We are moving to Portlnd. Wanted: rental max $1400 min. 830 sq ft 2 carspaces. Easy access MAX/ restaurants. Which areas/buildings do you recommend?

Asked by Denise, 78704 Wed May 9, 2012

For us it's important to live in a safe neighborhood, a light apartment/condo, nice area to be in for the evenings to get a bite or drink a glass

You are ok on price and the location close to MAX to pay that amount for rent. The closer to downtown Portland the rent goes up to $2 a foot. It is really hard to give you specific areas because that is so broad. Rents are tight and the land lords have many renters looking to rent. Good luck to you. Watch out for scams on line work with a mangagment company and don't send a deposit to anyone to hold a property. Good luck to you.

Thank you Tom, at the moment I am already checking out some apartmentbuildings online. Like in Goose Hollow ( Celia Apartments) and downtown St. James apartments. Can you suggest some others? Which other areas besides these might work for us?

I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings but this article just appeared in one of our local papers detailing the difficulites of renting in Portland. My recommendation would be to consider a purchase.

That's indeed not encouraging.... we don't know enough about Portland to make a purchase at this time. We first like to experience the city and find out which area we would like to be living for a longer time. We need to commute daily to Hillsboro,If we choose to look outside the downtown/Goose Hollow area (BUT easy access to MAX ) which area might also work for us?
