I have lived in most areas in the state of Oregon at some point in my life. And one thing that I know is that the weather is very different depending on where you live.
People have a view of Oregon as being gray and rainy. While that is true for the majority of the population of Oregon, that's because the majority of Oregon's population live the in the Willamette Valley.
So I'm going to break the state into a few general areas, and give a couple of stats for the differences in the weather. You will find that I believe the Rogue Valley has the best weather in the state. However, my daughter lives in Eugene, and thinks the weather there is the best. But she cannot stand the sun, or warm weather. So that is true for her.
To me the Willamette Valley is too grey and wet. Bend and east of the Cascades is too cold in the winter. Funny thing is that Central Oregon is considered to be very sunny, but the Rogue Valley has more days of full sunshine. That actually surprise me a little.
Rogue Valley (Ashland, Medford, Central Point). In town properties. With the radical elevation differences, there are variations if you get into the mountains, but overall the houses are located in the valley.

"Our experience with Christy Seigfried in one word would be PHENOMENAL. Our family had a family emergency that required us to sell our home. When we decided to sell our home Christy Seigfried was the first and only person we would trust to do the right thing for us. We called her and she was there the next day. Christy understood how much stress we were under and how extremely important it was for us to sell our home ASAP. She had our home on the market on a Friday and we had multiple offers on Saturday. Monday we were excepting an offer. We had never sold a home. We had lots and lots of questions. If we did not understand something. Christy would explain it until we understood it completely. She is very professional an knowledgeable in her field. When we are ready to purchase our next home we are definitely hiring Christy Seigfried. We recommend anyone that is purchasing or selling a home, to call Christy Seigfried. She will go the extra extra mile for you!!!! Thank you Christy Seigfried."
