We've thought for quite a while that we'd retire to the southern Oregon area. A few years ago, I read that Ashland home prices had gone through the roof. Now I read that even Medford prices are 45% overvalued.
So I have to work a few more years. I'm looking for a modest house on a half-acre of land. I'd like to raise and show Scottish Terriers and I love to garden. I found what looked like some reasonable prices for home in Roseburg -- is this town OK or one of the armpits?
I cannot afford to spend $600,000 on a house and retire at the same time. Maybe I should start looking at Tennessee?
