I write about Central Oregon and Bend Oregon Real Estate. I know Bend, having lived in the city over 30 years. My blog goals are to pass on information pertinent to Bend Oregon Real Estate and the real estate profession in general.
Ever since coming out from the housing recession, the value of Bend single family homes on less than an acre has increased. From an average sales price of $230,000 in spring of 2011, Bend home values have gone up to exceed $547,000 June 2020.  During the same time, the months of inventory have d...
The June 2020 MLS figures have been published and it is clear that a lack of inventory is greatly impacting Bend home sales. Ever since coming out of the great recession, we have been in a seller's market with less than six months supply of homes.  However, despite the Covid-19 pandemic (or perha...
 We have hiked to Green Lakes many times over the years. The 4.5 miles to the lake posted on the forest service sign by the trail head we believe is to the first lake the trail reaches and not to the far lake which usually takes another 1/2 hour to 45 minutes of hiking.  We have gone to the far l...
We first heard about Iron Mountain 5 years ago when a friend told us about this amazing hike in the Central Cascades off Hwy 20 near Tombstone Summit. When we took the hike, it was past the peak time for the annual wildflowers, but this year the flowers were blooming and the views were stunning.I...
Most Central Oregonians know what a wonderful place to camp, fish, and hike Newberry National Volcanic Monument is. Paulina Falls and the Obsidian Trail are easy, short hikes to beautiful views and interesting geological formations and are well used by visitors to the monument.  However, probably...
Known as one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon, the Painted Hills is series of hills with outstanding colors. Located roughly 86 miles northeast of Bend close to Mitchell, Oregon, the hills get their colors from the geology of the area over 35 million years. The combination of river flood plain, tropica...
The May 2020 real estate sales figures have been published and the second full month of the Covid-19 pandemic and its subsequent impact on the Bend economy is over. Contrary to the thought process of many, Bend single family real estate sales were extremely strong in May. The biggest limitation t...
Sparks Lake is one of our favorite Central Oregon places to take visitors to showcase why we love where we live.  Located off the Cascade Lakes Highway, the views of Broken Top and South Sister from the Ray Atkeson Memorial Trail are spectacular and the lake is usually filled with non-motorized b...
In all the years we have lived in Central Oregon, we have never hiked to Alder Springs. In fact, we didn't even know it existed until recently.  Flowing into lower Whychus Creek which starts at Broken Top and merges into the Deschutes River, Alder Springs is an oasis in the midst of the High Dese...
On May 16, 2020 we returned to Newberry Crater to enjoy the newly reopened monument. We traveled as far around East Lake as we could, stopping at the boat ramp parking near the lodge as the road was blocked past that. We walked past the barrier through the empty East Lake campground until we came...
