Portland Monthly Neighborhood Guide
The Portland Monthly magazine features neighborhoods in their April issue every year. It has tons of information about neighborhoods to include their pick of the best neighborhoods for the year.
To help those in the housing market, the magazine combines all the data from 120 neighborhoods and communities in the Portland metro area. Included in the story are housing prices, school ratings, demographics, crime statistics, parks, commuting information, and services. For the past three years, Portland Monthly has been cautiously optimistic about Portland’s metro area slow-simmering real estate market. But 2013 saw a surge of good news. Home buying is way up. Almost half of the neighborhoods have returned to the median home prices they enjoyed five years ago. In many places, crime is down. Indeed, a whopping 73% of people who took the magazine’s reader survey think it’s a good time to buy and to sell a home.
