The Bend high end real estate market grew considerably in 2018. Million dollar homes, including those built for speculation, have sold at larger numbers than those in 2017 with the greatest percentage increase in the $1,300,000 to $1,699,999 range (up 42.9%). **

What Will 2019 Bring to Bend OR Luxury Home Sales?
Although we cannot know definitively what 2019 will bring to the Bend high end market, we can see that the trends appear to be changing. 4th quarter 2018 saw home sales across the country dropping with fewer pending sales noted. The Bend feeder markets of the California Bay Area and the Seattle Metro have flattened with home sales taking longer and home price reductions occurring. In Bend, inventory levels are gradually growing and price reductions are common. This is a normal market trend in winter, but with the current volatility of the stock market and uncertainty with the federal government shut down, it remains to be seen how the luxury home sale trends will evolve in 2019.
