Real Estate Market Trends: August 2022

Just like that September, and the school year is here! What a summer in Real Estate for Central Oregon. We saw increases in homes on the market for Bend and Redmond, Oregon markets as well as price reductions due to increase in rates. With that said Central Oregon continues to outpace other areas around the state and country. The residential statistics for Bend & Redmond did see additional declines in list price from the previous records we’ve seen. However, average sale price remained strong for the area. The unmatched draw of Central Oregon continues to drive the steady home prices, but with inventory catching up with demand time on market as seen an increase across the board. Entering the last days of summer home buying and selling, we saw a small growth in the number of active listings compared to the prior month in Bend and for the Redmond area.

Bend Market Overview >>

Let’s face it, people want to live in Central Oregon. Even with a continuing shifting real estate market, Bend and surrounding areas remain a fairly hot commodity for buyers. July saw another increase of inventory into the high 300s for active listings. The average list price continues to soften a bit with interest rates being twice as high from this time last year, yet buyers are still itching to live in Bend and sale price was a stellar 100% of asking. The average home isn’t lasting long in the Bend market as they’re still selling within a four week time frame!

Redmond Market Overview >>

Inventory is up again in Redmond with a decent increase in active listings. While the average list price declined again, it remained much smaller than what Bend is seeing. The average sale price was 98.4% which possibly offset the smaller decline in list price. The area’s land and acreage market saw a consistent reduction following suite with the previous months as material costs, availability, and rise in interest rates continue to be a concern.
