The Pacific Northwest is on track to experience a drastic rise in cost of living.
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Portland, Ore. is expected to see the largest increase in living expenses out of any U.S. city in 2018, found a new study by personal finance website GOBankingRates.
Seattle is expected to see the second-highest increase in home value and the largest increase in rent. The city's rapid growth and rising costs can be attributed to the recent tech boom, as well as the construction of Amazon's new headquarters.
To identify cities that are expected to see a notable increase in prices, GOBankingRates analyzed three key factors: the year-over-year median home value forecast, the year-over-year median rent forecast, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index change between 2014 and 2017.
