Thanks to a recent CNN money report we know that homes which are a quarter of a mile away from a Starbucks location benefit from Starbucks because, their prices almost always appreciate faster than those which are not as close to a Starbucks location.

Historical Data

Between 1997 and 2013 homes which are within a quarter of a mile from Starbucks saw their prices appreciate in value by an average of 96% compared to a price appreciation of 65% for other homes which were not near the famous coffee chain.

Bend Oregon Starbucks

In Bend we have three Starbucks locations at:

61470 US-97

642 NE 3rd Street

2650 US-20 Forum Shopping Center

Biggest Starbucks Effect?

Across the United States the biggest city which benefited from the Starbucks affect was Boston, where homes which are located nearby Starbucks locations saw their home values increase by 171% between 1997 and 2013, and this is about 50 percentage points more than homes in the city.

Why Does The Starbucks Effect Work?

One of the biggest reasons why the Starbucks effect works is because people associate a neighborhood as being “on the rise” when a new Starbucks is opened in the community.

What’s also interesting about the Starbucks effect is that homes which are built near Dunkin Donuts locations have also seen their prices appreciate faster than homes which are not located near the famous doughnut chain.
