Yesterday, I should’ve been making the rounds viewing new listings on our Sisters’ Broker Tour. Every two weeks, 20 to 30 area agents gather at the community room at Ray’s Food Place at 8:30 in the morning and caravan to a handful of properties to get our first peek at what’s new on the market (w...

Recently, my RE/MAX office met with Ellen Silfven & Davina Luz of Bank of the Cascades (BOTC). The duo was there to discuss BOTC’s home loan program. The timing of the meeting was no coincidence: Just a few weeks ago, new president/CEO Terry Zink made a very public $1 billion commitment to makin...

In November, there were still no major changes in the Sisters real estate market -- just slow, steady progress in a few key areas. First, the number of Active listings continued to decrease (from 174 in October to 161 in November). That's also an improvement over November 2009, when there were176...

Last month, the Sisters real estate market saw very little change -- from the previous month or the previous October. Which is a good thing, in many ways. Some areas of the country saw a downturn in October, but for the second month in a row, Sisters matched June's sales peak of 16 Closed sales. ...

There wasn't a lot of change in the Sisters real estate market from March to April -- or from April '09 to April '10, for that matter -- when it comes to the number of listings. In April ‘09, there were 180 Active listings (100 Single Family Residences and 80 Residential with Acreage); in April '...

In February, the real estate sales activity slowed a bit in Sisters -- from 19 pending and closed sales in January to 10 pending and closed sales. No surprise there; there's typically a winter lull in Central Oregon. Meanwhile, the median sales price for Active Single Family Residence listings fe...

The national economic crisis combined with the dramatic downturn in our local real estate market has proven to be an extremely challenging combination for a lot of us. Property values are down, the lending industry is in upheaval and the continued economic slowdown has wreaked havoc with our savi...

Unlike much of Central Oregon, traditional sales continue to dominate the Sisters real estate market.

At the end of 2009, Sisters had begun to make some decent headway in reducing its inventory (from 176 Active listings in November to 147 in December and a 2009 high of 219 in July). That helped bring the overall supply down from 18 months to 14 months for Single Family Residences and from 34 mont...

Mother Nature shone bright on the annual Sisters Christmas Parade on Saturday. Under clear blue skies and relatively balmy temperatures (40-ish), the holiday-inspired procession of floats, pets, people and contraptions sauntered down Hood Avenue to the appreciative applause of a very large, very ...

How fitting that just in time for my 100th blog post, Sisters was named one of the Top 100 Adventure Towns in National Geographic Adventure magazine. The October issue provides a handy state-by-state guide of the country's "top outdoor hubs," which touts the Sisters area for its hiking, rafting,...
