Seattle Area Home Prices Up 7.4%

Blog by Kristen Meyer | January 30th, 2013

The lack of available homes for sale and ferocious buyer demand driven by historically low interest rates is pushing home values back up in the Seattle area.  Many Seattleites have been staying put because of fear they would lose significant money on a sale of their homes.  The market conditions have changed dramatically.  As the spring real estate season is around the corner, now could be the perfect time to make that move.

When people ask me when is the best time to move, I tell them the same answer - the right time to make a move is when it's the right time in your life. Sure, you need to understand the market conditions so that you can be an informed seller or buyer, but often people get so caught up in trying to time the market that they end up not getting into the neighborhood they'd "rather live in".  Or, they suffer through raising 2 kids in a 1 bedroom condo. 

Don't be afraid to ask.  If you think it might be the time to sell your home and you need to know what it's worth in today's market, I invite you to call me today for a confidential Pre-Listing phone consultation.  See if it's time for you to take advantage of this unique market to list your home and go where you really want to be!  Kristen Meyer 206-353-7625.
