Investors from all over the West Coast are drawn to Portland. From Vancouver, BC to San Diego, California, investors have been targeting Portland real estate for many years, and there are many good reasons to invest in the Portland real estate market. With the market going full speed ahead, low interest rates, and reasonable sales prices compared to other West Coast cities, the Portland real estate market is full of opportunities.
Add to that, Portland has one of the lowest rental vacancy rates in any major US city. We have a greater percentage of 25-40 year olds, many of whom rent. Also, Oregon is at the top of the list for more people moving to the state than leaving it. All of this makes for more people needing a place to live.
