but were unable to do so because of the market, there should be no questions that the home will still be considered your primary residence for tax purposes. However, there is a time limit. If you decide to hang on to the home for several years, you may run out of that grace period. 

Of course, there is also the factor of profit. If you take up to the $500,000 tax exception for married people but you make more than that, you may want to consider doing a 1031 exchange instead to save you any excess taxes above that $500,000. It's important to talk to your real estate agent and your tax professional when deciding on selling a property over a half $1 million.

For more answers to your questions on primary or principal residency or buying and selling throughout Portland and Vancouver don't hesitate to give us a call. We are the team to get things done.
