City Guide
Tips for Tenants

As Gresham has blossomed in the past two decades, apartments, townhouses, lofts, and freestanding homes have sprung up like mushrooms. Six percent of all housing units are currently vacant, and new apartment complexes continue to be built, so rest assured you’ll have a wide variety of housing options to choose from.

If contemporary urban flair is your cup of tea, we recommend the variety of spacious pads in the historic downtown area, which puts residents within walking distance of the Arts Plaza, Farmer’s Market, and MAX stations. Other parts of town, like Holly Brook, and Powell Valley, feature boatloads of roomy, modern rental properties as well, most of which go for less than a grand.

You can afford to be picky in Gresham, so if you’re not comfortable with an apartment’s amenities, then shrug it off and move on. Most complexes were built post-1990 and many including washer/dryer units, tenant parking, private decks or patios, walk-in closets, and controlled access to the building. Top-notch amenities are the standard fare in Gresham, so don’t settle for anything less.

Waiting lists are infrequent, and apartments don’t typically see large spikes in occupancies during any specific time of the year, so you won’t have too much competition on your apartment hunting escapades. Sometimes, landlords/property managers require a good-faith deposit or charge additional move-in fees upfront, but not always, so be on the lookout for the unbelievable rent specials that often pop up.

Self-Service is for Schmucks!

One last thought: Unless you live in the downtown area and can rely on public transit alone to haul you around, chances are you’ll need your own set of wheels to shop, dine, bank, work, and socialize conveniently. Obviously, you’ll be spending a pretty penny or two at the filling station … just don’t try to pump your own gas! It’s illegal in the Beaver State for anyone but a “trained professional” to pump petro into your gas guzzler, so save yourself from an embarrassing confrontation with a Chevron employee and just stay put when you pull up to the pump!

And now you’re off to the apartment hunting races, so best of luck, welcome to Gresham, and happy hunting!

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
