Foreclosure filings in July increased nearly 7 percent from June nation wide.  That's up 32 percent from the same time last year.  Wednesday the Federal Reserve issued a statement saying that the recession is ending.  It keeps looking like the bottom of the Bend Oregon real estate market. Bend Oregon Bank Foreclosures For Sale

Sales are picking up but there will be plenty of time to find a great home in Bend.  The pipeline of bank foreclosures is full and we should have a good supply for the next year or so.  I don't look for prices to pick up until next year, probably in the spring. 

Well priced homes are selling relatively fast.  I just sold a home in Northwest Crossing that was on the market for 23 days when my client bought it.  It was not a bank foreclosure but was well priced by an owner who understood the market and priced his property to sell.
