When you hear somebody describe Bend, it always sounds too good to be true. Imagine relocating to a place with sunny skies and endless recreational opportunities in an emerging cosmopolitan atmosphere, but without the crowds, traffic, and pollution of the big city. Dog Fancy Magazine named Bend the “Dog friendliest city in the nation”; Outdoor Life Magazine put Bend at the top of the list as the place for “outdoor sportsmen”; and with the Mt. Bachelor Ski Area just up the road, USA Today referred to Bend as the “New Boulder”. Bend was also recognized by CNN Travel as one of the top 10 beer towns in the USA, the top biking town by Mt. Bike Action Magazine, the “Next Big City for Entrepreneurship” by Entrepreneur, and a “Top Place to Retire” by Where to Retire Magazine. These are just a few of the many accolades being praised on Bend by others, but perhaps Sunset Magazine put it best when they said “Whoever visits Bend, moves to Bend…”.

Low inventory of homes continues to spur rising prices in the Bend Real Estate market. Although as recently as January we saw increases to almost a 5 month supply of homes, according to Trendvision reports we are back to only a 3.2 month supply of homes as of June 2014. As a result, we continue to see a rise in home prices up about 15% since the first of the year. Other indicators that reflect this trend include an increase in prices per square foot, which is up from $158 to $172 per square foot (+9%), average sold price of homes up to $338,000 from $308,000 (+10%), and a decrease in days on market from 134 to just 106 (-26%), all since the first of the year.

Bend Oregon Real Estate Trends June 2014
National Real Estate Trends June 2014
Thanks to lower mortgage rates and increased supply of new homes hitting the market, there has been a sharp increase in the number of pending home sales over the past 30 days nationwide according to the National Association of Realtors®. The biggest gains in pending home sales has been in the northeast (+8.8%) and in the west(+7.6%). However, it should be noted that sales are down considerably in the west (11.1%) when compared to 1-year ago. For the remainder of the year, NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun predicts the market for home sales should continue to be positive due to "favorable mortgage rates, more inventory, and improved job creation."
Despite this optimistic report, Yun cautions that sales to first time homebuyers remains sluggish as "affordability and access to credit" continues to be a concern. So where the "flourishing stock market" has increased sales in the higher price brackets, sales of homes under $250,000 nationally are running about 10% behind last year's rates. This lack of affordable housing is expected to increase the price of apartment rentals about 8%. According to Yun, "Solid income growth and a slight easing in underwriting standards is needed to encourage first time home buyer participation, especially as renting becomes less affordable.
