We have had an increasing number of clients moving to Longview and buying homes with VA loans. Longview is a great place to live, especially if you’re coming from Oregon. Property taxes are much lower than in Oregon, and if you are receiving any retirement income from the state of Oregon, that income is not taxable once you move to Washington. Longview also has great schools.
In the past few years, we have seen an increasing number of veterans moving to Longview, using their VA benefits to purchase a home, as VA is still the only loan type out there that allows you to get into a home with $0 money down.
