Interested in Investing in Portland real estate? The Piece of PDX team tells all!


We know we’re biased, but we genuinely believe that Portland is one of the best places in the country. There is something for everyone here – especially for those of you who are looking to invest in real estate. Whether you’re looking for a place to call home or would like to pick up a rental property, Portland is the place to do so. So, what makes investing in Portland real estate worthwhile? We’re here to tell you!


Portland Is Growing

Something so important to look at when deciding to invest in real estate is the future growth potential. When a city grows, demand for housing increases. When demand for housing increases, values go up, up, up! Right now, all signs are pointing to Portland experiencing some massive growth in the next decade, which means equity for homeowners and real estate investors. 


Portland’s population has increased by about 42 percent in the last twenty years to about 3.5 million residents, which has caused the economy to boom. Portland has high-paying jobs, which means many current residents who don’t own homes can afford to buy and will likely do so in the coming years.


More Demand For Rentals

If you’re interested in becoming a landlord for long-term rentals, you’re in the right place. As we mentioned before, Portland has high-paying jobs with companies like Columbia Sportswear and Nike calling Portland home. Many of these companies have employees who may not be ready to buy a home, but have the monthly income to afford to rent a place. With a rental property, you’ll receive a nice monthly payment that will cover your property-related expenses, while gaining equity that you can cash in on when the time is right.  



Portland Is Unique and Sustainable

One of Portland’s biggest draws is its uniqueness. While many things make Portland stand out from other major cities, its focus on sustainability is arguably one of its biggest draws. We have the most bike paths in the country and are the first city to pass a green tax on corporations. (Antonina, Embrace Someplace


Not only is sustainability an attractive perk to moving to the area, but it is also incredibly important! Since we are miles ahead of other cities in terms of sustainable living, this should do wonderful things for our property values, making it a great place to invest your hard-earned money.
