2017 was, yet again, a strong seller’s market! Our real estate continues to increase in price, keeping the Seattle metropolitan and its surrounding areas at the top of our Nations real estate markets. Experts agree that the shortage of inventory continues to create this result. Looking forward to 2018, this trend has shown no signs of changing in that respect. This abundance of savvy buyers are still looking, there simply is not enough out there for them to buy.
How does that translate to you as a homeowner?
Spring may still be peak home-shopping season, since most families want to move when the kids are out of school. Yet, it actually pays to list in the winter, when buyers tend to have more urgency: One study found that average sellers net more above asking price during the months of December, January, February, and March than they do from June through November, and homes listed in the Winter sold faster than those posted in the Spring.
That means: Now is the time to sell your home!
Buyers want to buy it and you should absolutely take advantage of that demand.

A West Seattle charmer, this home has uninterrupted views of the entire Puget Sound. A beauty from entry to exit, this home was a perfect fit for my clients. I have worked with this family for years, and it was a pleasure finding them another perfect property for their collection. Savvy investors are my forte. I sincerely enjoy working with my investor clients to enhance and grow their portfolios. I am always proud to have their trust and enjoy helping them in their quest for success.
An enormous thank you to Christopher Sayre, at Chase Bank, for his exceptional work on this transaction. As well as the title team at First American Title and the closing team of Galvin Realty Law Group. Great team work is always appreciated.
Repeat business is always the result of exceptional work. This was no exception.
This home sale was fantastic from start, to finish. I met this family after they had a failed attempt at listing their property for sale on the open market. They were frustrated and looking for alternative options. After spending quite some time listening to what they wanted to achieve, I was able to help them find the best solution to meet all of their needs. I assessed the property and recommended to them that their property may be better suited to an investor or builder, rather than a family looking for a home to live in.
They agreed this was the case and asked me to find them a buyer off-market. Because I work with so many builders and investors, I was able to find a buyer for this property within days at the price they were looking for and also allow them ample time and the funds necessary in advance, to find a new house to buy.
Thank you to the title and escrow teams at Chicago Title. A great job on this one, thank you.
All parties were happy and successful in this venture.
