The "Red House" family in Portland who lost their home may be negotiating a new contract with man who is trying to evict them. He came from Russia as a child and started investing in real estate at 18. He is married with children and is bothered by the way people are reacting to him and his family.
Maybe donations will come to help the original owners keep it? They owe just over $200,000.

Maybe they can work something out.  Our friend is renting out a house with squatters. We just heard about it. He’s not allowed to evict, they aren’t paying rent and if they are there long enough they can take ownership. Squatters rights. So he somehow has to get the people to move by their own choice.

Breaking News!!!
Everyone curious about this story should try one of our local TV stations, KGW.com or KOIN.com
Red house is in a mix of residental, commercial and apartments. The house is very old. Next door to about a 5 story apartment building. It seems Red House family own a house 2 miles away in a strictly residential neighborhood called Irvington. At least 3 Portland mayors have lived there that I can recall. The hedge and yard are perfectly groomed.
I bet they refinanced their Red House to put a big down.payment on their other house and use it as a rental?

On Tuesday, police went to the home again. They emailed reporters photos of what they found, which included two handguns, bear mace, 250 rounds of ammunition, multiple sets of body armor, ballistic vests and helmets. Police made arrests on Tuesday, but they haven’t been able to clear the camp.

I assure you that the other house in Irvington is in perfect shape. It is called NE Portland. This is nothing like the area 3 mayors lived in.
I knew this area very well as a child. My.mother took.me for dtives on Mississippi as the potholes were fun to drive thru fora 3 year old.

The roof slope is called a 12/12. It is what my skylights are on. No problem with trespassers getting in thru them, lol.
