Bethany, NW Portland Real Estate Market 2023 Report

January 23, 2023

Bethany is a highly desirable NW Portland suburb-like (it is not its own city, it is a unincorporated community) located in Washington County where among other benefits, residents enjoy lower housing and income taxes than Multnomah County while retaining a Portland address. As an additional perk, it is served by the highly rated schools of the Beaverton school district, with two of its high schools ranked among the top ten public high schools in Oregon. The sprawling 260-acre Rock Creek Campus of Portland Community College is also located here, featuring woodlands, wetlands, and grasslands with walking trails and a farm that is open to the public.
