Months of Inventory

May 2017 wrapped up with an average of 3.8 Months of Inventory for Bend Homes. That’s just shy of the 4 month mark which indicates a market where both buyers and sellers are without an advantage. And it’s an increase from the March 2017 inventory numbers we experienced. The 3.8 number indicates a deficit in available Bend home inventory, a trend we’ve seen far more often than not over the past years. This indicates the Bend Housing Market in May 2017 favored the home seller, but it was close to being balanced between the home seller and home buyer.

Median Sale Price

The Median Sale Price for homes in Bend Oregon during the month of May 2017 is $379,000.
