  • King Count Housing Inventory Increases More Than 62%
  • Total Area Inventory Up 24.5%
  • Buyers rejoiced at lower interest rates in May.
  • Volume of new listings, and the number of closed sales – both showed slight gains from a year ago.

Home buyers are “better off,” but market is heating up.

KIRKLAND, Washington (June 6, 2019) – The housing market in western Washington may not be as hot as it was last spring, but it is heating up, suggested one industry leader in commenting on the latest statistics from Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

In today’s changing market, there’s more to a successful closing than just getting the offer accepted. Make sure you have an agent capable of guiding you from start to close!

The old school three p’s — “Plant a sign, Post on the MLS and Pray” — employed by some agents in hot markets, will not work as things begin to cool off. The adage, “You have a minute to sell your home,” beginning the moment a prospective buyer pulls up in front of a property, is no longer true.

I have been in the Real Estate field for 14 years in the Puget Sound area, and I have truly loved my time in the industry.  I love Real Estate because it gives me access to assisting in the process of prospective home owners finding the home of their dreams, as well as helping current home owners sell their home for top dollar.  Through my years in Real Estate, I have had the opportunity to learn and grow with the current market conditions, which are always in flux, and help buyers and sellers find the exact angle to maximize their desired outcomes.  My niche is behind the scenes, helping the brokers who are out in the field maximize their time.

Pricing Your Property Is A Balancing Act:

On the one hand, you want to set a listing price that maximizes interest among qualified, motivated buyers who will be willing to pay top dollar for your property. Indeed, such buyers will ultimately determine your property's top market value.

On the other hand, you do not want to set a listing price that attracts a lot of buyer prospects, but sets the stage for negotiations that result in your getting less than what your property is really worth.

Your Home's Actual Market Value

In a perfect world, your home's value would be everything you think and need it to be. However, simply put, your home's value is not determined by you, but by what the market is willing to pay for it at a given time. These
