Although we continue to see an uptick of new listings, the supply still isn’t coming close to meeting the demand for a home in Bend, and the median home price is up a massive 40% year-over-year.

There were 269 homes listed in May, a 2% increase from April, and a 4% increase from May 2020. However, the number of new listings continues to be low compared to pre-pandemic years. For example, there were 408 homes listed in May 2019.

After an all-time high of $652,000 in April, the median home price in Bend went down 4% last month to $628,250. That’s well above last May’s median home price of $449,452, and a pure demonstration of how supply and demand affect home values.
