According to Realtor.com, Portland currently ranks as the number ten “Most Popular City to Live”.
There are many reasons that can be attributed to Portland rising to the top as a relocation destination these days. Portland has great livability thanks to their long term urban design plans. Another factor in Portland popularity is the business climate, with growth in technology jobs thanks to Intel and other large technology offices. Coupled with a low crime rate and a mild climate (great for the outdoor activities), Portland is an ideal place to settle down.
The data sources used by Realtor.com to determine their current rankings were based on Census Bureau migration information (from 2010 – 2014).
