HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallRecently a homeowner discovered their beautiful backyard fountain and garden were placed over the lot line onto a neighbor’s property.

The mistake was made years before their purchase and compounded by successive owners over time. Now, the only fix may be tearing out a gorgeous yard.

Knowing what you own, sell, or are buying takes more than looking at fences and shrubs which wander over the years.

A plat map shows the land’s exact location on paper, but usually there are no obvious marks directly on the land.

A good start is a careful read of the plat map and of the land. You may find clues as to how the map and the physical plot of land either line up (or don’t).

If you suspect an “encroachment,” where someone has taken over land they don’t actually own, the next step may be to hire a surveyor to re-locate the corners and tell you definitively where the line is. Encroachments can usually be remedied with some neighborly cooperation, and help from an attorney to do it right.

While additions, yard improvements and water features typically add value to your home, misplaced improvements can cause trouble.

Your Realtor® should be able to help you ask key questions, read the map and the land with you, advise you on your options, find a surveyor and attorney, and disclose properly to buyers if you’re selling.

Done right, good fences do make good neighbors. With a little extra care, you can get it right!

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerAuto safety is of paramount importance — not just for drivers and their passengers — but other vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians on the road.

September is a good time to think about child safety, with kids headed back to school and Child Passenger Safety Week on the horizon.

The Oregon DMV reminds drivers that the speed limit is 20 mph or less in any of the following situations:

· Anytime a yellow light of a school speed sign is flashing

· Between 7 am and 5 pm on school days

· Crosswalks near school grounds when children are present

Don’t pass a stopped school bus! Drivers must stop on the street or highway 20 feet or more from any school bus that has stopped and is flashing red warning lights.

This applies both to vehicles approaching from the rear and from the opposing lanes. All lanes of traffic must stop for the school bus, except in opposing lanes if the highway is divided with a center median. No vehicle may proceed until the bus resumes motion and has turned off the red warning lights.

Every 33 seconds, one child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts.

Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 18-25, is sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Visit its website, safercar.com, to find car seat installation instructions and a search-by-zip-code list of nearby car seat inspection stations.

Safe travels!

DR. NGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburySeptember 4 is World Sexual Health Day. It is a good time to reflect on where we are with female sexuality, here in Portland and worldwide.

In this country, we have sexual freedom. Women across the world are not beneficiaries of such rights. Mutilating procedures are being performed and women are living in fear of death if they cannot prove chastity.

The contrast to what we experience here in the U.S. is striking. We, too, have our challenges. However, much of the media attention for sexual dysfunction is geared towards men.

There are incessant erectile dysfunction commercials on the television, with little attention being aired about women’s struggles and solutions.

Women are sexual too, and need good information about where to get help. This is especially true if we are supporting men to ‘stay in the game’.

We all want to have a fulfilling, mutually satisfying intimate life. My practice is devoted to meeting the needs of women’s health. Sexuality is a part of this.

I offer solutions to help women ‘stay in the game’ too, as a Board-Certified Gynecologist and Surgeon. We do not trivialize problems and we meet women where they are.

Call for a consultation; we take most insurance plans. The first call is the hardest step and we will answer with respect.

EVCOT - Jonathan WisniewskiWhen you’re out enjoying the water with your dog, be aware of the signs of cyanobacteria, which can make pets fatally ill.

Cyanobacteria (better known as blue-green algae) grows in nutrient-rich warm water. It prefers stagnant water sources like lakes and reservoirs. The algae typically blooms in late summer months, from July through September. It can also be found in marine environments, though it’s rare. This was noted in Rio de Janeiro just prior to the Olympics.

The main route of transmission involves ingestion (drinking water), but smaller amounts can be absorbed through mucous membranes such as gums, tissue around eyes or the rectum.

There are many types of cyanobacteria, but three general classes of toxin are reported: 

· The first causes liver failure and clotting problems. Clinical signs include lethargy, vomiting/diarrhea, weakness, pale gums, hemorrhage and bruising.

· Two types of neurotoxin cause irreversible injury of brain cells and lead to seizures. Early signs of neurotoxins include drooling, excessive tearing, urination/defecation. When seizures occur, the pet is unlikely to survive. Treatment of neurotoxin involves seizure medications, fluids and supportive care.

Clinical signs often develop very shortly after exposure (as soon as 30 minutes after exposure of a large enough dose) and are often rapidly fatal.

Preventing exposure is key. If you’re out at a river, lake or park and there are blue-green algae advisories marked, stay out of the water and do not let your pets drink the water.

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishWhen you are looking to invest your hard-earned money into real estate, make sure that the community in which you settle down has a strong school system.

It is no secret that behind most, if not all, successful academic institutions (public or private) is a strong group of supportive citizens and financial backers who desire and even demand excellence.

So it is here in Lake Oswego, we as a community have benefitted from the foundation that a quality education provides, protecting community peace, promoting achievement in life, lifting our pride and stabilizing real estate values.

Our schools continue to excel and are the backbone to our stable and strong real property values. We must continue to invest in our school system just as we invest in our homes. 

It’s a fact that home values in Lake Oswego are full percentage points higher and more stable than some of the surrounding communities. We are lucky to live where do and we must not lose sight of that fact!

DR. CHARLES BRANEN - Lake Grove DentalThere’s no question that regular brushing, flossing and dental checkups can help keep your mouth healthy. But if you fall short on your hygiene routine, can gum disease actually cause heart disease?

Common sense would say to pay attention!

Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is an inflammatory disease caused by a bacterial infection. The gums and bone structure that support the teeth begin to disintegrate and eventually bone loss occurs. 

By the time your dental office can detect this in your mouth, the disease has already become systemic and the lining of the blood vessels in your body are inflamed.

“There are a vast number of studies linking periodontal disease to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, dementia and cancer” says Dr. Susan Maples. 

Research has shown that treating the gum disease has lowered some of the markers related to cardiovascular problems.

Gum disease and heart disease share risk factors such as smoking, age and diabetes, and both contribute to inflammation in the body.

Although these shared risk factors may explain why diseases of the blood vessels and mouth can occur simultaneously, some evidence suggests that there may be an independent association between the two diseases.

To keep gum disease at bay:

· With a soft toothbrush, brush teeth twice daily and with fluoride toothpaste

· Clean between teeth daily with floss and/or an interdental cleaner

· Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks. Avoid acidic beverages: energy drinks, soda, juices

· Visit your dentist regularly for oral examinations and professional cleanings

PETROFF CENTER - Dr. Mark PetroffYou see beautiful facelifts on a regular basis – either in person or on TV – but you don’t realize it because they are virtually undetectable. You only hear about the facelifts that went wrong.

What makes the difference? The choice of physician. That’s because there are as many ways to perform a facelift as there are surgeons.

Besides being an artist with a keen interest in design and architecture, Dr. Petroff has dedicated his career to facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. He has been in practice for more than 25 years and studied under some of the most prestigious surgeons in the field.

Under his care, you can be assured that you will still look like yourself after your facelift, only 10 to 15 years younger. Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift rejuvenates the mid- to lower face and neck. It can correct:

· Midface sagging

· Deep creases under the eyes

· Deep creases between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds)

· Jowls due to loss of muscle tone

· Sagging/excess areas of fat

· Loose skin and fat under the chin and jaw

Many patients return to work by the second week. Our medical spa staff will assist you with makeup camouflage, lymphatic drainage facial massage, and ultrasound treatments.

One of the main advantages of Dr. Petroff’s facelift technique is that it can last 10 or more years.

Call Petroff Center today to schedule your facelift consultation.

DRNGYN - Dr. Nancy SalisburyAfter recovering from breast cancer, women typically want to “live life to the fullest,” celebrating their triumph over the disease and the joy of feeling healthy again.

Pleasurable sexual activity is a vital part in the process. However, many women report having less sex after treatment than before their illness.

MonaLisa Touch, a recently introduced outpatient vaginal laser treatment, is designed to relieve sexual discomfort due to vaginal dryness after menopause or cancer surgery.

My clinic, DrNGYN in Lake Oswego, is one of a few clinics offering this treatment in the Portland area.

Lubricants and hormonal cream are the standard treatments for vaginal dryness and pain after menopause. Those who choose not to use hormones, including cancer patients and survivors of cancer, need an alternative.

Lovemaking after breast cancer can feel like sandpaper or broken glass — or be impossible. It is supposed to be pleasurable for everyone involved.

MonaLisa Touch is an office-based, noninvasive treatment in which a CO2 laser probe is placed in the vagina to administer 360-degree micro-injuries (“micro-puffs”) that act on the mucosa-stimulating biosynthesis of new collagen growth and tissue regeneration.

The procedure takes 5 minutes and women feel no pain. Three treatments, six weeks apart, cost $2,400 and are not covered by insurance. Over 95 percent of patients are satisfied and there is no risk. The process is FDA-approved.

Breast cancer survivors have enough challenges. Helping ease the way of "sexuality after breast cancer" is something we do here. We will meet you where you are.

HARNISH PROPERTIES - Justin HarnishQ. I’m thinking of buying into a community with a Homeowners Association (HOA).

What are CC&R’s and what are some examples of rules that HOA members must adhere to?

A. CC&R stands for Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. These are written and recorded policies and codes that govern the neighborhood. Examples include restrictions on house colors, roofing material types or even how many cars can be parked on the street. Other rules may prohibit changing your landscaping or leaving your garage door open for an extended period of time.

Q. What do monthly HOA fees typically pay for?

A. Monthly dues go toward maintenance of common areas such as landscaping; exterior building maintenance like window washing or painting; and interior maintenance for features such as elevators. Many HOA’s cover some utilities like water, garbage and natural gas.

Q. How can I tell whether an HOA budget is well-funded and can handle future repairs?

A. When buying into an HOA community, it is your broker’s job to obtain the last 6-12 months of the HOA minutes, financials and CC&R’s. Carefully review these to ensure the HOA is healthy, has reserve funds for repairs and unforeseen contingencies so you are not caught in an assessment!

Q. How can I find out whether HOA fees will go up in the near future?

A. You may call the HOA president. The details are typically spelled out in the monthly meeting minutes, as this would be part of ongoing discussion and plan that the officers would discuss and record.

LAKE GROVE DENTAL - Charles Branen, DMDBelieve it or not, babies are born with all of their teeth. 

The primary “baby teeth” are hidden in the gums and don’t peek through until about 6 months of age.  Even before that first tooth emerges, it is important to remember that from healthy gums come healthy teeth. 

Running a washcloth over baby’s gums after eating helps keep harmful bacteria away. Always take the bottle away after baby is done drinking and don’t put baby to bed with a bottle.

The ADA recommends a baby’s first visit occur at one year, but another common rule of thumb is about six months after the first tooth has emerged. 

The first visit is usually a quick “get to know us” visit, a ride in the chair, a peek in the mouth to do a visual check, instructions for parent and child about good homecare and what to expect, and a cursory cleaning, if the child is happy and allows it.  This is all about forming a good relationship and trust.

For homecare, brush the teeth two times per day with a soft child’s brush with water up until two years of age.

When the child is able to spit, toothpaste can be introduced, but no more than the size of a small pea. 

Chat with us first about using fluoride toothpaste or supplements.  By three years, your child should visit the dentist every six months for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.

VIC'S AUTO CENTER - Mike KeelerNo one wants to find out their brakes are gone the hard way — by losing their brakes and colliding into a tree.

First things first:

· You need to have your brakes seriously looked at once per year.

· Your brake fluid should be changed every two to three years.

So, what are the signs that your vehicle’s brakes are veering toward failure?

Don't ignore your antilock brake system (ABS) light when it pops up on your dashboard. It could mean there's a wiring or electrical problem.

Listen to your brakes. Squealing or grinding noises are signs that your brake pads are wearing thin.

Brake pulsation when coming to a sudden stop or after applying the brakes for a long time isn’t a good sign. That typically means the rotors are warped, which can be corrected by putting them on a lathe and machining them smooth.

Be wary of excess drag while you accelerate. Rust may have built up on your emergency brakes, which leaves them "on" even when the lever's down.

When your car pulls from to the side, you have frozen brakes, brakes that are out of alignment, or fluid leaking on the brake pads or shoes.

Stopping distance — When your car takes longer to stop than you're used to, you may need a brake adjustment, new brake linings, or a replacement power booster.

If your brake pedal seems soft or spongy, there may be excess air in the brakes. Your mechanic can release the air through "brake bleeding."

HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Mike HallOf course there's seasonality in home sales. But let's ask exactly WHAT it is that's seasonal? 

Ease of showing homes may be the biggest seasonal difference. Days are longer, shorter, wetter or drier. Holidays and school cycles happen.  Total unit volumes peak in summer while days are long and school is out.  No surprise.

 

Having a Realtor® with a great handle on specific numbers (like volumes, inventory, or average days on market) for your market segment can drive a great deal or just a mediocre one.  But focusing on this alone can trap you into thinking your OPPORTUNITY is seasonal.  It's NOT. 

 

Stats and averages don't speak to individual motivations. In a way, the numbers don't matter. Instead, individual buyers and sellers, and their particular motivations are what matter most. Buyers and sellers continue to come and go in the market all year long. 

And it's worth noting that someone buying or selling in December is often highly motivated, more ready to sell or buy than fair weather folks touring in July for sport. While total inventory, active buyers, and number of sales will surely decline in the fall, it's no matter if you find the ONE person for your home, or the one perfect house to make home.

 

In the “off” season, when both inventory and buyers wane, call it a wash.  Motivations and opportunity are up!  The bottom line is, sell or buy when YOU are ready.
