Last week, we hosted an open house in the Bend, Oregon neighborhood of Shevlin Pines, which has developed building sites and new homes near Shevlin Park on Bend's west side. Our 100 or so visitors loved the new neighborhood, commenting often on the larger lots and variety of builders that are building homes. This range of influences in home design keeps the streetscapes away from that "cookie cutter" feeling of many new areas.
The festive, positive atmosphere of this open house reminded us of events we used to hold during the glory days of Bend, Oregon real estate! Many visiting builders expressed interest in buying lots in the next phase of Shevlin Pines, which will be released in early spring 2011. The number of lots to be released in that phase are being determined over the next couple of weeks.
The best news of all? The home in which we were holding the open house SOLD during the open house! Luckily, our agent Shelley Griffin had a SOLD sign in her car to put up!
