Top-Ranked Seller’s Market

We are the place to sell! Zillow has just ranked the Seattle area as the 9th best market for homeowners selling their home. This is no surprise, as we’re seeing homes here stay on the market for a much shorter time and sell at prices very close (or greater than) their last listing price.

If you’ve considered selling in 2013, now is the time to seriously think about it. The Northwest Multiple Listing Service reported that homebuyers in western Washington made offers on 5,314 homes last December, outnumbering the 3,857 owners who listed their homes for sale. These numbers tell the story of our unique, current market. Home inventory is depleted to record lows, so multiple offers are coming in and keeping home prices edging up.

To have a market analysis of your home and suggestions about preparing it for the day you choose to sell, please call. We’re happy to help you get started!
