Bend, Oregon featured in USA Today

The Bend, Oregon real estate market was just featured (in a positive light) in USA Today. The article stated “it’s a great time to buy a home in Bend, Oregon.” I think this type of nationally published article is very important for the Bend real estate market for several reasons.
