Comparing Washington and Oregon

Your move from Washington to Oregon will remain consistent in most aspects. However, each state is different in a few important areas:

  • Cost of Living: You’ll come to find that Oregon has a drastically lower cost of living compared to Washington, which includes the cost of real estate, groceries, childcare, etc.   
  • Taxes: The biggest change when moving from Washington to Oregon is how much you pay in taxes. Washington does not require citizens to pay state or local income taxes. When you move to Oregon, you can expect to pay 5-9% on all taxable income.
  • Open Space: You’ll notice in Oregon, small-cities and rural areas make up one-third of the population. Compared to Washington, which is home to higher populated urban areas.

It’s important to investigate important financial factors so you are prepared to handle your new cost of living, but also to understand the community you are about to make your home.


Finding Activities and Open Spaces

It’s important that you engage your new community by finding fun activities. To get a start on that, we have come up with a list of top things to do and see in Oregon:

  • Mount Hood National Forest: Peaking at 11,000 feet, Mount Hood is Oregon’s largest mountain and is home to 1.2 million acres of natural beauty. There are 4 designated wilderness areas, and includes over 1,200 miles of trails.  
  • Crater Lake National Park: Located 240 miles south of Portland, within the Cascade Mountains, Crater Lake National Park is consistently one of the most visited parks in Oregon. Beautiful views and easy-to-walk trails makes the roughly 4 hour drive worth it.

Where do I Get Packing Supplies?

From belts to bubble wrap to dollies, moving blankets, moving boxes, and totes, there’s a lot of packing supplies needed for a safe move. Be sure to start getting these items together early on if you are packing yourself.

First, check to see if your friends and family have any supplies left over from a recent move. After this, check in with your movers. They typically will sell all of the packing supplies you could need at a great price or will include them with your move.
