Bend Luxury Homes are Selling!

Harper Road

Ever since coming out from the housing recession, the value of Bend single family homes on less than an acre has increased. From an average sales price of $230,000 in spring of 2011, Bend home values have gone up to exceed $547,000 June 2020.  During the same time, the months of inventory have dropped from 13.3 months to less than 2 and the price per square foot has risen from $113 to $268. From a low of two $1,000,000 plus Bend homes on less than an acre selling in all of 2010, June 2020 alone saw 23 sold.*

Bend Premier Real Estate brokers are currently working with many million dollar buyers, and people calling the office or registering on the company website are frequently searching for high end listings.

Lack of Inventory Impacting Bend Real Estate Sales

Bend Premier Real EstateThe June 2020 MLS figures have been published and it is clear that a lack of inventory is greatly impacting Bend home sales. Ever since coming out of the great recession, we have been in a seller's market with less than six months supply of homes.  However, despite the Covid-19 pandemic (or perhaps because of it), we are seeing many home buyers actively searching for Bend homes and now have less than 1.5 months supply. For Bend properties priced less than $400,000, our brokerage has been involved in several multiple offers - some as high as nine offers on the same home. This is creating a sense of desperation for some looking for a Bend home this summer.

Bend Real Estate Sales Impacted by Covid-19 Pandemic

Bend Oregon Real Estate Trends

The May 2020 real estate sales figures have been published and the second full month of the Covid-19 pandemic and its subsequent impact on the Bend economy is over. Contrary to the thought process of many, Bend single family real estate sales were extremely strong in May. The biggest limitation to sales was the lack of inventory with sellers either delaying listing or pulling listings off the market. Buyers, however, have entered the market in force and are purchasing Bend single family homes, driving inventory levels below 2 months.

When May 2020 is compared with May 2019, Bend single family homes on less than an acre show the following changes:

  • Average sales price down .5% to

Bend Real Estate Sales Down in April

Bend Oregon Real Estate Trends

The first full month of the Covid-19 pandemic impacted Bend single family homes with sales significantly down over the same month in 2019. Some buyers lost jobs which in turn kept them from qualifying for their mortgage. In other cases, sellers took their homes off the market not feeling confident to sell during the stay at home orders. Other buyers delayed their trips to Bend and canceled appointments to view homes. While Bend home sales still are occurring, it is different than it was before Covid-19.

When April 2020 Bend single family home sales are compared with April 2019, the following differences can be noted:

  • Homes available for sale down 16% from 971 to 811*

Central Oregon Real Estate Sales Feeling Impact of Covid-19 Pandemic

Bend Premier Real Estate

The March 2020 real estate trends have been published and they reflect both the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and the closings from strong February home sales. Central Oregon schools shut down Friday, March 13th and stay at home became the norm the following week.  Since the start of the pandemic, home sales have dropped, new listings have slowed, and more sale fails than normal have occurred, often due to buyers losing jobs and no longer qualifying for loans.  However, Central Oregon real estate sales are still happening, although at a different rate than normal for this time of year.
