The BrundageSmith team attended the Bend Chamber Real Estate Forecast Breakfast that took place on April 20, 2016 this year. The overall outlook seemed to be one of optimism. The big question was how our current growth compares to that of 2005 – 2007 and whether or not we’re heading towards another bust. When comparing the growth of the Bend real estate market from 2005 – 2007 to the growth from 2013 – 2015, the difference this time seems to be in the overall health and strength of the Bend economy and discipline in lending. Home prices are expected to rise over the next 12-18 months at least.
