Bend Housing Market: January 2017

The Month of January is typically a slow real estate month in Bend, Oregon. This January 2017 was particularly slow due to the large amount of snow and cold temperatures, making it hard for workers to prep homes, sidewalks to be cleared, and buyers to make it into homes to see them. This made for a relatively inactive month in the Bend Housing Market. Let’s take a look how this effected the Bend Housing Market:
