I remember you! I check your blog every once in a while! Your little boy is getting so big!So you guys are really moving to Bend in May then? Whoo hoo! Has your house in AZ sold yet?
Oh man, I am so bad about keeping up with my blog! I need to get on that, huh? lol
Yeah, we are really moving to Bend! We decided to not sell our house in AZ, but to rent it out for a while. In fact, one of the Phoenix Nesties wants to rent it! Woo hoo!!! The market here is pretty bad so we're better off just holding onto it a riding out the storm over the next couple of years.
We plan on renting in Bend for a while. That way we can get to know the area, possibly find a lot and then build our own home. We're hoping to stay on the west side, maybe southwest area? What part of town are you guys in?We'll be in Bend the week of March 10th to start looking at rentals. Can't wait! Will it be a little warmer there next month? I'm wondering if I need to go buy some warmer clothes--all of my winter clothes are for 50 degree days.
Yeah.. Awbrey Butte = $$$ It's rediculous.
A couple of areas you might like are Northwest Crossing (http://www.northwestcrossing.com/) and the Shevlin Reserve/ Meadows area (I don't remember the name of the subdivision, but I could tell you how to get there! Not like that would help right now...). There are actually a few reasonable homes in the Shevlin area, but most homes in NW Crossing are a little spendy. However, there are usually quite a few homes up for rent in that area. Do you guys want the typical subdivision with smaller lots or a little more room?
I've never heard of Yelas homes before... I'll do a little investigating for ya.
Thing is that there is something like 10,000 custom home builders in CO. Depending on where their homes are I'd be inclined to think that they are hurting financially and they're doing whatever they need to do to move them. I did see some homes on the south end of town near the highway that were listed for $250k (I think) and that seemed really low to me.
Welcome to Bend! I really like the houses in Northwest Crossing. Just don't live anywhere near the park. Teenagers like to hang out there late at night.
Tiff- I thought maybe you lived in DRW. Where do you want to build next?
Darn rotten teenagers causin' trouble!
Laidbackgl: If I was to build again.... I think we'd end up in DRW. I want a little more room than we have now (1/4 acre) so I wouldn't do good in town with anything less than that. I really like where we are now, but I'm not about to pay $389K for 1/3 acre with nothing on it!
Branola: I still haven't heard anything good/ bad about Yelas. I looked them up on CCB and that was fine, but they are not a part of the local builders association. Not necessary (heck, I work for a paving company and we're not even part of it), but I'd say most home builders are members. The houses are cute though! I saw a few craigslist ads.
