Welcome to YOUR Portland Neighborhood Community

Hi everyone. Moving to Portland early August. Any suggestions on finding a place to live? Have been reading about the various neighborhoods and it looks like there is a ton of variety. Any help is appreciated!

Susannah are you interested in findings roomates? I and my wife would be interested in sharing rent costs with the right non smoker. We are looking at the Bridlemile area in SW. We will be arriving in Portland at the same time you will. If you have any interest send me a message.

Think I need my own space. But I found that putting an ad on Craig's List Housing Wanted generated several replies about sharing space or renting rooms.
That's a good idea since our goal is to keep our costs down till we find work.
Hi Susannah,
I just moved to Portland myself from Boulder, CO.

I like it a lot here.

I can only recommend the Hawthorne District since I've only lived here a month but I love it.

What I figured out is that in the Hawthorne area between Division and Belmont and 30th - 42rd st seems to be the sweet spot, being close to everything. Coffee shops, Groceries stores and the Hawthorne downtown hang out.

Also the Hawthorne Youth hostel is awesome and could be a great place to hang till you find the right place.

If your looking to make friends, do something fun when you get here in August.

It's a dinner in the pitch dark I'm producing where all the waiters are blind.

It's a fund raising event with food, music and education.

As little I know about Portland I would be open to answering any questions you have about moving here. Just give a call.

blessings and good luck.

Hi Susannah,

Tell me more about you and what you like...if you could choose, what would you would want in your neighborhood? There are SO many options here that its hard to tell you where to start to look until I know more about you and your personality, likes and dislikes.

For instance, I live close to organic groceries, can bike to downtown in 15 minutes, have indie coffee shops close by, etc etc.
I know there are so many choices there it's really confusing. Want a nice safe area close to public transportation. Love the Max. Walking distance to stores, coffee, etc. Trees, nature, nice area to walk. Seems like further away from center of the city is a little cheaper. Would love to have something lined up when I go there early August.
If you don't mind being quite in Portland, say a few feet across the line in Milwaukie, I can recommend Waverley Greens Apartments. My wife and I are soon to move back to the Portland area after a year and a half in Albuquerque, and we hope fervently to move back to Waverley Greens. The staff are great, the apartments are nice and spacious, and the maintenance personnel are courteous and prompt. We hope to have a home there again.

Good luck with your move!
thanks for the info. I am definitely discovering that rents are cheaper a little further away from center of the city.
