Are People Moving out of Portland? Population Growth 2024 Update

It’s that time of the year again when we look at the growing (or shrinking) population of Portland and how it reflects in the Portland real estate market.

Portland, Oregon Radon Map – Plus Free Tests (for some)

Portland, Oregon Radon rates change. A perennial hot topic in Portland is the influx of Californians, but it’s the Montana and Idaho migrants that we should be worried about, according to health officials. Actually, they’re not talking about people, but rocks. “In the Portland metropolitan area, a lot of the rocks and soil underneath the […]
