Historic Homes in Ord

One major advantage of living in Ord and Valley County is the low cost of living compared with nearly every other location in the U.S.  Here you’ll find information on local housing options along with local lenders to help you find the home you want at a cost that is affordable. Those savings mean more money in your pocket. The 2008 recession had little to no impact on Ord as our home values in our community continue to climb each year.
