I think new owners more often than not keep their chain link fences. However, three-foot-high chain fences might be a little shorter than you'd desire. If you were to keep your fence with it being that short, I'd honestly upgrade your chain link fence to be more like six-feet-high. That would also help with curb appeal along with the resale value of the home. Hope that helps, Dennis!
If you are having this issue with fraud, it is definitely a good idea to get a real estate lawyer. I think that if you are experiencing these problems with the roof and you weren't told about it, you should definitely get it taken care of. If you can find a good lawyer and talk to the previous owner, hopefully you can get it repaired. I think that you should definitely continue with this case so that you can get it all taken care of. http://www.harrellandwhetstone.com/Practice-Areas/Real-Estate-Law.shtml... more

You have to disclosure any recent boundary surveys when you sell. As long as everything is recorded property with a Title company you are okay. (Of course, talking with an attorney on this matter is recommended.)... more
North Portland is growing popular and has a small downtown area called St. Johns. Many people think it's off the well beaten path, but it's really not. We live nearby and commute to downtown daily within 12 minutes.... more
The easiest thing to do is meet with a broker if you will be buying a property, tell them what you are looking for, including the price limit, and then have them do the work for you.
Also, if you are buying in North Portland keep in mind there are areas and properties which may qualify for additional payment and financing assistance programs.
I am a certified specialist in this area, and would be happy to email you some resources that will help.
You ask an interesting question. However, in deference to the residents of all the "close-in" meighborhoods, it is unethical to answer because all areas have good and bad in all cities. One may check out crime statistics on the internet and thereby choose an area where they wish to live.
While safety is a factor, finding a neighborhood that says, "you are at home" is most important.
I wish you happy hunting in your search. Perhaps I may be able to assist you.

I just did a tour with some clients from Berkley and they were surprised at rent for the areas about $1400-$2800 for rent and not much available. Go to the trulia web site which is a mobil site and you can see all the homes on an area map and they show rentals by price with pictures. Good Luck Tom Inglesby... more
Iâ€™m convinced that all the real estate agents in town have a good idea on the neighborhoods and they can share their own thoughts, as private remarks, when they talk with their clients. The real estate agents cannot â€œstampâ€ neighborhoods as â€œbadâ€ or â€œgoodâ€. As mentioned by my colleagues, a buyer should get in touch with an agent in order to find a nice fit and, also, to do some research, on their own, in the area because thereâ€™s plenty of data on anything/anywhere these days. Your lifestyle, your taste, your family needs and many other factors also can make a neighborhood â€œbetterâ€ than the others even if everyone says the opposite. And, not the last, the better the area the more money youâ€™ll have to spend for the next house so you need to get in touch with a lender too and figure-out what you can afford (I hope youâ€™ve already done this) and to determine if there are chances for you in a â€œbetter neighborhoodâ€.... more
Hi Tracy, please call me at 503-395-8445 as I'd like to receive a media kit for your paper as a possible advertiser. firstname.lastname@example.org ... I have an event coming up in September that I know realtors will want to attend: https://www.facebook.com/events/384837518244241... more
Well Justin, as you can see there is no shortage of opinions and offers to assist. The most productive next step would be for you to provide boots on the ground That way you could actually see some of these neighborhoods we've been tossing out and also check out some of the properties. If you have plans to visit our beautiful corner of the country just let one of us know. ( I, of course, hope you will call me 971-227-4779.) Happy Thanksgiving.... more
Hello Oliver and Sylvia,
First of all Congratulations on your 25th anniversary! Portland is a wonderful place to settle and call a home. No wonder it is in Top 50 places to live. Recently Money magazine placed "Sherwood a small town in Oregon" one of the top 20 livable town in America. Lake Oswego, Westlinn and Mcminville are other beautiful towns famous for its natural beauty. You can also consider living in Portland and visit the neighborhood towns on weekends. During your stay at Portland try driving around these areas and get the first hand experience. I hope you find what you are looking during that week it self. Good luck!
Not sure what you're looking for but be aware tha in Portland your "water bill" covers a lot more than payment for the water you use. My last quarterly bill was $178.25, and only $32.80 was for water usage (on the light side of normal for our 2-person household they told me). $76.12 was for sewer, and the remaining $69.33 was for a variety of other charges ranging from $41.44 for "Stormwater Off-site" to $3.38 for "Portland Harbor Superfund".... more
Thanks Dave. I was hoping to have some questions from readers where i can email a few realtors for their answers and publish them in the paper, giving both sides some publicity...rather than borrowing them from the web. But I think I may have to do that for times sake.
And yes, it is an "old school" newspaper lol. I drop them off at real estate offices-I drop them at your office, but i'm afraid that they might just sit somewhere. I usually put them directly into your mailboxes if possible, but I haven't asked to do that at your office. It's also in over 200 other locations, coffee shops, waiting rooms, New Season's, ect.
I will go to an online version, as soon as i feel like i've got the print paper to where I want it.
Thanks again for the "answer"!! Trulia is a great resource.
There are many great neighborhoods to choose from. The Pearl district is definitely one of them.
Here is a great list of neighborhoods that Portland has to offer with alot of help tips, "walkscore", local places of interest, neighborhood homes/condos for sale and so much more.
