Oregon Central Coast
The Oregon Central Coast is a beautiful, economical place to live.
In the rural areas most residences have their own water via wells, and their own septic systems. This reduces monthly expenses. In the last three years Elkton, Drain, Scottsburg have all gained internet and cell phone accessibilty.
Elkton has fabulous Charter Schools where the students have small classes and receive the education they deserve.
Reedsport also has Charter Schools.
The climate in the summer is fabulous, no bugs, no humidity and great for growing vegetable gardens in Scottsburg, Elkton and Drain. July through October is full on Sun. November you can count on rain, December and January are dry but cool, the end of February through April is generally rainy, then May and June have alternating rain one week, sun the next. I have lived here for 12 years.
Clean air, clean water, with many opportunities for biking, hiking, fishing, crabbing and camping.
Oregon needs a migration of motivated self sufficient minded, creative people!
You will find no better value for your money than real estate in Oregon.
For skiiers there is Mt Hood outside of Portland and Mt. Ashland to the south outside of Medford.
