This time of year I start to yearn for a pool. The weather is getting warmer and I think about sitting outside in the sunshine and taking a cooling dip in the water. I just listed a home up in Gleneden that is just the thing – a lovely yard and pool. This spacious home on 1 1/2 lots in a quiet neighborhood is just what you’ve been looking for! The open formal living room has a fireplace and the dining area has slider to lovely deck overlooking the meticulously landscaped backyard with a nice patio and pool – perfect outdoor living and ideal for Summer entertaining! You will also enjoy the breakfast bar; newer appliances (all of which stay including the refrigerator, washer & dryer); updated main bath with slab granite vanity top, new toilet, light, sink & faucet; spacious family room in the lower level with another fireplace; large store room; brand new roof; new exterior paint two years ago & much, much more!

End of year sales show the best numbers since 2007! Total sales for 2015 came in at 6,683 (single family homes on less than one acre including condominiums). 2015 total sales were up 17.7% over 2014 when 5,829 sales were reported. The average sales price for 2015 was $197,593 up 6.1% from 2014’s average selling price of $186,251. The median price was up 7.1%, $179,900 vs. $168,000.
Inventory continues to be a problem. As of the first of the year the inventory stood at 1,491 properties, down 20.6% from the first of the year in 2015. New construction sales for 2015 totaled 714, up 9.7% over 2014’s total of 651.
I believe the market will continue along its slow steady increase of units sold and prices on the rise. If inventory continues on the decline, however, we could see prices really start to take off again. Now is definitely the time to buy as rates are still hat historic lows, but likely to rise by the end of the year and prices are still reasonable. It is a good time to sell, also as there are good, qualified buyers out there looking for well-priced homes. If you are thinking about buying or selling, now may be the time. Call me today and let’s explore the market to see if it is the time for you to sell and/or buy! You can reach me, Sabrina, at 509.879.8800.

The stages of life often call for upsizing and downsizing. I just listed a wonderful rancher on the South Hill that is close to great schools, shopping and restaurants. The owners are ready to downsize and move to be closer to their children and grandchildren on the coast. It is going to create a wonderful opportunity for a new family to upsize into this meticulously maintained one-owner rancher. This home features formal living room with fireplace, formal dining room, spacious family room and informal dining area addition off the updated kitchen with slider to the back deck overlooking the gorgeous landscaped backyard, lower level family room with fireplace, tons of room and many nice updates throughout!
