Portland Ranks No.12 Most Moved-To City in 2018

Weird, funky, creative, and green are just a few of the words we could use to describe this top moving destination. Portland is bursting with character, hosting everything from five-star food trucks to an active volcano, and boasts their slogan: “keep Portland weird.” The city ranks as the 12th most moved-to metro area in Updater’s 2018 Moving Trend Report. Portland leads as a top destination for movers who can take their pick of over 500 food trucks and more than 1,000 coffee shops.

With so many neighborhoods to choose from, there is something for everyone. Portland offers a range of restaurants for foodies, forests for hikers, vast bike lanes for cyclists, and a lively downtown for the night owls. Portland’s diverse draw is evident by the near 600 people who move to the city every week. Such rapid population growth is followed by job growth, as more retail and tech companies lay roots in the Portland area.

The Portland metro area has a population of almost 2.4 million, with a median home value of $422,400 and an average household income of just over $55K.
