COMMUNITY CLIP: Why I Love Bend, Oregon – Jason Bradley

Embrace outdoor adventures in Bend, Oregon

What makes Central Oregon so awesome? We asked the local experts: our team. ⁠

In this Community Clip video series, here’s why Jason Bradley, a broker at Fred Real Estate Group, loves Bend, Oregon. In a nutshell, it’s being able to live and work in a place with nature around you all the time:



The desirability of the Bend and Central Oregon lifestyle and the ability to work from anywhere is facilitating a surge of pandemic migration to the area, booming home prices, low inventory, and Zoom Towns. With abundant recreational opportunities, and each Central Oregon city offering its own unique flavor of charm and appeal, no matter where you live in the area, you’re just minutes away from the trails, slopes, and golf courses, making the region’s desirability an attractive place to live. The current fast-paced real estate market attests to the desirability of Central Oregon as home sales continue to climb, as do median home prices, with the tradeoffs of housing affordability not seeming to decrease the popularity of ‘living where you vacation’.⁠
