It could happen to you…

I have a few rentals and for two of them, I pay the water bill. A couple of times in the past I’ve received what I consider freakishly high water bills. The City of Portland has been really good to deal with. They have even sent me a letter pointing out the bill seemed excessive. IF you can get to the bottom of what is causing the problem and you fix it, they will sometimes adjust your past bills – no guarantee but worth investigating. They suggest you turn off all water and then check your meter, if it’s still running you’ve got a problem. It can be a toilet that’s running or a small hole in one of the pipes. All that said, the current problem with my rental has NOT been resolved and the last water bill was $944.00 – ouch!

4th Quarter Economic Report


The fourth quarter economic report from 2018 is out! One of the things I love about Matthew Gardner’s reports is how relevant they are to our area. There is a lot of national news out there that can often be scary, but does it really apply to us? Here’s a look at what our state’s last quarter looked like.

I would love to hear from you. Send me an email or give me a call, and let’s chat!
