I’ve Got Sunshine…

on a Rainy Day…

Even though we’re in for grey skies and rainy days for much of the winter, here is a ray of sunshine to lift your spirits. The Seattle real estate market is picking up. I’ve seen it on the front lines: listings are selling quickly and hot properties are igniting bidding wars. Now we have some fresh data to back it up.

Windermere Real Estate is proud to partner with Gardner Economics to create a detailed analysis of the Western Washington real estate market.

This graph shows the price change year over year and it looks to me like we may just be scratching our way out of the depreciation we’ve seen in the last few years.  It’s only one year of growth but it’s certainly shift in the right direction.

Read the full report here: The Gardner Report

Numbers alone do not always give an accurate picture of local economic conditions; therefore the report’s goal is to provide an explanation of what the statistics mean and how they impact the Western Washington housing economy.

So how does this affect you? I would be happy to answer your questions and provide a detailed analysis of the home you want to sell or the area where you’re looking to buy.

Can you dig it? Let’s talk!
