Statistics for the month of September were just made available and it looks like prices have stayed strong, but are definitely leveling off. There was a slight up tick in Bend to a median price point of $725,000. As I mentioned in a previous email, prices will most likely continue shifting up and down over the next few months as we resettle and adjust to interest rates. With Winter on the way, this will be the last push for many sellers. Luckily the weather has been beautiful in town and houses are still showing very well. Another thing that I have noticed in recent weeks is the influx of luxury listing inventory. Looking at September numbers, the total number of active listings in the west Bend region was 183 properties at prices up to $1 million. At the same time, there were 143 properties for sale between $1-2 million! Now that's an expensive region and lesser priced homes tend to sell at a faster pace, but I do see a trend emerging. Sellers are rolling out of higher price points and owners of "average" priced homes are beginning to covet their homes a bit more as the market shifts. Stay tuned to learn how the next few weeks progress! - Greg
