Multiple Offers Seen on Some Bend Real Estate Listings

Even though home prices are up, Bend Premier Real Estate Brokers are experiencing multiple offers for their clients on certain well priced homes. These properties are not necessarily the least expensive, but they are priced for the current market and have the amenities for which multiple Bend home buyers are looking. 

High Mortgage Rates Remain an Obstacle for Bend Real Estate Sales

With mortgage rates remaining just under 7%, sellers with lower mortgage interest rates that would normally be listing are holding onto their existing home, waiting for rates to drop before jumping into the market. This puts more demand on the remaining inventory which is keeping home prices up. However, the high mortgage rates are limiting the options of would-be home buyers; fully 24% of Bend home sales in March 2024 were cash and this is not anticipated to change as we enter the peak season for Bend Oregon Real Estate sales from mid spring through mid fall.
