PORTLAND, OR – February 16, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Portland REALTOR® David Somerville says the Beaverton suburb of Portland will continue to attract commuters in 2012 due to lifestyle and real estate values.
With Beaverton homes for sale (http://www.maxwellsinclair.com/beaverton.php) currently ranging from $130,000 to $4.5 million, there are plenty of choices available for would-be Beaverton residents, and all within less than fiftenn minutes of Downtown Portland.
Somerville says the convenient access to Portland with Beaverton’s location off of Highway 26 (Sunset Highway) is one of the features that appeals to so many buyers, but the wide variety of homes in every price range also helps.
“The Portland real estate market broadly includes several outlying communities such as Beaverton, and commuters especially love it. It’s less than 8 miles from the center of Portland, and you can buy a lot of house for the money in Beaverton.”
He says Beaverton real estate (http://www.maxwellsinclair.com) values are particularly plentiful in the $250,000 to $400,000 price range, with an abundance of bank owned homes on the market affecting inventory levels.
“Buyers can currently get a lot for their money in Hillsboro. In the Portland MLS right now, I can find 2700 s.f. homes under $250,000.”
Somerville says there may never have been a better time to get into the market for Beaverton homes.
“With the job market in Portland relatively stable and interest rates extremely low, it’s hard to think of a better opportunity for first time home buyers or anyone wanting to buy a home to check out what’s available.”
