Months of Inventory

April 2017 wrapped up with an average of 2.9 Months of Inventory for Bend Homes. That’s in well 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 2.9 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 April 2017 favored the home seller.
