Today we had the first broker tour of the year— sleet, snow and rain notwithstanding. It was a small tour — only seven homes — and it provided a pretty good cross-section of Sisters options. The inventory of Residential listings in Sisters is the lowest it’s been in the past three years. (As of Jan. 23, there were 116 Active Residential listings, which includes Single Family Residential and Residential with Acreage listings but not multifamily or lot listings.)
Of the seven new listings we toured, four were under $200,000 (three Fuqua homes in the Pines and a small cabin in Tollgate), one was a newer three-bedroom home in mid-town Sisters priced at $299,000; one was a higher-end family home in Pine Meadow Village ($499,000); and one was a horse property on 18 acres on Holmes Road (also $499,000).  Of the seven, two are short sales; none are bank-owned.
Given the dreary, damp weather, the dozen or so of us who braved the elements were grateful for the freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies that were waiting for us at the final home. An unexpected treat is always appreciated!
