Hello, the Portland Metro area also includes Vancouver WA which sits just across the river from Portland. On the Washington side of the river you can typically get more bang for your buck. I happen to be licensed and active in both states in order to make it easy for buyers to be able to work with a single agent. I would be happy to help you!
Very few agents in this area do both property management and real estate sales. I would not recommend making that one of your criteria in your search for an agent. There are some good property managers that I can refer you to.
I agree with what many other agents have suggested... avoid condos/townhouses! Not only do you have very little control (1 vote) in the HOA you run the risk of litigation with the HOA. Unfortunately, I see this happen all too often. A couple of members of the HOA start having issues (water intrusion, etc) then the HOA decides to sue the builder... then when the lawsuit is filed NONE of the units in the Condo/Townhouse complex can be financed. The units become Cash only sales until the lawsuit is settled. That does terrible things to the property values (often for years) within the complex.
