Contact - Best Bend Homes for Sale
In 2013, 148 homes sold in Sunriver-- an exciting community that is Central Oregon's mecca for every kind of outdoor enthusiast; the ideal spot for a second home. Sunriver is also a wonderful multi-generational gathering place . . . a place where memories are made. Enjoy golf, tennis, horseback, white-water rafting, and more.
The landscape is graced by the Cascade Mountains on the west side and the Newberry Volcanic National Monument to the east. A river (Deschutes) runs through it, and Mt. Bachelor is a quick jaunt up the road. The Sunriver Oregon inventory of homes is just as exciting.
2015 was a stellar year for real estate in Central Oregon. 2441 homes sold in Bend . . . up almost 9% from the previous year. Total dollar volume was up appreciably. Both median and average sales prices took healthy bumps (around 8%). We also saw a stretch of seven consecutive months with at least 200 residential sales . . . numbers not seen in more than six years.
While local MLS inventory is presently near an all-time low, and there is certainly a shortage of affordable housing, there are still Bend homes available in all styles and price points. Choices include everything from new construction on the east side for the first-time buyer, to quaint west side cottages and vacation rentals, to riverfront condos and townhomes, to executive golf course homes in Broken Top, Tetherow, and Awbrey Glen.
Rates remain low (presently under 4%), and the investor/rental market is hopping! Prices will continue to rise. The Bend real estate market is humming, and the number of distressed sales is running less than 5% .
It's a great time to be either a buyer or a seller.
Redmond has been one of Central Oregon's fastest growing regions for the last ten years. There is no doubt that the high quality of life (and more affordable pricing than Bend) in this area is responsible for this influx of new residents.
Redmond saw the median price jump 12% (to almost $200,000) in 2014; 766 homes sold . . . for 2015, available for sale inventory is near an all-time low--just 4.6 months (the NAR considers 6 months of inventory to be a "balanced market"). Now is the time!
