10. Coos Bay
Home Values: $164,100 (19th worst)
Unemployment Rate: 11.2% (23rd worst)
When you’re looking at science and data, Coos Bay is the worst place you can live in Oregon. Let’s see why.
The unemployment rate here is 11.2%. The schools are underfunded, and property values are well below the state average. A home costs $164,100, which is a sure sign of lack of demand.
You have a 1 in 16.0 chance of being the victim of some type of property crime here every year. That’s not fun, either.
Coos Bay is a far drive south from Louisville.
