FAQ for Home Buyers

Answers to Your Questions About Buying a Home

Getting Started

I’m relocating to Portland. Where should I live?

There are so many amazing neighborhoods and communities in Portland and the surrounding area. Where you decided to settle will depend on your unique needs, interests, and desires. Do you want to walk to coffee, dinner, and shops?  Do you want to walk to hiking trails and parks? Are schools most important right now?  Elementary or high school?  Is your commute or desire to have little or no commute your priority?

I’m moving from out of state. Can you help me buy a home remotely?

Yes! Working with out-of-state buyers is one of our specialties. When you talk to one of our experienced brokers, we’ll learn more about your timeline, budget, and the other factors that will help us identify the perfect property for you. We will explore which neighborhood in Portland will meet your goals and objectives around where you live.
