What are Our Predictions for Bend Oregon Luxury Home Sales?
The trends show a growing demand for luxury homes in Bend. Although we are seeing a drop in the sold home prices, this can reflect the increase in new homes being built in the $1,000,000 to $1,200,000 price point. These homes are typically smaller than the "McMansions" built in Bend a decade ago and better suit the lifestyle of many of today's Central Oregon buyers. This idea is supported with the dramatic decrease in the months of inventory. It appears builders have found the niche for the luxury home buyer in Bend. As long as Bend Oregon builders continue to build what Bend home buyers want and at a price they can afford, we predict continued strong sales in the Bend luxury home market.
