A Fair Warning to all who think Oregon is a great place it's not. The rent price here is outrageous people gouge you for every dime. I make 5,000 a month my roommates makes 2-3,000 combined yet you can't qualify for a house. renting they want first month, last month, pet rent, pet deposit, pet insurance, rent insurance its a god damn nightmare.

Most people you will rent from have drug issues and or want sex in exchange for a living space. they don't want you to have guests over and they expect you to clean their house when they mess it up.

If you are single this is not the place to meet anyone unless your gay. don't try and have your own opinion about something otherwise you will be shunned.

be prepared to never have a parking space or for tow trucks to illegally take your car. Got a bachelors degree good starbucks, dutch bros, and other coffee houses are ready for you to struggle through life, that's right they don't do dick in Oregon esp Portland.

The Homeless issues here is crazy people live in RV's all around the less side of town why because average rent here is 90% of your average income. You can't buy a house wealthy people from other states come in out bid you and flip it or turn it into a rental that they can charge way too much for.

the average home being rented requires 4-5 roommates paying ungodly amounts for rent. try 700-900 per person per room with limitations of another country like no smoking, no parties, no pets no more then 2 cars, no trump supporters yes I'm being serious people won't rent to you if your a trump supporter. Also if your a single male and you think chillin with a bro house in a gay community while being straight won't fly they expect you to be into kinky weird crap females I can only assume is the same.

The Local women here are crazy drugs rotted their brains and now they think they are Kim Kardashian or Kate Middelton. The food here though good is outrageous 11.00 for a hot dog from a food cart you end up dinning on little cesars or fast food. I work 4 jobs and this place is not the heaven it once was it's a nightmare like san Francisco and Seattle it's greed and heartless and shallow nature has turned Oregon Esp Portland into a money pit if you are not loaded or a trust fund baby stay away try Washington otherwise chances are you will end up like the family of 4 living in a RV having to move it everynight because cops and neighbors don't like it parked on their block (Monsters Live here folks heartless soulless egotistical cynical monsters !!!!)

oh if you flag this that's fine I will just keep reposting exposing Oregon transits is a righteous cause.
