is one of the most important investments a person makes in their lifetime, both financially and personally. Whether first time buyer or seasoned investor, the selling and buying of property can be and should be an exciting and life changing process. While more advanced tools, innovative strategies, and educated buyers and sellers has created a highly profitable and opportunistic market, it also has made the process of buying and selling more complex and involving. But as working with the right real estate office and agent will show you, making your dreams into reality has never been so tangible as these advances and changes in the real estate industry open the door for more and more future homeowners and builders of America.
Very few people realize how strong real estate is in our country. There are over 75 million homeowners in the United States. One in two homeowners have a solid fixed mortgage, while one in three homeowners have no mortgage, they own their home free and clear. For those looking to buy or relocate, time has shown that America is on the move towards bigger and better opportunities. Over the last two years, four million new jobs have been created, four million marriages have taken place and eight million children have been born. The U.S. Census reports indicate a record number of Americans moving across state borders.
The future of real estate looks just as promising. We can look forward to enjoying interest rates that are near 40 year lows. We can look forward to seeing unemployment holding steady at an extraordinarily low 5%. We can look forward to seeing inflation remain under control and the economy stable and growing.

At the Heart of The Willamette Valley...
Corvallis is quickly become one of the best places to live in the Pacific Northwest. Not only visually appealing with wide streets, ancient trees, brick or white masonry buildings, and a quietly impressive waterfront, but also culturally appealing with a wealth of outdoor recreation, educational opportunities, wineries, galleries, antique shopping, and a rich schedule of arts and festivals. Corvallis is home to not only Oregon State University but also major firms of Hewlett Packard, CH2M Hill, Good Samaritan Hospital, Samaritan Health Services, and the Corvallis Clinic, while still maintaining a solid small town, rural feel. Corvallis has been named one of the top ten places to live by Parade Magazine, the 8th best place to live in the nation by Men's Journal, and was recently just named the best green place to live by Country Home magazine.
With all that Corvallis has to offer within its city boundaries, its a delight to find that even more opportunities arise from its convenient location at the heart of the Willamette Valley. Up for a little variety? Within 90 miles of Corvallis, you'll find such diverse activities as world class skiing on one of Oregon's many mountain ranges, shopping in the Portland Metropolitan area, and hiking along the gorgeous Oregon Coastline. Even closer you'll find distinct Oregon wineries and all the outdoor activities one would want in the Suislaw National Forest.
