The 2024 COBA Tour Of Homes Is Forthcoming

Central Oregon Real Estate - COBA Tour Of Homes

The 2024 COBA Tour Of Homes Is Forthcoming!

The annual Central Oregon Builders Association (COBA) Tour Of Homes is set to take place this July…

2024 COBA Tour Of Homes

FREE Admission
July 12-14 & 19-21, 2024
Fridays: 12 pm – 6 pm, Saturdays & Sundays: 10am– 5 pm

The tour is a fantastic opportunity to see new homes throughout central Oregon – potentially including some 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 a real estate broker). In those days I was simply attending to see the latest design trends. However, I was also able to discover places I wouldn’t normally have had access to –  such as some of our destination resorts and gated ranch communities.

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 10). They are also available that Wednesday (and sometimes the Tuesday prior) for free at the COBA office @ 1051 NE 4th St, Bend, OR 97702. Most of the homes on the tour should have complimentary copies of the guide as well.

The online guide should appear at that same week. COBA 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 to be 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!
