Woodburn Estates & Golf Reviews
- Alan S.|July 9, 2020This is a very nice place to live! Very quiet and safe. I think the HOA fees are very reasonable. The golfing is great and the membership cost is very reasonable. Most of the people that I have met in my neighborhood are very nice. I would highly recommend this place and it is a great place to retire!!
- Debra C.|December 29, 2018I've lived here over 2 years and just love it. There are always activities here if one chooses to participate, and I believe the HOA fee is extremely reasonable (I'm not a golfer). I love my little house and the neighbors are great. I'm very glad I chose to buy into this adorable little community.
- John H.|October 7, 2018I am not retired yet and find the location to be perfect for commuting. I really enjoy living here and the amenities are terrific when I have some additional time. Every place has pluses and minuses, WEG appears to have more pluses. The neighbors are great and my home is the perfect size so that I don't have to spend a bunch of time cleaning and maintaining. I think it is a fantastic value and good place to call home.
- John B.|March 9, 2017Nice community. Homes are older but overall the community is in nice conditions. Good location between Salem and the S. Portland cities with convenient access to the freeway making it easy to travel north and south between the two areas.
- Lorrie C.(Resident/Homeowner)|November 19, 2014I have been a resident member of the Woodburn Estates since 2004. It is a wonderful place to live. The 1508 homes on owner owned property were built from 1961-1999 and are 722-1867 sq ft.
Currently (2014) $525 is the annual HOA, and $2000 is a one time Deed Transfer fee which is put into the reserve fund to maintain all common properties, i.e the Pool, Hot-tub, Clubhouse, Fitness Center, Restaurant Facility, Facility Kitchen, Recreation Hall, Bingo Meeting Card Rooms and yes a Gorgeous Golf Course.
I have sold over 100 homes in the Estates and personally know that the vast majority find it a great place to live with excellent amenities.
The Woodburn Estates is located on the Intestate 5 corridor adjacent to the Outlet Mall which is the largest in the NW, and it is centrally located between Portland and Salem in the Beautiful Willamette Valley. Where wineries and Organic Farmers abound.
Every family, Every community has naysayers, unfortunately they can be the vocal minority.
Come life the 55 plus Resort Life style in the Beautiful Willamette Valley!
- Ken (Resident/Homeowner)|October 21, 2014I too am sorry I bought in here. $2,000 mandatory "initiation fee" when you buy a home. Nothing more than legalized extortion. Then there's the annual $500+ dues and $1,800 in property taxes. There are also several residents with nothing better to do, so they go around with a rule book in hand trying to find people in violation. I really think they get some perverse enjoyment out of trying to find neighbors in violation of some obscure rule and then reporting it.
Most of the money collected from residents seems to go to support the golfers. What's left sure isn't going into improving amenities for the non-golfing residents.
There are a lot of empty houses in the estates and property values have plummeted. For a 55+ community, I sure do see quite a kids, teenagers, and 20-30 year olds living in houses, too.
- Eileen W.|August 1, 2014We live in a gated community in Tehachapi, CA. Our HOA fees are $1320.00 per year and go up about every other year or so. Our property tax on our two bedroom 1.5 bath is $2,194. twice a year!!! We have a nine hole golf course and an outdoor swimming pool which is only open from memorial day to labor! We do have an equestrian center, but I want all of you to know that our Home Owners Assoc. is much worse than what was related in the reviews. You would be shocked! That is why we are looking in Oregon. Some things are better to just learn to live with and practice laughing more. Best Wishes, Eileen
- Susan L.|September 25, 2013I was out looking at resale homes here last month. Seems to me that given the price of the homes is so low, the HOA fees really are not all that bad. I've seen some places charging $300 or more per month, but then again those places have newer amenities. I guess it all depends on what is important to you but in my opinion the fees do not seem overly excessive for a golf course community. If I do buy here it looks like I'll have some remodeling projects on my to-do list. Every home I've looked at could use some cosmetic updates.
- Sharon (Resident/Homeowner)|May 31, 2013Compared to other places, the property taxes and HOA assessments aren't that bad. I'm very thankful to live in a place with rules that keep the community beautiful and safe.
- Tom (Resident/Homeowner)|May 28, 2013I'm sorry I bought a house in here. Used to be a pretty nice place to live, but people are moving out because the HOA is getting to picky. You are written up for the smallest things, and then have to defend yourself in front of the rules committee or face a fine. There are residents with nothing else to do other than roam around and file complaints against others. It's getting ridiculous! Every person moving in is required to join the HOA to the tune of $2,000 up front, and then the HOA annual fee is about $500 on top of property taxes which run $1,400 to $1,800. No wonder people are leaving! Those of us trying to sell are faced with declining property values, since fewer people want to move in because of the fees.
- Estate r.(Resident/Homeowner)|May 1, 2013I moved here in Oct of 2012. I don't play golf but if I did, I think that is quite reasonable. The people are very friendly and there is plenty going on if you wish to join in. Yes we have a HOA most places do, but look at what you get an indoor pool, spa hot tub, fitness room not sure about you but a gym membership cost more then that a year.
- Janice Aiken - Associate Member The Estates |September 25, 2012My husband and I live in Tukewilla but are Associate Members the the Estates in Woodburn, OR. Who ever wrote the review of May 13 is incorrect.
Home owner fees are $420 and for home homeowners there is an assessment of $72 each year. If you play golf that is an additional cost of $620 per year per person.
Associate Members also pay the $420 (no assessment fee) and $625 per person for golf.
This year they also are trying (on a trial basis) a pay as you play for golf. There are also punch cards that can be purchased.
The May 13th review sounds like a disgurntled homeowner that did not get what they wanted.
- Tammy (Resident/Homeowner)|May 13, 2012Property values are dropping, and there are lots of empty houses in here now as people are leaving in droves. The homeowner association rules are too strict, and association fees are now $520 plus. Most of the fees go to support the golfers and you have to pay them even if you don't golf. Add another $1500 or so each year in property taxes, and it's too expensive to live here.
