Supper Club: Update on Real Estate in Bend, Oregon

The median home price for Bend jumped $35,000 in one month from May to June, so we sat down with three local realtors, Deb Mortimore-Lane of Sunriver Realty, Christin Hunter of Windermere Real Estate, and Tiffany Gidely of Coldwell Banker, for this week’s Supper Club to see what it’s like on the front lines of the market for buyers and sellers.

A special thanks to our Supper Club sponsor, Selco Community Credit Union, for giving us the time and resources to talk about the issues that impact our region with a new edition of Supper Club every Tuesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
