We sell Portland New Construction, Townhouses, and Single-Family Homes

Portland New ConstructionPortland New Construction is extremely desirable right now and newer homes in close in neighborhoods are becoming more prevalent. You get all the benefits of living in a close-in NE or SE Portland neighborhood coupled with having the convenience of a new home. Close in neighborhoods provide excellent schools, shopping, dining and entertainment nearby while being minutes from Downtown by car or public transportation. Portland is also an extremely walk-able city with great public transportation and lots of public art.

We work with builders in Portland that are constructing single family homes, townhouses and condos that really fit the neighborhoods. There are several projects in the works that will be coming on the market soon and others that we have currently listed.

As the owner of PortlandDuplex.com, I have been watching, studying and selling duplexes in Portland for the past 10 years. Multifamily property is a stable investment that offers reasonable returns and potential for appreciation.

Hello Brian, You may remember us. You were our agent when we purchased a condo at North Park Lofts several years ago. We are thinking about selling and wanted to speak with you.

I am likely relocating to Portland from San Francisco within the next two years. Could be sooner, could be later. I am looking for something less than $125,000. Maybe a short sale. I have seen some two bed short sales for this amount or less. Any ideas or advice? How should I approach this? I own a condo in SF now valued at $425,000, owe $212,000. Thanks. Terence

Is the Benson Towers near the Esplanade and the Strand condos? I was down in that area today and liked it. What would a 1 or 2 bedroom go for? Same question applies for the Meriwether West. Thanks

Which condos have HOAs that allow all breeds of dogs with good manners?

March 02, 2012 15:25
Brian Porter said:

Hi Sue, This is a great question. I wish I had a good answer for you, but I don't. Some condos will exclude certain breeds and other condos will put a weight limit on the pets allowed. I have never seen a list of condos that will allow all breeds; I have only been able to get this information on a case by case basis.

Hi, i have just started the process of looking for a single family home in the Portland area (including Beavorton, Happy Valley, Cedar Mill, etc). I would like to work with someone who can help me with this. To be honest, I will be relocating from overseas to Portland in the near future. So it will make the home shopping process a bit more challenging. Anyhow, I will be in town in late Oct for couple days just to see the area. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity to you, let me know how you would suggest to take this further. Here are some of my criteria for the house: -at least 4 bedrooms house -in good school district as I have 2 kids (2 and 4 now) -house which is no more than 3 years old or brand new house I have not decided to exactly which part of Portland is my final place. I am open to advice for professional like you. Looking for area which is family oriented, safe, and have good school district. The best way to reach me is through email. You can reach me at my overseas mobile number, but the 15 hours time zone difference will just make communication a bit more difficult. However, you can chat with me through Whatsapp as well. Tel: +853 6613-xxxx Look forward hearing from you, Best regards, Paco

Thank you for reaching out to me via my website brianporter.com I will be very happy to help you find a nice, safe, family oriented home in Portland. From the criteria that you have mentioned, I think NW Portland (Forest Heights, Bethany and Rock Creek) would be good options for you. I think that Beaverton and Hillsboro should also be considered. Are you going to be working on the west side of Portland? I will send you some listings in a separate email for your consideration.
