Portland Real Estate Market
It's easy to see why we are such a green city, not just because we are in the Pacific Northwest because of our close proximity to bodies of water. The Columbia River separates Southwest Washington from Oregon and the Willamette River runs north and south to the center of town. Toward the southern part of the city is Lake Oswego, connected by Oswego Creek to the river. When moving to Portland, you'll find dozens of waterfront estates, mansions, and luxury homes around the lake and Lakewood Bay. There is also a variety of master-planned communities in Portland, for those who really want to take advantage of the amenities in the city.
In downtown Portland, you'll find high-end condominium buildings overlooking the river with stunning views stretching to Mount Hood, one of our premier winter recreation destinations.
The Willamette River flows north through downtown and serves as a natural boundary between East and West Portland. The Westside extends to the lap of the West Hills and features a denser, earlier developed community while the flatter, east side extends for roughly 180 blocks meeting the suburb of Gresham. You'll find historical homes on the side of the river, luxury properties, larger estates, and many bungalows and single-family homes while on the west side of the river in places like Beaverton, West Hills, and the Sylvan Highlands neighborhood, you'll find properties more spread out with a higher cost of living, and often properties with extensive views. Highway 26 runs west out of town connecting with Highway 6 to the ocean.
Portland Community Amenities
Portland was actually named after Portland, Maine, and has continued to be settled since its first inhabitants in the 1830s knew the end of the Oregon Trail. Our water access provides convenient transportation of goods, specifically the timber industry during the turn-of-the-century. Today, the city operates with the commission-based government, one of the most unique systems in the country and the only directly elected metro planning organization in the U.S. Portland was the first city to enact a comprehensive plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and we've been ranked as one of the greenest cities in the nation. Our mild climates, warm, dry summers, cool and rainy winters make Portland ideal for vegetation, which is why we've been called the "City of Roses" for over a century.
Portland boasts services and amenities comparable to any metro area in the country with world-famous restaurants, high-end condominiums, and luxury homes, fantastic art museums, cultural centers, zoos, outdoor recreation, and a strong economy. Even better is the fact that a number of Portland's neighborhoods are highly walkable to these amenities. The general demographic is quite active and our love for the outdoors is unmatched. The Pacific Ocean and beautiful beaches are less than two hours west and downtown Seattle, Washington is about three hours north.

There are nearly 2.4 million people living in the Portland metro area, which is includes the city of Vancouver, Southwest Washington, Lake Oswego community, and surrounding suburbs, communities (including very walkable ones), and neighborhoods, all accessible by Portland driving or public transportation.
