» The Rogue Valley is a very affordable place to live. Cost of living, property taxes and state income taxes are lower than most big cities on west coast. Our average commute is only about 15 minutes, so you save a lot on gas and time. Recreation is in abundance as well which generally has a nice, often free, price tag for entertainment.
