These classic single-level homes have become increasingly popular in Portland's housing market due to their affordability, universal design features and open floor plans.

Portland real estate market offers an array of breathtaking styles and layouts. From Craftsman bungalows to zero-energy modern homes, there's something for everyone here. But one architectural classic is making a comeback: the humble single-level home, also known as ranch style.

Ranch houses were the epitome of affordability during the post-World War II years: They promised carefree indoor-outdoor living with a backyard patio and lawn on large lots. Ranch houses came in all shapes and sizes, from picture windows in the living room to galley kitchens tucked away among bedrooms.

Many of these ranch homes feature finished basements, giving home shoppers the option to add a family room, gym or other extra space. Furthermore, many are remodelable with the addition of a bathroom and upgraded kitchen or a new roof for aesthetic purposes.

Recent RMLS data comparing all homes with less than one million sales over the past four months indicates that ranch-style and other single-levels sold for 19% more per square foot. Furthermore, they sold faster than multi-levels did, taking on average only 36 days on the Portland real estate market compared to 48 days for multi-levels.

Ranch houses have long been a popular choice among Portland home buyers. That is why it's no shock that these once-humble dwellings have made an enduring comeback, particularly in more affluent neighborhoods on the western edge of town.
