Thank-You For Your Business & Happy Easter From The Cascade Team Real Estate!

Though we may not have spoken recently,
there is a point I want you to know.
The referrals that you’ve sent to me

  The term "Hot Real Estate Market" doesn't even do the situation justice any longer. March was easily the priciest month for real estate in the Puget Sound region’s history, and we haven’t yet reached the peak home buying season. In Fact: King County’s median single-family home hit a new high of nearly $600,000 in March — about double the prices seen at the bottom of the housing bust five years ago.
