Sunriver Oregon has always been a popular vacation destination but has now become Oregon's most popular place to stay while working from home. Over the last year of the pandemic, more people than ever before have been working from home and using Zoom to attend meetings, classes, and events.
This has led many Oregonians to buy second homes or to go on vacation away from the big city permanently since they're able to telecommute through Zoom. And with that, it's become harder to get a home in one of Oregon's most beloved vacation spots. It's not just Sunriver either. Across the Beaver State, vacation homes are running out of housing stock.
According to an article at Willamette Week, more than 50% of homebuyers in Sunriver are from California. In the third quarter of 2020, saw the most home sales since 2007.
