If you're looking to buy a property in Bend, I have one starting piece of advice "don't be in a rush!". There are still plenty of great properties that come up for sale in Bend but when they do come available they move quickly. The best thing a potential buyer can do is be "ready" and "waiting". It also helps to have an agent who's watching and listening everyday.
If you're looking to buy, give me a call and let's come up with a plan. I can't promise that we'll find your perfect house tomorrow but we can be ready to pounce when it appears.
