Housing in Eastern Oregon cheaper than rest of state

Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, Ore. - Housing in Eastern Oregon is noticeably cheaper than in other parts of the state west of the Cascade Range.

Figures from two real estate companies show Pendleton and Hermiston as their lease expensive Oregon markets.

For 37-year-old Chad Patterson, a teacher who moved to Pendleton in February, the price divide between west and east in Oregon means the difference between renting and owning.

He has recently bought a place in Pendleton he believes would have cost twice as much in Portland - about $300,000.

With the loans he is paying off from graduate school, Patterson said he could not have made the purchase in Oregon's largest city.
