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. Our local market in most cases this year has positive absorption rates for office and retail as well. Commercial Market Conditions

What’s Up on the National Front?

Our local commercial real estate market trends about a year behind what we experience in the residential market. This is consistently true and while residential

The Bend Commercial Real Estate Market Shows Limited Inventory

The latest census predicts that the population of Bend will be 130,000 by 2030. With just under 95,000 people currently residing in the city limits, and just 2,380 acres recently added to the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB), new density philosophies will certainly be needed to accommodate this growth.

Bend Planners have identified a handful of “Opportunity Areas” throughout the city.  Several of these, The Old Mill Korpine property, the east Greenwood District and the Bend Central District (BCD) are currently being considered by the city to become urban renewal areas, and promise to drastically alter the face of this once sleepy logging town.

The BCD is gaining the most traction. Brooks
