central oregon homes for sale: The Log Home in Central Oregon's Declining Market - 02/15/10 04:24 PM
Log homes are one of the most dreamed about homes in Central Oregon.  A log home is generally more expensive to build, insure and they generally sell for more.  Three Rivers South, an area just outside of Sunriver, Oregon has several log homes for sale.
Two such homes are currently available for sale as short sales.  I know, I know you all groan at the word.  Short sales are not as bad - yes they can take longer, but a short sale is just like any other transaction we just have a couple additional steps.  Buyers, do not let those two … (6 comments)

central oregon homes for sale: We Found The House - The Price Is Right - Now For The Offer - 04/08/09 04:32 PM
I love working with first time home buyers.  The feeling through out the transaction all the way to closing and after is so rewarding.  Today, a young couple I have worked with for 2 and a half years finally got an accepted offer on the perfect home.  A bank owned, brand new never lived in 4 bedroom home. 
This young couple has waited patiently - they have driven streets, they watch their email and they knew exactly what they could afford regardless of what they qualified for (lender would loan more than they wanted to spend).
We saw the home come … (12 comments)

Buyers today are in the drivers seat more than ever, we all know this and buyers are educated about it.  However, when do you stop and say - ok.  Every time a buyer or seller puts out a new offer or a counter offer they take the chance of the other walking away.  We all have our bottom line and some of us do not want to move off that number. 
But... Buyers and sellers are you risking the home of your dreams or the sale when you counter offer and are only a thousand or two apart?  Is getting that … (61 comments)

Many buyers today are seeking Central Oregon bank owned properties. Buyers believe bank owned properties offer a home at a price lower than other homes on the market.  This is not always the case.

central oregon homes for sale: Buyers Looking for VALUES Deserve Great Representation - 11/15/08 10:30 AM
It seems that the home buyer of today in the Central Oregon Real Estate market wants to see a good value in what they buy and rightfully so.

The buyer has more choices today then they have had in over 20 years.  Finding a home is not the problem the problem is choosing the right home.  That is where an agent that is … (11 comments)

central oregon homes for sale: Sunriver Oregon Homes - Priced To SELL!!! - 11/05/08 04:09 PM
Sunriver has always been one of the higher priced areas of Central Oregon Real Estate.  With the slower market - Sunriver has once again become affordable to buyers.

It is not uncommon for a home in Sunriver to be priced at over $300 a square … (7 comments)
