Portland is the biggest city in the state. It is known in the Pacific Northwest for being bike and ecologically friendly, organizing large farmers markets, music festivals and many more. Portland has something to offer to both tourists and citizens.  

It sounds great, right? And if you are really considering to move to Portland, there are certain things you have to do.

Choose a residential area

Portland is divided into 5 residential districts – North, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest. Landscapes, home styles, availability of public transportation, cultural aspect – everything differs in each neighborhood. For instance, if you are a coffee lover or like spending evenings in cozy cafes, the Northwest will suit you the best. Vice versa, if you are looking for more funky vibes, choose the Southeast.

There are lots of information on each district online, so do your research!

Find a place for living

As we have mentioned, there are different home styles in Portland, depending on the neighborhood. So, only after choosing the residential district, you can decide whether you want a condo, apartment, duplex, or a house.

Use Craigslist or Zillow to find a residence as these two platforms are the most popular in Portland. Of course, you can find something simply walking around and talking to locals. 

Consider a new job

If you are moving to Portland due to your current job, it is totally fine. But if you do not have a work place yet, check the local job boards like Craiglist, StoriJobs, CNRG and so on. There are lots of options for newcomers in various industries.

Meet the locals

Portland citizens are very friendly and open-minded, so you can simply start a conversation literally with anybody just right on the street. There are lots of special interest clubs, volunteer associations, parks for pet owners, weekly events and so on. That is why it is quite easy to build a new community in Portland and get used to your new place of living. 

Hire a Portland moving company

Moving to the city, you do not necessarily have to hire a Portland moving company. But we still recommend you to do so as the local movers know neighborhoods better and can suggest you some places for leisure activities, shopping, studying and so on.

If you are moving from another state, make sure the movers are federally registered, have licenses and insuring.
