Greetings, residents and real estate enthusiasts of Bend, Oregon! We hope this email finds you well as we delve into the latest developments and trends in the local real estate market. An important upcoming change for the Bend, Oregon real estate market is the home energy score report card requirement. Starting July 1, 2023, you will need to complete a home energy score report card for buyers to review before you list your home. Check out this short video where Mark talks about this new requirement. Also featured in this video is Geoff Harris with Solaire Homebuilders. Geoff explains what a net zero home is.

Places in and around the Old Mill District
This summer celebrates the 100th anniversary of one of Bend’s iconic mill sites, Brooks-Scanlon Lumber Co. Mill B. Check out this newsletter by The Deschutes Historical Society which has an interesting article about the history of the lumber mills in Bend. In honor of the Old Mill District, we made that our topic for June’s edition of “Bend Homes Now Recommends.” These are some of our favorite places to eat and drink in and around the Old Mill District.
|Mark’s Pick: Crosscut – Warming Hut No. 5|
566 SW Mill View WayBend, OR 97702
Why it’s great: The indoor and outdoor spaces are great. They serve craft beer, cider, kombucha, nitro coffee, and wine. They also have a whiskey collection which Mark loves. It’s a family environment and dog friendly on the patios and garden area. The food truck selection is a bonus too.
Brooke’s Pick: Anthonys
475 SW Powerhouse Dr.Bend, OR 97702
Why it’s great: Anthony’s at the Old Mill District sits alongside the Deschutes River providing a beautiful happy hour environment. Brooke likes their salads, wine, and cocktail selection. Sitting in the bar area with the doors opened up to their outdoor area on the river is magical this time of year.
Kate’s Pick: Monkless
803 SW Industrial WayBend, OR 97702
Why it’s great: The Brasserie at Monkless Belgian Ales is a highly curated restaurant and taproom that fuses the delicious tastes of European Cuisine and intentionally pairs them with Monkless’ award-winning Belgian-style ales. Situated on the Deschutes River, The Brasserie offers some of the most impressive views the city of Bend has to offer. A great place for outdoor dining and beer drinking this summer.
