Welcome

Welcome to the new Rental Housing Alliance Oregon Website!  Formerly known as Rental Housing Association of Greater Portland. We have made big changes at RHA to provide better service and better value to our members and industry partners.  Why change the name?  Simple: we are growing.  Changing our brand differentiates the Rental Housing Alliance Oregon from other housing groups and creates a statewide presence. You will see new logos, a new look to our magazine, and easy to use on-line tools.  We are starting our 87th year and I’m excited to see RHA grow in service to the industry and presence in Salem.  

Take a look around and get involved.

All my best,

Liz Carpenter

Here at the RHA, we had a big summer. We launched our new community
room by having a party called Under A Starry Night here at the RHA
headquarters. Then we had our annual picnic. We’ve been busy, but
​like you, we’d been busy, but rather have another month of summer.

Since the early years, committed volunteers have run the Rental Housing
Alliance. Certainly people with an interest in the rental housing industry,
but also people who have a built in need to serve others.

Summer is a short time window we have to make repairs, replacements, upgrades, and the rest of those things wet winter days don't allow.

We all know Oregon is the best state to live in, but did you know we’ve become part of a national trend? According to the Portland Business Journal, the Portland-area vacancy rate was just 3.5 percent. That’s the lowest level recorded in the spring since 2008.
