We loved the recent US News and World Report piece about the top 10 housing markets set to appreciate over the next decade.

Since it is home to Oregon State University as well as numerous public agencies, about a third of the area’s workers are employed by the government, says Mysty Rusk, the president of the Corvallis-Benton Chamber Coalition. At the same time, this intellectually curious university town has long possessed a creative, entrepreneurial spark.”
