If you own a home in Bethany, Oregon, you may already be aware of Bethany’s impressive status as one of the hottest Portland-area real estate markets. Despite the recent cooling of home sales, the median time on market for a single family residence in Bethany was 6 days in 2022, and the average sales price was 2.9% over list, placing it among Oregon’s most sought after places to live. Bethany’s many neighborhoods are known widely for craftsmanship, community, and the careful conservation of outdoor spaces. Because of this, word has traveled fast among home buyers looking for proximity to parks, restaurants, and some of the metropolitan area’s best schools. For sellers, this means strong demand for Bethany homes. For buyers looking to secure a quality home in an incredible neighborhood, Bethany is a great choice.

Even as the last few decades have brought incredible residential and commercial development throughout the Portland area, much of Bethany’s agricultural roots persist, lending greater appeal for many of the 26,500 residents. Many Bethany neighborhoods were built after the opening of the Urban Growth Boundary around the Portland Metro in the 2010’s. Flanked by family Christmas tree farms, pumpkin patches, and nurseries, Bethany’s idyllic neighborhoods continue to draw buyers looking to plant roots in the Pacific Northwest.


Quality of life is at the core of Bethany, Oregon’s appeal. Walkable neighborhoods with cul-de-sacs, streetlights, and miles of sidewalks appeal widely, especially to the nearly 7,000 households with children. Many of the owner’s associations feature community centers and pools, while other neighborhoods have playgrounds, parks, and trails maintained by the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation Division. One of Bethany’s best examples is Arbor Heights, a development of recently-built luxury homes. Its sidewalks are buffered from the roads by tree-lined, grass curbs, which makes for a safe walk to the Arbor Heights Community Center for a swim, game of basketball, or playground for kids.

Arbor Oaks and the more established Oakridge Estates are two more examples of what Bethany offers: spacious, well-crafted homes in safe, quiet communities. Both offer wonderful parks and greenspaces and true neighborhood community feel. Arbor Oaks residents enjoy the community pool and Oakridge offers tennis courts and a gathering structure for neighborhood activities and events.

Adding to the appeal of Bethany is its proximity to commercial amenities. Central to all is Bethany Village, the commercial heart of the area offering daytime essentials such as groceries, coffee shops, dry cleaning, and quality health care. As evening ascends, local favorites like The Bethany Public House and Bethany’s Table provide lively venues for families and friends to gather. In all, Bethany Village is host to 16 food and drink establishments, as well as dozens of providers offering educational, health, beauty, and fitness services.

Bethany, Oregon residents are the Portland area’s most educated. Approximately 70% are college educated and nearly 40% have professional or graduate degrees. This accounts for the high standard set for the neighborhood schools. Springville K-8, Sato, Jacob Wismer and Findley Elementary are all very highly rated for their academic performance, teacher to student ratio, and parent accessibility to school leadership. This strong foundation carries to an equally  esteemed Stoller Middle School. Centrally located between the Bethany Terrace and Arbor Heights communities, Stoller feeds into Sunset High School. With its full International Baccalaureate program, and an array of accomplishments in music and athletics, Sunset High School is a remarkable option for students working towards post-secondary opportunities.
