How can anyone trust anything that you two are rambling on about. Both of you have information on business website links that are no longer valid.

Most of the Consumers looking to purchase a home for that matter, Can never do so, because the current market is requesting that a consumer make 2 or in most cases 3 times the amount of the current requested monthly charge. So, with the current markets average request of $1495 - $1795 a month - A consumer within their jobs,

must accumulate approx. $4,485 - $5385 a month in total wages in order to even consider moving into any property under the current average market values.

I will say that you are absolutely correct in saying that those values are set to increase in just a short few months, rendering most consumers stuck living back to the recession times. Oregon politicians and the fair housing market need to get together and squash the non-sense. You would make more in returns by changing the values the market needs. Lowering housing costs, offering business a tax credit for the shelling out of personal capitol when needing to re-condition a property with visible residual damage.

And this is coming from a stay @ home dad..Who's also affected by the markets unfair sales values...

Well it's not a big secret, but there have been some serious concerns with the quality of construction of the Brownstone homes. It does depend on the year that it was built some of the earlier homes '95 and earlier were actually very nice homes. As the years have gone on with the boom in real estate, the quality was sacrificed for quantity and speed. Just makes sure that you have a good inspector. A lot of the problems that you may see in the Brownstone homes would have already presented themselves.

These are great little town homes. Especially if you are selecting the smaller floor planes. The closer to the 217 exchange you get the higher the prices. If you push out toward the streets of tanasborne some more you can find exceptional single-family "detached" homes that could yeild a bigger return in the long run. We currently have an over abundance of town homes and condos on the market. Well...we currently have an abundance of everything on the market...If you are buying to live in it and don’t mind how much you could make on it in a couple years. Go for it! Shop around to be absolutely sure, have your own agent not the builder’s office (its free to you) and negotiate a great price. Even new construction is negotiable!

Good luck and remember interest rates are rising lock in a rate if you are serious about buying!
