City Description for Relocating to Portland Metro

Happy Valley

When it comes to Happy Valley, Oregon you have to think about the real estate market and the influx of high end homes like you see to the left here.  This city was so overbuilt that it led the state in foreclosures and short sales when the real estate market turned bad.  It's a great place to live in an incredible home for great price with new schools, parks, government buildings and shopping.
