Why Lebanon, Oregon is a nice place to live

Lebanon is a small city in Linn County, Oregon located in the state’s northwestern part and southeast of Salem. With a population of around 18,500, this town offers a dense suburban feel that attracts young families and retirees looking for a safe and tight-knit community to call home. 


If you’re looking for a quaint mobile home community with amenities like a recreational center, library, and walking trails, you may want to visit Santiam Village, which consists of two stunning neighborhoods (North and South) that are surrounded by mature pine trees and the breathtaking view of Cheadles Lake. 


Despite being nestled into pristine landscapes, Santiam Village South and Santiam Village North are just a short drive from major retailers like Walmart, banks, restaurants and community parks. Call us at 541-258-4030 to learn more about these two stunning mobile home parks. 


Is Lebanon, OR an excellent place to live?


Yes, this city ranks well in cost of living, diversity, crime rate, employment and education. And thanks to its tight-knit communities, proximity to nature and travel destinations, and a positive job growth market, it’s not surprising that a growing number of people have been moving into the town in recent years. 


But for the most part, what makes a great city “great” boils down to one’s preference. Some residents might prefer a smaller city dotted with suburban and wooded areas, while others might like living in a megacity with bustling streets and exciting nightlife. 


Is it affordable to live in Lebanon, Oregon?


In recent years, Lebanon’s cost of living has been 9-9.4% lower than the US average. Note that affordability is one of the most important factors when moving to a new place; after all, you don’t want your housing cost to eat up a significant chunk of your monthly salary. A good rule of thumb is that it shouldn’t exceed 30% of your monthly gross income.


Meanwhile, the affordable cost of living is partnered with positive job growth (1.4% increase from last year) and a shrinking unemployment rate, a trend that is expected to continue in the coming years. 


As of this writing, Lebanon is ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in the US as more families from densely packed cities look for a more affordable town to raise their children that also offers them a variety of job opportunities.
