Trossachs Home Headlines

1. When is the best time to sell?

For six straight years we have found that the highest average price per Sq Ft sales have happened for homes CLOSED in the month of April. That means these homes were typically listed no later than March for an April closing. We had a recent transaction in Trossachs in which the seller received an offer for a closing in April but wanted to push the closing/occupancy until mid-June due to their children being in school. The buyer couldn’t wait and walked, and that seller ended up taking $75,000 LESS right here in Trossachs waiting for a June close date. As they say, “Timing is Everything” and in some cases it can certainly be a lot of money. In hindsight those clients admit they should have sold in April and rented a place if needed. They would have still been much farther ahead.

Road construction may become an issue, but we will have to see how that pans out, but overall the market is healthy with high demand for Sammamish and prices should continue their upward momentum will into 2021!
