Nice Spring weather is here, and along with that, the real estate market in Central Oregon will really start to heat up!
If you are planning to buy a home, the timing couldn't be better. Mortgage interest rates are still low, and they may or may not go up when the Fed adjusts rates again soon. So take advantage NOW of the low rates and nice selection of homes coming on the market in every price range.
Many buyers don't know that there is usually no cost for buyers to use a professional real estate broker (agent). Most properties on the Internet are listed with Realtors who have fee agreements with sellers. When an agent - even an agent exclusively representing the buyer - sells a house, the seller pays that agent at closing! So you can benefit from the knowledge and experience of a Realtor without any additional cost :)
Some properties buyers find on Zillow and other sites are For Sale By Owner. Remember that your Realtor can represent your best interests in these transactions too. An experienced Realtor knows the problems that can pop up at any point along the path of a transaction, and knows how to handle them in your best interest.
Please let me know what I can be doing for you!

Duke Warner Realty was established in 1967 by Duke and Kitty Warner. Their philosophy was to establish a first-rate real estate company sensitive to their customers’ needs. They felt that if they treated the customers fair and square, they would keep coming back and bring others with them. That is exactly what happened.
Duke Warner Realty's brokers share this philosophy, and today the firm is widely-known for its personalized service and reliability. Unlike many real estate firms, Duke Warner Realty has little turnover in personnel. Years after a transaction is complete, a client, their relative or friend can return knowing that he or she will find the same personal care – and most likely, the same broker !
With this kind of reputation, Duke Warner Realty’s success has endured through good times and bad. The company is here to stay, and its brokers are interested and actively involved in our wonderful community.
