Rent to Own Homes near Portland, OR

Top Reasons to Live in Portland OR

  • Nowhere on the entire West Coast will you find a city as vibrant, friendly, or even half as interesting as Portland, otherwise known as the City of Roses. The city's wacky atmosphere and friendly populace are the result of a peculiar confluence -- Portland's geographical location grants it easy accessibility all across the western seaboard, and the cost of living here is more forgiving than most American cities. Portland is hence able to play host to a multitude of diverse events, from regular exhibitions at Alberta Street's many galleries to the annual Santa Rampages cheered on by everyone but the law. The diversity of the local populace also makes the process of acclimatization relatively easier -- the city welcomes all new residents with open arms. It is only in Portland that you can start conversations with any number of random strangers and end up consistently surprised by what you end up hearing.

  • Housing Statistics The median home sale price currently sits roughly at the $300,000 mark - higher than in recent years, certainly, but slightly below the $305,000 precedent set in 2008-09. This recent rise can probably be attributed to a corresponding increase in the number of sales - total sales for 2013 have already crossed the 3,000 mark at the time of writing. Apartment vacancy rates hit rock bottom in Portland touching 3.3 percent (the national average vacancy rate is 8.3 percent). Most of the rush in the housing market is targeted at rental homes as ownership percentage has been on the decline. As high property prices are keeping people from buying their own houses, they are drifting towards rent to own houses, which are both flexible and affordable. The average listing price also gives potential buyers a cause to rejoice: it currently sits just over $440,000.
  • Local Restaurants There are a multitude of exemplary restaurants in the city, but some of the best and most innovative include The Alibi, which happens to be Portland's only resto-bar with a tiki theme. The Delta Cafe is famous for its sumptuous varieties of fritters and other local delicacies. Le Hapy is the place to be if you ever get a craving for crepes or other authentic French cuisine. And finally, for those seeking fine dining at fast food prices, the Western Culinary Institute provides exemplary food and service through the zeal of its students, who are efficient and courteous.
