May 2012 Sales Strongest in 7 years!
Our market is constantly changing. What we are seeing now in the greater Seattle area is a strong seller's market. Low inventory and record low interest rates along with an increase in hiring in the Puget Sound area has caused quite a stir in our housing market. Multiple offers are common. Short sales and foreclosures are down. Demand remains strong. Sales at Coldwell Banker Bain Bellevue are at levels not seen in the past 7 years. Sellers are slowly listing homes for sale and buyers are often jockeying for best position to purchase a home. Pre-inspections, escalation clauses and personal letters to sellers are now part and parcel of the buying process. Those buyers who think they can find a home and negotiate on their own will soon discover the hard way that a savvy Realtor is their best strategy for finding and purchasing a great home in this competitive market. If you want great results in buying or selling a home, give me a call: 206.383.3119. My experience will go a long way in helping you achieve your housing goals.
