I've been eagerly watching the condo buildings go up in my neighborhood. I've been hoping that they would be reasonably priced to match the apartments around us and maybe give us an out from our particular little slice of hell.

Oh but no. $2000 for a 1000 sq foot two bedroom. Are you fucking high? Way to exploit the whole Portland is Full thing (because, in reality, Portland is full.) Just from personal experience rent's gone up about 33% for certain neighborhoods over the last 5 years. And you fucking morons build shit without parking and jack up the prices even further. Go fuck yourselves.
