Portland Ranks 14th Highest Median Rent in the Country and Where's the Love?



by Spencer Marona 

According to Zumper's National Rent Report for February of 2015, Portland ranked 14th out of the 50 major metropolitan markets for highest median rent in the month of February.

Zumper also ranked Portland at number six in a recently published article on the top six places for singles to find love.

Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Zumper is a relatively new startup research and technology company, twinning a consumer and B2B approach. Zumper developed the first ever search-through-close rental platform where a user can search, tour, and submit an instant and guaranteed rental application for a home or apartment via their mobile phone.

Zumper may be relatively new to the multifamily industry; however, with venture capital firms like KPCB and Andreessen Horowitz among others, chances are Zumper could become a household name soon. Both firms have venture backed giants in the tech industry including: Google, Amazon, Pinterest, Twitter, Airbnb, Spotify, Flipboard, and more.
