How to Have a Voice in the Future of Deschutes County Development - 10/19/09 07:51 PM
For the first time since 1979, Deschutes County has drafted a new Comprehensive Plan, the document prepared by a city or county in Oregon to provide a general overview of existing and future land use. Part of a statewide planning initiative instituted by Senate Bill 100 in 1973, the Comprehensive Plan was designed to provide direction on land use issues for the next 20 years. Well, 30 years have come and gone, so it's high time the plan was overhauled. Although it has been amended and updated over the years -- and a review of the plan that began in 1988 (1 comments)
September 2009 Real Estate Market Snapshot for Tumalo, Oregon - 10/13/09 11:33 AM
For the third month in a row, Tumalo's real estate market was most notable for its decreases (which is actually good news). Once again, the number of Active Residential with Acreage listings shrank (from 93 to 86), which continued Tumalo's downward trend in inventory (from a high of 99 RW listings in January). Similarly, the supply again decreased, to a 26-month supply in September (compared to a 40-month supply in February). That decrease in supply can be attributed in part to the ongoing increase in sales. And this month, eight of the 13 Pending and Closed sales were above $500,000 -- (0 comments)
September 2009 Real Estate Market Snapshot for Sisters, Oregon - 10/12/09 07:14 PM
As summer turned into fall, the Sisters real estate market continued to gain momentum. August's strong increase in sales carried through into September, with 27 Pending and Closed sales (up slightly from 25 in August). The difference this month was that all but one of the 14 Pending sales were Single Family Residences, with only one Residential With Acreage Pending sale). Also noteworthy is a significant decrease in inventory (down from 217 in August to 194 in September), which is a welcome change in what was an increasing inventory throughout the year (there were 136 active Residential listings in January).

How fitting that just in time for my 100th blog post, Sisters was named one of the Top 100 Adventure Towns in National Geographic Adventure magazine. The October issue provides a handy state-by-state guide of the country's "top outdoor hubs," which touts the Sisters area for its hiking, rafting, road-cycling, mountain-biking and skiing. Receiving specific nods are the McKenzie River (for its Class III rapids), Black Butte (for its scenic hiking), Smith Rock (for its sport climbing) and Mount Bachelor (for some of the best ski runs in the West). Too bad the guide neglected to mention our much-closer (albeit (1 comments)
