Portlanders Blame Californians For Rising Real Estate Prices, Protest With Stickers

New, 2 comments

In the type of not-so-charming local real estate story that you would probably not expect to come out of Portland, Oregon, at least one resident is taking a stand against...rising real estate prices? Or Californian transplants? Or the entire state of California? It's not entirely clear, but a number of stickers have appeared recently on For Sale signs sporting a silhouette of the state of California with a line through it, apparently indicating that people from California are paying too much money when they move to Portland, driving up home values, which is bad? Or maybe whoever is behind the stickers just thinks California is shaped weird.
