Moreland Branch Meeting 5.27.2014

For your Blog:

Far out and Groovy, Dude! Oregon is the 4th BEST Hippie Friendly state.  I bet you can guess the best hippie CITY in the US! Yes? http://goo.gl/GTUwCC

Our PDX market is really making it tough for renters to become homeowners.  We see it all the time with homes that are ‘first homeowner ready’ – they get purchased by investors. We LOVE our investors, but it ends up Portland being on the Top 10 toughest markets for renters.  http://goo.gl/1rwwaU

Working mom on the west coast? Oregon is the place to be! Oregon is #1 with work-life balance, child care, and professional opportunities. I like that! http://goo.gl/yO06tv
