Prineville Is On The Rebound


In 2014 we saw the first signs of a turnaround in property values. 2015 has continued to improve in certain areas. Although Bend and Redmond are moving ahead at a brisk pace, Prineville's activity has lagged behind much as it did during the 2000 boom when things suddenly exploded. Does this mean we can expect big changes in the near future? The factors that drove our market then have changed a bit, so in my opinion we should see a more gradual improvement. The mid range residential have enjoyed the most success while lots and small acreages have remained stagnate. Large properties and farms/ranches seem to be doing well at this time. Prices are all over the board so it is imperative to do your homework.

Is This The Right Time To Buy ?

The signs are encouraging to me. Although there are still foreclosure properties entering the market we are starting to see multiple offers and in some cases the prices are actually bidded up. Some properties are on the market only days and not the months or even years we saw in the past.

Some sellers made the decision not to follow everyone else over the cliff and held fast to the price they wanted for their property, and are getting it. 

A good percentage of my business is investment buyers who have waited for the dust to settle, but are now becoming more active. Some are realizing profits right now while others are preparing for a more definite turn around they feel is just around the corner. You can make things happen or you can watch them happen 

Proceed With Caution

Even with prices at a fraction of what they where, a thorough understanding of the local market is necessary to make sound decisions.
