You should have a radius search done that will direct you to homes within a certain number of miles from OHSU, with spacific criteria entered for the search. Any homes matching your criteria (square feet, type of home such as single family, condo, loft, price range etc) will come to your inbox via email. This will save you a lot of time doing searches. If you would like a source to search from my web tools are the best in the industry, with features such as a Market Tracker (will give you a 3 year trend Report monthly) based on specific address, Home Finder with your own secure login, allowing you to save your favorite searches, and more. check out the link below. You can email me through that site if you like with specific questions. You can also check my quality service rating at http://www.qualityservice.org. This is a rating given to me via survey of my past clients from data collected by an independent research firm. They post all results for the public to see. I hope you'll check these available free services out and see how they can be of great benefit to you

Your price range will dictate how close you can get to OHSU. This is an expensive area both in terms of homes and condos. We do have a glut of condos in the South Waterfront district which is walking distance to the tram. The zip code for OHSU is 97201 and 97239, most of the search engines (including my site) will allow you to search by zip. Commute costs are starting to play a big part in the monthly budget. Gas in Portland is currently $3.35/gallon.

Hello. This is a difficult question to answer without knowing a bit more about A) what you're looking for (home size, number of bedrooms, house vs condo, wants/needs, etc.), B) your price point. Close is also a relative term, but you'd probably want to initiate your search with a broad search of SW Portland, NW Portland (Nob Hill, The Pearl). If you're looking at a condo, anywhere in downtown (SW Portland) would be very convenient. If you're looking for a house, you can travel south along Barbur Blvd from downtown while remaining technically in SW Portland. Again, price point is going to be a critical component here. The hills above OHSU are spectacular, but along with the spectacular views comes spectacular prices.

I'd love to be more specific. If you'd like you can email me at jesse@therealtynetwork.net with some of your parameters and I can help get a search started for you.

Good luck!
