River Front Property in Southern Oregon: Important Things to Consider

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

Many dream about owning a water front home along one of Southern Oregon’s famous rivers. There are several things to consider before purchasing one. For example it is very important before you sign your name on the dotted line that you know the relations ship of the house to the flood plain.

“The Rogue River is Grants Pass’ best known scenic and recreational feature. But heavy rains can turn our normally peaceful river into a raging current that can – and will – reclaim nearby low lands as its own.”

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Finding the right place that fits your lifestyle requires a bit of thought. One of the big things is figuring out how the location of the house on the property sets in relation to the flood plain. During time of high water it could mean the difference between security and fear of loosing everything.
