Why Bend is the Perfect Place to Buy Your First Home

A recent survey by PulteGroup, Inc. verified this fact when they surveyed 1,000 consumers across the United
States and found that 54 percent of consumers were from the Millennials generation and 74 percent of those
consumers that were surveyed said that now is a “good” or “excellent” time to buy a home.
The Millennials strive for independence and what better way to feel independent than to buy a home to
call your own. Something you worked hard for and achieved all by yourself. And what better place to
buy a home than in Bend Oregon!

Bend is a very diverse city. This city has everything from skiing to dog sledding in the winter, and paddle
boarding to rock climbing in the summer, but that’s not all bend has to offer; Bend is growing in so
many different ways. Our OSU‐Cascades campus at COCC is becoming a four year university which will

Facebook data center. Bend is not only the number one dog city and the number one beer city in
