King Count Housing Inventory Increases More Than 62%
Total Area Inventory Up 24.5%

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

Matt Deasy, president of Windermere Real Estate/East, Inc. said his analysis of single family home sales in King County reveals 7 out of 10 properties that sold during May had 15 or fewer days on the
Are you ready to begin getting your home in top condition to sell? There are a few steps every homeowner should take before listing your home to maximize the chances of getting a high offer. From decluttering and cleaning to fixing broken items and painting, the following actions can help dramatically when trying to sell your house.
1. Declutter Everything
Organizing your space will help prospective buyers visualize the home with their own things in it. Clutter, knick-knacks, and stuffed closets make it much harder for buyers to see how they could make it their own.
2. Have Extra Light Bulbs On Hand
All lights will need to remain on when your house is being shown. Having an extra stock of light bulbs ensures buyers can see
In today’s changing market, there’s more to a successfulclosing than just getting the offer accepted. Make sure you have anagent 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.
That minute has become 10 seconds or less and happens on a buyer’s mobile device nowhere near the listing. If buyers do not like what they see, no amount of open house signs will get them into your listing — they will swipe left and move on.
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.

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
