I see a handful of houses in your price range that you should probably review. Contact a local Realtor and I'm sure they can help you find what you are looking for. Or email me and I'll send you what I found.
Good luck and have fun!

I've been showing in the $250k and under range to a couple of buyers regularly lately and I'm surprised as to the number of choices in good neighborhoods that we have! I agree with Tom, you need to sit down with a trusted real estate advisor and brainstorm your basic housing needs, willingness to commute, your desires and wish list to see what neighborhoods match. If you know Portland, you can go to my excellent property search site at http://www.fabulousportland.com and choose your favorite 'hoods and get a daily e-mail with properties that match your search. If you don't know P-town, then it's time to connect with a professional Realtor and start determining what locations would be suitable. There is no "right or wrong" in real estate, its what feels like home!!!

All these things go into a decision on a house value and location. Location is what drives the price up and that also helps when you sell. In Portland inside 82nd the market it hot in this price range because you are under the average sales price for homes. the first time buyers are out in force and I have been in on 3 offers with 14 offers on 3 different homes this week and many last week. If you are a first time buyer you have to have an offer on a house by Oct 15th if you are going to get closed by Nov 30 to get the tax credt and this is what is pushing the market but first time buyers are always buying when rates are this low it gives them more buying power this year over last year.
