So we're about to move to the Portland area, and I guess what I need is words of wisdom about rentals and neighborhoods. I've been reading all of the threads here about living in PDX. So far based on my reading we're looking at: Hosford-Abernathy, Laurelhurst, Grant Park/hollywood, Mt Tabor, Beaumont, Alameda, Irvington, Clinton, Sunnyside, Southeast Portland, Woodstock.
I have a few other questions: How's the IT market there? Maybe you shouldn't tell me. We're throwing our hats over the fence and just up and moving there, THEN DH will procure a job. He is convinced no one will take him seriously for hiring until he already lives in Portland. Whee! risk! Luckily we'll have the funds from the sale of our current home to slide us through. But hopefully not for long!
Urm, here is what we want to buy (I believe buy) rent: 3+ BR Sunny and bright, near good stuff like lots of homelearners, which I understand can be found everywhere. (We're unschoolers).
I gather the homeschool laws there are great, since there are many homelearners, but can someone tell me the whole bit about homelearning in PDX?
Um, what else should I ask? Other recommended neighborhoods? What county is Portland proper in for Craigslist? I notice the tabs are for different counties.
