Looking for a rental property in Central Oregon? There are a lot of reasons to think about Redmond as your relocation option: Here’s why we’re big fans, and what advantages the city brings to the table.
Redmond has many of the features that make Bend such a great place to live, but on a somewhat smaller, cozier scale. You may find it’s easier to get to know people in Redmond, and the city prides itself on retaining its “hometown” feel even as it has greatly expanded to a bigger city in recent years. Downtown Redmond has a lot to offer and other common attractions in the surrounding area include:
Another significant benefit to relocating to Redmond is the rental price range: The cost of living in Redmond for residents is a bit lower than that of Bend, and this applies to rentals as well. Those looking for Redmond rentals will be pleased to discover a variety of price ranges with more affordable options than Bend usually has – and a friendly community delighted to welcome new members.
Along with better comparative pricing, Redmond has another advantage for those looking for the right rental: Availability is usually better. Bend’s rental market is heavily saturated, with a 2% or less vacancy rate, which can make it very difficult to find a rental in the city. Redmond offers a bit more flexibility here, with lower vacancy rates that mean it’s often easier to find a rental, especially if you have a certain location in mind. Additionally, there are a variety of rentals to choose from with a variety of square foot options and floor plans available, from a one-bedroom apartment to multiple bedroom home.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the other big advantage to Redmond: Easy access to the Redmond airport! Redmon’s luxurious airport (RDM) offers comfortable lobbies, top-notch cuisine while you wait, and efficient terminal services. It’s the primary airport center on this side of the state, so if you travel frequently for business or pleasure it’s nice to be located nearby.
