The real estate market in Southwest Washington has seen tremendous growth in the last 10 years. In years past it was viewed as a sleepy part of the state that relied on the Columbia River for most of its commerce and recreational activities.
After the crash of 2008, Portland Oregon (SW Washington biggest metropolitan center) saw exceptional growth with the housing market and the job market.
As a result, more and more people moved into the area. Southwest Washington has more affordable homes and thus saw more people looking for real estate in the area.
