Bend Continues Strong Sellers' Market
Part of the increase in sales during 1st quarter 2018 compared with 1st quarter 2017 has to be attributed to our relatively mild winter. We cannot forget the record breaking snow fall we had last winter, and when that is factored in, the increase in inventory and sales can at least in part be based on the fact that snow did not limit access and sellers were more likely to list this winter than last.
Low inventory levels continue to be an issue with the rising prices and we still see no end in sight. There appears to be a leveling off in asking price across all price points, but that may be attributed to more mid range homes being available for purchase than in the past year.
