The 3 Best Portland Suburbs for Building a Home

1. Camas

This city may surprise some of you that are familiar with the Portland area. Camas is actually located on the other side of the Columbia in Washington State. This is a really pretty suburb, and the location offers some unique benefits. Because it is located in Washington State, you don’t pay income tax, and your property tax will be much lower, and you can shop in Oregon where there is no sales tax! It is the best of both worlds. 

2. West Linn

The best part about West Linn is the diverse lifestyle options. A lot of West Linn is traditional suburban lots. Perfect for those who want to live right outside a big city. But for those who like a little more privacy, there is acreage available. 

3. Lake Oswego

Lake Oswego is a beautiful city near a clean and clear lake. The schools are excellent and have great extra curriculars. This cute little town is full of fun restaurants, and you may spot a pro basketball player or two 😉
