Home Buying In Central Oregon

With a new ‘normal’ for selling homes digitally (in-person open houses and showings are out, and inspections and appraisals may take longer to schedule), sellers facing weeks or months of uncertainty might start cutting prices. The Federal Reserve’s decision to lower interest rates creates an unprecedented opportunity for buyers to lock in mortgages at phenomenally low rates now. Low rates and seller uncertainty will favor buyers.
