It seems that Englewood is certainly one of the nicer, vintage neighborhoods I have worked in. Jan Ree is nice per Melina who works there, and that is also north Salem like Englewood. Both are NorthWest like I suggested to Sujita in my first response. It DOES get dicey as you head east toward the Interstate 5 , so as I opinioned stay northwest and maybe consider areas where elevation increases. I opinion Englewood affordable based on pricings in other, non-Salemmarkets, but in Salem it's likely one of the more expensive, vintage areas. I do know that tons of 1031 exchange money is targeted for Salem since it is the more 'bang for buck' metro markets in Oregon. Call Melina for a local opinion, it's likely more accurate.
