Beaverton zip codes are bursting at the seams.  Beginning July 1st, two new zip codes will be instigated.  According to KOIN 6, the streets listed below will retain their zip codes.

How will this impact real estate searches? We’ve seen changes in street names (Portland BLVD to Rosa Parks and 39th Ave. to Caesar Chavez) but never the addition of new zip codes.  It will probably take a few days and some research to get a clearer picture.  Zip codes are a popular way to define searches so we’re going to have to figure out if client searches are affected.
