COBA 2011 Tour of Homes

The Central Oregon Builders Association is having their 23rd annual Tour of Homes.  The Tour of Homes is a showcase for local builders throughout Central Oregon.  This year there are 2 houses in Sisters, 1 in Redmond, 4 in Caldera Springs (Sunriver), 3 homes in Brasada Ranch (Powell Butte) and the remaining 29 homes on the tour are in Bend.  One thing that struck me about this year’s tour is that there are 11 homes priced under $300,000.  Last year there were 17 (out of 37).  Even if you aren’t in the market for a new home, attending the tour is a great way to get ideas for your home.  You can find everything from the latest trends in color and design to efficient appliances and cool fixtures.


If you are interested in checking out some or all of the homes on the tour this year there is only one more weekend to do so.  This weekend, July 22-24, is your last opportunity.  The hours of the tour are Friday 12 – 6 pm, Saturday 10 am – 6 pm and Sunday 10 am – 6 pm.  If you find a house on the tour that you just can’t live without please call your realtor, before you write an offer.  If you don’t find a home on the tour that you like, don’t worry.  We can help you find other new homes in Bend that are for sale.
