  3. While Bend may seem expensive compared to surrounding rural communities, it is actually quite affordable when compared to other larger cities, including nearby Portland. At the start of 2018, the median sale prices in Bend averaged $428,311, with particularly lower median prices in the eastern part of Bend, with a median sale price of $550,286 in Northeast Bend and $425,762 in Southeast Bend. However, the area is growing in popularity and has seen a continuous increase in prices over the last several years, creating a massive influx of new construction properties and newly established communities. This makes an investment in Bend real estate even more valuable as prices continue to rise.
