New Homes Priced To Compete with Short Sales and REO Properties??? You Heard Right!

Good news for buyers! If you have been watching the short sale properties in Medford and the rest of the Rogue Valley, you've no doubt seen or heard about a trend towards short sale inquiries from buyers. Buyers interested in short sale properties and bank owned properties (REO) are aware of the fantastic deals available right now, and are looking into investing in these properties for themselves. Let's face it, short sale homes are intriguing and offer the elusive prospect of "deals you simply cannot refuse".

However, buyers sometimes begin to look at these properties, and then decide to shy away. Whether it is discomfort with the auction process, the length of the short sale closing process, or worries about being able to fix and maintain properties that aren't quite move-in ready - buyers can quickly become leery of these homes. But good news is around the bend!

Buyers in Southern Oregon are about to find QUALITY BRAND NEW HOME  at prices that compete with short sales and REO (bank owned) homes. You read that correctly - New homes priced to compete with REO and short sale properties!

A local developer, recently broke ground on a new development project in North West Medford called the Candlewood Community. This community will consist lot / home packages starting at the unheard of price of $184,900. With numerous floor plans to choose from buyers can even customize their packages to fit the needs of themselves and their families. Learn more at:

This developer aims to put them back to work.
