Portland's median home price may be roughly double that of the United States, but even within our metro area, there are big differences in what your money will buy you, depending on what neighborhood you're considering. In this series, we'll take a look at what the same price point will get you in different markets around the city. First up: Milwaukie, Portland, and Tualatin. Have a price point you'd like us to explore, or a property you think we should feature? Get in touch at [email protected]
Milwaukie | $499,000
Size: 1,524 square feet / 3 bed, 1.5 bath
Location: 17409 SE River Road
This recently renovated farmhouse was built in 1913; there's plenty of potential for future upgrades, from the yard to the attic. The quarter acre lot has views of the Willamette River, as well as a deck and covered parking. An outbuilding with loft space could be a great office, workshop, or hang-out space.

Tualatin | $499,900
Size: 2,232 square feet / 3 beds, 3 baths
Location: 8665 SW Chinook Street
The front door of this condo opens up to a wall of windows and skylights that bring ample natural light to the home's two living spaces and kitchen. Three large bedrooms all come with their own walk-in closets and access to outdoor space, either a balcony or the backyard. The backyard itself backs up against the Tualatin Country Club, though trees offer a green screen between you and golfers.
