With the new year upon us in Central Oregon, Bend’s real estate market remained brisk in December with the number of active listings down 12% while at the same time pending properties were down 18% and sold properties were down 14% from November’s pace. The real estate trends remain positive due to many
homebuyer’s abilities for remote working and where many are able to upscale their lifestyle as compared to urban metropolitan areas. In Duke Warner Realty’s monthly Trend Reports we offer valuable insights by analyzing last month’s real estate market activity in Central Oregon. This information can be a beneficial resource for any upcoming or changing trends we might see during the first quarter of 2022.
