You are correct, Salem doesn’t have suburbs. If you need a realtor in Sherwood look to Leslie McCabe. She and her husband are experts in town and we used them. Yes prices are higher there but still very reasonable. Woodhaven is a very nice planned community there but also the area off Sunset and Baker Rd, up in the Highpoint areas. These are wonderful established areas and then there is a ton of new construction on the other side of 99. You might also look to Wilsonville around Villebois or in Dundee. With the new bypass there it really has helped with traffic.

Sorry, I've been slow to get back, have been out of town.

Suze, I need to explain the Duck thing more. It's not 'we' couldn't live in Corvallis as Ducks. We have Duck friends who adamantly refuse to set foot there, so wouldn't come visit us. BTW, Eugene has the highest % of returning alums living in Eugene, for the whole country.

You don't owe me an explanation. Besides, nothing you could say would make me understand -lol!

Well, we got a full price offer on our house 2 days after listing. I know there's many a slip between cup and lip, but it's looking more and more like Salem may be a 'go'.

Congratulations! I am not sure what kind of home you are looking for. West Salem is really nice. But I think Keizer has some new construction too. Good luck in your next steps!

Mms, yes it would be fun to meet. I've read your posts for ages. I met one Fodorite in France in 2005 but didn't realize it until I got back home. Apparently also our husbands talked in the hotel parking lot in Les Petit de Andelys.

Hopingtotravel—Send me a message when you are ready😊 I met former Fodorite Balitrav a few years ago as we lived close to each other. We have become good friends!

Mms, Thank you. Will do. I think the move may be mid-late April, then of course getting set up will be a scramble. Do you actually live in Sherwood?

Hopingtotravel--We moved away just over a year ago, and we lived right in Sherwood. I am back there about once a month, so still very in step with it.
