Protecting renters, not landlords, the right call for Portland: Guest opinion
By MARGOT BLACK AND STEVEN GOLDBERG. But numbers are not the same thing as facts and rarely tell the whole story on their own. While acknowledging the stories of staggering rent hikes, the Oregonian otherwise completely dismissed the compelling evidence in support of the relocation policy offered by attorneys, landlords, developers, policy makers, community leaders, and service providers. To ignore these stories and instead rely on a single unverified and decontextualized data point to make a case that the relocation policy may be doing more harm than good is grossly irresponsible   Read More ...

Want to be a landlord? These are the top markets this fall for investing in rental homes
High prices and a tight supply of houses for sale are not exactly the best mix for homebuyers, but they're even worse for investors looking to become landlords.

The good news is, as always, all real estate is local, so while the national picture may look bleak, certain local markets still offer lucrative options   Read More ...
