Color-coded map of Portland neighborhoods with a legend detailing change in median sales price

Between 2018 and 2019, only half of Portland’s neighborhoods saw a bump in their median sales price. But last year? It’s an entirely different kind of flying, altogether. We are talking up, up, and up, with only a handful of neighborhoods losing value (one of them is the condo-heavy Pearl) and a citywide increase in the median sales price that’s nearly twice what it was the year before. And while it didn’t reach a frenzy, sales sped up in Portland and most close-in burbs, with houses spending roughly a week less on the market than they might have the year before. The speediest sales were in Grant Park, Kenton, and Parkrose Heights. And while Parkrose Heights isn't one of them, the richest PDX hoods (according to median family income, at least) have Heights, High, or Hill in their name.

Methodology

Neighborhood

Boundaries represent records maintained by the city as of January 2021. Boundary conflicts were resolved for statistical purposes only. Due to overlap between certain neighborhoods, boundary definitions may vary occasionally across categories. With the exception of the area unofficially (but universally) known as Dunthorpe, unclaimed sections of Multnomah County were excluded.

Real Estate

2020 data from the Regional Multiple Listing Service with analysis by the Center for Spatial Analysis and Research at Portland State University’s Department of Geography. Figures were rounded for legibility. In neighborhoods with very few home sales, such as Sunderland and Healy Heights, the year-to-year change can appear exaggerated.

People

Data from the US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, released December 2020. The ACS data are estimates only and accuracy varies by attribute.

Rent Costs

Calculated from all renter-occupied units, estimated median rent is not adjusted for unit size or number of occupants. Figure includes estimated monthly utility costs.

Median Income

The Census defines household as including “all the persons who occupy a housing unit as their usual place of residence.” Thus living situations in this estimate range from individuals to large households.

Parks

Data from Metro and/or individual cities.

Transit

Neighborhood data from TriMet. City and suburb transit information was sourced from TriMet as well as other services, including CC Rider, C-TRAN, Canby Area Transit, Sandy Area Metro, and South Metro Area Regional Transit.

Minutes by Car to Downtown

Prepandemic Google Maps estimate, based on non-rush-hour conditions, from a neighborhood/suburb central point to Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square. Rush-hour travel time was estimated for a 9 a.m. weekday arrival.

Walk Score

2021 data from WalkScore.com, now a part of real estate agency Redfin. This score reflects, on a scale of 1 to 100, a neighborhood’s pedestrian-friendliness based on distances to amenities such as grocery stores and other routine destinations. For some cities and neighborhoods with a commercial central point or a large nonresidential area (such as Forest Park), the score was taken from a point in a central residential portion.

Unavailable Data is noted with a dash (—).
