Residential costs

 

Greater Portland-Vancouver has fared better than most U.S. metros on the housing front, with foreclosures remaining among the lowest in the country. Prices, too, especially in comparison with California markets, are a bargain both for buyers and for renters.

(Note: Comparative metros shown throughout these data were selected for their competitiveness with greater Portland.)

Income

The region’s median household income of $55,267 reflects a 17% increase since 2000. Both median household and per capita income grew faster in those years than those of Austin, Denver or San Jose.
