I'm looking to re-locate to one of these areas. I'm from the Pacific Northwest (Portland/Bend) but I've been away for a long time. I've been to both areas but quite a while ago.

I want that high plains dry instead of the wet stuff...LOL.

I'll be living outside the city far enough to have a couple of acres for a horse but close enough to commute to work.

The big question is work in these areas. I live in Georgia right now and I'm a real estate title examiner and work for a law firm but work in the court houses every day doing research. Does anyone work for a title company? It is my understanding that they do the title work and not law firms. If so I'd sure like some info on jobs, and salaries in this area of work.

Also, for you horse people, can you recommend some vets, farriers, ect.

Cost of a small property. I don't need much, my children all have four legs. I hate house keeping so a small house is much more preferable to larger.

I'd also like to find out about zoning laws as far as horse keeping is concerned.

I'm also posting this in the Oregon forum, for the Klamath and Lagrande areas. so I appologize if they seem alike.

i find it amusing that some people expect others to do their leg work instead of spending a few hours googling for facts themselves.

do you bring anything to the table to contribute or do you just expect others to do your homework for you?

As far as keeping a horse, as long as you are
outside city limits, you can keep livestock. There
isn't any special zoning for it, at least in eastern WA.

PM me for vets and farriers.

As far as other people doing legwork for others.....I beleive this is a FORUM you can or cannot reply depending if you want to or not, your not under any obligation whatsoever to answer peoples questions. So..its not EXPECTING others to do "legwork" its ASKING if they ALREADY KNOW. Get a life "washington native"

Spokane is more of a real city than the Yakima Valley. I responded to an earlier post on Yakima valley, I think you could find a spot somewhere along the I-82 corridor that would work for you, you didn't ask but I would suggest getting more like 5-10 acres if you can stand it, I had a 5-acre plot in Iowa and it was too big for a yard but too small to do anything that looked like I was farming. Now have 13 acres and lease grazing, good tax writeoff. Honestly not more work than 5 acres IMHO. 2 acre plots would probably be some sort of "country subdivision" which to me is an oxymoron..

I think your best shot at finding a relatively good price for a small house would be along I-82 between Tri-Cities and Yakima, less demand and the winter is dryer so less commuting hassle. But I have not priced houses around Spokane.

I think either area would work for your keeping of horses though others here might be more helpful. Yes, title companies do the type of work you're talking about in Washington. I know there are several title companies in Spokane (some local, some national) and Spokane is bigger than Yakima so you're chances of finding something might be greater but I can't say for sure. I would assume salaries would be similar as would cost of living.
