Welcome to Portland Homes & Commercial Properties. Following is an overview of the application process. If, after reading the information below, you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us at 503-777-0788
1. Finding a place to call home
First step, look through our available properties for lease. Take your time to read through the listing information, photos, etc. If you still have questions after, please don’t hesitate to give our leasing office a call.
2. Take a look around the neighborhood
Do a drive by the home (don’t disturb existing tenants). Take a look at the exterior, drive the neighborhood or take a walk and get to know the area better.
3. What’s on the inside?
You like the outside of the building, you like the neighborhood – now you want to see what’s on the inside. Easy next step is to give our leasing office a call and schedule a tour of the property.
Read the screening criteria carefully, ensure you understand the requirements for a successful application. You can find the screening criteria (HERE)
Fill out an application:
Each person 18 years old or greater must complete an application
