Majestic Broken Top Mountain
It's a beautiful February in Central Oregon with fresh powder at Mt Bachelor, WinterFest in Bend, night skiing at HooDoo, ice skating at the Inn at the 7th Mountain and more. Read below for a private snowshoe tour with a Park Ranger, market updates, the 97 and Costco, new Avenir Realty agents and relevant articles. Let us know what else you want to hear about!
It's prime time for Sellers to capitalize on improved market conditions. With inventory dwindling to 288 homes and the Market Action Index trending upward, there's a clear advantage in favor of sellers. The median price of new listings in Bend sits at $949,950, signaling strong confidence in the market's growth potential. Sellers can expect heightened buyer interest and potentially quicker sales, making it an opportune time to list their properties.
With a Market Action Index of 38, reflecting a slight seller's advantage, home sales are outpacing available inventory. Buyers should anticipate potential upward pricing pressure in the near future as competition intensifies amidst limited supply. If interest rates nudge downward as expected, Buyers will need to act more quickly. For example, a home in NWX went pending in 4 days and our Buyer will have to be backup position, and one of our acreage properties just got a cash offer. Buyers: don't overlook homes for sale with contingencies and also ask to see withdrawn listings which are likely to be re-listed in the Spring. Let's get creative!
Average Sold Prices in Last 6 Months:
Sisters tops the charts with a whopping $959,962 average sold price. Sale prices have come in at 97% - 98% of the latest list price in all markets, with average days on market ranging from 55 -70 days.
