Northwest Pals
« on: July 08, 2020, 11:13:33 PM »
Through a few unfortunate setbacks my wife and I are heading back to the NW area in search of greener living.

Anyone have a good bead on cheap housing or tiny homes for sale? 

Whatís the place thatís not burnt out by hipsters?

I don't think 'hipsters' have been a concern for at least a decade. People moving from CA and the Northeast to work in tech have priced many out. But post-Corona who knows how things are going to play out...? I was out towards Mt Hood the other day and thought living in one of those small towns outside of Hood River or White Salmon would be nice... 1 hour from Portland, better weather, quiet, stunning scenery... Lots to skate and loads of other outdoor shit to get into. No idea on rent/ property costs though...

I use to live in Tigard and my wife lived in Milwaukee for a bit.          Itís been 11 years since weíve been back there the rent was at max $1200 for a halfway decent house in the outskirts and a few places around the Loyd center.

 What weíre looking for is real kinda hole in the wall sketchy landlord where you could get away with a few bucks short on deposits  or work off a few bucks for repairs around the property.

Although it sounds like Iím sounding like a bum itís not as I do have quite a bit of capital to talk turkey.  Mainly Iíd want to chat up someone property owner or network myself in a right place right time situation.

Youíve heard of this scenario, Your with a few people who youíre familiar with and someone asks the other about his cabin in the woods like Hey buddy Iím sick of this one place I own wish someone would come and buy this piece of shit off me.

Maybe thatíd be me making a decent offer cash in hand by the next day.

You can still find that in Tigard, Milwaukie and East Portland.

The northwest is a pretty big area so I can only speak for the area of Oregon I live in, but cheap housing isn't really a thing. My roommate owns this house and it was like 120k for 1000 square foot house built in the 40s, on a tiny lot. I live a little further south of Portland closer to Salem or Lincoln City.

My budget is 20k for a tiny house or a piece of property that I put a trailer in.

Did you mean 320k or 420k? Cuz thatís what a 1000 sf fixer upper costs where Iím at.

Itís great here but if I lived elsewhere I wouldnít move here. Especially not if I was looking for greener pastures.

Dang man you serious? WV is cheap to live? Only reason we were going to go put west 420 friendly places and possibly have a place in the surrounding northwest area.

I just got approved for a 600$/month sro in Eugene. It may be more expensive in OR but there are still some cheap places and once you buy a place, your return on investment will be much higher. Also, the skate season here is much longer than the Midwest and east coast.
