Dated: November 21 2015
With all that we hear in the media about the housing market in Portland & the surrounding areas many people think they just can't afford to buy a home. This is not true. The market is popular & that is great, but that does not mean that affordable homes are not available. With increased demand we have increased supply leveling the market a bit since the incredibly low inventory of just months ago.
