From its outdoor recreation to its environmental friendliness, there are many benefits of living in Washington State. Today, we’re zeroing in on one factor we are quite partial to: its diverse housing options. Let’s take a look at the variety of homes currently for sale throughout Southwest Washington (and one just across the border in North Portland!), ranging from hilltop estates to tiny floating homes.
These homes offer a variety of features and amenities, whether you’re looking to be in the heart of it all — or away from it all. And with such a thriving real estate market, sometimes it’s just fun to look at current listings, whether or not you’re actively searching.
