Green Living How can it already be August??? Summer is slipping away, but there is still time to enjoy the sun and the wind in your hair. I personally like to take walks. I love living in a city with lovely neighborhoods, parks and walks galore. My husband likes to hike and also loves to bike. Portland is at the forefront of making […]
Homeowners If the earth moves, are you ready? Well, let me just say if the big one hits, I am certainly not prepared! We have a cabin at the beach, and years ago, I haphazardly put together a few things in case there was a tsunami. I would get no gold stars, but it is better than nothing. Considering the recent earthquake in […]

Mortgages Bridging the gap… Okay, let’s just say you own your home and you want to move: bigger house, smaller house, etc. Let’s also say you don’t have enough money set aside to buy your new place without selling your current home.

Homeowners Now I understand… I am in the middle of selling a duplex I have owned for over 25 years. Even though I am very familiar with the process, I am having another agent represent me. I really do believe having someone else negotiating for me is in my best interest. It has also been a great experience for […]
Portland Neighborhoods Portland real estate activity “The Portland metro area saw mostly gains this April, with new listings leading the way,” according to the Regional Multiple Listing Service’s Market Action report. There was a 5.5% increase in listings over April 2018 and a 20.1% increase over March 2019. “This was the strongest April for new listings in the area since 2010.” Interested […]
Home Maintenance 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. […]

Homeowners Real estate: where are we now? Good question and does anyone really know for sure? What I can say from observation is: houses are staying on the market a little longer and there are more price reductions and fewer multiple offers.
