Most areas have pet friendly rentals and you'll just have to search for them. The one thing even pet friendlies will want will be a separate pet deposit If looking for a single family home or town home, try searching for local property management companies plus a local real estate company to cover all your bases. Good Luck ... more

I second getting a good inspector or some other dude to come by and get the place cleaned out of mould if you're concerned about it, especially in the storage areas like the basment and the attic. But don't let the mould put you off getting a place that you think could fit your family. Mould is much easier to take care of than looking for a home that you have a connection with. ... more

I believe someone is trying to say flood insurance is not required. With the way FEMA keeps changing their maps - I would say always check into the property further to be sure.

this time of year the leaves are just starting to turn. We get a lot of "San Francisco" weather in the mornings, maybe some low fog, then burns off by about noon, and clear skies. Rainy season is later in the year. Yes it does rain. Head farther north than the "Burg" and it gets even wetter. has lots of great historical info I think too.

Lindsay, I would encourage you to apply, even if you have been denied recently. FHA's "Back to Work" program might be the right solution for you. I live and lend in Southern Oregon, so I'm familiar with the property types, acreage, etc that you will come across. I'm a mortgage broker and a mortgage banker, really, the best of both worlds when looking for a mortgage. Feel free to call my office or apply online at my website. ... more

We had two wells on our property - one produced 1 1/2 gallons per minute and the other 1/2 gallon per minute. It was barely enough for our family in the winter, but in the summer production dropped markedly. What saved us was a 1500 gallon storage tank so that our wells were always being emptied, and when it got too low we had a tank of water delivered and filled up our storage. ... more

Melina Tomson answered:
You would want to hire a buyer agent to help you navigate the market in the area you want to buy. Homes are more expensive in Oregon than people anticipate because all cities have urban growth boundaries. This restricts the supply of land to protect our farms and forests. This creates an inflated cost for land, which gets translated into the home price.

Whether or not you should continue to wait for a great buy in your home state is only a decision you can make. People often have a romanticized notion of Oregon and you sound like you might have that issue as well. Oregon is a very laid back and casual state which is typically why people move here. They are tired of the rat race.

As far as buying the first house you see, not it is very rare. Most buyers look at several homes before making a decision especially if they aren't from this area. You need a buyer agent to help you.

Richard Breglia answered:
I have negotiated many short sales. In very few cases a deal is reached when a second mortgage is involved. From my experience the 2nd is offered 5% of loan amount on average. They seldom accept and just go after the owner after the foreclosure. In some instances when a good real estate attorney is involved and the homeowner is considering bankruptcy I have seen thye 2nd accept. The problem that usually comes up is that the second wants more money then the 1st is willing to approve. ... more
