Consider Moving To These Three Communities In Oregon’s Mid-Willamette Valley

The Mid-Willamette Valley in Oregon is a great place to settle down if you’re looking for family-friendly communities between Eugene and Portland. The Valley is full of farms, miles of hiking trails, and is known as a top wine producing region in Oregon. If you’re new to Oregon, the state has a mix of forests, mountains, beaches, and city life. It’s essentially perfect for any person. Consider moving to Albany, Corvallis, or Lebanon and Valley Brokers will help you find your perfect home.


Home to Oregon State University, Corvallis is the perfect place to reside if you’re planning on attending classes or teaching there. Corvallis has all the things to do that a big city has, but packed into a tight-knit and friendly community. According to Corvallis’ official website, it was ranked 7th in the Creative Class with over 40% of its workforce in creative fields. There are plenty of opportunities if you’re in those fields. The downtown area is full of new restaurants, wineries, and breweries. It’s also a great place for outdoor activities with the William L. Finely National Wildlife Refuge nearby and the city itself is bikeable. You can even order a relocation kit on the Corvallis website if you’re planning on moving to the city and look at area apartment resources.


Lebanon is a scenic small town known for its fertile farmlands and annual Strawberry Festival. You’ll love the abundance of fresh fruit at the area’s farm stands. The Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital and Lebanon Schools are both huge employers in the area. There are also seven elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, and two private schools. Lebanon’s community is extremely family-friendly with its area community events, parks, and schools. Visitors and residents love the year round hiking in the Willamette National Forest, golfing at Mallard Creek, and rafting down the Santiam River.


Albany is the 11th largest city in the state and is situated on the beautiful Calapooia and Willamette Rivers. The rivers are great if you love water sports and the outdoors. There are also 1,200 acres of country parks and access to nearby state parks. You’ll enjoy just walking down the city streets to admire the historic homes, perusing small shops, view the historic 1909 carousel, and watching wood-carvers. There are also great restaurants in the area you can experience through culinary tours and local farmers markets. The area is very safe for kids and the city even has a summer passport program for kids to help them get outside.
