Tetherow Market Update
Ladd Group Market Update:
Q4 – 2018 Review
It’s a crisp and clear New Year’s Day and as I sit in the real estate office at Tetherow and watch visitors grab the shuttle to the mountain, I am reminded of how special this place is. Last year was a record setting year at Tetherow and I expect more of the same in the coming year.
Although the year ended with some stock market jitters, the real estate market at Tetherow is strong and robust and we are down to the final 10% of developer homesites remaining! However, there are still great opportunities for you to secure the homesite of your dreams. From the heart of the Heath neighborhood to the extension of the North Forty Lots on Hosmer Lake Dr in the Crescent Neighborhood, there is something for everyone.
In addition to lots, there has never been a better time to get into an already built home. There are currently a few options for new construction built by some the top builders in Bend as well as a growing number of resales coming on the market as some of the first owners in Tetherow are making changes. This presents a great opportunity for those who are ready and want to move into a completed home.
On the investment front, the Trailhead vacation homes will be wrapping up construction in the coming year, and we are excited to see that neighborhood take shape. Sitting at the base of the best trails in Bend, there is no better spot to launch your adventure and come back to the club for an evening bite, drink and swim. On the other side of the clubhouse is the latest offering in the Cairn neighborhood, the 2 bedroom Cairn Cottages! These smaller homes will be just over 1000 square feet and will be a great opportunity for rental income and offer a cozy sized place to call home when you’re here!

Below are Statistics for all of Central Oregon, Re-capping 4th Quarter, 2018. We hope you find this useful!
Brian is the consummate professional and has a tremendous breadth of real estate knowledge. His background as a builder himself proved invaluable in multiple circumstances. When viewing a house Brian can instantly describe materials, construction methods and overall quality. His industry background allows him to articulate the pros and cons for a given neighborhood, house type and competitive environment. We had a protracted negotiation and Brian’s tenacity is what finally made the transactio…
My wife and I could not have been more pleased with the work that Brian and the Ladd Group performed with the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new one! Not only was the listing of our home really well done, but the execution was incredibly impressive. The house sold in one week for over asking! Our needs were somewhat complex as well, with the sale/purchase simultaneous, and Brian’s teammate Lily Leedom worked daily with us to find our new home. Lily was diligent in learning our prefer…
We had a great experience working with Bryan Hilts an associate of Brian Ladd. Bryan is very knowledgeable and patient. Very professional. We looked at a broad range of homes in several different neighborhoods to get a feel for Bend and the activities associated with each neighborhood. I would recommend Bryan and anticipate continuing to do business with him.
From our initial appointment, through the marketing & sales strategy discussions, to our eventual close, Brian and his entire team at Ladd Group where professional, thoughtful, and above all else, available to help us through a very challenging sales cycle. It’s important to understand that our home was in a middle-tier market price range that made Brian’s job of finding us a qualified buyer very difficult. Brian helped us stay calm and reasonable in our thinking and actions as we struggled t…
My husband and I decided we loved Oregon and wanted to start house hunting. Since we currently live out of country Alice sent us weekly updates of houses on the market that matched our criteria. When we came into town she rearranged her schedule to accommodate us. We were impressed by the effort she put into giving us all the information we asked for and when she didn’t know, she always found the answer. Looking for a home is time consuming so the weekly updates were very helpful in monitoring t…
I have completed numerous transactions with Brian over the last few years. He is a true professional that can be counted on for his honesty and integrity. His wealth of experience and dedication to his profession is unmatched. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking help with their real estate needs. -Anonymous
Bryan Hilts, a part of the Ladd Group of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty, was an outstanding help to us in purchasing our home in Bend. We worked together for the better part of a year while we were still living in the Hillsboro area. He helped us explore most of the areas in and around Bend, refine our wants, needs, likes, dislikes, pluses and minuses of different areas we were interested in. He has a vast knowledge of Central Oregon which was a great help to us. Bryan is a very respons…
Denise Wyatt was amazing throughout the process of both selling our current home and purchasing our new home. She helped sell our home at the top of market value in about two weeks, and helped us negotiate a number of changes and upgrades in our new construction home purchase. Other members of the Ladd group also were very helpful and responsive. We have bought and sold many homes over the last 25 years and Denise and the Ladd group team have been the best we’ve worked with.
Brian was the best agent to work with. He was always willing to work around my difficult and last minute schedule. He understands his clients and works to get them what they want while looking out for their best interests. His background in construction, knowledge of the industry really helped as well. I HIGHLY recommend him. -Anonymous
As a buyer trying to find a house in Bend while still living in South Carolina, I really wanted to pick the right agent. Brian seemed like my kind of guy, and Sotheby’s doesn’t use just anybody, so I felt it was worth a try. He was the perfect choice. In only a few emails, he was able to understand precisely what we were looking for. On a trip to Bend, He showed me houses that all fit with what I was looking for. In just one day, he gave me an overview of most of the west side of town and the m…
