Living in Madras has it's challenges as does most small farming communities. IE: Unless your into AG, there is NO SHOPPING (other than grocerys, the nearest clothing/shoes or household goods are in redmond/bend ), the health care can be challenging, have to go to Redmond/Bend or other places for entertainment IE: Movie Theathers, or more than just fast food dining, or just to listen to music. If your looking for a safe place for school age childern, I would suggest Culver or Metlouis as the schools are much better there. I moved here from Forest Grove Oregon in 2001 and thought that I was getting the same small town community, I was very wrong. Madras is the in-between town. It's a small town with inner city issuses's with drugs/gangs and just NOTHING to do for our youth (again unless, your into AG programs. Which again are better in culver.) If you doubt just check out the Madras Pioneer

I'm not the Realtor to help you in Madras, and I've never lived there. BUT, I have friends who have lived there and nearby and they tell me Madras is a nice "plain-Jane" kind of town. Not as commercial as Bend or Redmond - more rural oriented. If you like the climate and you want a small-town atmosphere, Madras will do that.

Since real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods, consider researching online, take the time and visit neighborhoods, drive around areas, possibly chat with locals, etc., then make a determination--will your comfort level be reached...also see links
