"We want a home near OHSU, can you help us find one?" and the search begins.

My clients want me to find them property specific homes. By that I mean, they want something specific in their home be it style, number of bedrooms, new(er) construction, or a combination of must haves. 

One of the most important must haves I've encountered in my real estate career has been location and proximity. I've had several buyer clients looking, specifically at the homes for sale near OHSU.

Why Have My Clients Wanted to See Homes for Sale Near OHSU?

There have been a few of my former clients who have moved to Portland for a medical teaching position at OHSU, and homes for sale near OHSU was at the top of their list. But, because they were professors, not medical doctors, they weren't stuck on solely looking for homes for sale near OHSU. Medical doctors, on the other hand, need to really concentrate on homes for sale near OHSU.

  • Doctors in residency who may be interning in the Emergency Room may need to start off looking for homes for sale near OSHU because they have to be on call.
  • Medical doctors who perform surgery will need to be close to their patients in order to perform their rounds and when looking for homes to purchase we start off with homes that are currently for sale near OHSU.

What are Some of the Challenges in Finding Homes for Sale Near OHSU?

OHSU is called "Pill Hill" because it's located in the West Hills of Portland. As such, the homes in any hilltop area tend to be more expensive. I tell my clients the higher the elevation and the closer in to town, the higher the price. When looking for homes for sale near OHSU, or in another area, price is important.

I'll be in Portland for the Waterfront Blues Festival, and hope to take a ride on that tram.  The OHSU area sounds like a great place to buy a house, and folks should call Carla Muss-Jacobs to get it done!
