The selling price was $2,150,000 with the purchaser named as TLM Holdings, LLC. Ted Millar is named as a manager.

A ‘Mixed Bag’
Certain Aurora, Oregon housing figures are mixed, depending on where you live around Aurora. This is because part of the 97002 zip code is located in Marion County and the other part is Clackamas County. This is also essentially where the Portland and Salem markets meet. Depending on where an Aurora home is located can affect school districts and commute times. The good news is that Aurora, Oregon home prices are up, no matter which metric is used.
Housing Inventory Housing inventory can help determine how fast and how high a real estate market climbs. With fewer homes for sale, prices typically rise. With just 1.7 months of home inventory, the Clackamas County inventory figures for Aurora suggest a continued distinctly ‘seller’s market’ in that area of Aurora.

Some may describe it as a “Portland thing.” How else to explain the mad dash by many for the opportunity to buy or sell used airport carpet?
But this Portland phenomena has a distinct Aurora, Oregon link and is making national news. As a result, Aurora, Oregon’s creative connection to the ‘rugged rug’ is helping it morph into near-cult status.
The Portland Airport Carpet Story There were reportedly 32 bids from carpet merchants and other interested parties to sell roughly 13 acres of Portland International Airport’s old carpet. A handful of successful bidders were selected in large part based on their creativity.
Proposals were chosen in accordance with the Port of Portland’s goal of getting it out to “people in the community who want to own a piece of PDX history.” Of the 32 bids, only 4 were selected, and Nagl Floor Covering of Aurora, Oregon was a winner.
