If you find a house to buy in NC before the close of your home in PDX you will write into the contract that funds are coming from the sale of your current home. It may take a few days for the funds to clear in your bank account. I suggest letting the title and escrow company help with the exchange. ... more

Yes. There are several ranch style homes with a beautiful view in Happy Valley. In order to have a view in Happy Valley, you need to be up on the hill overlooking the valley. Verlie Street is one of the streets up on the hill in Happy Valley. ... more

There are rules about renting on some first time buyer programs. You should check with
Your accountant about being able to rent house out and take mortgage deduction. You have to live in a house the last 3 out of 5 years to not pay tax on any profit. Even though you fixed it up there is not a dollar in dollar out usually figure a few years. Rates are going to go up so waiting to sell in a year rates are going to be higher and it will be more difficult for buyers to qualify for a loan. If you could get a great renter it might be worth it but if the renter makes your house dirty it might cost more to fix up and sell latter. You are in a tough spot. Good luck to you .

Hello Alisa,

Happy Valley schools are very good schools, (being that I am raising my two childern here in Happy Valley, makes me a little bias (-;

Being that you have an RV, I would suggest South if Sunnyside. The new construction is all throughout Happy Valley but mainly on the North side of Sunnyside, small lots and not room for your RV. Whereas the south side has 1990's and older homes for resale that would have larger lots.

Shoot me an email and I can send you a few that I have in mind.

Definitely talk with a lender, I am almost positive you would need to have some sort of income coming in now to be considered towards repayment of the loan, but I am not a lender. I direct all of my financial questions to Steven Seim at Director's Mortgage. He will take the time to educate you while answering you questions.

Hope this helps!

Maybe you can find your answer by inquiring here:

or here:

Center for Health Statistics

Phone: 971-673-1190

Fax: 971-673-1201

I don't know if those stats are going to be readily available. And I'm not quite sure how weddings are related to this real estate web site, except that I took a stab at answering this because I am also a florist specializing in weddings (a little known fact among my Real Estate colleagues). I do know you can go to the county and see the records but you would have to go through them individually and count each one separately if a Happy Valley address was given to see how many HV residents were married. Simply because a marriage license was obtained in Clackamas County it doesn't mean they married or settled in a particular area. They could be married anywhere in the state. I don't know how you will find out the answer to that question, but maybe Oregon Vital Records can help. The contact details are above. Happy research!

Hi Jen I am REMAX Realtor & work with many buyers & sellers in the Happy Valley & Clackamas areas. I have a lot of information on the Taralon subdivision & know an executive that works at Legend Homes that lives in Taralon & selected to have his own home built in there. He is very up to date on what is happening in the subdivision. Let me know if you have had your questions answered or if you have any other questions & can see about knowing the most current information with the Chapter 11 on Legend Homes & how Taralon is coming along. I did just here thru word of mouth recently that the townhomes that were planned to be built on the front side of the subdivision across from the model homes are possibly going to begin breaking ground this spring.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The volume of 2br sales in Happy Valley is very low in any given period. Our historical data includes a $7.2 million transaction in 2005 for a 2br property. With the low sales volume in the area, this transaction is skewing the summary data and chart. We've asked our data provider to verify the accuracy of this particular transaction. Thanks again for the information,

Chris @ Trulia
