25740 yamhill river rd. yes its in the flood plain, it dose sit a little higher than the neighbors which yard dose flood. foundation needs to be raised its one 1ft high, Roof is ceder shake in very poor condition, need to be replaced & the front & back deck are rotten needing replacement. very nice large living room hard wood floors.wood stove in home has been there for years, doesn't meet new requirement. its not a true 2 bed room. you have to go thru one of the rooms to get to the kitchen, kitchen is very small. wiring need to be check and possible redone by a licensed professional, home owner did wiring him self. other heat source is baseboard heaters that come on by them self's at times even with break box switch is shut off. bathroom is also the laundry room. house is settling kitchen floor is showing settlement. the place has 3 exit/entrance doors. very large windows only two windows are side up one in a very small bedroom and the 1/2 bedroom. septic tank unable to be located will need a profession to locate it. it will need to be pumped out. there has been multiple tenants in the residents, home owner hasnt had it pumped out nor could say where it is. old road/hwy ran thru property became part of property when state/county abandoned it., natural gas line runs underground thru property, project schedule for spring 2014 to replace natural gas line. property line to the south is unclear of corner stake markers. whole property is a triangle lot that is right next to hwy 18 sit below hwy. very noise place to live. front view is of hwy18 has billboards and at night its very well lighted up. the property is residential / commercial. as of 4-15-14 when i stopped by the property as a tenant/business renting it. good investment property if you could keep the current tenant in the place. seem when the office gal allowed me to see the place, tenant had boxs and was packing up to move. when asked by the tenant/business was moving office gal was unable to say why but they had to move by the 1st of may. tenant is paying 900.00 a month. the asking price is to high for what the property is worth, there is no equity in the property, the building is aging & need work. according to my research thru banking agency reports original bought by current owner for $46,000, and took out extra mortgage loans last reported bank note was owing $90,000,. my company buys and resale house and this property isnt worth it for us to invest in. to much needs to be done to it before its bought. most its worth is in current market is 60,000
so Buyer Beware.

Oh and population is about 1,900 ruffly. Great lil old logging town that sits a lil more into the coast range and doesn't have that valley feel. Just trees, hills, and nice fresh air!!! Has a very nice fishing pond and two different rivers to fish (Willamina CK) and (Yamhill River). Also very good hiking and hunting in the area. Spirit Mountain Casino is about about a 10 min. drive and the coast about 30 to 45 mins depending on traffic.

LOL no...this property IS NOT in a flood plain and actually sits up on a hill. I actually lived in this house some years ago. It's a cute little house and yard, but I personally DO NOT think it's worth what they want for it.

Yes this property is located in a floodplain. Furthermore the language in the write up stating.... "BRAND NEW BARN/SHOP offering .....a fully framed out Apartment with a Living room, Bedroom and Bath.” An apartment or secondary residence is not a permitted use for this property. For more information contact the Yamhill County Department of Planning and Development.
