Searching for a home:

Pohl Real Estate is the best way to search for available homes in Portland and around Portland's Suburbs. They have all the MLS data and you can input a price range, square feet, city, and other features you deem necessary. The search engine will bring up all homes for sale in the multiple listing service that meet your criteria. The public likes this search platform the most becuase a user can create their own search criteria and save their searches so it e-mails the user whenever a new home has entered their search criteria. The user can also save individual properties that are their favorites and can easily check on their availability anytime. Pohl Real Estate also took the time to precategorize many of their most popular searches.

FSBO A number of people sell their homes without a realtor and list them as FSBO. If you want to sell your home by itself but want the advantage of letting other Realtor's show your home you can list your home on the Mulitple Listing Service for $600 at Pohl Real Estate. You will need to offer the buyer's agent a minimum of 2.5% commission though. Of course the higher the commission the more opportunities for sale.

Craigs List is another source to use to shop for homes. It is a free service where people can put their homes for sale, or rent.
