Vancouver, Washington is located directly on the border of Washington and Oregon. In Clark County, it’s situated on the north bank of the Columbia River.
40% of property in Vancouver is rental property. 1 bedroom average rent is $1400 and average 2 bedroom rent is $1900, rising steadily over the past 3 years.
Some Vancouver neighborhoods are Fisher’s Creek, Shumway, Felida, Esther Short, and Cascade Highlands.
Being so close to Portland Oregon, it is considered part of the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area. Commuting between Portland and Vancouver is common, with heavy traffic on the 2 main bridges over the Columbia River: the Interstate Bridge and the Glenn Jackson Bridge.
On a clear day, 4 mountains are visible from Vancouver: Mt Hood, Mt St Helens, Mt Jefferson, and Mt Adams.
The climate in Vancouver is most similar to Portland. Cool but not freezing most of the year round, with plenty of rain, clouds. Storms will cause freezing weather occasionally though, and a snowstorm occurs about every two to four years. Summers are the sunniest and warmest and quite pleasant.
Population is about 160,000, with very little racial diversity at 76% White, 10% Hispanic, and 3% African American.
Starting in the early 2000s, the city focused on both downtown revitalization and a focus on arts and cultural developments. This has resulted in the city being quite livable and a great place to move. The Kiggins Theatre renovation in downtown Vancouver is a happy by product of this redevelopment. The “Arts District” downtown was formally defined in 2014.
Architecture styles include restored Victorian and craftsman bungalows, as well as ranch styles and larger modern homes in the outskirts.
