Asked by kayafaras, Portland, OR Sat Mar 30, 2013

My daugher and I are relocating to Portland from out of state so daughter can take advantage of language curriculum at Cleveland HS. Have been online looking via popular rental listing sites for last 3-4 months. Am noticing there is not a lot available, especially for rental homes in that area. Would working with a property manager broaden the horizen?

That might help but we are at about a 3% vacancy rate city wide and it can be tighter depending where you are looking. I heard of some real estate management companies charging a retainer fee to find you a place because they come and go quick. I am not much help but it is hard I know when I try and show out of town clients places since they want to rent for a year and watch the prices go up 15%. I hope you are not trying to rent with a pet since that almost eliminates all places. Good luck to you. Tom Inglesby, Broker, RE/MAX Equity Group
