Bend Oregon Real Estate
The real estate market in Bend, Oregon has been booming since the mid 90's. You'll find newer homes for sale in all of Bend, and some older areas around the downtown and westside areas. There are also a variety of condos and townhomes available. Whether you're looking to invest in a duplex, looking for your first home, or wanting to buy a luxury property, there is something in the area for you.
Bend is located on the east side of the Cascade Mountain Range in Central Oregon. The city offers breath taking mountain views and towering Ponderosa pine trees. The Deschutes river flows through town, and offers many parks and trails to enjoy along the water way, as well as some prime riverfront real estate. East of town offers high desert with beautiful rock formations, old growth juniper trees, and miles of OHV (off highway vehicle) trails. While the west side of town offers towering Ponderosa Pine trees, hiking, biking, and river access. Bend is also home to Mt Bachelor. The popular ski resort is only a short drive from the available Bend real estate.
Bend is unique, in that we're on the break of the Cascade Mountains and the high desert of Central Oregon. So we have lush forest on the west side of town and sage brush and desert on the east side. Prices on homes for sale on the westside are higher than similar residences on the east side of town. Properties near the downtown area and west of the Deschutes river are in demand, due to their proximity to downtown, outdoor recreation, the river, brew pubs, dining, entertainment and more. Neighborhoods around the city vary in size and amenities. Bend real estate offers everything from upper-end, gated golf communities, to small acreage, large acreage, condos, townhomes, planned unit developments and smaller affordable communities. If you're in the real estate market and want to find the home and neighborhood that fit you best, contact Sedonia Darling online or call (541) 749-0509.

City History, Information, And Useful Links
Farewell Bend was the original name early pioneers gave the area. Later the "Farewell" was dropped and the city just became Bend. The community started as a logging town at the turn of the century. Tourism in Central Oregon started as Sunriver and Mt Bachelor began to gain popularity in the mid 80's. This was perfect timing, as the Mill had just shut down and Bend was what some say "a ghost town" after the shutdown. The Sunriver, Mt. Bachelor, and other outdoor tourism sparked the economy and real estate market in Bend, and since then the small little town has grown into a small city, yet hasn't lost it's small, outdoorsy feel. Clients that relocate our neighborhoods always mention it's small town feel with city amenities, dining, entertainment, and shopping opportunities
Bend is known for its abundance of sunny days (especially compared to Western Oregon). A typical year brings almost 300 sunny days. Temperatures fluctuate, but summer consists of warm days, little humidity, and cool nights. Winter brings cooler temperatures, but not a lot of moisture. We rarely see more than 6 inches of snow on the ground in Bend (but it can happen). Some years we rarely see a snowflake, while other years we get consistent snow. It usually doesn't last long though, as temperatures usually rise within a week or two and melt the snow. The average precipitation in Bend is about 12 inches a year, with an average of roughly 33 inches of total snowfall a year.
