Is it better to rent or buy in Portland?  We see lots of static graphics with various scenarios that try to answer the question.  This morning, I posted a link to the New York Times’ interactive rent versus buy calculator on our Facebook Page but decided that it would make a good post here too.  Obviously the graphic below is static but clicking on the image (or here) will launch the calculator.  There are more sliders that you can adjust on the site than are shown here.
