Landlord Liability - What You Need to Know

Mainlander - Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Getting your property ready to rent is one thing, and protecting that property and yourself is another. Property management companies do a lot more than taking rent payments. Navigating the world of rental property liability is murky at best, and a complicated area without professional help if an issue arises, or to help ensure you are getting the best quality tenants. There are some instances where a landlord may be held responsible and are good cause for a very thorough tenant screening process.  Read More

How to Escape the Summer Portland Heat This Weekend

Mainlander - Thursday, June 02, 2016

With the temperatures slated to hit 100 degrees this weekend, many Portlanders will be looking for ways to cool off, especially during the hottest days when most of us don’t have central AC. Luckily, there are many ways to beat the heat around town, and all of them should be open now that Memorial Day is behind us. Below are a few lists and reviews of splash pads and fountains around the city, as well as lakes and other swimming holes in nearby towns and up towards Mt. Hood.

All spray parks within the city of Portland are kid friendly and offer a fun way to get cool without worrying about water safety in terms of little ones in a swimming pool. Wear water shoes, especially around the larger fountains, because the ground can get slippery and the water moves fast. Don’t forget the snacks and sunscreen!

Note: This year, all wading pools have been closed by Portland Parks and Recreation. Most of the wading pools should eventually be replaced by water play features that spray water into the air, depending on funding. See the FAQ at Portland’s official website.

This list from PDX Parent includes fountains and splash pads, both free and for a fee, in Beaverton, Clackamas, Gresham and beyond as well as within Portland.

Red Tricycle offers up a list of splash pads, fountains and outdoor pools within the area.

An official list of Portland fountains and splash pads found within parks can be found here.

If you are more of an outdoors, watering-hole-and-waterfall type, this article lays out the best adventures in this Northwest Wonderland that will keep you cool while enjoying the outdoors.

Stay cool!

Why Isn't My Property Renting?

Mainlander - Thursday, January 14, 2016

Even in today’s robust rental market, sometimes properties aren’t renting quickly. This can be discouraging and puzzling to an owner, especially with all the stories of rentals being almost impossible to find, and the popularity of the Portland metro area.

It's easy to wonder, "Why isn't my property renting?"  Read More
