Real Estate Market Trends: October 2022
Just like that Fall is a thing of the past and Central Oregon’s first snow has arrived! With the cooling weather has come a cooling economy and interest rising, creating a bit of adjustment for our housing market. With all things considered, Central Oregon remains a highly desirable area that continues to outpace other markets around the state and country. October saw a decrease in homes on the market for Bend and Redmond, Oregon for the first time in a long time. Furthermore, the continual increase in mortgage rises has promptly ensued price reductions. The residential statistics for Bend & Redmond did only see a small decline in average list price to sale price and absolutely no movement for days on market. The unmatched draw of Central Oregon continues to drive the steady home prices and activity and inventory catching up with demand. Entering the early days of winter for home buying and selling, we are seeing the annual decline in activity.
Bend Market Report >>
Bend continues to be one the hottest places to live in country. Everything that Central Oregon has to offer is just uncanny. Even with a continuing shifting economy and real estate market, Bend and surrounding areas remain a very desirable place for buyers. October saw more market consistency from the previous month. 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 98% of asking. The average home isn’t lasting long in the Bend market as they’re still selling within a four to six week time frame!

Redmond Market Report >>
Number of homes rose quite substantially this last month for redmond, nearly topping 80 homes. The inventory for Redmond saw a small decline in active listings. While the average sale price to list price remained the same. The ebbs and flows of Redmond remained much smaller than what Bend is seeing. The average sale price was 98.8% 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.
