Kids out of the house, so school district not an issue. Like to be 1/2 hour or less outta town. Need a little room/yard for two greyhounds, 6k SF or larger lot desired....


First post, hope to learn a lot about where to buy, moving from TN to the Portland area early 2011...

Thanks

Scappoose? A little 'outside' the area, no? As far as a commute. My wife is doing 60 a day for and aft now here to work, so kind of looking for maybe less than 15 miles t most, adjusted for volume and traffic, etc...

Honestly, there's not much that matches that price and the requirements. On the other hand, rent for 6 months or a year or so and prices should be even lower. I'm guessing that there are enough desperate landlords that your dogs won't be a frequent deal-breaker.

Scappoose is too far out of the city in my opinion..and that's NOT taking in the traffic jams. Sales of homes have not really bottomed yet. I live in a great neighborhood 25 minutes out of downtown PDX and our home is listed right now for $300K (our purchase price 2 years ago was $410) The rental market is MUCH better here than buying a home right now. You can get exactly what you want where you want it for a good price.

check out craigslist and keep a tap open on google maps but honestly I don't think you'll get a house in portland for that price your best bet would be somewhere in the mid west.

We are going to rent to start for sure. Probably pick out an area/house per what ever gainful employment my wife gets. Not sure what my employment hopes will be.
