Trulia doesn't have a search option for multi family residences. I would advise you to get in contact with a real estate agent who has experience with purchasing residential investment properties. If you would like, I could refer you to a qualified agent specializing in Portland residential investment properties. Send your contact info to Tjackson@c21mm.com

Good Morning
Sounds odd. Have your loan officer determine exactly what your closing costs will be that the seller is allowed to pay than include your request in your offer. Typically a seller will add the closing costs to their bottom line price so adding too much will raise the price further. The only thing I can think of is if the seller and your loan officer are connected in some way and the loan officer is planning to add closing costs ?? I hope thats not the case. Maybe the agent is looking for a way to raise the asking price knowing that if the money is not used the seller will net more?? Go to Your-Road-Home.com. and read the articles on financing. Will serve you well. Good Luck ... more

You need a buyer's agent looking out for your best interests first. The problems in the past have been with attached homes that the builders were building and the water issues between buildings but free standing homes usually don't have those issues when we were building 5 years ago. When you see the model home ask what are the upgrades? Most models have $20000-$40,000 in up grades and when you have your house built and ask where is the tile you liked then they say that was an upgrade. Be content with what you see and what you get because every change from light switch to out let will cost you money. You might use there lender or at least compare who they are using but usually you cannot beat the builders lender because they want to sell homes for the builder. Good luck to you.

Craigslist is the number one source for rental properties- whether managed by a large company or by the owner. As a high risk tenant, your best bet is to find someone who is not a high risk tenant to co-sign the agreement with you. If you are able, another option would be to come up with a larger deposit an/or offer to pay last months rent up front as well. ... more

You would have to check with the city, but I do not see why not. It would still be two tax lots and you might want to request an adjustment in the taxes if there is no structure or improved value, once you have torn down and removed the old house. If at some time in the future, you could rebuild or sell the lot to someone else. Good luck. ... more

Hi Kntryangel,
It would help to know where you will be working; for example on the east side of town or on the west side. On the west side I would recommend west Beaverton or Hillsboro for acreage and that great country feel. For smaller class sizes, I would pin the area down a little more and also consider the school's overall rating. Let me know if I can show you some properties when you are in town :)
Best,

The price point you are at on the east side of town will not get you what you can get in beaverton. Our market is tight on rentals so if you are moving by march you need to find a place now. In Portland you have to go to the,school in your area, but you are a few years from starting grade school. I think you will be surprised how expensive those three very trendy areas are to live and they are in high demand. Good luck. Tom inglesby, broker remax equity group. ... more

This question totally depends on your budget and long term goals. The Pearl is a great location for Urban living, but it does tend to run a little higher than other locations. If you know this is your lifestyle, then lock in the great prices and low interest rates now. If you are unsure or see changes in the next few years, then you might be better suited renting. There are calculators on Bankrate.com that can also help to guide your decisions from the financial point of view. Good luck. ... more
