Use "Single Family Home" option for searching manually and for any saved searches, make sure any other searches are deleted.

Here's something else to think about: You cannot directly compare the cost of rent to the cost of owning a home on a mortgage payment alone.

Most mortgage calculators ignore insurance and taxes which will be added on. They also can't tell you about maintenance and repair costs. No one can really predict what those will be over the time you own a home. As a renter, you're excluded from all of those costs - except hopefully insurance. Your landlord is paying all of those things. While it seems you're paying more than a homeowner, that's not necessarily true.

If you have all that money saved, why aren't you paying down debts? That will set you up to be better able to afford a house in a couple of years. It might not hurt to have a real lender look at your financial situation including debt, income and overall credit history to suggest ways to further strengthen your position.

Congratulations saving that nice amount of money! The first step for you is to contact a lender - bank or mortgage broker, actually contacting one of each is probably your best route to understand your options.

Once you know how much you can afford, the next step is to find a great Realtor to represent you finding a home and negotiating a great price.

MK answered:
I am finding the exact same issue cheema. We have your exact same situation and preference of next home criteria as well. We had to expand our search south to Tigard, Sherwood and even Newberg (which has beautiful new homes in this price range for way cheaper than if that same home were in Beaverton!). I am actually using Zillow now as I find it very user friendly. And I try to use Redfin as well, because I am told they will get changes and additions quicker then some of the other apps. However, I find it to not be as user friendly as Zillow. Good luck--maybe you have even found another home by now! We have not yet. :( ... more

Hi David

Trulia IS NOT a real estate company - it is basically an advertising site that posts listings supplied by agents all over the country, and includes other paid-for ads. Some of the information here is accurate - a lot of it isn't.

So............Trulia can't help you with your specific housing requirements.
The good news is...........

A Realtor can!

Reach out to a local agent - someone in Beaverton, OR - for help.

If you don't know where to find a local agent, you can try the "Agent Directory" under "Browse" on the green bar at the top of the page. RE companies in Beaverton.

Best wishes.and have a happy holiday!.

Ernie Behrle answered:
As you have really need to have this discussion with your Realtor or his/her Broker in Charge. Personally, my company has no fees and in most cases, in your situation would probably wish you well and walk away. What you are doing is more of a Deed revision than a true sale. The fact that you are giving your ex compensation doesn't remove the other fact that you are probably already listed as a co owner on the deed and therefore already own the house legally. Again, have this conversation with your agent. ... more
