Checking in on Oregon’s Real Estate Environment

Oregon continues to benefit from one of the nation’s most attractive residential and commercial real estate environments. We have had, and will continue to have, ebbs and flows just like any market, as we discussed here. But the region's general stability, strong workforce and beautiful environment, which provides a great place to live, will continue to support favorable conditions for the real estate industry.

In recognition of Oregon’s status as a key real estate market, one of the leading legal commentary organizations chose our state for inclusion in its annual Regional Real Estate Guide. Four partners from Tonkon Torp’s Real Estate & Land Use Practice Group were selected to author the Oregon guide, which was released in June by Chambers and Partners.

Over the next few months, the attorneys who contributed to the guide (Joe Voboril, Kimberlee Stafford, David Petersen, and Ted Herzog) will present an Oregon Real Estate Review miniseries on this blog. We will pull out highlights from the guide that touch on new, unique and evergreen aspects of Oregon’s real estate environment that have the potential to impact anyone involved in real estate investing, lending and development in the state.

Read our first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh installments in this blog series.
