In the words of Zoolander, the Portland real estate market is, "so hot right now". Properties list and sell in a matter of days and there's a wide range of options, from extreme fixer-uppers to high end estates. Portland's neighborhoods are diverse, too. Whether you're looking for an in-town home, a downtown condo, a cozy cape on the outskirts of town, or even a cottage in one of Portland's island communities, you can find it.

With the hopping market and diverse selection of properties, your money goes further in some areas than others. These two homes are in the same price range but they're in very different locations. One is a short walk to Hadlock Field and the other requires a ferry ride to get there.

Which would you pick: The stately Libbytown home with original character or the adorable home on Peaks Island?
