Seven miles west of downtown Portland, Beaverton is one of the area’s largest suburbs, with a population of over 90,000 (making it Oregon’s 6th-largest city). But it’s certainly not just a suburb. A number of corporations and business have their home in the city, including Nike and Linux. The growing number of tech business have led to the area being referred to as “Silicon Forest.” This has also helped the city grow by attracting large numbers of young professionals. Since 2000, the population has increased by almost 20%. This also means that insurance rates are being adjusted. So if your premiums have increased recently, it’s probably time to look over all the options for cheap insurance Beaverton can offer.
