Real Estate Market Trends: February 2023

The short month of February has come and gone and with it some renewed action in the real estate market for Central Oregon. Housing prices have subsided a bit and leveled off with the increases in mortgage rates, however buyers are coming out early this spring in Bend & Redmond.

With spring coming soon, the Central Oregon market is showing signs of picking up early. Seasonality and the cold usually keep the number of  homes sold down, but both Bend and Redmond saw increases. It’s still important to keep an eye on these trends so that you know what’s happening and how it might affect your plans to buy or sell now and for the future. In addition, February saw a small decrease in active inventory for Bend and Redmond, Oregon. As continual fluctuations of the mortgage industry, so price reductions across most properties. The residential statistics for Bend & Redmond did see a small increase in average list price to sale price and the same movement for number of days on market. Even with some economy question marks, the unmatched draw of Central Oregon continues to drive the fairly steady home market. Entering the spring of 2023 home buying and selling, we are seeing increases and additional opportunities for both buyers and sellers.

Bend Market Report >>

The microbrew pub, outdoor mecca, Bend continues to be one the most desirable places to live in country. Everything that Central Oregon has to offer is just uncanny and even closer. Bend proper and surrounding areas remain a very desirable place for buyers. February saw a bit of economic and seasonal changing as we get closer to spring. The average list price continues to soften a bit with interest rates being twice as high from  a year ago, yet buyers are still itching to live in Bend and sale price was a stellar 98% of asking. The average home isn’t lasting long in the Bend market as they’re still selling within a five to eight week time frame!

Redmond keeps on keeping on as a great place to live in Central Oregon. With more and more opportunities for business popping up, people want to move there. The inventory for Redmond saw a small decline in active listings, but an increase in homes sold and sale price. We are still seeing historical highs for the area even with mortgage rate fluctuations. The average sale price was 99% of asking 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 more rises in interest rates continue to be a concern.
