Portland Business Journal pulled all the market data for the Portland Metro Area for 2018, and compiled a list of the 50 hottest neighborhoods. The headline of "Portland’s Hottest Neighborhoods” is a bit misleading, we are a big Metro spanning 5 counties in 2 states, it’s not just Portland. The top neighborhood is Forest Heights/Cedar Hills/Bethany, which is Portland, but #2-4 are parts of Beaverton, Tigard, and Hillsboro. We are a Metro, get used to it! The areas that I was most interested in (living in NE Portland) are the close in Portland neighborhoods, which continue to dominate. I’ve been selling houses in FoPo for years, and it’s top of the list for the Eastside. I was also happy to see Arbor Lodge/Kenton so highly ranked! It’s such a great areas, but many buyers skip it due to Lombard and I-5. Don’t skip it!
Don’t hesitate to reach out to me for information on your specific neighborhood, and areas you are interested in living in. I’m licensed in both Oregon and Washington, and my business is rooted in working with friends, family, and referrals!
