97206 Still Hot. Why’s Everyone Selling?

According to the Portland Business Journal, 97206 is the hottest zip code in Portland. Or at least of those that count, because Beaverton/Aloha and Forest Heights/Bethany don’t. (They’d be numbers one and two for most homes sold in the second quarter of 2015.) Coming in at number three is the nine seven-two-oh-six, which, again, pretty much puts us atop the list. (Sorry Aloha and Bethany, wherever you are.)

The only question is: why is everyone selling? Ok, we know you all see dollar signs, but what’s better than living off of Foster? Suckers….

    Older people dying off and estates selling the asset?

    I recently bought a home in 97206 and in the past few months of living there have seen lots of for-sale signs on my street and prices go way up. Hoping that’s a good sign for the neighborhood and means more retail (grocery store, please!) and amenities will follow.

    Great lots of new customers for the new Dominatrix Dungeon opening next to Pussycat’s.

    Unfortunately, the Red Light District strengthens…ARGH

    • Wait, what…the Dungeon going public? They’ve always been there, are they opening to outsiders?

      • Alex says:

        They closed for a while (I think) and became a self proclaimed art gallery. Then ran as a studio for making adult films (this is an assumption we’ve made, you’d make it too if you saw the weird folks/props going in and out of there on a daily basis). Yesterday they had a sign up that said something about “Whips n’ Chains Special”. The building was “for lease” a few weeks ago. The guy at Taco Chavez, right next-door, said he wanted it to expand his restaurant but someone beat him to it (no pun intended).

        So we got a sweet line-up on this stretch: pussycats, fantasy land, devils point, seductions, and now the dungeon
