A recent subdivision went up that is cookie cutter housing. I dislike the similarity. Many vacant properties are in the area, but they are slow to be developed. Best place to live in town is NOT downtown.
Well in Grants Pass it depends where you live, because i live in an area where it is mainly middle to higher middle class people and in my area it is rare to see abandon houses or foreclosed homes. Many house here have at least 1/4 of an acher and there is also many farms with more than 5 achers. But if you make a lot of money you are likely to live in the surrounding mountains where all the 3 or 4 story mansions are, but an area where you will see a lot of abandon home is actually in the middle of the city called old towne because that is where many low income families usually live.
