Redmond Home Sales Strong Through 3rd Quarter 2021

Redmond OR Real Estate

We haven't looked exclusively at Redmond Oregon single family home sales for six months.  We know that home sales have been strong throughout Central Oregon with prices up and inventory levels down. But as a community without a lot of single family luxury homes, Redmond attracts a great number of people for whom Bend has become unaffordable.  Although a smaller community to Bend, Redmond has also had prodigious growth over the past decade.  The Covid lockdowns and work from home orders have also impacted Redmond with more people moving there than available inventory creating bidding wars and pushing home prices up.

Redmond, La Pine, Prineville and Sisters All Showing Strong Single Family Home Sales

Three Sisters and Horses

We have been focusing a lot on Bend real estate trends over the past year, but it is important to look at what has been happening in other cities in Central Oregon. We often look upon Redmond, La Pine and Prineville as wonderful towns in which home prices are more affordable and can be great options for buyers for whom Bend is too expensive. Sisters' home prices have been more comparable to those in Bend, but its unique lifestyle, size and location closer to the Willamette Valley make it a small town that may be a destination location for very specific buyers.

The real estate trends for Redmond, La Pine, Prineville and Sisters follow similar patterns to those

Central Oregon Cities Show Varied Growth

Bend Premier Real EstateOut of area buyers often think of Bend exclusively when they consider moving to Central Oregon. However, Central Oregon has several towns and small cities, all with their own urban "vibe" and lifestyle.  Bend is by far the largest town with its population now pushing 100,000. However, Redmond has been a great neighbor to Bend with home prices considerably less than the larger city to the south. 

Besides Bend and Redmond, Sisters offers both a closer location to the western half of the state plus a more intimate small town feeling, permeated by seasonal tourist traffic from nearby Black Butte Resort and such renowned festivals as the Sisters Quilt Show and the annual rodeo.

Numbers of Central Oregon Single Family Homes for Sale Up

Bend Oregon Real Estate

One of the key components on the health of a real estate market is the inventory levels of the homes selling. In a balanced market, there are 6 months of supply.  In Central Oregon, there has been a great lack of inventory for several years in most of the cities which has led to a seller's market with rising home values, multiple offers and in some cases, a certain desperation for buyers to find a home.  Full price offers or even offers over asking have been the norm at certain prices for a while.  However, there appears to be a shift happening in much of Central Oregon with the number of single family residential homes available for sale rising.
