ViewHomes™ of Clark County - Brush Prairie/Hockinson Market Report July

Hocinson Market Report July

We are experiencing an influx of new buyers from outside of the area - mostly for the relatively affordable prices, but also for the quality of life.  Buyers are looking for areas where they can live in the country, but still be close to city amenities like shopping, services, and good schools, Clark County has all of these features.  Brush Prairie/Hockinson is a good example, and we regularly find homes there that meet this criteria.

Hockinson has all the amenities of a rural area - rolling hillsides, tracts of timber land, and large horse pastures. Yet, it is within easy driving distance of metropolitan amenities, including Portland International Airport right across the Columbia River. Combine privacy with the diversity of views, and you have a very popular area for homesites with nature as neighbors. This area is in the highly desirable Hockinson School District.

One unique business neighbors and visitors enjoy is the Hockinson Market. It is located on NE 182nd Ave - basically "Main Street" Hockinson. It has the feel of an old time general store - you can fuel the car, pick up groceries, or sit at the counter for a deli sandwich, pizza, or cold beverage. It even has a tap room featuring local microbrews and cider. It's a handy resource for locals and within about a 10 minute drive from most of the area neighborhoods.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.
