Portland Blog: This Week in Portland June 27 - July 4

We were over at the RED E cafe on Killingsworth last night enjoying a slew of Coava Coffee Roasters single origin double espressos, Broken Halo IPA (how many...?) a DJ and a really great Portland crowd. It was the RED E's launch party to celebrate their newly opened cafe on the very up and coming Killingsworth Street. The RED E is right next door to another recently opened and very cool business, Saraveza. If my business could neighbor any other business, it would definitely be a bottle shop with over 300 labels and killer food. If you ever go, you must have the 'stuffed jalapenos'. Insanely good, I tell you!

A flurry of activity at the RED E:

The weather looks divine-- enjoy your weekend! Oh yeah, your bike called. She wants to go for a ride!

The fun and quirky Alberta Arts Neighborhood

If you haven't been to Alberta Arts, you're missing a whole mini universe that exists only in this long stretch of neighborhood blocks in NE Portland. Alberta is home to the famous Last Thursday which brings people from all over the city and the 'burbs for a crazy urban night of arts, crafts, beer, wine, people on tall bikes and stilts and more. Alberta is grungy, organic, and strangely newly glam in some areas with spendy little boutiques you might think should relegated to Lake Oswego but somehow, it all kind of fits. I enjoy walking all the way up to 30th or so and then back, snapping a few shots here and there. Alberta street is ever changing and in ways, always seems to stay the same unlike its much compared to Mississippi Avenue which is looking more and more like the upscale Pearl District every day with the intro of condos, very expensive home decor shops and new construction that neighborhood folks bemoan as 'too LA'.

Learn more about Alberta Arts in our neighborhood profile. Also, read about Mississippi Ave and The Pearl District.

If you are new to Portland or considering a move to Portland, you'll definitely want to check out our book, a Weekend Guide to Portland.

Hosford-Abernethy Neighborhood Report by Ross Seligman

The Hosford-Abernethy Neighborhood is a beloved part of SE Portland and, indeed, what many people think of when they think of SE. Bordered by the Willamette River and SE 30th between SE Hawthorne and SE Powell, Hosford-Abernethy includes the vibrant and evolving Clinton Street (midnight Rocky Horror showing at the Clinton Street Theater anybody?) and the breathtaking rose gardens of Ladd's addition. With a rich assortment of restaurants, streets bursting with character, and gorgeous homes - all within walking distance - Hosford-Abernethy is a jewel of the SE. As usual, to experience more, I will refer you read the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood profile.

In my monthly Portland real estate report, I always talk about how each individual neighborhood is a micro-market. If you are looking to buy or sell in a particular neighborhood, the most crucial information that you need to know is what is going on in that neighborhood. In this situation, the overall Portland market report is less important and the national real estate report is just about useless. This posting is a real estate report for the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood of all homes in all price ranges. Feel free to request particular neighborhoods in which you are interested in buying or selling and I am be happy to do a report.

The first thing you will notice about individual neighborhoods as compared to the overall Portland reports are that the numbers can be wildly different month to month. Basically, the bigger the pool of data you are working with, the smoother the stats become. As we focus on smaller areas, many different things can happen month to month.

Read the rest of this report by local Portland Realtor and Ecobroker, Ross Seligman.
