These are days we long for in the Pacific Northwest—that keep us going during January’s darkest days and the constant drizzle of March: summertime. From the bluest hues across the sky to the sparkling water of the Puget Sound, Lake Washington, and beyond, it’s finally that time of year.
And the heat can be found in our real estate market, too. Buyers looking to take advantage of historically low interest rates have flooded the market, and a lack of inventory has favored sellers who are often facing multiple-offer situations. Compared to this time last year, home prices are up across the region, with Seattle seeing an eight percent increase, Bainbridge Island a 16 percent increase, and homes on the Eastside—more than a 30 percent increase. With the guidance of a local expert, like Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty’s team of global real estate advisors, you can position your home to sell for an optimal price, as well as guide buyers to successfully submitting a winning offer on their dream home.
