Maybe you can run it through Google Translate? If not, here's a brief description of the site. On the left side you can narrow the search for housing. The first one (sijainti) is location (city), second is size in square meters, third one is the type of announcement (myynnissä means on sale, the other one is sort of a "quiet sale", which means that the seller is just checking what kind of prices people are willing to pay), fourth one is the number of rooms and the last one is the type of housing (apartment, detached, "separate house"??, row house, duplex, sort of a loft house and wooden house).
Oikotie.fi is probably the biggest web site for housing announcements in Finland. Another one is etuovi.com. There's also a new service (also in English) that let's you check out housing in many North European countries at
Another city worth checking out is Sipoo, to the east of Helsinki. The distance from Sipoo to Vuosaari is less than from Espoo or Western Vantaa. It's a pretty attractive area if value nature and space. And they speak mostly Swedish, which is a lot easier to learn than Finnish :p
