Portland Realtor Guide: Portland Comes to Life in the Colors of Fall

Portland Real EstateHere at the McDonald Group Realtors, we’re head over heels for the fall colors that take over this time of year. Sure, summer in Portland is mild and perfect for picnics, music festivals, barbecues and pool parties, and the few days of snow we get in the winter turn the town into a magical fairy land where bundled-up Portland residents cross-country ski down a major east side thoroughfare. And yes, Spring is a force to be reckoned with in Portland, when Homes For Sale in Portland signs are almost overtaken by the millions of daffodils that pop up EVERYWHERE, but fall is simply the best. From Hillsboro and Wilsonville to the Bridlemile Neighborhood and Sherwood, the colors of Portland and Portland area suburban trees and hills are breathtaking. This is the PERFECT time to visit the area to check out the best of the Portland Real Estate market. Homes for sale are being sold at record-breaking low prices, and this month every street in the area is pulling out all the stops to get you to think about buying a home in Portland.
