The Log Home in Central Oregon's Declining Market

Real Estate Agent with West + Main

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 little words scare you away from buying a home of your dreams.  Now, not every agent is the agent you should choose to represent you in a short sale transaction.  You should always choose an agent that has additional education in short sales and knows the area.

Take a look at these beauties - start dreaming and call me so I can help make them yours.

Thesa, what great homes and properties.  You live in a very beautiful part of our state and if it weren't for the snow we would have moved there instead of Grants Pass in 2008.

I love log homes they are so warm and cozy feeling especially with a fireplace, that is a must have in my book.

Central Oregon is a beautiful place but like Gary said it is sooooooo cold during the winter.  We visit every year.

Hi Gary and Clason  - we have a saying over here - hope you have a sense of humor - Central Oregon aint for sissys -

I would rather have our cold than your wet - it is dry on this side of the mountain - it certainly feels different in each of our locations
