Portland Real Estate Insider: Happy 152nd Birthday, Oregon!

On February 14th, 1859, Oregon officially became the 33rd state in the Union. Sure, today may be Valentine’s Day, but here’s something everyone will be happy to celebrate: Happy Birthday to the best place in the country. There’s a reason this green piece of earth was the end of the road for thousands of weary 19th century pioneers, and it’s the same thing that pulls 21st century dreamers to the banks of our rivers and the waves of our shores. Oregon is still home to the best farmland, the most beautiful cities, and a population of people looking for creative change and community. A lot of people are still finding themselves on that old Oregon Trail, as the Portland real estate market is drawing in prospective homeowners nationally and internationally – we’ve got the best drinking water,  no sales tax, we’re the best place to live without a car, we’ve got some of the best wine in the world, and we’ve got the hippest food scene around. We could continue listing the best things about Oregon, or you could stay tuned to the McDonald Group Real Estate Blog to keep up with the news, events, celebrations, and homes for sale in Portland and surrounding areas. We’re here to help you “Keep Oregon, Oregon” for another 152 years!
