I have an investor that does this, we can see if you are a good fit. You can rent for up to 5 years, and if you don't buy you get your deposit back.

Go ahead and email me at and we can get the ball rolling. ... more

Hi Mark,

This is always a fairly subjective answer depending on people's opinions, but I'd see about buying near walkable areas and/or areas near public transportation. Many of the areas you'll be looking in have been experiencing great rates of appreciation, and barring any big national/int'l developments or acts of God, I'd expect it to continue to one extent or another. Let me know if you need any further help - I can get much more detailed about investments and advise on the phone or over a meeting.

I have a couple suggestions for you, but would need to know a little more about your specific situation. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Just visit my profile here. All the best! ... more

No homestead tax base here. Taxes are set almost 6 months before you get the bill that is due november 15 but if a house has not been sold for 20 years or more the taxes will be less than a house sold over and over every 3-4 years in the past 20 years. Portland taxes are not re-adjusted when a housevis sold but every 6 years the city of portland appraiser must drive by and evaluate the house. Portland taxes can also go up 3% a year even if values go down. Multnomah taxes are the highest of the 3 counties. Taxes are about $22 per $1000 of assessed value but
Say a $200000 house might have $3800 in taxes to $4800. This fall home owners will see a $200000 house taxes go up at least 10% with the tax vote to pay for schools. There is no short easy answer. Give me a call if you want to talk about investing. These are just estimates because our tax base is so difficult to explain with out set numbers. Tom inglesby, broker, remax

Welcome to my world - In south Florida this is common -

In fact on the beach here in Boca Raton - $850 is on the low side -

Most exceed $1000 -

I am sure you can get the disclosure docs indicating exactly where the money goes and what privileges are included.

In Boca Raton we have many Country Clubs that require $50,000 + to join and then over $1000 per month in "social membership" dues... + hoa... + golf , food and beverage ... + + +

Come it's a lifestyle of your dreams!
