Timing is everything.....and the potential of the Columbia River Crossing will definitely influence the commute. Working in Vancouver, your husband will be on a reverse commute so he should be golden in terms of working in Vancouver and living in Portland. Did you check out the Salmon Creek schools? The tax impact? Let me know if I can help; I am a Designated Broker in Washington and a Principal Broker in Oregon. 503-819-6923 email@example.com Best of luck!... more
I dont know why not. It could have extra large amounts of snow or ice in a winter period but most roads are plowed and well taken care of. You will just have to adjust your traveling time for the weather.... more
There is now a public bus that travels from St. Helens to Portland called the Columbia County Rider. It takes riders to downtown Portland as well as to the Rock Creek area of Beaverton/Hillsboro. From those locations, riders can access MAX and travel throughout the Portland area.... more
Having said all of that the commute will be 45 minutes to an hour and a half to downtown PDX and a little less to Beaverton and probably 45 minute to and Hour to Salem from McMinnville. McMinnville is a great town and so are Dundee, Newberg, Tigard, and Sherwood but the reality is that there are so many traffic lights on hwy 99 and with the bottle necks that occur most days...the question you ask is a fairly onerous one.
The real question is why you are not looking closer to these places that McMinnville?? Is there a super opportunity or draw there??
Just trying to help out.
