Puget Sound area home sales, prices still strong as backlog of buyers compete for scarce inventory

  • Average Home Price in King County Hits $508,000: (1st Time over $500k)
  • Prices up 15.5% YTD
  • Buyers Continue to Compete For Scarce Inventory

Planning to buy a home sometime soon? It’s an expensive proposition, and if you need help coming up with a down payment, it’s important to know which sources you can tap to make your home-buying dreams come true. Here are four ways to borrow a down payment.

1. 401(k) retirement plans or liquid assets

Pricing is all about supply and demand. No automated valuation program found on-line can perfectly price your home. For that you need an experienced Real Estate agent who knows your market and who has a track record of success in your area. It's part art and part science, and no two agents price property the same way.

 Here are some of the steps that go into properly pricing your home.
