Including a few lots that have an owner carry for 3 years.Crosswater is located across the street and one of the wonderful incentives is a discounted Crosswater Golf Membership.One particular lot is currently on resale, (Lot 106 on Dancing Rock Loop) is curently listed lower than the phase I pricing it was purchased for.

With the Baby Boomers looking to buy second homes at an amazing rate (inspite of the real estate slowdown) fractional share ownershipis gaining in popularity.  Fractional ownership is going strong in many resort towns, such as Sunriver and Caldera Springs.  What is fractional share ownership, you ask?  It is not a timeshare!  You actually are a deeded owner of the property.  You own an undivided share of the entire property, right down to the silverware and bath towels.  The most common fractional program nationwide calls for eight owners per home with a usage of five weeks.  In Sunriver, we most often see four owners or 25% shares with 13 weeks of usage.Think about this - the average amount of time that an owner uses their vacation home is approximately six weeks per year.  The average...

I started my search on Central Oregon real estate with La Pine Oregon REALTOR Thesa Chambers.  Now I'll be honest, I've never been to Central Oregon but after a little digging I think I'd like to visit, perhaps quickly.  ONE WORD - GOLF Central Oregon's Sunriver area is famous for the Sunriver Resort ... and golf is on the agenda at Sunriver Resort.  I took one look at these photos and immediately thought "what a place to live, to play, to work!"  I have always wanted to live in an area of the country where I could golf with mountains and lakes ... I digress.Other great communities in Central Oregon: Caldera SpringsLa Pine  "La Pine Oregon is well described as "The Outdoors at Your Front Door."

Many of us have waited a long time for the information on the "resort" section of Caldera Springs. Today we received the reservation agreements which show a lot more information than I expected. The model is not really ready for showing - but the team is out there regardless to answer your questions. Let them know you are working with me and you will get star treatment.The zoning requirement is that we must have 150 keys. There will be 45 or so cabins each cabin will have 3 or 4 keys per cabin, and one owner. It is a very interesting concept. Looking closely at this floor plan each bedroom has it's own access to the outdoors and each of them can be self maintained as a "hotel" style room.Call, or email me for more information and your reservation packet _________________________________...

I often receive phone calls from out of town buyers asking which I think is a better - buying in Sunriver or outside of Sunriver. This is one of those questions we tend to answer with the same 2 words, it Depends.If you are looking for a home that a large family can come to Central Oregon and enjoy the wonderful lifestyle we all take for granted then you may find that outside the resort will give you more home for your money. Most off the locals do not actually live in the resort. In Sunriver you will find a few homes 6 as of this writing under $400,000. While outside the resort $400,000 will buy you a much larger and often times nicer home.If you want the higher appreciation and are looking for the quicker investment you may find the resort to be much more appealing. Although you will ...

Ever wonder where the family traditions have gone in the world today?  I am fortunate enough to work in an area that families seem to gravitate to and can be seen enjoying themselves often.  Central Oregon is one of the most beautiful regions in the country.  We have so much to do and getting back to nature simply means for most of us walking out our front door. Just over a year ago the first phase of Caldera Springs lot sales was underway - what a difference a year makes.  We all knew the excitement for this resort would bring buyers from all around the country and it did, what we were not expecting was the level of integrity, thoughtfulness, and concern for the area the resort would be developed under. Caldera Springs is located across South Century Drive from Crosswater and behind th...
