The Central Oregon Builders Association says the Tour of Homes puts millions of dollars back into our local economy. Event organizers say the free tour attracts an estimated 10,000 to 20,000 people. Tim Knopp with COBA says the tour highlights 39 amazing homes and starts this Friday. He says even though the recession has hit our local economy; the "COBA Tour of Homes" is still well attended and billed as the largest "Open House" event in Central Oregon. "Central Oregon has been impacted as bad as any place in the country; yet we are continuing to survive and there is demand out there and there's still value in building a quality home."
The free tour is on July 15th thru the 17 and July 22nd-through the 24th.
