If you add in Portland’s part-time residents and visitors, the total number of people can go as high as 2 million each year.
With its beautiful location, high income growth, low crime rate, and vibrant cultural scene, Portland was recently named as the number one “Most Livable City in America” by Forbes magazine, making Portland homes for sale a highly desired commodity to potential residents. Whether it's a single-family unit in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood, or a renovated condo in the historic downtown area, or even a stately waterfront townhouse with spectacular views, you can find that ideal home from among the many available Portland Maine homes for sale.
Portland living also offers a host of recreational opportunities. Diverse shopping options, a variety of local and international cuisine, and numerous galleries and museums can be found in the aptly-named Arts District.
