Portland Real Estate Guide: New McDonald Group “Portland Home Styles” Series

Victorian, Craftsman, Ranch, modern, mid-century, “Portland Style.” If you’ve spent any time looking for homes for sale in the Portland Real Estate market, these words should be very familiar – but do you really know what they mean? If you were to do a search in the Portland Real Estate Market for “Tudor” homes, you’d no doubt come up with drastically varying results. What are the characteristics that make up a Tudor home, or an English cottage, or an “Old Portland”-style house? If you love classic built-ins, fireplaces, and hardwood floors, what words should you be using? If you want a truly modern West Hills home, what can you ask for to avoid being shown all the ranches and mid-centuries? We’ll answer those questions and more with our upcoming guides to Portland Home Styles.

We’re launching a new series of Home Style guides that will give you a crash course in the architectural history, signature characteristics, and pros and cons of specific home styles, as well as tips on where in Portland and Portland-area suburbs you’ll find any kind of home. Here at the McDonald Group Portland Real Estate blog, we’ll be digging up the facts on all the home styles you’ll find in Portland and the surrounding areas, so you’ll know how to tell a New England Colonial from a Colonial Cape Cod – and be one step closer to finding the Portland home of your dreams. Stay tuned!
