The 2022 COBA Tour Of Homes Is Forthcoming!
July 15-17,2022 and July 22-24,2022
Fridays: 12 pm – 6 pm | Saturdays & Sundays: 10 am – 5 pm
The tour is a fantastic opportunity to see new homes throughout central Oregon – potentially including some within areas that are normally gated. It’s also a great way to see what different builders are doing. I’ve been going on the Tour since 2004 (when I was working as an architect – long before I was ever a real estate broker). In those days, I was going simply to see the latest design trends. But I also got to discover places that I wouldn’t normally have had access to – like Brasada Ranch, Pronghorn, and Ranch At The Canyons.
The tour is completely FREE and self-guided. Simply show up to any of the homes on the tour days to check them out. See as many (or as few) as you like!
Printed guides are generally made available in the Bend Bulletin newspaper the Wednesday before the first weekend of the tour (this year that will be Wednesday, July 8). They are also available that Wednesday (and sometimes the Tuesday prior) for free at the COBA office at 1051 NE 4th St, Bend, OR 97702. Additionally, once they are released, I will have some copies at our Bend & Sunriver offices. Additionally, most of the homes on the tour will have complimentary copies of the guide.
The online version of the guide should appear on the COBA website that same week. COBA typically doesn’t make the list of homes available prior to that week because many of the homes are new builds and their substantial completion is one of their requirements for being on the tour. Inevitably some will not be able to make the deadline and will therefore not appear in the guide.
I really can’t recommend the tour enough. It’s a great way to see what local builders are doing – both from production and custom standpoints. And if you are new to central Oregon, it’s a fantastic way to familiarize yourself with the area.
Hope to see you on the tour!
