Considering a move to Salem, Oregon?
Do you agree with the following statements?
Sales tax is for suckers.
I hate pumping my own gas.
If any of these statements resonated with you - start packing. Salem awaits!
Salem. Not the One With the Witches. Not the One in North Carolina Either.
Just like the rest of Oregon, there’s NO SALES TAX. Unlike in the rest of Oregon, housing prices are still fairly reasonable. Just like the rest of Oregon, you’re super close to beaches and skiing. Just like the rest of Oregon, you aren’t allowed to pump your own gas.
Most Salem apartments, duplexes and single-family home rentals are well-maintained. You’ll find many rental property ads banding about the “mid-century modern” descriptor, but the phrase is used in the loosest terms possible. Palm Springs, this aint.
Most rental properties accept pets (with deposit) and many offer month-to-month leases, which means deals for those willing to commit to a longer stay. The market isn’t nearly as cut-throat in Salem as it is in Portland or Eugene; so those willing to do a bit of research and spend a bit of extra time looking will undoubtedly discover the Salem home or apartment of their dreams.
Well, Now I’m Here - Where Should I live?
Most of the apartment rentals in this area offer the basics you’d expect: onsite laundry facilities, fitness centers, etc. Home rentals run the gamut from older neighborhoods (Chatnika Heights, Kingwood Hills) to newer construction (Brush College) Oh, and the views in this part of town are none too shabby.
Ranging from older apartments to cottages, to duplexes, to golf course living - depending on budget and needs there’s literally something for everyone in South Salem.
Looking for cheap? Welcome to East Salem. Easy access to I-5? Well, that’s just an added bonus.
Ranging from apartments to condos, this area is a great place to look at!
