Tualatin, Oregon..A Great Place To Call Home!
Tualatin, Oregon (pronounced TU-AAH-LA-TIN) is a wonderful suburb city about 11 miles or 20 minutes south of downtown Portland. Many move to Tualatin to take advantage of its desirable location along I-5 and I-205 highways Â as well as having the WES rail system(Westside Express Service) for ease of commuting to other cities.
Â At its center is Tualatin Commons on the Lake where many events are held throughout the year from The Crawfish Festival, Summer Concert series, Farmerâ€™s Market, Artsplash and the Giant Pumpkin Regattaâ€¦to name a few. Once a pet food factory, Tualatin Commons is now a 19 acres of restaurants, condos, offices, surrounding the 3 acre lake.
Â For 25 years, Tualatin as been honored to hold the â€œTree City USAâ€ title by the Arbor Day Foundation and itâ€™s no wonder with having around 260 acres of beautiful parks, natural areas and greenways to enjoy.
Â Homes in Tualatin typically run from a $100,000 condo to several million dollar estates. The average sales price is currently at $321,000 and the median sales price at $286,000. There are many styles of homes to choose from at all price ranges. Most of Tualatin is in Washington County, but there is a section by Meridian Park Hospital that is in Clackamas County.
Â One of the misconceptions about Tualatin..and Portland in general is that youâ€™ll find homes on huge lots. With The Urban Growth Boundary, many of the newer homes are close together and on an average lot size of 6,000sf. Yes, there are homes that do have larger lots that can be up to an acre, but not many. Typically there is a trade off with having a large lot but older home that often needs updatingâ€¦or a newer home with updates, but on a smaller lot.
