View Homes of Clark County: Ridgefield Market Report September


Ridgefield Market Report 09.17

If you are looking for a home with some acreage, and a view, you should consider homes in Ridgefield, Clark County, WA. Ridgefield has an inviting small town atmosphere. An easy stroll downtown gives you access to historic landmarks, charming shops, restaurants, a community library and beautiful parks.  The city is finishing a recreational loop system of pathways to connect downtown with neighborhoods, parks, schools, and the waterfront.

Recreation is plentiful in Ridgefield where the National Wildlife Refuge serves as the city's backyard and is a haven for wildlife and nature lovers. You can tour via kayak or canoe along a 21-mile water trail between downtown and the Columbia River. One of our favorite events is BirdFest and Bluegrass - a celebration welcoming the birds back to their winter home. It includes hiking, crafts, food, birding tours, and, of course, music!

We specialize in ViewHomes of Clark County™ and our clients share our appreciation for Nature As Neighbors. A private retreat on acreage provides a serene and calm environment, and there’s room to garden, play with kids or grand kids, and enjoy frequent visits from wildlife. Its “elbow room for the soul." Our clients are thrilled to find the perfect retreat with ever-changing views of the Wildlife Refuge.

Point of Interest: The Cathlapotle Plankhouse, built by more than 100 volunteers during a period of two years, is based on findings from the archaeological site and other historical references.

Wow Debb, it looks like you have very short supply in your market above 400k. Good for sellers and a bit tough on buyers.

You guys are right. We are still in sellers market in  many segments of the housing market. Although, of late, we've noticed a slight pricing correction going on with much of the inventory.

Wonderful profile and snapshot of the Ridgefield market place.  Sorry I am late to comment, we were out of town in Beverly Hills this morning for a meeting, a breakfast with a dear friend and then made it back to our Noon Yoga class.  Happy Wednesday to both of you.  A
