Bend Real Estate Statistics Q2 2018

Welcome to our Bend Real Estate Market Update for the Second Quarter of 2018. These statistics are for stick built homes on 1.0 acre or less in Bend zip codes 97701, 97702 and 97703 and do not include manufactured homes, condos, or townhomes. This report uses market data based on transactions that closed from January 1 through June 30, 2018. All statistics come directly from the Central Oregon MLS. The first portion of this report looks at the Bend real estate market in its entirety. Latter sections focus on more specific segments of the market.


Bend Market-wide Activity

At the end of June 2018, there were 604 single-family homes for sale, 328 pending sales, and 1194 homes had sold through the second quarter of 2018. Inventory is up 5.29% from this time last year. We currently have about 2 months of inventory, which is very low and means we’re still experiencing a seller’s market. (Months of inventory is the time it would take to sell all current listings at the current sales pace if no new listings became available.)
