"Six Retirement Hot Spots For Less", and Bend, Oregon Real Estate is #1

I thought I'd share this article that was recently published on AOL by BusinessWeek.  The article talks about how shrinking home prices in desirable areas offer a great opportunitiy to retirees.  Bend tops the the nation for "smart places to retire". Read the full Bend retirement article.

Why is Bend on top of the list? 

Why not!  Bend is surrounded by beauty, like the Cascade mountains, Deschutes River, Smith Rock State Park, and much more.  I recently put a small slide show together of Bend that you can view at Bend Oregon slide show.  Bend is also known for it's climate.  Typically we get about 300 sunny days a year. 

The current Bend Real Estate market offers retirees an opportunity to purchase an affordable retirement home. All buyers have a lot to choose from in today's market.  There are 2053 residential properties in Bend on the market as of this moment.  This gives retirees and other buyers the opportunity for negotiations.  This along with interest rates still holding low, makes it a great time for retirees to make their move to Bend. 

Bend Outdoor Recreation

Another reason for retirees to move to Bend is the outdoor recreation offered.  Golf is a big retiree sport, and Bend has great golf courses everywhere.  Whether you want an affordable public course, or an exclusive member course, there are many choices.  In addition to the golf, other Bend outdoor activities for retirees include Skiing at Mt. Bachelor, Fly Fishing, Hiking, and much more.
