Off-Grid living means different things to different people.

More than anything, it's a personal lifestyle choice. 
 Most people can agree that living off-grid means, at the very least, living without being connected to the power grid and relying on alternative power such as solar, wind, or generator, or no electricity at all. 
Others may see it as not being connected to any utilities, water, or sewer systems. 
There are as many variations of off-grid living as there are people who make the decision to live this lifestyle.
 There are many reasons you may want to live off grid. Maybe you want to have more freedom, live more simply, create less of a carbon footprint, be more self-sustainable, or just live a more rural lifestyle and be more connected to your environment.

Maybe you want to be self-reliant, grow or hunt your own food, or rely solely on the piece of ground you live on. 
Some people are looking for solitude and a home in a very remote area, or alternately, be closer to a community of like-minded people
There are people who want to live the off-grid lifestyle, but still need to have the internet for work or supplies, or a cell phone for emergencies, or rely on gasoline for a generator or vehicle. Perhaps they need to be a little closer to town for school or medical facilities.
Whatever off-grid means to you, let us help you find the perfect home or property that can help make your dreams a reality! 
The properties that we are including in our off-grid list are fairly remote, away from the large cities, and there may be a possibility of living your off-grid dream. Some of these will have power available if you choose to have conventional power, and for some of these it may be too far away to be financially viable. Call our office for more information if you see a property you are interested in!  Of course, you will need to check with the governing jurisdictions to ensure the viability of your plans, and what the requirements are. 
If you see any properties on our website that look like what you have been searching for contact us for more information! We have new listings daily.
Let us know what you are looking for and we will work hard to help you find the right place where you can live the lifestyle that makes the most sense to YOU!


~Just some friendly advice when traveling in rural Oregon, especially if you are from out of the area. ~
  • Do not rely solely on technology such as GPS for navigation. Do make sure all of your batteries and electronics are charged. 
            *This is especially true when visiting rural properties, many places in rural Oregon and in the mountains do not have cell service*
  • Printing out your maps and taking them with you is a good idea.
  • Make sure you know your travel route before you leave, and drive an appropriate vehicle for the roads.
  • Towns with gas or charging stations can be many miles away, keep your tank full or battery charged. 
  • Make sure you have emergency supplies, including blankets, a first-aid kit, a flashlight, food, and water and appropriate shoes and clothing.
  • Let someone know where you are, what your plans are, and when you are expected to return. Try not to deviate from your plan. 
  • Use common sense and follow appropriate safety precautions
