Redmond Home Sales Dropped In 2023 Redmond has been among the best locations in Central Oregon for middle class homeowners to reside.  Situated only 20 minutes north of Bend on Hwy 97, Redmond has been a more affordable option for many looking to purchase in Central Oregon and its close proximity to Bend has made Redmond a town from which many who work in Bend can fairly easily commute.  Redmond experienced the same real estate market trends Bend did during the Covid pandemic with limited inventory and great demand pushing prices up. Low interest rates enabled many to purchase Redmond homes at lower prices than seen in Bend. However, when interest rates doubled in 2022, this greatly impacted the buying power of would-be Redmond homebuyers and in 2023, median home prices dropped in Redm...

Redmond Real Estate Sales - A Market In Transition It has been awhile since we last looked at the data for Redmond Oregon home sales. Redmond's housing has consistently been more affordable than that available in Bend with the majority of homes in the city what most would considered middle income suburban. The Covid-19 housing boom impacted Redmond as it did most of the country, and now rising interest rates, lack of inventory, and relatively high prices are creating a housing market in transition. We looked at Redmond home sale for the first half of 2023.  When the first six months of 2023 are compared with the first six months of 2022, the following changes can be noted for Redmond single family home sales on less than an acre: Average sales price down 10.7% to $508.212* Median sales...

Redmond Oregon's First Three Quarters 2021 Reflect Strong Home SalesWe haven't looked exclusively at Redmond Oregon single family home sales for six months.  We know that home sales have been strong throughout Central Oregon with prices up and inventory levels down. But as a community without a lot of single family luxury homes, Redmond attracts a great number of people for whom Bend has become unaffordable.  Although a smaller community to Bend, Redmond has also had prodigious growth over the past decade.  The Covid lockdowns and work from home orders have also impacted Redmond with more people moving there than available inventory creating bidding wars and pushing home prices up. When we compare the first 3 quarters of 2021 with 2020 for Redmond single family home sales on less than a...

Redmond Oregon Home Prices Continue to Rise Redmond has historically been a more affordable option for people moving to Central Oregon. Home and land prices in this vibrant town have remained lower than those in Bend, and with the commute between the two communities less than 20 minutes, Redmond has often been a first choice for many relocating to our area. However, the growth in Central Oregon has pushed single family residential home prices in Redmond higher since coming out of the recession in 2012. In fact, over the past five years, home prices in Redmond have doubled with the average sold price now over $300,000.

Although we often focus on Bend Oregon real estate trends, Redmond has also seen tremendous growth over the past 5 years. And while still more affordable than Bend, Redmond's housing prices are also a reflection of the available inventory. In 2015, Redmond had 4 months of supply of single family homes, all price points, and on less than an acre of land. In 2016, this figure had lowered to 2.9 months and in 2017, we are at 2.3 months of supply.  A healthy and balanced market is considered 6 months of supply. Directly impacted by the months of inventory is the average sales price. Since 2015, the price of a single family home in Redmond on less than an acre of land has gone from $223,152 to $285,830 - more than 10% increase each year. The question remains - how high can prices go in Redmo...

However, the nearby communities to Bend are also important to our clients and we often represent both buyers and sellers in Redmond, Oregon which has also grown considerably over the past 10 years.

Fall in Central Oregon is full of beautiful fall colors and crisp fresh air.  The weather is changing and there's fresh snow has now fallen on the Cascade Mountains.  Sunset are beautiful over the mountains with their fresh snow.  Pumpkins are everywhere , along with pumpkin everything.  Pumpkin spice donuts, lattes, pumpkin caramels.   Real Estate has slowed down some, but still going at a steady pace.  Hope everyone is enjoying the bounties of Fall in their part of the world.
