 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.


 Loan rates remain quite competitive and interest rates are still very reasonable. The surprising reality is that now is the time to buy a home. As rents rise the uncertainty of ones current monthly home expenses are hanging in the balance. Property owners raise rental costs to meet the market demand & these increases can be significant. The benefit of a fixed mortgage is that you now have a steady monthly payment without surprises as you build equity for your future in something that belongs to you. Stop paying someone else's home loan!
