Moving to Corvallis

A warm, innovative, vibrant community.

Relocating to Corvallis, Oregon will provide you with all the benefits of a friendly, small-town atmosphere and reward you with many of the services, amenities and activities you might expect in a bigger city.

Making Corvallis Home

Corvallis, the home of Oregon State University, has charming neighborhoods, a vibrant downtown complete with many one-of-a-kind restaurants and breweries, and is close to incredible outdoor activities.

Many homes in Corvallis are historic. In fact, we have two designated neighborhoods listed on the National Registry for Historic Places. And this charm extends to other neighborhoods throughout our wonderful community.

Corvallis was recently ranked 7th in the Creative Class, with 41.7% of our total workforce reflecting professionals in the fields of science and technology, design and architecture, arts, entertainment and media, and healthcare, law, management and education.

The vacancy rate in Corvallis is less than one percent due to high demand, especially when OSU students are in town, and the average price of a home is $271,716 in Benton County. Property taxes are $0.45 per $1,000 of assessed value.
