One of the causes of the housing bubble 10 years ago was the increase of housing inventory to a 10-12 month supply. This over supply caused prices to fall. Today we have a 4.4 month supply of homes for sale, nowhere near the amount we had pre-bubble! Let's chat about what that means in our market!

Not every town in the world can boast a great bakery, but Artisan Bakery Café is one of the reasons Medford is such a delicious place to live. Artisan Bakery Café is the only full-line bakery in Southern Oregon and it’s the home of weekly coffee chats between old friends and the occasional donut dash. Locals are known to visit the bakery on certain days of the week to stock up on their favorite breads and take them back to their Medford property: Mondays are for Multigrain, Tuesdays are reserved for Artisan Black, Wednesdays smell like Focaccia, celebrate Thursdays with Jewish Egg and toast the end of the work week with Cinnamon Chip Swirl.
Artisan Bakery Café bakes sourdough loaves every weekday morning and specializes in all kinds of baked desserts and gluten-free foods. Try their giant cookies, raspberry bars and yellow frosted cupcakes.
If you’re in town for breakfast, try a Savory Quiche with your Snickers Espresso. For lunch, try the Mealy Marissa sandwich: sliced turkey breast on a bed of greens, topped with Havarti cheese, dijon mustard and cranberry conserve. Yum!
Artisan Bakery Café is located near downtown Medford property at 1325 Center Dr., Suite 106 in Medford. To find out what’s in the ovens, call (561) 245-3500. For more information, visit Artisan Bakery on the web.
Nature’s beauty is truly in abundance near any Medford home. There are many opportunities to get out and enjoy some fresh air, explore this beautiful area, and try new things. One such adventure worth taking a look at is a trip with Rogue River Journeys. This company offers both rafting and kayaking trips and has been in operation since 1989. These rafting trips are truly memorable and offer stellar, experienced guides, the best equipment, and delicious regionally sourced food.
Many different trips are available to Medford home owners and all other interested guests. Most adventures are three or four days long and include a cozy combination of camping and lodging. Shorter half day and full day trips are also available. If none of those sound like a good fit, all are welcome to call and inquire about a custom trip. Be sure to schedule a trip early, as spots fill up quickly, especially in the summer months. July and August are the warmest months in this part of the country, and therefore fill up the fastest. This is a wonderful way for residents new and old to explore more of this area, as well as a grand expedition in which to take out of town visitors. Check out Rogue River Trips for more information.
