Wild and crazy home search the last month, so here's a report from the front lines.  Lots of homes in the $250k-$350k range either needed lots of work, or simply failed to impress either one or the other of this pair - one had to fail inspection to get it removed from the top of the list!  (Validated!)

Ultimately, the place she loved, which seemed a bit small to me, had two other offers over the listed price after just one day on the market, we only got into top position because we had a stellar offer well above the asking price.  Crazy market right now, anything even remotely nice under $300 is a hot commodity.

Had an experience that illustrates some of the advantages of co-housing. I live at Daybreak Cohousing. Last night as I was eating dinner, one of our members knocked on my door with his 1-year-old in his arms. "I have a bunch of groceries that I need to unload and I can't hold him and get the things out of the car." So, I took our little visitor and amused him for five minutes while Daddy got everything unloaded. Then Daddy was back and they went home. Just part of being a community -- help when you need it, close by. I would think that co-housing would appeal to single parents for exactly those reasons -- a built-in support system. There are more than six different co-housing groups in Portland. If you are looking to move to Portland, I think it would be worthwhile to consider co-housing.

Cohousing is a great alternative. For people who are in the midst of thinking about down-sizing, or moving closer to adult children, or getting out of suburbia, co-housing is an alternative that I enjoy, but not that many people are aware of. Co-housing is like a condominium in that you buy your share, but it offers so much more than a simple condominium. It offers community, and the opportunity to live with neighbors who are more like extended family than people who just live next door. I live at Daybreak Co-housing in Portland, Oregon. We have a webpage, if you are interested in more details (www.DaybreakCohousing.org). We have a wonderful new building that is right on the bus line, near the light rail system, and very close to downtown. There are lots of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood, and we are close to hospitals and all the cultural offerings of a big city. It has an urban feel, but lots more greenery than living downtown. But we dont' have the huge commute that comes with living in the suburbs. I think it is a wonderful option. I get the benefit of a big garden, but I don't have the sole responsibility for it. There is a grassy plaza in front of my apartment, but I don't have to worry about mowing it. I have my own kitchen and can cook when I want, but we have about two meals a week, so I have an economical alternative to going out for meals. Great place. It is brand new construction and we still have units for sale.

I am looking for a 5 bedroom house to rent in Southeast Portland starting in September. I prefer Tabor and Sellwood. Anyone hear of anything that's available?
