Salem Oregon Real Estate-West Salem Neighborhoods-Chatnika Heights

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Salem Oregon neighborhood information from your Salem Oregon Real Estate Agent/Consultant.

Chatnika Heights is located in West Salem, which is across the bridge and part of Polk County.  Chatnika Heights is home to a large selection of single-level, two story and split entry homes.  Chatnika Heights is located just outside of the city limits on Glenn Creek Road just past Doaks Ferry Road.  One great benefit of owning a home in Chatnika Heights is that it does sit outside of the city limits. Therefore, your property taxes are lower because you are not paying any city taxes.  This also means that your monthly payments will be lower if your loan includes a reserve account for property taxes.

Most of the homes in this area were built in the 60’s and 70’s.  However, you will find some homes that were built more recently, including some in the past 10 years.  There are many different styles, and streets have mature landscaping and are tree-lined.

If you live on Willow Creek, Lakeview or 31st Ct. you may be treated to a lovely backyard view of a private lake depending on where your home is located.
