Hillsboro has a significant real estate market as it is the second largest suburb of Portland, Oregon following Gresham. The sprawling suburb pops north of Highway 26 and drops south past Highway 8. Hillsboro hosts its own airport, the second busiest in Oregon. Intel has a significant presence here, the Ronler Acres Campus, and there are two massive shopping districts to choose from, Tanasborne and Orenco Station.

Hillsboro is the Most Diverse City in the State of Oregon

No doubt due in part to the growing international Intel corporation and the accessibility of its own significant airport, Hillsboro has the honor of being Oregon’s most diverse city.

2022 Hillsboro Real Estate Market Forecast

We recently finished our preliminary Portland Real Estate Market Forecast for 2022, predicting a 9% increasing in home prices over the entire metro in 2022. While Hillsboro trailed behind in price appreciation from 2020 to 2021, it is now accelerating the fastest, likely due to more affordable home prices than most of the metro. We predict Hillsboro will exceed the greater Portland 9% increase and will increase by a full 14% in home prices in 2022.

Portland Suburbs Average Sales Prices in 2021
1. Gresham = 478,900
2. Beaverton = 513,400
3. Hillsboro = 514,100
4. Milwaukie = 564,500
5. Oregon City = 587,600
6. Tigard = 625,200
7. Lake Oswego = 1,020,000

There is not much room left for population growth in Hillsboro.

The Hillsboro real estate market is landlocked, meaning there isn’t much room for growth. There is almost no vacant land left to develop once the Reed’s Crossing project is finished. Hillsboro is completely surrounded by other suburbs, so they have no room to expand their borders. We believe this means buying a home in Hillsboro is likely to be a stable long-term investment.
