No one wakes up wishing they’d spent more time doing yard work or budgeting for expensive household repairs. Instead they wonder why they waited as long as they did to downsize to a more carefree lifestyle. Whether you have your eye on Portland, Eugene, Bend, or Salem, retiring in Oregon with Upside puts you in control of what comes next.
Another enticing reason for retiring in Oregon? Your Social Security retirement benefits are exempt from state income tax. And while you will pay taxes on other accounts like a 401(k) or an IRA, there’s no state sales tax and property taxes often trend lower than the national average.
Upside members pick their new homes from a large, hand-curated selection of unique apartments in great neighborhoods. They come in all shapes and sizes so it’s easy to find one that works for you. Membership also includes a personal Upside Manager who is always there to help connect you with the community resources that matter most. Check out a quick overview of retiring in Oregon in one of these Beaver State cities:
Portland, or “the City of Roses,” is known as a patchwork of unique neighborhoods dispersed throughout six distinct “quadrants.” (Yes, that’s a little confusing.) But all you need to know about senior living in Portland as a member of Upside, is that you can spend as much time as you want exploring these quirky neighborhoods.
At the southern end of the Willamette Valley lies Eugene, Oregon. This renaissance city has a “track record” of excellence – from the Market District and Downtown Eugene, to Whitaker and Oakway. No seriously. Eugene, OR is also known as TrackTown USA because it attracts elite athletes from all over who especially love running these streets.
Bend is a city founded upon world-class recreation. From whitewater rafting on the mighty Deschutes River to hiking and biking along the city’s miles upon miles of pristine trails, it’s easy to understand why outdoor enthusiasts fall in love with the thought of retiring in Bend, Oregon.
Salem is a friendly and well-kept city with access to parks, panoramic scenic vistas, nationally recognized vineyards, and more. So much more, in fact, that Salem is sometimes referred to as “the most Oregon part of Oregon.” That makes Salem a great choice for anyone in love with the idea of retiring in the Pacific Northwest.
