Permits Down for New Bend Homes

Bend Oregon New Home Construction

After many years of growth in new home construction in Bend, the number of permits pulled so far this year for single family homes are significantly down compared with previous years. From a high of 117 in March 2017, February 2019 had the lowest number of new home permits pulled in 4 years with less than 40.* February is typically a busy month for builders obtaining permits to build homes for summer sales.  This decline is significant as it is not following the normal trends.

Bend Commercial Real Estate Impacted by Lack of Inventory

Historically, our local commercial real estate market trends above the national averages. Our Central Oregon area commands very aggressive CAP rates due to supply and demand; when you put a magnifying glass to our market, we have very little Industrial property For Sale/For Lease and it would appear that the Urban Growth Boundary expansion recently passed will not solve this immediate problem.
