Moving to Independence
A move to Independence means a retreat in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Located in Polk County, this small town of 10,000 is just 15 minutes west of Salem, the capital of Oregon. Independence is known for its farmland and was settled on the west side of the Willamette River. On the outskirts of town, you’ll discover Rogue Brewery, a thriving craft-beer brand, set among the picturesque hillside and hops farm.
Independence students attend schools in the Central School District, Niche’s 7th most diverse school district in Oregon. The Central School District is made up of residents of Monmouth and Independence, which means students are well known by the time they graduate in this small, personable district. There are also plenty of college options nearby including: Western Oregon University, Willamette University, Oregon State University, and Chemeketa Community College.
Moving to Independence is a safe real estate investment with a median sale price of $395,000, which is up an astonishing 31% from the previous year. Due to its small size, real estate is very competitive. Properties typically have larger lots with lots of room to build on.
Wondering what weather to expect in Independence? Like much of the Pacific Northwest, the city gets more rainfall than the national average and fewer sunny days. However, despite the frequently overcast skies, the average temperature usually stays above freezing, so the city only gets about 2 inches of snow per year. The best time to visit Independence is during July and August when the temperature reaches the high 70s and low 80s with less cloud coverage.
